I think you're right Moe.

This happened for me too when upgrading and it was indeed due to the 
driver reorganization after 2.6.20.
What might happen is that the drive is recognized as an IDE disk due to 
a compatibility mode in the hardware. If the correct driver is used it 
gets correctly recognized as an SATA drive and assigned as /dev/sd[n]
