Hi!

Would it be possible to add support for the Intel ICH6M SATA controller?
The vendor and the device ID for the controller are the following: 0x8086, 0x2653.

Thanks,
c0x

The ICH6, 7 & 8 controllers are supported in PATA emulation mode, but in "native" mode these controllers are AHCI devices. Syllable does not yet have an AHCI driver: I have hardware, I made a start on one, but it has fallen by the wayside and I have not had any time to work on it. It would be a nice project for someone to work though. I can even provide the source I did manage to write, plus a few pointers on porting from the Linux libata code.

Sure thing. Drop me an email ([email protected]) and I'll send it on over.
