Subject[PATCH] libata: transport: cleanup documentation of sysfs interface
Clean-up the documentation of sysfs interfaces to be in the same format
as described in Documentation/ABI/README. This will be useful for
tracking changes in the ABI. Attributes are grouped by function (device,
link or port) and then by date added.

This patch also adds documentation for one attribute -
/sys/class/ata_port/ataX/port_no

- Behind each port, there is a ata_link. If there is a SATA PM in the
- topology, 15 ata_link objects are created.

- If a link is behind a port, the directory name is linkX, where X is
- ata_port_id of the port.
- If a link is behind a PM, its name is linkX.Y where X is ata_port_id
- of the parent port and Y the PM port.

- Behind each link, up to two ata device are created.
- The name of the directory is devX[.Y].Z where:
- - X is ata_port_id of the port where the device is connected,
- - Y the port of the PM if any, and
- - Z the device id: for PATA, there is usually 2 devices [0,1],
- only 1 for SATA.
-
-class
- Device class. Can be "ata" for disk, "atapi" for packet device,
- "pmp" for PM, or "none" if no device was found behind the link.
