Perhaps your "if intel but AHCI is not enabled then write some value to
a particular config register" change. I'm thinking there's more work to
do to kick the chip into AHCI mode and not confuse the BIOS; besides
that, I think it's not clean. If the device doesn't advertise itself as
being an AHCI subclass, then don't try to force it.
