Well, I think that if there is a problem then we need to work it out
ASAP, and this is not what a wiki for.  What wiki's are better suited
for is some issues that are not easily resolved, and be documented.

Let's see what the "issues" on the wiki:

 - Mis-numbered adXXX on SATA drives
This is non-issue.  It's well documented in ata(4) that you can change
the behavior by removing the anti-foot-shooting option ATA_STATIC_ID
from your kernel configuration;

 - Wrong SATA type/speed reported
More information is needed if you really want to have this problem
resolved, like atacontrol output, etc.

 - PATA/SATA co-existence
Is the PATA chip supported by the driver?  What's its PCI IDs?

Also I would like to say that it is much more useful if you will have
someone who donate the proper hardware to sos@, our Mr. ATA.  He is very
knowledgeable about the driver and ATA/SATA stuff, and a very responsive
