       ahci - Advanced Host Controller Interface SATA controller driver


       The  ahci driver is a SATA framework-compliant HBA driver that supports
       SATA HBA controllers that are compatible with the  Advanced  Host  Con‐
       troller	Interface 1.0 specification. AHCI is an Intel-developed proto‐
       col that describes the register-level interface	for  host  controllers
       for  serial  ATA	 1.0a  and  Serial  ATA II. The AHCI 1.0 specification
       describes the interface between the system software and the  host  con‐
       troller hardware.

       The  ahci driver currently supports the Intel ICH6/7/8/9/10, VIA vt8251
       and JMicron AHCI controllers which are compliant with the Advanced Host
       Controller  Interface  1.0  specification. The Intel ICH6/7/8/9 and VIA
       vt8251 controllers support standard SATA features. The ahci driver cur‐
       rently supports hard disk, ATAPI DVD, ATAPI tape, ATAPI disk (i.e. Dell
       RD1000), hotplug, NCQ (Native command  queuing)	and  Port  multipliers
       (Silicon Image 3726/4726). Power management is not yet supported.

       The ahci module contains no user configurable parameters.
