Hmm. Lopoking at OpenBSD source, they added support for HT-1000 ide
and sata to their pciide.c on 2005-10-18:

The frodo4/frodo8/HT-1000 all seem to use the same chip map, but the
HT-1000 IDE uses the pre-existing "serverworks" chip map. So HT-1000
SATA should be easy to add (if we don't have it already?) using the
same PCI IDs as OpenBSD?
