    AMD CIMx SB800: Enable AHCI mode for SATA controller by default
    The current default is IDE mode which is slower compared to AHCI
    mode. Therefore use AHCI mode by default.
    A similar change was made for AMD Persimmon in commit
    »Enable SATA AHCI for faster boot with SeaBIOS.« (96be74c7) [1]
    but was indirectly reverted by »sb800: Add sata ahci/raid mode
    kconfig option« (d4a0e7d0) [2].
