adev->dma_mode stores the transfer mode value not UDMA mode number
so the condition in cmd64x_set_dmamode() is always true and the higher
UDMA clock is always selected.  This can potentially result in data
corruption when UDMA33 device is used, when 40-wire cable is used or
when the error recovery code decides to lower the device speed down.

The issue was introduced in the commit 6a40da0 ("libata cmd64x: whack
into a shape that looks like the documentation") which goes back to
kernel 2.6.20.

it is patch #116 in my local working queue but I thought it would
be nice to get it upstream ahead of other patches..
