Subject[patch 10/50] libata: handle 0xff status properly
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com>

libata waits for !BSY even when the status register reports 0xff.
This causes long boot delays when D8 isn't pulled down properly. This
patch does the followings.

* don't wait if status register is 0xff in all wait functions

* make ata_busy_sleep() return 0 on success and -errno on failure.
-ENODEV is returned on 0xff status and -EBUSY on other failures.

* make ata_bus_softreset() succeed on 0xff status. 0xff status is not
reset failure. It indicates no device. This removes unnecessary
retries on such ports. Note that the code change assumes unoccupied
port reporting 0xff status does not produce valid device signature.

It fixes a long delay during booting for some hardware.
