i'm glad we've figured out what is the trigger here it seems.
howver, i am not a fan of the current solution, and think it
should be restricted to known bad combos.

most people with 860 EVOs are successful with NCQ, i'm one
of them with a 500GB model, with netbsd-9 for months now,
and they're a wildly successful line i'm sure many others
also have working happily with NCQ.

we don't know what the real issue is.  perhaps it is a 
problem that the controller had that these drives trigger,
rather than a problem with them, so perhaps we should
disable it on the controller instead of the drive, if
we're going to pick one of the two triggers here.
