$ grep inherits drivers/ata/pata_hpt37x.c
        .inherits       = &ata_bmdma_port_ops,
        .inherits       = &hpt370_port_ops,
        .inherits       = &ata_bmdma_port_ops,
        .inherits       = &hpt372_port_ops,

Looks like 16-bit port_ops.

Interesting. I have no issues with DMA modes, with VIA VT6421A (this
chip seems to have other critical problems), with CS5536 (PATA) and with
SIL3512 (the patch has to be applied in big-endian mode, and another
patch to sata_sil.c must be applied because IXP4xx can't do 8/16-bit
PCI MMIO read).
