Backport of ServerWorks ATA to 4-Stable?

I was wondering if there would be a backport of the
ServerWorks GC chipset (CSB6 South bridge) to
4-Stable. I am only able to obtain "BIOSDMA" support
on my HD's and basic "PIO" support of my CD-RW.
I played around with 5.0-Current on this machine and
by utilizing 'atacontrol', I was able to get DMA mode
transfers on all of the installed media. There were
also no stability issues running in this mode either
Failing any plans by the developers to include this
support into the upcoming 4.8-Release or later -Stable
code, would it be possible to try and hack the
-Current code into -Stable myself?
Thank you for your time,
