Here you can see that it would be very easy for another driver
to just add code to set the NO_HOTPLUG flag and then this code
will work for them as well, since we power off the phy using
DET which is specified by SATA.

here's that code:
+static void ata_phy_offline(struct ata_link *link)
+{
+ u32 scontrol;
+ int rc;
+
+ /* set DET to 4 */
+ rc = sata_scr_read(link, SCR_CONTROL, &scontrol);
+ if (rc)
+ return;
+ scontrol &= ~0xf;
+ scontrol |= (1 << 2);
+ sata_scr_write(link, SCR_CONTROL, scontrol);
+}
while it's true that I only modified ahci.c to set
the flag, any other driver writer can do that for the
other drivers based on whatever they want to use to
determine whether to set the NO_HOTPLUG flag.
