Hardware support

As of kernel 2.6.25, sata_sil24 supports Silicon Image chipsets 3124, 3131, 3132, and 3531, including OEM rebadges from Adaptec.

Summary: Full TCQ/NCQ support, with full SATA control including hotplug and PM.

Use the Sil3124 if available as it is a nice, open design.

Known problems

If a card using this driver does not seem to present individual drives to the system's BIOS for bootup purposes, re-flashing the card to the "base" (non-"raid") bios may resolve the issue. Despite documentation that says to choose "JBOD" in the raid firmware for this purpose, that option does not seem to exist in recent revisions. Card firmware is available from Silicon Image
