Okay tried the ahci_port_pluggable() hack, no difference. The patch above fixes the issue on two systems here with motherboard SATA, and has zero effect on the AHCI ExpressCard in my notebook. The notebook issue is definitely PCIe hotplug b0rkage, not libata. I fixed that once, a few years ago, but it seems to have crept back into the kernel again when I wasn't paying close attention. Dunno when, could have been there for ages now. But the libata regression is new. And fixable here, at least. I think whatever broke it should get reverted ASAP until you are happy with a more permanent solution. Otherwise the solution above is what I'm now patching into all of my systems here.
