VIA VT6421A - Anyone using sucessfully?

Just a quick update on this card - I get similar errors in every 2.6
kernel I've tried - CentOS5, Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.10.  I get similar
problems even in FreeNAS (based on FreeBSD)

I've opened bugs on the CentOS bug tracker and Launchpad, and found
similar reports in the FreeBSD forums.

So I think it's safe to say, if you are thinking  about buying a Via
VT6421A based SATA card, just don't do it :-) Find a different one....
