I didn't analyze the whole code but maybe this is a problem:
    sc->sc_iot.absm = &amiga_bus_stride_4swap;

You are using a bus space with a stride of 4, so the register offsets you
are using would have to be divided by 4.

A bus space with a stride of 0x100 could be useful here, but it doesn't
exist yet.

And maybe this sentence from the Readme is another problem:

"Use polling for find interrupt for devices, see FastATA Int Status

Does it mean that the FastATA controller does not generate any hardware
