adaptec 29160 as module (on amd64) ?

I got a 29160 (no extension) and put it in my amd64 machine;
ahc is currently compiled as module and not into kernel.

kldload -v ahc
loads ahc and cam but gives nothing in dmesg:

amd64# kldstat | egrep -E '(ahc|cam)'
 3    1 0xffffffffa7b2d000 19bde    ahc.ko
 4    2 0xffffffffa7b47000 2a98e    cam.ko
amd64# dmesg | egrep -i -E '(adaptec|ahc)'

here is the output of

amd64# pciconf -l -v
none2 at pci0:14:0:        class=0x010000 card=0xe2a09005 chip=0x00809005 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Adaptec Inc'
    device   = '29160/N/LP Ultra160 (AIC-7892A) SCSI Host Adapter'
    class    = mass storage
    subclass = SCSI


amd64# camcontrol devlist -v
scbus-1 on xpt0 bus 0:
<  >                               at scbus-1 target -1 lun -1 (xpt0)

I does not recognize the attached DLT8000.

Giving <ctrl>+<a> while booting does recognize the tape device.

Either I am missing something or ahc is not supposed to be
working as module (on amd64) ?
