sata_nv: use hardreset only for post-boot probing

When I thought it was finally defeated, it came back with vengeance.
The failure cases are ever more convoluted.  Now there is a single
combination which fails boot probing - MCP5x + Intel SSD and there are
two hotplug failure reports on different flavors where softreset fails
to bring up the device.

Through the many bug reports after the switch to hardreset, the
following patterns emerged.

- Softreset during boot always works.

- Hardreset during boot sometimes fails to bring up the link on
  certain comibnations and device signature acquisition is unreliable.

- Hardreset is often necessary after hotplug.

It looks like the old behavior of preferring softreset was somehow
pretty close to the working reset protocol although it could have lost
a device during phy error handling by issuing hardreset.

This patch implements nv_hardreset() which kicks in only for post-boot
(!LOADING) device probing resets.  This should be able to work around
all known problem cases.  This isn't perfect but given the various
hardreset quirks on these controllers, I think this is as good as it
can get.

Tested on mcp5x (swncq), nf3 and ck804 for all both boot, warm and
hot probing cases.

Kudos to all the bug reporters and their painful hours with these damn
controllers.  ;-)

* NV SATA controllers have various different problems with hardreset
* protocol depending on the specific controller and device.
*
* GENERIC:
*
* bko11195 reports that link doesn't come online after hardreset on
* generic nv's and there have been several other similar reports on
* linux-ide.
*
* bko12351#c23 reports that warmplug on MCP61 doesn't work with
* softreset.
*
* NF2/3:
*
* bko3352 reports nf2/3 controllers can't determine device signature
* reliably after hardreset. The following thread reports detection
* failure on cold boot with the standard debouncing timing.
*
* http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ide/34098
*
* bko12176 reports that hardreset fails to bring up the link during
* boot on nf2.
*
* CK804:
*
* For initial probing after boot and hot plugging, hardreset mostly
* works fine on CK804 but curiously, reprobing on the initial port
* by rescanning or rmmod/insmod fails to acquire the initial D2H Reg
* FIS in somewhat undeterministic way.
*
* SWNCQ:
*
* bko12351 reports that when SWNCQ is enabled, for hotplug to work,
* hardreset should be used and hardreset can't report proper
* signature, which suggests that mcp5x is closer to nf2 as long as
* reset quirkiness is concerned.
*
* bko12703 reports that boot probing fails for intel SSD with
* hardreset. Link fails to come online. Softreset works fine.
*
* The failures are varied but the following patterns seem true for
* all flavors.
*
* - Softreset during boot always works.
*
* - Hardreset during boot sometimes fails to bring up the link on
* certain comibnations and device signature acquisition is
* unreliable.
*
* - Hardreset is often necessary after hotplug.
*
* So, preferring softreset for boot probing and error handling (as
* hardreset might bring down the link) but using hardreset for
* post-boot probing should work around the above issues in most
* cases. Define nv_hardreset() which only kicks in for post-boot
* probing and use it for all variants.
