Does anybody know when this driver might become available?
I'm currently trying to operate a Marvell 88SX6041 with a binary only
module and read operations from multiple disks are giving me grief :(

I've noticed that sata support will be going into 2.4.27 and the patch
looks very clean. Will backporting sata support to an older 2.4.20-pre2
kernel ( be as
hassle free?
