Okay, third time lucky? This one brings back the indentation and is
smaller than the last patch too.

From: Grant Coady <gcoady.lk@gmail.com>

Cleanup ATA Kconfig, this patch replaces earlier RFC patches.

Cleanup ATA Kconfig, hide the SFF option behind new PATA and SATA menu
items, sort drivers into a single list, add missing "if unsure, say..."
help text, this version gets the items indented in make menuconfig, some
inconsistent text resolved, and one long (>80 col) help line split.
