Description of problem:

Using hdparm --security-set-pass 

Inappropriate ioctl for device Error: 25

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel 2.6.18-128.1.10

How reproducible:

Every time

Actual results:

Error 25 shown, no password device set for the ata security settings.

Expected results:

Still happens on fedora 10's hdparm and current upstreams hdparm.

Additional info:

I'm going to continue to work on this, but I'm not sure if changes in the ATA Security would be too much changed.
