Subject[PATCH]AHCI: disable sntf cap for ich8
I obseved there is a sata_async_notification() for every ahci interrupt. But the
async notification does nothing (this is hard disk drive and no pmp). This cause
cpu wastes some time on sntf register access.

It appears ICH AHCI doesn't support SNotification register, but the controller
reports it does. After quirking it, the async notification disappears.

PS. it appears all ICH don't support SNotification register from ICH manual, don't
know if we need quirk all ICH. I don't have machines with all kinds of ICH.
