Put it wherever you want it, I'm just making it easier for myself not
having to pass patches to hdparm around as well for people to enable
taggged queueing.

Quite possibly, I couldn't resist since the commands are defined the
way there are.

Oh yeah, woops. Value is ok.

Of course, that's my whole point with this ata_request stuff. It's just
messy now because I only cared for tcq usage, not cleaning the rest of
the cruft.

Good, ata_taskfile/ide_wait_taskfile is a horrible interface right now.
But you now that :-)

Just build a big bio, for instance. And hey, look then taskfile and
request paths are identical all of a sudden.

See above, they can be unified instead.

Ok with me, no strong style oppinions here.

How is cris working now, then?

Looking forward to the merge work ahead :-)
