I think those drivers were the Q60 driver and the MacIDE driver, weren't they?

Either way, I have so far been unsuccessful in obtaining access to these machines
but I assume once we gain access to such machines, Bartlomiej could convert the
drivers the same way he already converted the falcon, gayle and buddha drivers,
for example.

One could also just convert the drivers to libata and include them untested, the
conversion itself seems pretty little work for someone experienced with libata.
