I happen to have ASUS P4C800-E motherboard with Promise PDC20378 SATA150 controller. When compiling kernel with "driver atapicam" enabled and booting it, there is an error when booting kernel: 

Interrupt storm detected on "irq18: atapci1 em0": throttling interrupt source

The error is fatal (kernel doesn't boot in full).

Conflicting hardware:

atapci1: <Intel ICH5 UDMA100 controller> port 0xef90-0xef9f,0xefa8-0xefab,0xefa0-0xefa7,0xefac-0xefaf,0xefe0-0xefe7 irq 18 at device 31.1 on pci0

em0: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection, Version - 1.7.35> port 0xcf80-0xcf9f mem 0xfe5e0000-0xfe5fffff irq 18 at device 1.0 on pci2
em0: Ethernet address: 00:11:2f:c9:a7:9a
em0:  Speed:N/A  Duplex:N/A

Have ASUS P4C800-E motherboard with Promise RAID enabled and try to compile GENERIC kernel with "driver atapicam" added. Kernel panics.
