Subject[PATCH] libata: add ATAPI module option

Though DMA alignment, CDB interrupt, DMADIR, and PIO support issues
keep libata's ATAPI support turned off by default, as of 2.6.13-git1
PATA users with non-ancient CDROM and DVD drives can start testing
the ATAPI code.

I just checked the following patch into the 'upstream' branch of
libata-dev.git, to be sent to Linus in a few days.

To emphasize, however: DO NOT use libata ATAPI in a production setting.

[libata] allow ATAPI to be enabled with new atapi_enabled module option

ATAPI is getting close to being ready. To increase exposure, we enable
the code in the upstream kernel, but default it to off (present
behavior). Users must pass atapi_enabled=1 as a module option (if
module) or on the kernel command line (if built in) to turn on
discovery of their ATAPI devices.
