I see that 7.0-RELEASE has ATA Nvidia chipset support.  Does that not cover
the SATA nvidia chipsets of their unified MCP chipset?  I'm just curious if
this could be fixed by adding this particular chipset PCI information to
struct ata_nvidia_ident in sys/dev/ata/ata-chipset.c.  It looks MCP55 is
certainly supported but again I'm stabbing slightly in the dark since I
don't know SATA NV.

Sorry if this is totally off.  I'm new to the FreeBSD kernel but not SATA
driver development in general.  Its just a thought...
