Would be fun though. :)

I thought about using another acronym for port multiplier too. But the
spec uses that acronym all over the place, PM, PMP (Port Multiplier
Portnumber), which reminds me of USB full/high speed fiasco.

Urghh... I thought we could use power for power management inside libata
but that might be a bad idea. So, PMS?
