 Currently i am trying to work with my kernel :

 I am trying to make my chipset(ICH7 - M) to support AHCI in my debian 6

 With mentioned link's ref

 i cooked the quirk.c in my work machine and compiled the KERNEL

  make SUBDIRS=drivers/pci/ and  make module SUBDIRS=drivers/pci/

 After successful compilation

 i copied the "pci-stub.ko" from linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/pci to test

 machine's :"/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/pci" path
 and then set quirks.ich_force_ahci=1 in /etc/grub/grub.conf

 and rebooted the system

 But after reboot my IDE is using ata_PIIX driver not AHCI driver.

 Don't know what is error.request some guidance on applying the patch
