Well, the only thing that changes the sata_mv driver in the -mm1 patchset is the "git-libata-all.patch" patch, so you might start out just applying that one broken-out patch and verifying that it fixes things for you.

That's git commit 2086a4aa2b41846801fad01f0fb1723134865ebb from Jeff's libata tree.

At that point, if that fixes it for you, you'd be best off bisecting it in Jeff's libata tree using git, to figure out what it is that fixed things. Jeff?

There were a bunch of sata_mv fixes in git-libata-all, all of which are actually now in your linux-2.6.git tree. This latest libata push gets sata_mv working on my 6042 card, and in the process fixes several bugs I found while doing the 6042 work.

Post-pull, git-libata-all is down to just a few development patches, none of which involve sata_mv.

In any case, one could be lazy, and simply bisect the main tree (and/or simply verify that the problem is gone in 2.6.16-git<today>).
