You could perhaps try:

# /sbin/mknod ata c 159 0 root:operator

(This is from 4.8, but afaik this should be pretty standard). It's very odd
that you don't have /dev/ata and that MAKEDEV doesn't recognise it as a
valid device! I've just tried a quick search on freebsd-bugs but nothing is
standing out as relevant.

If that succeeds then hopefully you can (finally) see what atacontrol list
