Heh, having used the CMD646 in the Ultra5 for disk access, I have one
word: "ewwwww". Maybe the chip used in the T1/105 is a newer rev, but
the U5 got abysmal disk performance (due to UDMA being disabled to work
around a chip bug, AFAIR) when using the on-board CMD646.
that's why mine only ever have boot or backup disks there :-)
preferably flash drives...
