Subject[patch 56/60] libata: kill spurious NCQ completion detection
2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com>

patch 459ad68893a84fb0881e57919340b97edbbc3dc7 in mainline.

Spurious NCQ completion detection implemented in ahci was incorrect.
On AHCI receving and processing FISes and raising interrupts are not
interlocked and spurious interrupts are expected.

For example, if an interrupt occurs while interrupt handler is running
and the running interrupt handler handles the event the new IRQ
indicated, after IRQ handler finishes, it will be executed again
because IRQ pending bit is set by the new interrupt but there won't be
anything to process.

Please read the following message for more information.

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ide/26012

This patch...

* Removes all spurious IRQ whining from ahci. Spurious NCQ completion
detection was completely wrong. Spurious D2H Register FIS taught us
that some early drives send spurious D2H Register FIS with I bit set
while NCQ commands are in progress but none of recent drives does
that and even the ones which show such behavior can do NCQ fine.

* Kills all NCQ blacklist entries which were added because of spurious
NCQ completions. I tracked down each commit and verified all
removed ones are actually added because of spurious completions.

WD740ADFD-00NLR1 wasn't deleted but moved upward because the drive
not only had spurious NCQ completions but also is slow on sequential
data transfers if NCQ is enabled.

Maxtor 7V300F0 was added by 0e3dbc01d53940fe10e5a5cfec15ede3e929c918
from Alan Cox. I can only find evidences that the drive only had
troubles with spuruious completions by searching the mailing list.
This entry needs to be verified and removed if it doesn't have other
NCQ related problems.
