I have the same problem with Promise PDC20265 on K7T266Pro2RU and 200Go
disk but just on second channel (maybe the same for you).
It's a LBA 48 bits access problem on second channel.
After applying you're patch (just on ata-chipset.c) on FreeBSD 5.4,
everything work fine for me.
The test on channel in case of 48 bits access (ch->unit ? 0x24 : 0x20)
solve the problem.
Today i use FreeBSD 5.4 on K7T266Pro2RU (Promise PDC20265) whith RAID0
