The ATA editors will obsolete overlapped commands in ATA-8.  This will
include DMA Ready.  We are not aware of any other use for DMA Ready, so we
are asking the ATAPI community.
Is DMA Ready used by any MM ATAPI device?  The general opinion of the
members present is that because ATA/ATAPI overlap has been made obsolete,
DMA Ready is no longer needed.
If you disagree and wish to keep DMA Ready, please post an e-mail to both
the Mt Fuji and T10 reflectors.
Kind Regards,
