Has anyone used xen with the nVidia nForce4 Ultra chipset and a SATA
disk? Dom0 boot hangs after the line:

ata3: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, 488397168 sectiors: lba48

I have to do a cold reboot to get my machine back.

- I'm using a custom linux-2.6.11-xen0 kernel. (x86 not x86_64)
- Everything (including SATA) works fine from a non-xen kernel. 
- Everything also works if I comment the CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_NV=y line in
my .config file.
- I'm compiling for Athlon/Duron/K7 (though my processor is an athlon64 3000+)
- Gentoo linux, though the problems occurs before FS access, so it's
probably not important

Assuming this is just as of yet unsupported, where's the best place to
politely attempt to convince the xen developers that my bug is more
important than everyone elses?
