sata_sil is for SiL controllers, so no it shouldn't work.  The
sata_promise handles many sata controllers from promise, but apparently
not this one yet.  Must be too new.  The TX cards may actually be
hardware raid, unfortunately promise hardly counts as an open source
friendly company (at least not in the past) so I have no idea when (or
if) that card will work.  Given it is a two port card, it is like just a
fakeraid card.  It would probably work with sata_promise if it knew the
pci id.  It might already work if the card had its "raid" stuff turned
