hmmmpf. No irq-routing-guru hanging around?

That would be the 2880's version without dual scsi (mpt(4))?
It might be a hint, that I wasn't able to get the irqs right,
if I disabled the scsi devices (bad news for you).
As far as your dmesg goes you've disabled the S-ATA controller;
you may try to enable it.

Same BIOS revision, but with SCSI and S-ATA enabled (currently
without the aac) running 5.2RC2:


that's quite different from yours.


dmesg -v would be interesting because of the more detailed
information regarding the apic/irq-routing configuration.
The problem is, that booting the amd64-kernel in verbose
mode produces a lot of ata- and acpi related garbage.
