Hi Soeren,

I have to thank you for the work you put in the ata driver.
After patching the 5.4 sources with the new ata mkIII
I am able to use the RAID 1 with my Adaptec SATA 1210SA.

The dmesg (the Adaptec is recognized as Sil 3112 SATA150):

Is it possible to MFC the ata mkIII from -current to 5-STABLE ?

Once again thank you!
