The problem was narrowed down to a few commits performed at a particular date and time.  My questions are: is it safe to update my kernel now? have those problems been fixed? is there something I can do to help (like testing or so)?
For whatever its worth my NF4 board finds all 4 SATA disks perfectly 
both in i386 and amd64 mode:
