ae01b2493c (libata: Implement ATA_FLAG_NO_DIPM and apply it to mcp65)
added ATA_FLAG_NO_DIPM and made ata_eh_set_lpm() check the flag.
However, @ap is NULL if @link points to a PMP link and thus the
unconditional @ap->flags dereference leads to the following oops.

Fix it by testing @link->ap->flags instead.

stable: ATA_FLAG_NO_DIPM was added during 2.6.39 cycle but was
        backported to 2.6.37 and 38.  This is a fix for that and thus
        also applicable to 2.6.37 and 38.

Nathan, thanks a lot for the report.  Connor, thanks for the analysis
but it was a bit off.  :-)
