Bug description:
  SRU Justification

  Impact: CONFIG_SATA_HIGHBANK was changed from y to m after trusty,
  with no justification appearing in the git history. This can cause
  problems booting on some systems.

  Fix: Change the option back to y.

  Regression Potential: Minimal, as this only switches a driver from
  being a module to being built-in, and the driver will only be used if
  the device appears in a platform's device tree.


  Sometime between trusty and xenial, CONFIG_SATA_HIGHBANK was changed
  from y to m. I believe the change was in utopic, but it's hard to

  This makes booting on Calxeda Highbank systems pretty difficult since
  you can't get to the root filesystem on a SATA disk unless you were
  smart enough to have initramfs-tools include the sata_highbank module.
  On a clean install, you'd need to know to drop out of the installer,
  and rebuild the initramfs appropriately.

  Any chance that could be changed back to y for armhf?
