Hello.

But if you're saying that there is only DMA completion inetrrupt, you *cannot* completely emulate SFF-8038i BMDMA since its interrupt status is the (delayed) IDE INTRQ status. I suggest that you move away from the emulation -- Alan has said it's possible.

I don't see whats wrong with treating it that way if it keeps the amount
of code needed down.


For exactly that reason, I intend to continue to try to emulate it.
