What's the current status of serial ATA support?

Freebsd 4-STABLE seems to have it close to nil, and I don't feel like 
needing freebsd 5.3.

Depending on the controller, it just works. There might be some problems
with hot plugging and the like, but the simple PATA-like usage works e.g.
for the SiI controllers.
DF don't like my Silicon image SIL3114 controller.
Had to turn if off in BIOS to be able to boot.
