    SubjectRe: [PATCH] sata_nv,ahci: add the ahci legacy mode support to sata_nv
    Yes, link - add the AHCI legacy
    support to sata_nv when IDE/RAID mode been set in SBIOS and Device IDs
    are not in ahci.c at this moment. To do so, when a new chipset come
    out and DIDs haven't been submited to LKML,user still can use ahci
    driver to handle it when setting AHCI mode in BIOS, using sata_nv when
    setting RAID/IDE in BIOS.
    For example, ahci driver in Fedora 7 doesn't include the DIDs of
    MCP78, so if you set the IDE/RAID mode in BIOS, os installation onto
    SATA drive will fail. But if Fedora 7 include this patch, installation
    will be successful.
