I can also confirm that banana pi WORKS with sata port multiplier (in my case , Jmicron JMB321 (1 to 5 sata, no raid) based).
You have to configure your kernel with PMP AND patch linux-sunxi/drivers/ata/sw_ahci_platform.c
as explained before.
Anyway, perf is not that great, I can't do better than 100 MB/s aggregate bandwidth, no matter if I use 1 disk or 3 disks in the same time. Don't know where the limitation is; jmicron chipset, A20 cpu, sw_ahci driver, linux pmp support still young, or board limitation...
Still, having more than 1 SATA drive is great for me.
