I really don't know - you could try copying
/sys/dev/pci/{iteide.c,pciide_ite_reg.h} from current and check that

vendor ITE      0x1283  Integrated Technology Express
/* ITE products */
product ITE IT8152      0x8152  IT8152 Host Bridge
product ITE IT8212      0x8212  IT8212 IDE controller

are in your /sys/dev/pci/pcidevs (see /sys/dev/pci/Makefile if you have
to add them)

I would be lazy and just run -current ;-)
