I have a Tyan Thunder and used to use 2.6.0 with the sii-ide patch.  
Doing a grep -r on any decent-sized filesystem was guaranteed to 
cause a dma timeout (lost interrupt) with sii-ide.

In mid January, Jeff Garzik posted a patch (on the linux kernel list)
to 2.6.1(-mm2?) that added 3114 support to libsata.  I haven't had any 
trouble since I started using libsata with his patch. I would imagine
the patch was incoroporated into the mainline 2.6 by now.
