By default, the PATA pins are routed to the async address lines in which

routed through the GPIO PORTs pins, we need to make sure to request them
so that the muxing is properly set up.
Andrew: could you pick this up ? it was posted over a month ago to the
Linux/IDE list w/no feedback.

Although it is disappointing that your patch was missed -- our apologies --
I don't think the best response was to elide linux-ide and the libata
maintainer, in favor of a higher noise list. :)

I have the patch queued, now.

so it's been 8 months since it was posted, 6 months since it was
queued, and multiple libata merges have been made, but this patch has
yet to make it into mainline ...

No idea how it got lost :( Just sent a pull request to Linus with this in it.
