Silicon Image SiI 3114 SATA RAID on ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe

Is anyone using the Silicon Image SiI 3114 controller on an ASUS P5GD2
Deluxe motherboard?  AFAICS, FreeBSD 5.3 supports the controller, but
I can't seem to get the installer to see the SATA RAID 1 array that I
set up using the BIOS.  The only disks in the system are two identical
200G Seagate drives, and I used the in-ROM Silicon Image setup utility
to create a RAID 1 array with them.  When I boot using a 5.3
installation CD, it sees the SiI 3114 controller, but then presents me
with ad4 and ad6 as separate drives.  It seems my problem is much like
the one described here:

However, despite using atacontrol as described, I could not get ar0 to
persist across a reboot.

Is anyone using this particular motherboard?
