Proliant ML310 ata devices on FreeBSD 4.0

I must move a FreeBSD 4.0 system to a brand new computer.

I have problems, because the target computer, Compaq Proliant ML310T, has 
an onboard ATA controller that is not handled by FreeBSD 4.0.

I may compile a new kernel, but I cannot upgrade the system to other 
versions, so I need to find a fast solution.

Is there any suggestion? Any kernel change in order to see the 
LSI/ServerWorks controller?
I see that FreeBSD 4.6 handles that controller, but I don't know what I 
should change/add in kernel, in order to have it working.

Is there any other controller perfectly running with FreeBSD 4.0? I don't 
mind to esclude the internal controller, as long as I may find another one 
perfectly compatible. Are Promise controllers compatible (let's exclude 
their RAID functions, for semplicity)? Are there other ATA model I may use?
