Please drop the dot at the end of the patch title. Also, it would be good to be
more precise with this title. So may be something like:

libata: Disable ATA_CMD_READ_LOG_DMA_EXT use with PATA adapters

Also, please add a version number to the patch so that reviewers (and Jens) can
keep track:

[PATCH v2] libata: Disable ATA_CMD_READ_LOG_DMA_EXT use with PATA adapters

And add the versions changelog here. Something like:

Changes from v1:
* Change 1
* change 2
* ...
