you could look in /sys/bus/scsi ... for my on-board SATA controller with nvidia chipset, I get the following:
> cat /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/scsi_host/host0/proc_name

some tools

dmidecode lists all your hardware
lsmod lists the modules loaded in the kernel, and what uses them

you may need other tools, but those ones are usefull anyway
