Yes it is a card with that ITE8212 chip on it.

I had to reflash the BIOS on the card, to make it work in 
standard IDE mode. There's one BIOS download for RAID 
functionality, and another for 100% ATAPI functions. So it's 
either a RAID card, or a plain IDE card. You cannot switch 
between RAID functionality and standard IDE functionality 
without flashing the BIOS on the PCI card.

I'm monitoring the drives performance, and waiting to see if 
there are any more dma errors reported by logwatch. Nothing 
so far in /var/log/messages :)
