From: Tejun Heo <tj <at> kernel.org>
Subject: [PATCH v2.6.38-rc7] Revert "libata: ahci_start_engine compliant to AHCI spec"
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ide
Date: Saturday 14th May 2011 10:28:04 UTC (over 6 years ago)
This reverts commit 270dac35c26433d06a89150c51e75ca0181ca7e4.

The commits causes command timeouts on AC plug/unplug.  It isn't yet
clear why.  As the commit was for a single rather obscure controller,
revert the change for now.

The problem was reported and bisected by Gu Rui in bug#34692.

 https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34692

Also, reported by Rafael and Michael in the following thread.

As we're already in -rc7, I'm sending the revert patch to both Jeff
and Linus.

Thank you.
