The order is somewhat reversed here and I can understand why you're frustrated but I'm just trying to make things look right in long term, so feel free to bother me. :-) For temporary solution, I'm okay either way. I'll clean things up later when the necessary core changes are made. * Adding ->pmp_select or ->scr_pmp_rw or whatever callback to work around the current problem. * Duplicate code in sata_mv. Whichever way you go, can you please mark where it's different and why?
