Subject: Re: Fwd: libata-pmp patch for 3.2.x and later for eSATA Port Multiplier

Hello Gwendal,

I want to confirm one thing.
The kernel 3.1.x driver still works?

It seems to take long time to solve the problem. Of course I understand
staggered spin-up is better solution. But I can't wait it so long. And
it affects only SiI3726 only.

Best Regards,
