NetBSD 1.6ZK NetBSD 1.6ZK (BOCK) #7: Mon Feb 23 10:40:48 EST 2004 i386

Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	I've been trying to use
	satalink*      at pci? dev ? function ?
	on the ASUS A7N8X motherboard with a SiI 3112A SATARaid controller.

	Upon boot, the kernel finds the following:

	satalink0: port 0: device present, speed: 1.5Gb/s
	wd0 at atabus0 drive0 <WDC WD360GD-00FNA0>
	wd0: drive supports 16-sector PIO transfers, LBA48 addressing
	wd0: 35304MB, 71730 cyl, 16 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 72303840 sectors
	wd0: 32-bit data port
	wd0: drive supports PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2, Ultra-DMA mode 6 (Ultra/133)
	wd0(satalink0:0:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 6 (Ultra/133) (using DMA data transfers)

	and that's it.  It just sits there, hung.
	Taking satalink out of the kernel and trying to just use the generic
	pciide will not work:  the kernel will not find a root device.

	Note that using an older kernel (1.6X) the generic pciide works fine for
	the sata drive.
	Build a GENERIC kernel for 1.6ZK.
	Try to boot a system with a SATA drive attached.
