Re: Debugging ahcisata?

The first thing to check is if the drive returned an error, of
if the controller failed. You can #define AHCI_DEBUG and set
ahcidebug_mask to 0xff, and see what happens when the drive is probed.

Anyway, since it looks like mvsata is out of the running, I'll go back to ahcisata and turn on some debugging.

Hmmm, this time around, ahcisata driver doesn't even appear to find any devices. Full dmesg is attached.

(At least the previous attempt found a device, even though it claimed that it was an antique ST506!)
