The output of `lspci` and `lspci -n`
Or even better the output of  `(lspci ; lspci -n ) | sort`

That way we can find out which hardware, including the disc-controller,
is in your brand new IBM laptop.
The SATA support you compiled into your monolithic kernel
is allready available as kernel module. What is  missing is information
to actually load the SATA module, the lspci output.

Sharing that information with the free software community will
avoid the hassle of recompiling kernels.
