Hmm, since I havn't been able to get my hands on the problem
(I've been running 3 systems here with tags all over since the
first report, not a single hickup yet :( ) I can't tell whats
going on, it might be that the drive somehow gets really confused
I dont know, for now those having tags problems should just
not enable it...

None so far, I've instrumented the code here, and I simply cannot
see what should go wrong (yet).

BUT recent current with the busdma'd ATA driver screws up with
tags, fix is coming as soon as I get a few hours to commit it...
