Chris Johns has filed PR1382 about an issue with
using the ATA driver on qemu.


> The ATA driver issues the ATA_COMMAND_EXECUTE_DEVICE_DIAGNOSTIC command in
> rtems_ata_initialise. The qemu simulated ATA driver fails after this command is
> issued. Not issuing this command allows the initialisation to complete without
> error and allows a disk to be mounted.
> Should this command be removed from the initialisation ?
> Should qemu be queried about the issue ?
> Should a replacement test be found ?
Opinions and thoughts appreciated.
