Marvell SATA controller 88SE9128 - driver issue?
We are unable to configure any drive connected to the Marvell 88SE9128 controller. (controller is apparently implemented as a PCI device)
mobo: GigaByte GA-P67A-UD7-B3
Note: all drives controlled directly by the P67A work fine.¶
Drive does appear in cfgadm connected/unconfigured
c configure sata1/0Failed to config device at ap_id: /devices/pci@0,0/pci8086,1c1c@1c,6/pci1458,b000@0:0
After making these changes to /etc/system:
set ahci:ahci_msi_enabled = 0
set sata:sata_max_queue_depth = 0x1
- cfgadm -a (does not even see the 'type' as sata-port):
sata1/0 unknown connected unconfigured unknown

I just want to chime in that I have the same issue as multiple people explain on http://wiki.openindiana.org/oi/Motherboards
"Marvell 88SE9128 SATA-3 controller: UNSUPPORTED (should be disabled, otherwise expect kernel panic at boot)"
It would be nice if it was possible to run and use a system without having to explicitly have to disable the controller in the BIOS to avoid a kernel panic. I'm not expecting the driver be supported any time soon, but not making the device crash the machine would be nice.
Would it be possible to put it on some kind of black-list so that it is not initialized at all, and therefore avoid the crash?
