It's not guaranteed to work (it could freeze the machine at boot if it
doesn't), but if you haven't tried yet, you could attempt to set the
force-DMA flag 0x0001, i.e.:

pciide* at pci? dev ? function ? flags 0x0001   # GENERIC pciide driver

I have to do this for an unsupported chip (VT6415, kern/45917), but it
fortunately works fine for me.
