The equivalent patch in SeaBIOS would look like:

--- a/src/ata.c
+++ b/src/ata.c
@@ -841,7 +845,8 @@ ata_init()
     int count=0;
     int bdf, max;
     foreachpci(bdf, max) {
-        if (pci_config_readw(bdf, PCI_CLASS_DEVICE) != PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_IDE)
+        u16 class = pci_config_readw(bdf, PCI_CLASS_DEVICE);
+        if (class != PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_IDE && class != PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_RAID)
         if (count >= ARRAY_SIZE(ATA.channels))
