I don't really see a use case for switching the mode. Without the patch, the
only way I've managed to boot from that controller is with a linux kernel -
either in the rom image, or loaded via gpxe or some other means.

I can't imagine the use case where you would *not* want to have the mode set
to make the drive bootable. Unless there is some downside to doing so that
I'm totally missing?
