ATA/IDE disk access using PIO and interrupt

Thanks for your reply.
I tried to assign IRQ number as 14 and test the IDE driver on i386. I can
see the BSP_install_rtems_irq_handler() is successful. However, I don't see
any interrupt is triggered: I added a printk in ata_interrupt_handler, but
no debug message were seen.
By reading ata.c, I understand ata_process_request() will process I/O
requests from controller's queue. But I don't see the DMA operations are
initiated here. So question: where are the DMA operations initiated?
In ata.c, the ata_interrupt_handler() will send an ATA_MSG_GEN_EVT message
to ata_queue_task(). In ata_queue_task(), I can see ATA_COMMAND_TYPE_PIO_IN
request is handled, so as the ATA_COMMAND_TYPE_PIO_OUT and
ATA_COMMAND_TYPE_NON_DATA. However, I don't see ATA_COMMAND_TYPE_DMA is
handled. Is it because the interrupt represents the completion of DMA
I look forward your reply.
