MCP5x is simply not AHCI compatible. Only the upcoming MCP6x chipsets have AHCI

This is correct, but these patches don't apply to 2.6.18 because they depend on a bunch of other stuff.

Luckily for us, Tejun Ho has backported almost all of his patches to 2.6.18 and you can download his patch set here:

This set includes the hotplug polling functionality.

Hope that helps.
