I have just committed a rather hacked up driver for the ATA100/kauai ide controller in the newer macs (PBG4 12/17, PowerMac G4 1.24/1.42, imac???) The driver has support for UDMA mode, but I do not have the proper settings for the various speed drives, so DMA modes are currently disabled. If you have access to machines which have this ide controller in it you are encouraged to test this and send results with dmesg to me. Hopefully the driver can be cleaned up and DMA modes enabled soon.(from list archives) "
Hey, this looks like it should be a big help to all of you OpenBSD-macppc people out there. Please test this patch and help Dale refine it.
