You'll certainly need to re-quirk on resume, since there's no guarantee
that the firmware will do it for you. My suspicion is that it comes up
in PATA mode with legacy firmware in order to improve compatibility with
XP, and you'd have ahci if you booted through EFI. I don't have
something handy to test that right now, though.

There's no guarantee that the AHCI BAR is programmed by the firmware (it
seems to be on the Macs, but won't be on most hardware). Is it getting
reprogrammed on resume?
