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


From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit f3faf8fc3fab45c3526efe8c9e99bb23f8723350 upstream.

On mcp55, nIEN gets stuck once set and liteon blueray rom iHOS104-08
violates ATA specification and fails to set I on D2H Reg FIS if nIEN
is set when the command was issued.  When the other party is following
the spec, both devices can work fine but when the two flaws are put
together, they can't talk to each other.

mcp55 has its own IRQ masking mechanism and there's no reason to mess
with nIEN in the first place.  Fix it by dropping nIEN diddling from

This was originally reported by Cengiz.  Although Cengiz hasn't
verified the fix yet, I could reproduce this problem and verfiy the
fix.  Even if Cengiz is experiencing different or additional problems,
this patch is needed.
