I was told by Manuel Bouyer that current should support it.
But it does not. See below the dmesg part for this device, with a
recognized Promise controler. Yes, the kernel has support for them,
using pdcide.c rev 1.9.

Is there any plan to support it one day? The man page already says


[dmesg for pdcide*]
Promise Technology PDC20378 SATA/150 IDE controller (RAID mass storage, 
revision 0x02) at pci3 dev 4 function 0 not configured
pdcide0 at pci3 dev 11 function 0
pdcide0: Promise Ultra100TX2/ATA Bus Master IDE Accelerator (rev. 0x01)
pdcide0: bus-master DMA support present
pdcide0: primary channel configured to native-PCI mode
pdcide0: using ioapic0 pin 23 (irq 5) for native-PCI interrupt
atabus0 at pdcide0 channel 0
pdcide0: secondary channel configured to native-PCI mode
atabus1 at pdcide0 channel 1
