Well, right now there is no support for MCA ESDI controllers.

The FreeBSD MCA support is rather limited right now and only implemented
because I felt like it and wanted something to drive further
newbusification of various ISA only drivers.  I expect the MCA support to
remain a novelty though I'm sure some users will deply production services
on the boxes since they are quality hardware after all (only really slow).

So don't try and bring MCA into the whole lack of support for
BAD144/ESDI/MFM/RLL/foo.  :
