 Instead of just copying the files into your source tree, you should
 rename the following directories:

     sys/modules/ata sys/modules/ata-old   (if it exists)
     sys/dev/ata         sys/dev/ata-old

NOTE: Just incase you wish to go back to the old ata driver.

Then extract the ata mkII update into your source tree.
