I committed support for that couple of days ago:

ata-chipset.c: revision 1.32
date: 2003/07/02 10:50:44;  author: sos;  state: Exp;  lines: +114 -46
Update the SATA support code to work more correctly with
real SATA disks now that I can test it.

Add support for the SiI 3112 SATA chip using memory mapped I/O.
Update the support for the SiI 0680 to use the memio interface as well.
