The Acer controller always produces these errors on the first few
accesses (at least, it does under NetBSD, I don't know about other
OSs). It has done so ~forever.

In my mail/NAT machine, I have:

pciide0 at pci0 dev 15 function 0: Acer Labs M5229 UDMA IDE Controller (rev. 0xc

That gives me one error and a downgrade message after boot, and after that
it remains perfectly happy, so I've never investigated this.
