I'm working on a new PowerPC board (8349 based) with a Silicon Image 3114 SATA controller

I get "qc timeout" errors. I don't know a lot about SATA. Can anyone give me a clue as
to what could be wrong?

Several questions.

1. does any previous kernel version work? say, 2.6.17?
2. can your ppc board do byte-aligned mmio access?
3. it could be irq routing problem. can you verify that?
