Sorry Aaron, but I have left Microsoft Open Source team for a while. Due to policy limitations, I can't touch Linux kernel source now. 

Hi Hashir, could you help find current owner of our HDD driver to verify this fix? This is a ata-acpi module bug I reported last year. Our daily BVT in linux-next tree should be able to handle this verification

Here is the patch, apply on top of the ZPODD patch set.

Hi Fuzhou,
Can you please give it a test? Thanks.
I tested on my system with a ATI IDE controller and it could work with pata_acpi module.
