 Some additional information which might be useful:
 The motherboard (Supermicro H8DCE) is described here:
 In the block diagram on page 1-8 (14), I note that the 2050 controls the second 
 ethernet interface and some of the SATA drives. Notice that the dmesg doesn't 
 indicate that the second ethernet i/f has been probed (and ifconfig -a doesn't 
 show it). The system doesn't find any drives if they are connected to the 
 "slave" SATA ports - that is, drive 1 on any of the four controllers.
 My suspicion is that somehow the 2050 isn't being properly initialized, and this 
 is at the root of all the problems I'm seeing. I don't have any PCI-E cards, so 
 I can't test that aspect of the 2050.
