I have merged these patches into the current Fedora kernel for AMD64,
hopefully it will stay there until release, in which case, it should ship
with an errata kernel for i386 users as well.

It is in the install image for x86_64, when I get some spare cycles I will
do an install image for i?86 with this kernel.
Which sata chipsets are we looking for? I've got a wide range of SI,
ICH5, Promise, Highpoint, and God knows what else. Other than a few
wierd software raid SATA controllers, and one ebedded promise
controllers it all works with the libata patches.
There is no such thing as obsolete hardware.
Merely hardware that other people don't want.
