This was a 4.3 system -- things seem to have changed in
the source tree since then.

In 4.3, it's not possible to disable DMA, because it gets
reenabled in many places (atapi.c, etc.).

This was off-topic for -current, unless the original
poster was running 4.3-RELEASE or a RELENG_4_3_0_RELEASE...

Sorry for the confusion.
