Well, yes. But there was an extremely large gotcha on 2.6.14 with ata passthru patches: Using *any* captive mode test in some (all?) chipsets (ICH5R known bad) would cause severe pain, as the kernel ended up disabling the IRQ line.
So, if you like to smartctl -d ata -C -t anything /dev/sdx, you better test that in single user mode, and everything either mounted RO or unmounted, and with proper access to a reset button for the box :)
