To add yet another data point, take a look at this thread in the kernel devel list where they're discussing how to work around the sil3114's quirks.So for what it's worth, the Sil3114 is *not* trash. Sure, it's not the greatest sata controller in the world (the 3124 is considerably better, for instance), but it does it's job.
http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0406.2/1821.htmlI'd like to draw special attention to the part where he says " Silicon Image 311x is fully SATA compliant -- but it's the only controller that sends odd-sized packets to the SATA device. That causes no end of problems...".
As I dig up more and more about the 3114, I'm finding that not very much of it is flattering.
