I have s2892 and Sun Ultra40, which have ck804 too. Linux can only detect 
one hard drive per SATA controller. The second drive is either undetected or 
times out. On s2892, some HD types, presumably all SATA-II, (Hitachi 
HDS7280SA for instance), are detected at boot time, but miserably fail 
later, with lots of log messages from the kernel driver. I compared the PCI 
configuration registers (other than BARs, MSI, etc.) left by LinuxBIOS and 
the factory BIOS: they were different.
