SubjectRe: Kernel 5.15 doesn't detect SATA drive on boot

The error in the dmesg output (see [2] where the log file is attached)
looks similar to the problem reported a week or so ago, as per:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/ee3884db-da17-39e3-4010-bcc8f878e2f6@xenosoft.de/

The problematic commits where reverted by Bjorn and the Pull Request that
did it was accepted, as per:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20211111195040.GA1345641@bhelgaas/

Thus, this would made its way into 5.16-rc1, I suppose. We might have to
back-port this to the stable and long-term kernels.

Yuji, could you, if you have some time to spare, try the 5.16-rc1 to see if
this have gotten better on your system?

Krzysztof
