 That's the hex value of the status register. See sys/dev/ata/atareg.h.
 The timeout happens because the drive never cleared the busy flag,
 the code waits for (mask | WDCS_BSY) == bits.
 The names are ancient, in ATA speak WDCS_DSC is the DF (Device Fault) flag
 that says that a command couldn't be completed (in contrast to a command
 that is completed with or without an error). There are special modes
 where the DF flag and others get repurposed to signal other conditions,
 but that's not relevant here.
