    Subject[PATCH] sata_nv: complain on spurious completion notifiers
    Recently Tejun wrote a patch to ahci.c to make it raise a HSM violation
    if the drive attempted to complete a tag that wasn't outstanding. We could
    run into the same problem with sata_nv ADMA. This adds code to raise a HSM
    violation error if the controller gives us a notifier tag that isn't
    outstanding, since the drive may be issuing spurious completions.
