[OpenIndiana-discuss] OI 151 with C206 motherboard: missing drivers?

I've run a home server/workstation from the OS days all the way
through to OI 151. Sadly the motherboard expired last week (venerable
Asus M2N-SLI) which did for it. I decided a hardware refresh was in
order, and rather over-enthusiastically procured an Asus P8B-WS (Intel
C206 chipset), plus a low-power Core i3 to match. Unfortunately I
wasn't able to confirm hardware compatibility, although anecdotal
evidence suggested I would be OK.
Needless to say, the Device Driver Utility reports 3 missing drivers (all UNK):
- Intel 82801 SATA RAID Controller
- Intel Cougar Point HECI Controller #1
- Unknown class of pci/pnpbios device
Fortunately I have an Intel SASUC8I card in the machine, so I can
continue talking to hard disks, but it's a bit sad to have a SATA3 SSD
that I can't plug into a SATA3 port. From the reading I've done, I'm
given mixed impressions: either the Intel AMT driver should work, but
it's already installed and apparently doesn't, or there's simply no
driver, nor is there likely to be.
Can anyone shed any light? I realise it's my own fault for grabbing a
new board without checking compatibility, but if there's any sort of
solution I'd be really grateful.
