Another update of my AHCI force quirking patch, somewhat cleaned up to let the existing kernel code do more of the work. The only functional change in this version is that some of the chipset IDs are disabled. The Intel specs state that plain (non-RAID supporting) desktop chipsets don't support AHCI. If you find that enabling one of the disabled IDs works for you, let me know along with the output of lspci -vxn -s 1f.2 . Patch is here. Success and failure reports welcome.

Note: I've had one report of SCSI errors associated with a previous version of the patch. I'm not quite sure what's going on there, but if you're paranoid about data corruption then you probably shouldn't play with this right now.
