See, that's just the problem. I'm running couple OCZ SSD with an
Indilinx controller and also know that Mark Lord and a bunch of others
are also running them on Linux without issues. And supposedly all the
Indilinx firmware for the different resellers are based on the same
base firmware.

I did have an issue with one of them on a particular motherboard
locking up, but it turned out that the whole SATA controller was flaky
and went away after I replaced the motherboard.

So my concern is that you're proposing to black list NCQ for all users
of those particular models of SSD when it's more likely at this point
that it's a problem with your specific setup.
