the sata_sil in 2.6.2-rc2 has sil 3114 support but is marked correctly
in my opinion as broken.

the ide siimage patch which is working well for me with one disk on
2.6.2-rc2 is here against 2.6.0-test11:

i integrated the siimage patch into the kernel 2166 rpms available here:
http://www.stl.gtri.gatech.edu/fedora/x86_64/sil3114/

i didnt have time to test them yet, tho.  if you can test them let me
know.  if i get more info and have time i'll see about respinning the
distro as justin earlier suggested.
