As Alan mentioned, the ahci driver drives this just fine.
To confirm, here's the entry for it from drivers/ata/ahci.c ..

        /* Promise */
        { PCI_VDEVICE(PROMISE, 0x3f20), board_ahci },   /* PDC42819 */

(I looked at 2.6.27 because it's what I had handy, so you may need to install
  the latest updates)

That lspci says 'unknown device' is irrelevant to the kernel.
There's no connection between the database lspci uses and the device IDs
in the driver modules.
