libata support in kernel

I am using kernel 2.6.13-archck (patch8) and I was wondering how to rebuild it with libata support enabled. I have a sata setup and my DVD burner is very slow due to not being able to enable DMA. I tried applying a patch that I made but as I'm not to familiar with this it not surprisingly fails.

Basically all that I think is needed from looking at google is that the file 'include/linux/libata.h' be changed from:

#undef ATA_ENABLE_ATAPI              /* define to enable ATAPI support */
#undef ATA_ENABLE_PATA               /* define to enable PATA support in some
                                 * low-level drivers */
#undef ATAPI_ENABLE_DMADIR   /* enables ATAPI DMADIR bridge support */

to:

#define ATA_ENABLE_ATAPI             /* define to enable ATAPI support */
#define ATA_ENABLE_PATA              /* define to enable PATA support in some
                                 * low-level drivers */
#define ATAPI_ENABLE_DMADIR  /* enables ATAPI DMADIR bridge support */

Can anyone supply a patch or a way to implement this in dibblethewrecker's PKGBUILD?
