I had this message frequently in 10.3/x6_64 and local opinion was a

it seems that it occurs but I did not find an explanation. Currently

It seemes like a controller problem to me, rather than a disk problem.
Why is is using PIO? Do you have the proper 80 pin cables?

I would open a bugzilla and try to assign it to Heo Tejun. He is
Novell's sata driver expert.

Greg

you can solve this problem (that made me definitively abandon Fedora for Suse)
simply replacing your ata controller with its non-libata counterpart: e.g. I
had to remove
sata_via in favor of vt82cxxx.
According to my readings this bug exhibits itself with controllers
that have both sata and pata ports. It's been in the kernel for many
months (maybe years) and I'm extremely surprised that it was never fixed
(as far as I can tell).
Fortunately Suse didn't make the idiot choice to remove non-libata based
drivers that Fedora did.
