This is due to a race condition with udev, I believe.  What udev you
running?

Here, I'm still running PATA drives, so can't confirm SATA behavior.  I'm
running ~amd64, however, so am up to baselayout-1.11.13 and udev-063. 
udev's changelog mentions something about fixing this sort of bug, IIRC,
which is why I know it's a udev race condition of some sort, that should
(I believe) be fixed with the latest udev.
