try lspci -n -s xx:yy   where xx:yy is the ID #s shown on the plain 
lspci output.   report what the vendor/device ID is, like...

# lspci
05:06.0 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AIC-7899P U160/m (rev 01)
05:06.1 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AIC-7899P U160/m (rev 01)
[root at freescruz ~]# lspci -s 05:06 -n
05:06.0 0100: 9005:00cf (rev 01)
05:06.1 0100: 9005:00cf (rev 01)

and maybe those vendor ID's (9005:00CF) can be used to identify what 
chipset it actually is.
