[ARMedslack] getting SATA working on seagate goflex net

I came across that yesterday while trying to check if I had the right arcnumber ... it would be really handy to have a list of the devices and their correct archnumber  somewhere ;-) 

I tried setting 3089 as archnumber but the slackware kernel no longer boots if I do that.
This can probably be fixed if I rebuild the kernel (not sure if patching is needed too) ... but since my work on ClashNG there are 2 new members in my family so if I can avoid time consuming stuff that would be really good.
Can I borrow a kernel from somewhere else that is known to work well if I use it on a slackware arm 14 userland (and has support for all features of the goflex net )?

Maybe this will help

I decided it was time to pull out the goflexnet and hook up two 2.5" sata drives on it.
