Interestingly, when SIDPR is used in ata_piix, writes to DET in
SControl sometimes get ignored leading to detection failure.  Update
sata_link_resume() such that it reads back SControl after clearing DET
and retry if it's not clear.

Greg, although this patch should be included in -stable release in
time, I think it should receive some more testing in devel branch for
at least a couple of -rc cycles as it changes very fundamental part of
hardreset protocol.  Is there a protocol for delayed inclusion into
-stable?  If not, I'll try to remember and ping you back after some
time but I'm almost sure that I'm gonna forget this.  :-)

Thanks.

I'll drop this into my "todo-stable" queue, and ping you back on this in
a few weeks.  Sound good?

thanks,
