Eugen,
That FAQ entry is about 2 years out of date. smartmontools
support for SATA disks behind a SCSI to ATA Translation (SAT)
layer is now much better. Please try the recently released
version 5.37 of smartmontools.

I have updated that entry in the FAQ with more up-to-date
information and the new entry should become visible soon.
