Jeff Garzik said on the 10th May in the linux-ide list:

Serial ATA (SATA) for Linux
status report
May 10, 2004

Silicon Image 3112/3114
Summary: No TCQ. Looks like a PATA controller, but with full SATA
control including hotplug and PM.

libata driver status: Beta.

drivers/ide driver status: Production, but see issue #4.

Issue #4: Need to have the most recent fixes posted to lkml, for stable
operation and full performance (where possible).
