I was talking about the capability of the machine, i.e. its
firmware, here and not a workaround the OS might be able to
do, which f.e. still doesn't allow to boot from such a
controller though. If you are willing to go to such lengths
to get random SATA controllers working the way cleaner
approach would be to teach ata(4) or yet better its
successor how to do all of the necessary initialization
itself however.
