Linus Torvalds 7efd0a7403 ata fixes for 6.9-rc4
- Add the mask_port_map parameter to the ahci driver. This is a
    follow-up to the recent snafu with the ASMedia controller and its
    virtual port hidding port-multiplier devices. As ASMedia confirmed
    that there is no way to determine if these slow-to-probe virtual
    ports are actually representing the ports of a port-multiplier
    devices, this new parameter allow masking ports to significantly
    speed up probing during system boot, resulting in shorter boot times.
 
  - A fix for an incorrect handling of a port unlock in
    ata_scsi_dev_rescan().
 
  - Allow command duration limits to be detected for ACS-4 devices are
    there are such devices out in the field.

README

Linux kernel
============

There are several guides for kernel developers and users. These guides can
be rendered in a number of formats, like HTML and PDF. Please read
Documentation/admin-guide/README.rst first.

In order to build the documentation, use ``make htmldocs`` or
``make pdfdocs``.  The formatted documentation can also be read online at:

    https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/

There are various text files in the Documentation/ subdirectory,
several of them using the reStructuredText markup notation.

Please read the Documentation/process/changes.rst file, as it contains the
requirements for building and running the kernel, and information about
the problems which may result by upgrading your kernel.
