  A half year ago,someone has talked about this.I searched the mail list and
found below ,and as I test, it really works fine.but cannot get its meaning
in any datasheet ;-( .

Sata should be working with the following initializing code. (verified on
two boards). Thanks!


void HT1000_SATA_init( void )
        volatile unsigned int *mmio_reg;
        unsigned int mmio_base,val32;
        int i;

        pcibios_write_config_byte( 1, HT1000_SATA, 0x70, 0x18);
        pcibios_write_config_byte( 1, HT1000_SATA, 0x78, 0x04);

        pcibios_read_config_dword (1, HT1000_SATA, 0x24, &mmio_base);

        mmio_base &= 0xfffffffc;

        mmio_reg = (unsigned int *)( mmio_base + 0x10f0 );

        * mmio_reg = 0x40000001;

        mmio_reg = ( unsigned int *)( mmio_base + 0x8c );
        * mmio_reg = 0x00ff2007;
        mdelay( 10 );
        * mmio_reg = 0x78592009;
        mdelay( 10 );
        * mmio_reg = 0x00082004;
        mdelay( 10 );
        * mmio_reg = 0x00002004;
        mdelay( 10 );
