I have a host controller with the same chipset.  I was having frequent
data corruption problems, so I asked about it on current@ a few days
ago.  so@ offered a patch (which has now been comitted), but it didn't
help.  Bottom line, he said to get a Promise SATA card.  Since I don't
want to mess around with this anymore, I went to Amazon, and ordered
one.  In looking at this output, I doubt the patch would even affect you
since you're using the new hardware revision.

For more details, check the archives for current@ for a thread with the
subject, "Recent ATA drivers giving problems with SATA."
