Devices connected to a JMicron PATA controller are not detected.

My computer has a JMicron controller that has SATA/PATA ports. I have one SATA HD connected to one of the SATA ports and a 500 GH HD and a DVD-RW drive connected to the PATA port. The SATA HD is detected and works well but the devices connected to the PATA controller are not. For example, when trying to boot Haiku from the PATA HD, it starts booting and then fails because it can not find the boot device. When booting it from the SATA HD, I noticed this in the syslog:
KERN: [34mahci:[0m ahci_scan_bus, cookie 0x9100ce40 KERN: [34mahci:[0m no device present on port 0 Last message repeated 1 time KERN: [34mahci:[0m no device present on port 1 Last message repeated 1 time
These messages probably refer to the PATA controller (only 2 ports) but although it does not find devices, there *ARE* devices attached (and they work under Windows and under Linux).
Full syslog attached.
