Did you ever build "your own" kernel?
You should try it, at least once.

If you like to try it: just follow the hint you see at the
second-last line of sbpcd's initialisation messages.
If you never, never will do such a thing: read about your
possibilities to submit "kernel command line" parameters
and use the "sbpcd=<address>,<type>" chance.

Or simply use the builtin speedup parameter "sbpcd=0".
With this, you get the fastest initialisation one can
think of.

BTW: it is well-documented, with simple words.
