Are you getting a hang or a kernel oops?

See if the driver has any debug tracing you can enable. If not, just sprinkle 
some printk's around. Pay particular attention to any 'virt_to_phy' or similar 
functions - they should probably be virt_to_bus.

I suspect the problem is localised to the driver, as the sata_promise driver 
works for us just fine.
