I suspect the chip you are looking at is "just supported" since, in

        AHC_AIC7770     = 0x010,
        AHC_AIC7850     = 0x020,
        AHC_AIC7860     = 0x021,        /* ULTRA version of the aic7850 */
        AHC_AIC7870     = 0x040,
        AHC_AIC7880     = 0x041,
        AHC_AIC78X0     = 0x060,        /* PCI Based Controller */

This is in -current at least, and in 1.2 beta as well.

IMHO, the memory and processor, in that order.

I have 64, but I'm lucky.  :)
