Subject: Using ATAPI 6 "SET MAX EXT" Command and HDIO_DRIVE_CMD ioctl

Is there a way to issue the ATAPI 6 "SET MAX EXT" command using the HDIO_DRIVE_CMD ioctl? As of 2.4.18 kernel, there doesn't seem to be a way to write the high order bytes to the IDE controller to implement the command for a 48bit LBA drive. Would HDIO_DRIVE_TASKFILE work instead?
