Sure.  This is after I added bits in pciide.c to make it accept the
controller, just like with the TX2plus SATA controller.

pciide1 at pci0 dev 15 function 0: Promise Serial ATA/150 TX4 Controller (rev. 0x02)
pciide1: bus-master DMA support present
pciide1: primary channel configured to compatibility mode
pciide1: primary channel ignored (disabled)
pciide1: secondary channel configured to compatibility mode
pciide1: secondary channel ignored (disabled)

BTW, the TX2Plus I just bought isn't using the same PCI ID as the one
in cvs:

Promise Technology product 0x3375 (miscellaneous mass storage, revision 0x02) at pci0 dev 16 function 0 not configured

product PROMISE SATA150TX2PLUS 0x3376 Serial ATA/150 TX2plus Bus Master IDE Accelerator
