Bug Description

I have this controller with 4 sata drives connected to it. After hours of searching and trying different things I cannot get any drives to be detected. They are seen in the bios. Currently I have:
cat /etc/modprobe.d/marvell.conf
options ahci marvell_enable=1
tail -n 3 /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
# marvell pata
blacklist pata_marvell

I have ran update-initramfs -u but this does not work.

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v3.7 kernel[0] (Not a kernel in the daily directory) and install both the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.
