Subject: [PATCH 3.13 161/259] libata: support the ata host which implements a queue depth less than 32

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kevin Hao <haokexin@...il.com>

commit 1871ee134b73fb4cadab75752a7152ed2813c751 upstream.

The sata on fsl mpc8315e is broken after the commit 8a4aeec8d2d6
("libata/ahci: accommodate tag ordered controllers"). The reason is
that the ata controller on this SoC only implement a queue depth of
16. When issuing the commands in tag order, all the commands in tag
16 ~ 31 are mapped to tag 0 unconditionally and then causes the sata
malfunction. It makes no senses to use a 32 queue in software while
the hardware has less queue depth. So consider the queue depth
implemented by the hardware when requesting a command tag.

Fixes: 8a4aeec8d2d6 ("libata/ahci: accommodate tag ordered controllers")
