That looks like a kernel issue in this case. From looking at the code
I remember to see a quirk to not use ahci if pata was enabled.

How people think we might workaround it?

I small background for the new interested people:

The user has problems using his Marvel IDE (in legacy mode). We have
pata_marvell available but ahci is loaded anyway.

It looks that the only way to workaround the issue is to do a hack
like we do to ide-generic (load it and check if new devices are
created). Do someone has any better alternative?

Cheers,
