this sounds promising ...

but this is totally dissapointing. I'm getting about
60 MB/s with these simple tests (Asus A8V-VM).
I was expecting SATA II to bring at least 150 MB/s.
On VT8237 (Asus A7V880, AMD K7) I'm getting in average
over 80 MB/s.
When reading from RAID0 it gets over 150 MB/s. SATA I.
There is something wrong, either with this south bridge or
with the driver...
