ACPI/libata: Restore libata.noacpi support
This patch restores libata.noacpi support to libata-acpi.c. There are broken optional control methods for ATA controller devices in the real world. The libata.noacpi has been used for a long time as a workaround to deal with issues caused by the broken ASL codes. 1. The "noacpi" option is introduced by the following commit: commit 11ef697b37e3c85ce1ac21f7711babf1f5b12784 Date: Thu, 28 Sep 2006 11:29:01 -0700 Subject: libata: ACPI and _GTF support 2. The "noacpi" option is renamed to "libata_noacpi" by the following commit: commit d7d0dad62a641c156386288a747c1a2f6bb2e42d Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2007 01:57:37 -0400 Subject: [libata] Disable ACPI by default; fix namespace problems 3. Some of its logics are changed over time - becomes relying on the "acpi_handle" bound to the ATA devices since this commit: commit fafbae87db88a73b166d3bc3294d209207f27056 Date: Tue, 15 May 2007 03:28:16 +0900 Subject: libata-acpi: implement ata_acpi_associate() 4. The option is deleted by the following commit: commit 30dcf76acc695cbd2fa919e294670fe9552e16e7 Date: Mon, 25 Jun 2012 16:13:04 +0800 Subject: libata: migrate ACPI code over to new bindings But the libata.noacpi setup is still left in the kernel without codes to implement it. So the deletion introduces a regression to the Linux. This patch disables ATA_ACPI support at runtime by stopping acpi binding on the ATA devices to fix this regression. This patch is tested by booting a SATA x86-64 kernel or a PATA x86 kernel with or without "libata.noacpi=1" kernel command line argument.
