Where is special option in kernel configuration to enable DMA by default.
device drivers - ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (kernel 2.6) - Use PCI DMA by default when availible.
If it not helps try to recompile kernel with your chipset support with disabled "Generic/Default IDE support".

i think you should use Intel PIIXn chipset support because
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/.../msg03903.html
and
<*> Adaptec AIC7xxx Fast -> U160 support (New Driver)

If you don't need it disable reiserfs debug mode. it slows down system. just leave reiserfs support.

Warnings is not ERRORS. So just relax while your kernel is compiling.
