It works just great! I've changed 0x0000 to 0x0001 in XEN2_DOM0 and it's

"pciide0: bus-master DMA support present, used without full driver

What would be the advantage to port the driver at this point ?

If I do it, will you guys help/assist me in doing so ? :)

Can you point me to some doc ?
I haven't found anything except the pkgsrc developer guide.
