Some (maybe all?) of the Adaptec SATA cards used a Silicon Image "SiI" chipset, and were completely flaky unreliable junk under FBSD (the "DMA timeout" error mentioned previously.)  I think the ata developer gave up on them, thus their exclusion from the hardware list.  Check Adaptec's specs and see if you can find the chip set used.
