It seems it lacks the code to actually blast the cmd byte passed
as a parameter...

Also, how are we supposed to use it exactly ? We shall fill the taskfile
first I beleive, so I suppose we shall call ide_spin_wait_hwgroup()
first which gets us a channel locked and not busy, right ?

That would do something like:

if (ide_spin_wait_hwgroup(drive))
return -EBUSY;
hwgroup->busy = 1;
.. put stuffs in taskfile regs ..
ide_execute_command(drive, ...)

Ànd then hopefully wait (wait_for_completion() ?) for some action by
the expiry or the handler, right ?

I'm just trying to make sure I understand the purpose of this new function...
