 The attached patch changes the behavour from something like:
        if (SATA_AHCI || RAID)
                return match if ACHI mode;
        if (SATA_AHCI || RAID)
                if (SATA_ACHI)
                        return match;
                else if (ACHI enable bit)
                        return match;
 I think we're right to not blindly attach to any card that is
 PCI_SUBCLASS_MASS_STORAGE_RAID as rev 1.3 of ahcisata_pci.c did.
 However, I'm not sure what you attach such a device if it doesn't have
 AHCI_GHC_AE set...
