The ATAPI: interface has no DMA at all

The ATA: fixes a DMA bug that should be ficed the same way for ide-scsi.
	It is just annoing to see that the Linux kernel folks first
	copied the code from ide-scsi just to create this unneeded new
	interface and later onlu fixed the bug in the copy but not in the
