ahciAdvanced Host Controller Interface for Serial ATA

ahci* at fdt?
ahci* at pci?
ahci* at jmb?

The ahci driver provides support for Serial ATA controllers conforming to the Advanced Host Controller Interface specification.

Several AHCI capable controllers also provide a compatibility mode that causes them to appear as a traditional ATA controller supported by pciide(4).

Although ahci controllers are actual ATA controllers, the driver emulates SCSI via a translation layer.

Setting the lowest bit (0x1) of the driver flags forces ahci to negotiate SATA 1 (1.5 Gb/s) transfer speeds only. It may be useful where higher speeds are unstable.
