Thats exactly the same as mine. According to the ATA specs I could find
on the web that result after a reset indicates no devices present. Prior
to revision 1.131 in CVS. Prior to that NetBSD didn't check the error
register at all when resetting the bus. 

Unless some other cause for the failure of these drives can be found I
think this check needs to be removed for now.
