FWIW the following modified version of your patch is now in my atang tree:

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH] via82cxxx: don't use UDMA on VIA UDMA33 controller with Transcend SSD

Don't use UDMA on VIA UDMA33 controller with Transcend SSD.

The computer locks up if Transcend SSD runs in any of UDMA modes.
It doesn't lockup with different brand SSD, so this is specific to Transcend.

bzolnier:
- limit it to VT82C586A/B + TS64GSSD25-M (per commit 10734fc) for now
- add warning message

Looks good to me.

That sounds odd - I think I'd have put ": not using UDMA mode as lockups
have been reported with this device" or similar.

Ackity-ack

For compatibility reasons the warning message has been kept identical to
the one used by pata_via driver (please see commit 10734fc for details 8)..
