It might warrant a update in stable, but I am not sure.  Someone need
to check what the stable release managers think about it, and if they
agree, prepare a update of etch.

Do you have time to do this?

There is also the case of getting feedback from testers.  Do this
patch solve the issue completely?  I can't test it myself, as I do not
got a machine with SATA on it. :)

Happy hacking,
