I have the same situation here, but not the same hardware:

atapci0: <Intel ICH7 SATA300 controller> port
0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6,0x170-0x177,0x376,0x3020-0x302f mem
0xe8200000-0xe82003ff irq 19 at device 31.2 on pci0

ad0: 76319MB <SAMSUNG HD080HJ ZH100-47> at ata0-master SATA150

This drive is withtout the jumper, which according to the manual means
it should operate as SATA300 (while with jumper plugged, it is limited
to SATA150). But it is only controlled as SATA150.

So, chances are my disc also have some problem?
