NetBSD and OpenBSD atactl appear to use the same code, credit the same author(s) and history, though I haven't diff'ed the sources yet.

In either/both cases, they provide finer-grained control
of ATA device features, but do NOT provide for RAID
control as atacontrol does.

In all cases, these are management tools, not drivers per se,
so I think this is precisely where the combined functionality
