Function ata_sff_flush_pio_task use spin_lock_irq/spin_unlock_irq
to protect shared data.
spin_unlock_irq will enable interrupts.

In the interrupt handler nv_swncq_interrupt (./drivers/ata/sata_nv.c),
when ap->link.sactive is true, nv_swncq_host_interrupt was called.
nv_swncq_hotplug is called when NV_SWNCQ_IRQ_HOTPLUG is set.
Then it will follow this chain:
nv_swncq_hotplug -> sata_scr_read (./dirvers/ata/libata-core.c)
 -> sata_pmp_scr_read (./drivers/ata/libata-pmp.c)
 -> sata_pmp_read -> ata_exec_internal 
 -> ata_exec_internal_sg -> ata_sff_flush_pio_task

Interrupts are enabled in interrupt handler.
Use spin_lock_irqsave instead of spin_lock_irq to avoid this.
