Well, I am not sure if you really meant ATA_CAM and not ATAPICAM? But in
case you meant it, for people who do not use SATA-capable hardware,
ATA_CAM is useful. This laptop may be no longer be the most recent model
these days, but runs -CURRENT just fine most of the time. Also, if I
remember correctly, for people with a bit more recent controllers
ATA_CAM offers other advantages, but those do not affect me. So, for me
ATA_CAM is just a better version of the ata(4) driver...
