Most SATA controllers/chipsets I've encountered are supported. I've had good luck with VIA and SiS controllers. Promise is definitely good if they have anything in your price range. Just don't buy anything from Silicon Image if you value your data. The ata(4) manpage has a more complete list of supported controllers than the release notes does.
