Had, briefly, enough to copy over data, then I installed a new kernel a 
copla days ago and poff, drives are gone. Channels show up with 
'atacontrol list' though - but with no devices.

That file doesn't exist in my source tree. It did at some point though, 
because 'locate' tells me it used to be there ;)

Very good. I'm seeing the same issue with a kernel from 2 days ago. A 
kernel from 2 weeks ago works fine. I'll just wait for a fix, can't be 
too far away I guess.

Btw, to you with this board - it's the one with onboard Ultra320 SCSI, 
right? Did you ever try the ZCR 2015S add-on? It's not working on 
FreeBSD for amd64 - kernel panic while booting. The maintainer is having 
a look at it, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Interesting. I suppose a reboot isn't too far away, then.
