Someone know how to re-enable Serial-ATA port?

On my system (2.6.23-rc9) I have Serial-ATA DVD/RW drive connected to sata_sil controller:

[   96.858283] ata6: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
[   97.012480] ata6.00: ATAPI: TSSTcorpCD/DVDW SH-S183A, SB02, max UDMA/33
[   97.012482] ata6.00: applying bridge limits
[   97.169126] ata6.00: configured for UDMA/33

Sometimes when there is a problem with CD or DVD disk controller shutdowns drive:

I wonder is there a way to re-enable ata6.00 in other way then power down/power up whole machine because it looks like reboot is not a way to get it working again.
