That's how I saw some of such NAS stock firmwares (and some Debian/Arch 
for ARM targeting those devices) do.
Someone patched the sata driver (and the kernel) to create a "sata 
activity on port X" trigger that will show disk activity on "sata port 
X" (devices that have at least 2 sata ports, usually have a sata led per 

The Sata led trigger from upstream will trigger on ANY activity on Sata, 
so it's not useful to drive more than one Sata led.

Hm, better than nothing.

I think the above led behaviours should be user-configurable though.
