How to define a group gets... Messy. Just as a data point, my own
Barefoot-based SSD, an OCZ Vertex, has no NCQ-related problems
whatsoever, so far as I know. Its currently hooked to a Zotac ION
board, which has ahci-driven sata controllers of some sort, was
previously in a Dell Studio Hybrid, where it also worked just fine.
