Hi and thanks for the explanation.
Because I really need UDMA and I don't know how to properly add this controller
I tried modifying the following bit of code
aprint_normal("unknown VIA ATA controller\n");
sc->sc_wdcdev.sc_atac.atac_udma_cap = 0;
to set the sc->sc_wdcdev.sc_atac.atac_udma_cap to 5 regardless. But this gave me
DMA errors where the disks were falling back by several UDMA modes.
Any hints? Otherwise, I'll just file a PR.
Thanks again and best regards,
