"libata-dev-2.6" is a new patch queue for SATA features which are under
development, or need additional testing before being deployed into the
upstream-bound libata-2. queues.
It currently contains:
1) A workaround for problems on multiple SATA controllers when using
PATA disks attached via SATA bridges.
2) New driver AHCI. This should currently be considered a technology
preview or early beta test. Simply because it is a young driver on
complicated hardware, using a new "FIS-based" delivery method (read:
brand new hotpath), caution is advised. Do not use in production yet.
I have updated my SATA status page to reflect these updates:

[PATCH] libata basic detection and errata for PATA->SATA bridges
This patch works around an issue with WD drives (and possibly others) over SiL PATA->SATA Bridges on SATA controllers locking up with transfers > 200 sectors.
