Hello All:

I'm setting up a small fileserver at home running 5.4-RELEASE. I'm booting from 
a small IDE hard drive and have installed a SiI3112 controller and a pair of 
SATA drives for data storage. Before starting I flashed the controller with 
latest firmware (4.2.77) and performed a low-level format and burn-in test on 
both SATA drives (Maxtor 7L300S0's) using Maxtor's PowerMAX 4.22 diagnostic 
utilities. The burn-in tests ran two full passes (approx. 8 hours) on each 
drive without errors so I am reasonably sure the drives are working correctly.

I then did the following:

   atacontrol create RAID1 ad4 ad6
   bsdlabel -w /dev/ar0
   newfs -O2 -U -b32768 -f4096 -g8388608 -h16 -ospace /dev/ar0a

So far so good, but when I do this:

   mount /dev/ar0a /data

I get this:

   ad4: TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries left) LBA=24016

Some quick questions:

1) Are these SiI3112 controllers any good? I have the option of using a 
HighPoint HPT372 instead but was planning to use that elsewhere.

2) Would upgrading to something newer than 5.4-RELEASE help with this issue?

DMESG below...
