[PATCH] ahci: added a new driver for supporting Freescale AHCI sata

From: Tang Yuantian <Yuantian.Tang <at> freescale.com>

Currently Freescale QorIQ series SATA is supported by ahci_platform
driver. Some SoC specific settings have been put in uboot. So whether
SATA works or not heavily depends on uboot.
This patch will add a new driver to support QorIQ sata which removes
the dependency on any other boot loader.
Freescale QorIQ series sata, like ls1021a ls2085a ls1043a, is
compatible with serial ATA 3.0 and AHCI 1.3 specification.

libata-core: Trim blacklist entry for refurbished M500 SSDs

Hi Tejun,

I recently got my hands on an "Factory reCertified" (FC) Crucial M500 drive and
noticed it was giving me errors when fstrim ran, much like they did back a few
years ago.

It seems Crucial modified the model numbers and hence, no longer get
blacklisted, so I fixed it right away.

I think, it should be the same for the M550s... I'll have to check when I get
my hands on one.

ahci_imx: can read corrupted data successfully

I've no idea how this is happening, but it appears that it's possible
to read corrupted data over an eSATA link.

The setup is a Solid-run Cubox-i4pro connected to an external eSATA 2.5"
enclosure with a Corsair Neutron 128GB SSD.

While the issue seems to be the generally poor quality of eSATA cables
(I have two eSATA enclosures, the other enclosure's eSATA cable
interferes with a Logitech wireless receiver - I've had to wrap the
cable in aluminium foil.)  However, it shouldn't be possible to
successfully read faulty data in that condition - and this is what I
find most worrying.

What I've noticed is that at boot, the the SSD is sometimes properly
detected, other times it isn't:

[reboot at 10am]

ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
ata1.00: ATA-8: Corsair Neutron SSD, M311, max UDMA/133

Likely race condition for some disk interface / peripherals combinations (hung processes, high iowait)

Hi,

please CC me in answers.

I have recently run into an issue with a system with

- ASRock N68S motherboard with AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 920 Processor and
NVIDIA MCP61 SATA/IDE Chipset

- IDE interface where master is HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 CDROM/DVD writer and 
slave is an IOMEGA ZIP 100 ATAPI Floppy

Symptoms can occur many hours after boot and include

* IOWAIT suddenly jumping high
* Processes hanging (e.g. all activities related to disks and specifically to 
the IOMEGA drive. For instance commands like lsblk or blkid hang as well as 
attempts at mounting the disk)
* Machine unable to shutdown

Note that before the symptoms occur, all seems to work just fine including use 
of the IOMEGA drive. Removing the IOMEGA drive from the system cures the issue.
The system used to work just fine until a recent past.

Due to the race-like nature of the issue and symptoms coming so late, bisecting 
has been extremely painful. It lead to commit 045065d.  However, this is just a 
trivial fix for a logic condition. What happens is that the bug fixed by 045065d 
was papering over a real issue in the kernel.

Some research revealed that the issue is biting other people as well. For
