I just added a SIL3112a generic SATA controller and 2 Optiarc
DVD RW AD-7170S/1.00 drives. Machine has an existing IDE controller
with LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S/PS0B.
During boot system hangs after displaying cd0 messages (IDE). Problem
goes away after rebooting to original kernel.
How-To-Repeat: Boot with atapicam enabled
I read the wrong part number off of the box, this is the dmesg string
for the card:
atapci3: <SiI 3512 SATA150 controller> port
mem 0xfaaffc00-0xfaaffdff irq 16 at device 8.0 on pci4
Also, it appears to hang when dd-ing from a cd to /dev/null. There is
another open ticket for a hang related to a similar chipset when used
with a harddisk.
So the original kernel is the GENERIC kernel delivered by 6.2? And the new
kernel that fails is a GENERIC KERNEL with ATAPICAM added?

Yes, but I got the silimage model number wrong.
If I stress the controller (dd if=/dev/acd1 of=/dev/null bs=512k) the
machine will hang before completion with the GENERIC kernel.
When I searched for 3512 I found an existing open bug for hangs, so I
assume it's a bad card.
I just ordered 2 more SATA controllers, a VIA chipset and a
jr-something. I am just trying to use some SATA DVD-Rs.
If you like, I can send you the silimage card, so you can test.

atapicam is no more after FreeBSD 9.x. Long live atacam and friends.
