It seems we will need a new smartmontools (I don't know if that's included in 
4.3) even if 2.6.9-34 now supports it:

[root at dx ~]# uname -r
[root at dx ~]# smartctl -a /dev/sda
smartctl version 5.33 [x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-4 Bruce 
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

Device: ATA      HDS728080PLA380  Version: PF2O

SATA disks accessed via libata are not currently supported by
smartmontools. When libata is given an ATA pass-thru ioctl() then an
additional '-d libata' device type will be added to smartmontools.
