      ata: Add documentation for hard disk shock protection interface (v3) · 9c6102d4
      Elias Oltmanns authored
      Put some information (and pointers to more) into the kernel's doc tree,
      describing briefly the interface to the kernel's disk head unloading
      facility. Information about how to set up a complete shock protection
      system under GNU/Linux can be found on the web and is referenced
      Here is some final polish including various spelling corrections
      pointed out by Grant Grundler and Peter Moulder. Also, I have added some
      information about the timing constraints related to disk head parking.
      The patch looks more impressive than it really is and I think it would
      be alright just to incorporate it into the original patch so as not to
      clutter up the git log.

      ide: Implement disk shock protection support (v4) · 4abdc6ee
      Elias Oltmanns authored
      On user request (through sysfs), the IDLE IMMEDIATE command with UNLOAD
      FEATURE as specified in ATA-7 is issued to the device and processing of
      the request queue is stopped thereafter until the specified timeout
      expires or user space asks to resume normal operation. This is supposed
      to prevent the heads of a hard drive from accidentally crashing onto the
      platter when a heavy shock is anticipated (like a falling laptop expected
      to hit the floor). Port resets are deferred whenever a device on that
      port is in the parked state.

      Fix a memory leak due to a missing blk_put_request() in
      issue_park_cmd(). Additionally, we should plug the queue when enqueueing
      the unpark request because there is no guarantee that the park timeout
      has not expired by then. Even though the chance for that to happen is
      very slim, the request might end up hanging in the queue until the next
      I/O operation is queued up. While at it, clean up the code a little:
      - make issue_park_cmd() a function of type void since nobody cares for
        the return value anyway;
      - use blk_start_queueing() instead of __blk_run_queue() since we don't
        have to worry about recursion;
      - remove a superfluous pointer deference in task_no_data_intr().
