Further testing indicates my on-board Silicon Image 3112 controller works fine, but the new plug-in card with the same chip (different rev) causes data corruption.
Chip details for google, should anyone find it useful: On-board controller (works): Silicon Image SATALink (tm) Sil3112ACT144 Q221668.1A 0242 1.1
Plug-in card controller (fails): Silicon Image SATALink (tm) Sil3112ACT144 Q30350.1 0342 1.21
If I tie two drives (Seagate ST31600023AS) to the on-board controller (plug-in-card removed), I have a stable system.
If I tie the two drives to the plug-in-card (on-board controller disabled via jumper), I get data corruption.
I suspect something is wrong with the newer version of the chip, or given the LKML traffic about this part, perhpas the driver 'fixes' for the old chip version don't work well with the new (possibly fixed?) version.
Anyway, I have a new controller (promise TX4) on the way, so I'll see if that fixes my corruption problems.
