This error is what I mentioned in a post yesterday that mentioned several 
errors I've seen with a recent kernel built from linus' git.

The only difference is that here the kernel starts at UDMA/133 and devolves 
all the way down to PIO0 before spinning forever at that. A fully "cold" boot 
(ie: removing all power from the system for a period of several minutes and 
then powering it back on) seems to fix this problem.

I've got a kernel here built from git b036555adc but I haven't tested it yet. 
If the problem still occurs with it, I'll try to get a copy of the output 
posted here.
