Hello,

Can you please try the attached patch and report the result?  The bug
shouldn't happen now and for cases where it would have happened,
libata will report "link online but device misclassified" and retry.

Thanks.

this patch cannot be applied onto stable-2.6.31/master ... e.g. the
first chunk is already in there ....
