Others have suggested running -current; an alternative is to back port
the driver from -current to 1.6.2, if the driver will work with that

pciide0 at pci1 dev 13 function 0: Silicon Image 0680 (rev. 0x02)
pciide0: bus-master DMA support present
pciide0: primary channel configured to native-PCI mode
pciide0: using irq 9 for native-PCI interrupt

and if it breaks you get to keep all the pieces.
