If you can set PATA emulation, just about any SATA chipset is supported. Otherwise, as far as I know, Solaris is still limited to Silicon Image 3132/3124 and Marvell 88SX.
I was not able to get a CompUSA/Silicon Image controller working despite tech support from Sun. My impression was that while a few controllers might work, this needs more testing and support from Sun.
