Are all Promise cards currently supported? Even their 8/16+ port
"SATA-II" RAID6 cards? PCI-Express? The list of supported controllers
suggests it maxes out at some of their more basic 4 port cards, but
maybe the bigger cards just have multiple controller chips?
The ata manpage could use a little more detail on this; if nothing else,
it should have an asterisk next to the chipsets that aren't expected to
work reliably, like the entire SiI range :)
