I have a Sonnet Tempo SATA X4P card here that fails to get any good connection to whatever harddrive I connect to it. The card has four eSATA connectors and sits on a PCI-X slot of a Tyan Thunder n6650W (S2915-E) motherboard. Here's the relevant data:

The cards as being seen by lspci -nnv:
06:04.0 IDE interface [0101]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SX6042 PCI-X 4-Port SATA-II [11ab:6042] (rev 02) (prog-if 8f [Master SecP SecO PriP PriO])
        Subsystem: Sonnet Technologies, Inc. Device [16b8:4350]
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 20
        Memory at b0600000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
        I/O ports at 4000 [size=256]
        [virtual] Memory at b0500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512K]
        [virtual] Expansion ROM at a0100000 [disabled] [size=512K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Capabilities: [60] PCI-X non-bridge device
        Kernel driver in use: sata_mv

The kernel drivers:
# zgrep "\(_\|S\)ATA" /proc/config.gz | grep -v ^#

The kernel version I used when I wrote this post:
> uname -a
Linux shanghai 3.12.17 #5 SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 12 00:28:20 CEST 2014 x86_64 Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2389 AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

And here comes an example of what happens as soon as I switch on one of my external harddrives I want to use over that card. As the output appears to be too big to fit into a forum post I uploaded the file to my little webspace: Sonnet_Tempo_SATA_X4P_device_errors.txt

Any help in getting this card working reliable is highy appreciated!
The manual said "Requires Windows10 or better" so I installed GNU/Linux...
