No - for MIATA GL the flag should be cleared later, as Jay suggested,
in miata_map_irq():

+ if (irq == 27) /* MIATA GL */
+ return irq;

BTW, yet another idea: since the bug affects only scatter/gather DMA, what
if we'll disable sg windows completely on affected machines? ;-)
It would be generic fix, not only for bus mastering IDE.
