All libata drivers support SMART -- which is what one would expect,
given that libata leverages the kernel's SCSI layers.
(The particular SATA interface, internal vs. eSATA, is not an issue.)

For SATA drivers that aren't part of Jeff Garzik's libata collection,
you would have to check the particulars of those drivers.  But I expect
most people would use libata drivers.
