I'm guessing that your CF-to-IDE adapter doesn't have the correct lines 
wired up for DMA to work properly, and the card indicates DMA support, 
which libata tries to use but which doesn't work. It looks like it never 
tried falling back to PIO after DMA failed. Seems like a deficiency in 
the speed-down logic?
