Subject[git] libata-dev queue updated

I finally got around to creating something that has been missing since
BitKeeper disappeared, and something that Andrew has been wanting
from me for a while: an amalgamation of all the libata-dev branches
that I maintain internally.

First, a bit of background. Most patches I receive are dumped
into the 'upstream' branch of libata-dev.git. However, some patches
require more development or review before they are ready for upstream.
In such cases, patches are divided into branches by category: ncq (NCQ
queueing support), chs-support (C/H/S support), adma (new ADMA driver),
sil24 (new Silicon Image 312x driver), passthru (ATA passthrough/SMART
support), etc.

All these branches are terribly useful to me. Dividing the changes
up in this manner means that some less-cooked changes can stay in the
git repository, while I can forward important changes to Andrew/Linus
immediately. The downside is that this system leaves people with a
confusing set of branches.

The solution is something that I maintained during the BitKeeper
days, the "ALL" branch. As the name implies, this branch contains
all the branches in libata-dev.git. The creation of this branch also
facilitates the creation of a single downloadable patch (see below)
that users can easily patch into their kernel, without having to
learn git.

To Andrew Morton specifically: Please replace all git-libata-* patches
with the content of the 'ALL' branch. You can simply pull the 'ALL'
branch, and ignore all others.

The following is the current contents of the libata-dev queue's ALL
branch, which is a superset of all other branches in the repository:
