That means that no driver recognized the card.

It seems the support is in -current.  If you want to test a patch
to get this to work on the 2.0 release candidates, you could do
as follows:

% cd /usr/src/sys/dev/pci
% cvs diff -kk -r1.621 -r1.622 pcidevs | patch
% make -f Makefile.pcidevs
% cvs diff -kk -r1.9 -r1.10 aac_pci.c | patch

and make a new kernel from the result.  Please tell me if you go
ahead with this and the result works as intended.  It is probably
too late to get this included in the 2.0 release, but if this
works out I'll make sure it'll be in at least 2.1.
