Thanks for sharing this but I would like to point out that the device id for the Marvell 88SE9172 chipset has a typo.  


Your kext has the IOPCIPrimaryMatch for this chipset as 91921b4b when is should be 91721b4b.


The corrected info for Marvell 88SE9172 chipset is as follows:


        <key>Marvell 88SE9172</key>
            <key>Chipset Name</key>
            <string>88SE9172 SATA 6Gb/s Controller</string>
            <key>Vendor Name</key>


Having edited your kext to include the above Marvell 88SE9172 device id.  The kext works for my Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK motherboard and El Capitan with no issues (installed kext using EasyKext).

Same applies to Marvell 88SE9480 SAS/SATA 6Gb/s RAID controller except edit does not fix it. The kext does not load.

It should be <string>0x94801b4b</string> not the one above. It looks like author has copied same thing over and over.

I suppose SAS controller is not SATA controller.
