I actually have 3 of those drives - one runs through sata_via and

(the sata_via ones *do* have :
ata3: status=0x50 { DriveReady SeekComplete }
ata3: PIO error
problems with SMART)

And once again, not enough information in the error messages
for anyone to actually do anything about it (not David's fault).

What command do you use to get that bug to pop up?

hdparm-6.5 is now available (sourceforge),
and should show all of the fancy features
of your drives for comparism between versions.
