libata-pmp: clear hob for pmp register accesses

This behavior has been confirmed by Marvell with a SATA analyzer.
The Marvell port-multiplier apparently likes to see clean HOB
information when accessing PMP registers.

Since sata_mv uses PIO shadow register access, this doesn't happen
automatically, as it might in a more purely FIS-based driver (eg. ahci).

One way to fix this is to flag these commands with ATA_TFLAG_LBA48,
forcing libata to write out the HOB fields with known (zero) values.
