Cheers, I will give it a try and provide feedback if "it" happens again.
Is it PATA?
Yes. This chipset doesn't have SATA, only PATA.
Ahh, ok, it's not sata_nv at all then, it's pata_amd. On the same chip, totally different controller though.
PATA doesn't normally use hard-resets as a means of error recovery - that would mean hitting the RESET line, which I don't think most controllers can do on software command (it usually only gets asserted on power up or hitting the reset button), unlike on SATA where there's a defined way to trigger a COMRESET which is mostly equivalent. Also, that resets both devices on the channel, unlike soft reset which is specific to one device.
