No, the code bases diverged too much since I copied the code from QEMU.
For example, in Hatari all ATAPI command code is still in this huge
switch-case statement while in QEMU, it has been refactored into
separate functions at one point in time. And since QEMU has a quite
complex block layer below the device emulation, it's also not so easy
to merge this code back into Hatari again, so I don't plan to do a
full sync for this again in the future.
