this was previously brought up on -current, but they suggested moving the 
topic over here.

As the subject suggests, freebsd 8.0 on amd64 does not detect all ata 
channels on nVidia nForce MCP55, unless you configure hw.pci.mcfg=0 in 
loader.conf.  There was some discussion here:

and more here:


If there is a developer interested in fixing this, I have a machine running 
8.0 off a flash disk which is displaying this problem, and can set up an 
account for remote access.

Any takers?
