Tejun Heo - May 13, 2010, 3:56 p.m.
Implement ata_scsi_set_capacity() which will be called through SCSI
layer when block layer notices that partitions on a device extend
beyond the end of the device.  ata_scsi_set_capacity() requests EH to
unlock HPA, waits for completion and returns the current device
capacity.

This allows libata to unlock HPA on demand instead of having to decide
whether to unlock upfront.  Unlocking on demand is safer than
unlocking by upfront because some BIOSes write private data to the
area beyond HPA limit.  This was suggested by Ben Hutchings.
