Dead Hang/Panic trap with Promise SATA300 TX4 Controller

Some days ago I got new Promise SATA300 TX4 Controller and 2 250GB Samsung
SATA300 disks.
I've installed this pci card to my old pentium-mmx RELENG_6 ( 10 Jan 2006 )
box and one of new disks.
While trying to dump/restore my old files from UDMA33 ad0 (40GB Samsung) to
new successfully recognized ad4
system hang up deadly. So I ran few tests with dd:

1) RELENG_6 (10 Jan 2006)
a) dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/ad4 -> ran all night and no trap or panic (but due
to no small buffer speed was very low:  only 30GB have been dumped).
b) dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/ad4 bs=8m -> hang or hang with no vga signal
c) dd if=/dev/ad4 of=/dev/null bs=8m -> normal (expected) speed, no hang
d) dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad4 bs=8m -> normal speed, no hang
e) dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/ad4 bs=8m -> hang/trap immediately
e) dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/ad4 bs=8m -> hang/trap immediately

After looking up to cvs-web with recent changes to promise chipsets I've
found out that Soren changed something in the end of February, so I rebuiled
my system updated it to FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE #0: Tue Mar 14 11:07:49 MSK

2) And I've have to report that everything runs ( i mean hangs ) the same
way as before but sometimes there is a trap - not just dead hang.

I'd really like to help this debugged. So I'll follow instructions on
dump/debug and stuff to developer.

See my `dmesg` below.
