Well, I think "workaround" is a better term than "solution", since the
exact bug is not yet understood.  There may even be multiple bugs, since
problems with DMA shouldn't cause the kernel to make bad memory
references.  Conceivably this is due to DMA clobberage, but a software bug
in the PIO fallback code seems more likely.

It would be interesting to see if disabling DMA in the kernel without
disabling it in the bootloader works.
