Please be respectful on the mailing list.

Is CONFIG_SATA_PMP set to y in your .config?

Looking at your logs, we can see that port0-port3 all don't have a link:
[    0.919020] ata7: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 330)
[    2.787201] ata8: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 330)
[    3.100522] ata9: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 330)
[    3.413890] ata10: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 330)

I looked at your v6.7.xx log as well, and it is the same there.

So Hans's theory that port0-port3 is each connected to a
JMB575 Port Multipliers does seem less plausible.

Because if that was the case, I would expect to see link up on these ports
and that it detects a PMP class code when probing these ports.

So I have honestly no idea how this works...

Perhaps the ASMedia firmware takes the command to port0-port3,
and instead of sending it to the PMP, it sends back some faked
reply instead?

This piece of hardware really seems to do not care at all about
following specifications...

Fun fact:
Claims that it supports AHCI 1.4.
That is impressive, especially considering that the latest version
of AHCI is 1.3.1:

I will send an email to some ASMedia developers on the list and see
if we can get any clarification.

Kind regards,
