Hello there. I have one SATA300 TX4 PCI Controller in use from about 2
years in my SMB serwer running celeron 1Ghz and 2 x WDC WD2500YS-01SHB0
(250GB each). Disks are under controll of gmirror with UFS2 fs.. When
stable branch was 6.x I had problems similiar to described here:
In practice - at heavy load, after some timeouts, one of disk drives
disconnects and controller doesn't recognize any disks at this sata
channel untl reboot.
Howewer, no problems occured since I've upgraded Freebsd to 7.x.
