Subject[PATCH RFC] libata: FUA updates
This updates libata FUA support to be more more in line with reality.
FUA support remains off by default.

Add a setting for the fua command-line parameter on libata which enables
FUA only on NCQ-supporting disks.

Update the ata_dev_supports_fua function to remove the blacklisting of
Maxtor BANC1G10 firmware, as there is no conclusive evidence it was ever
needed.

Centralize all of the FUA on/off decisions in this function.

Bypass the checks for FUA command support bit for NCQ disks, since that
bit only applies to non-NCQ FUA, and FUA is part of the spec for NCQ
commands.

When queue depth is set by the user resulting in enabling/disabling
NCQ, trigger a revalidate so that the FUA state will be rechecked,
since disabling/enabling NCQ may also affect FUA support on some disks.

Add a controller flag to indicate it doesn't support FUA commands, and
set this flag for Silicon Image 311x (since that one is known to have
problems) as well as for ITE821x when in smart mode.

Any comments on this version? It's essentially what I posted previously
in "libata FUA revisited", except that the default for FUA support remains
off, so this shouldn't break anything for anyone that doesn't explicitly
enable it.
