    if you're going to add that libata-related parm to the kernel parms
    file, wouldn't it make sense for consistency to add the other
    available boot-time parms from libata-core.c as well? it seems
    counter-productive to document only a subset of them from the same
    source file.


    p.s. as i think i've mentioned before, i'd prefer to see that entire
    kernel-parameters.txt file reorganized, where the basic boot time
    parms are at the top, followed by module specific parameters *after*
    that, in alphabetical order by module name. i think that would make
    far more sense.
