Subject: Remove apparently dead CONFIG_NO_ATA_LEGACY code.

Remove the single snippet of code conditional on the non-existent
CONFIG_NO_ATA_LEGACY Kconfig variable.

Signed-off-by: Robert P. J. Day <>


  i would have mailed a note about this to the ATA maintainer but it
wasn't clear who that was.  this is the only dead CONFIG_ variable
under drivers/ata so i figured i'd just submit the patch.
