My guess from looking at the FreeBSD dmesg (if the dmesg was accurate
enough) is that there are two onboard SATA controllers, each with two
channels (four interfaces on the motherboard).

The FreeBSD dmesg could be useful.

  Thank you.

  I'll install FreeBSD on one of the two Raidframe drives here and
send that dmesg to you/current-users or other appropriate list of
your choice. ...can't use both drives of the array here for now,
anyway. ...will even send the associated FreeBSD system source code
after that, if you like. I can't do C for kernels, yet, being a
somewhat new, self-taught and typically impoverished student of
C++ application purism.  ;-)
