Just ran into the CF problem you describe when implementing support for
CompactFlash on AVR32 using an old 32 MB TwinMos card. Works fine with
this patch applied; without it, libata gives up after failing to set
xfermode (err_mask=0x1).

Actually, I don't see any errors, but the card comes up in PIO0 mode
(which is correct behaviour as far as I can tell):

ata1: PATA max PIO0 cmd 0xA4800000 ctl 0xA480000E bmdma 0x0 irq 67
scsi0 : pata_pcmcia
ata1.00: CFA, max PIO0, 62592 sectors: LBA
ata1.00: ata1: dev 0 multi count 0
ata1.00: configured for PIO0
scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access     ATA      32MB CHH         Rev  PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

Thanks for the patch. I would probably have spent a long time debugging
this without it.
