How do I test NATA ?
They will be, after I've finished porting ataraid.

To test the code that's already been tested, you have to apply the diff 
I mentioned in [1], remove all old ata devices from your kernel config, 
add options PCI_MAP_FIXUP to it, and then either add (at least) device 
nata, natadisk and natapicd (for disks and cdroms respectively), or add 
'nata' to SUBDIR in src/sys/dev/disk/Makefile, and edit your 
/boot/loader.conf to read nata_load="YES", natapci="YES", 
natadisk="YES", natapicd="YES". make buildkernel, make installkernel, 
reboot. If it doesn't work, boot kernel.old, and report issues :).
