I should have two PCI-e cards with SiI 3132 chips delivered today.
AFAIK, NetBSD doesn't have a driver for the SiI3124 or 3132, but
FreeBSD has a 3124 driver; and the Linux sil24 driver supports both
PCI-X and PCI-e cards.

I've not seen any mention of open-source ACHI drivers which support
these chips.  Have you?
