CMDIDE(4)                  Kernel Interfaces Manual                  CMDIDE(4)

     cmdide -- CMD Technology and Silicon Image IDE disk controllers driver

     cmdide* at pci? dev ? function ? flags 0x0000
     options PCIIDE_CMD064x_DISABLE

     The cmdide driver supports the CMD Technology PCI0640, PCI0643, PCI0646,
     PCI0648, PCI0649, and Silicon Image 0680 IDE controllers, and provides
     the interface with the hardware for the ata(4) driver.

     The 0x0002 flag forces the cmdide driver to disable DMA on chipsets for
     which DMA would normally be enabled.  This can be used as a debugging
     aid, or to work around problems where the IDE controller is wired up to
     the system incorrectly.

     There's no way to reliably know if a PCI064x controller is enabled or
     not.  If the driver finds a PCI064x, it will assume it is enabled unless
     the PCIIDE_CMD064x_DISABLE option is specified in the kernel config file.
     This will be a problem only if the controller has been disabled in the
     BIOS and another controller has been installed and uses the ISA legacy
     I/O ports and interrupts.

     The PCI0646U controller is known to be buggy with Ultra-DMA transfers, so
     Ultra-DMA is disabled by default for this controller.  To enable Ultra-
     DMA, use the PCIIDE_CMD0646U_ENABLEUDMA option.  Ultra-DMA can eventually
     be disabled on a per-drive basis with config flags, see wd(4).

     The timings used for the PIO and DMA modes for controllers listed above
     are for a PCI bus running at 30 or 33 MHz.  This driver may not work
     properly on overclocked systems.
