Subject[PATCH] sata_mv: stabilize for 5081 and other fixes
Hello,

With the patch below I've managed to stabilize the sata_mv driver
running a Marvell 5081 SATA controller. Prior to these changes it
would cause sporadic memory corruptions right after insmod. I prefer
this driver over Marvell's own driver which have all sorts of weird
bugs.

The patch also increases the maximum possible number of SG entries
per IO to 256 (this large sg_tablesize is a requirement for the
application we are developing at my company, XIV). Notice that it
also zeros-out a reserved field in the SG, I'm not sure how it
affected stability but something did. I've also added the 'volatile'
qualifier to some fields that belong to structs involved with I/O.

This patch is for 2.6.16-rc5.
