Crippling the IDE in 2.1.111 - IDE DMA or all DMA ?

I can't be the only one to have noticed that both the IDE and the SCSI
disk corruption reports are coming from DMA driven controllers in every case.

Originally I thought that was chance but now Im wondering.

Is anyone seeing file system corruption from non DMA devices - ie non DMA
IDE, non DMA SCSI (AHA152x, AHA2920 etc) ?
