libata-acpi: add back ACPI based hotplug functionality

Commit 30dcf76a "libata: migrate ACPI code over to new bindings"
mistakenly dropped the code to register hotplug notificaion handler
for ATA port/devices, causing regression for people using ATA bay,
as kernel bug #59871 shows.

Fix this by adding back the hotplug notification handler registration
code.  Since this code has to be run once and notification needs to
be installed on every ATA port/devices handle no matter if there is
actual device attached, we can't do this in binding time for ATA
device ACPI handle, as the binding only occurs when a SCSI device is
created, i.e. there is device attached.  So introduce the
ata_acpi_hotplug_init() function to loop scan all ATA ACPI handles
and if it is available, install the notificaion handler for it during
ATA init time.

With the ATA ACPI handle binding to SCSI device tree, it is possible
now that when the SCSI hotplug work removes the SCSI device, the ACPI
unbind function will find that the corresponding ACPI device has
already been deleted by dock driver, causing a scaring message like:
[  128.263966] scsi 4:0:0:0: Oops, 'acpi_handle' corrupt
Fix this by waiting for SCSI hotplug task finish in our notificaion
handler, so that the removal of ACPI device done in ACPI unbind
function triggered by the removal of SCSI device is run earlier when
ACPI device is still available.
