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...
