Permanently disabling alarm on Intel RAID controller ...

oh, most cool ... but it doesn't seem to work, or I'm doing it wrong:

pluto# /usr/sbin/storcon
Error: Initialization failed ! (Device driver not loaded ?)

there doesn't seem to be any instructions for using it, beyond doing the
above, and the iir driver is definitely loaded:

pluto# grep iir /var/run/dmesg.boot
iir0: <Intel Integrated RAID Controller> mem 0xfc8f0000-0xfc8f3fff irq 2 at device 9.0 on pci1
pass0 at iir0 bus 1 target 6 lun 0
da0 at iir0 bus 2 target 0 lun 0

so close ... is there maybe a arg I need to type, or ... ?

I'm running 4.9-STABLE updated to Jan 28th, while the driver that comes
with the .zip file appears to be back to '02 (ie. not updated recently?


tried this ... when we reboot the machine ... it goes quiet while in
storcon, but once we boot to the OS, it resumes :(
