Other pages say that SATA/PATA TCQ will never be supported, yet this page talks about chips which do or don't support TCQ, or "supports TCQ but not NCQ".

If this is a "hardware status" page, then fine, talk about chips which could potentially have TCQ drivers and which could not. But it is "Hardware and driver status". The entry for a chip thus corresponds to the hardware AND the driver, and shouldn't say it supports TCQ when it doesn't, IMHO.

It's probably incorrect/misleading. At the very least it's confusing.

unless the drivers really do support TCQ, in which case the date of its merging should be posted elsewhere on the wiki.
