Under 4.9-RELEASE, it works with the ata(4) driver:
Promise Ultra/Fasttrak-33 Ultra DMA 33 (UDMA2), 33 MB/sec
Promise Ultra/Fasttrak-66 Ultra DMA 66 (UDMA4), 66 MB/sec
Promise Ultra/Fasttrak-100 Ultra DMA 100 (UDMA5), 100 MB/sec
Promise Ultra/Fasttrak-100 TX2/TX4 Ultra DMA 100 (UDMA5), 100 MB/sec
Promise Ultra/Fasttrak-133 TX2/TX2000 Ultra DMA 133 (UDMA6), 133 MB/sec

never gotten that to work on any raid card. :/

With 3ware, you need to install 3dm2, which used the cli to poll
the device. 3dm2 can be configured to send notices.

What, the Promise controller? I got this years ago. I see it here
for about $30 bucks.
