I suppose one could write a simple SMI handler that just set the OHCI cmdstatus bits. That probably wouldn't be too hard and it wouldn't be too complex.
What is the current state of affairs? Sooner or later we'll need a solution for the pci-bar-access-from-real-mode issue ...

Also AHCI support needs access to the PCI bar to submit commands and check status.
