Sorry, seems I didn't read the relevant lines of your message.

Serial ATA works on my mainboard (with a Promise PDC20376 chip).
The probe message talks about UDMA100 instead of SATA150:

atapci0: <Promise PDC20376 SATA150 controller> port 0xa800-0xa87f,0xb000-0xb00f,0xb400-0xb43f mem 0xcd800000-0xcd81ffff,0xce000000-0xce000fff irq 17 at device 8.0 on pci0
ad4: 157066MB <HDS722516VLSA80> [319120/16/63] at ata2-master UDMA100

Can't tell what's wrong in your case.
