Shane Huang - Nov. 17, 2012, 8:44 p.m.
NCQ capability was used to check availability of SATA Settings page
from Identify Device Data Log, which contains DevSlp timing variables.
It does not work on some HDDs and leads to error messages.
IDENTIFY word 78 bit 5(Hardware Feature Control) should be used.

Quoting SATA spec 3.1:
If Hardware Feature Control is supported, then:
a) IDENTIFY DEVICE data word 78 bit 5 (see 13.2.1.18) shall be
set to one;
b) the SET FEATURES Select Hardware Feature Control subcommand
shall be supported (see 13.3.8);
c) page 08h of the Identify Device Data log (see 13.7.7) shall
be supported;

This patch is not tested on SATA HDD with DevSlp supported.

Please suspend this patch because I just received two new
DevSlp drives but found word 78 bit 5 is _not_ set.

I'm checking with the drive vendor whether he gave me
the wrong information. If bit 5 is not the necessary and
sufficient condition, I will implement another patch to
replace ata_device->sata_settings into ->devslp_timing.

Thanks,
Shane
