I don't think this patch is correct, for a couple of reasons:

	* Do you know if this SATA controller is actually based on the
	  i31244 SATA chip (Artisea)?  If it is not, then you should not
	  be using artisea_chip_map.

	* If you're using artisea_chip_map, then why did you add cases for
	  the 82801ER in the piixide channel setup routine?
