>   That patch applied, except for cam/ata/ata_all.h, which failed to apply because my copy (stable/9 from Mar 22) didn't have SID_AEN defined.  But, I hand applied that piece to add SID_DMA48, and it then failed to build as follows:

Urqs, I forgot the oddness of the (rather pointless) ata(4) module

to your local ata-all.h and then manually remove the prototype for
ata_cam_begin_transaction() in it.
