It is very much debatable whether i-t's behavior is correct here. Its 
manpage is not explicit about whether or not a value is allowed and not 
allowing a value is at the least rather inconsistent with the way boolean 
kernel parameters are handled. It is especially inconsistent given that 
in this case the i-t parameter has the same name as the kernel parameter 
for the ata-generic module.

However, I have uploaded a modified version of hw-detect.sh that does not 
set the value, but just sets the plain option.

If possible please retest with a daily built image in a few days.
