After copying the module into the /lib/module/uname -r/drivers/pci/
you should perform
This will rebuild the module dependency and re-link the module to the kernel.
Also verify using lspci command if you motherboard has the support for AHCI
For applying the patch first you always run
#patch --dry-run -p1 < patchfile
This command dose not apply the patch but verify the patch file are updated correctly.
If no rejection of patch then we can apply the patch.
#patch -p1 < patchfile

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
