ARM SOC with at least 2 SATA ports

Anybody know of an ARM SOC based SBC with at least 2 SATA ports (apart from the Seagate Go Flex Net) ?

Doubt there is one yet; wikipedia seems up to date on this at least:

The only one with two SATA ports seems to be the VIA with an x86-64 processor.

[EDIT]: I take that back; there seems to be activity in the NAS market; eg.

For that matter, an older Kirkwood ARM SoC, like the ix2-200, has two SATA ports; you could cannabalize one of those.

I already have a Seagate GoFlexNet (running Slackware ARM) that has the 2 sata ports all wired up right ... the problem is that it only has 128Mb of Ram.
I'm looking for a replacement with more ram and possibly faster CPU.

Wiring up 1 or 2 sata ports on a system that has a SOC that supports them but is lacking the necessary wiring is out of I'm able to do.
