SRU justification:

Impact: sata_nv regression, reboots system. Since 2.6.23 somewhere,
sata_nv has gained improved exception handling, but there is a serious
regression that causes a system reboot. 

Testcase: run # hdparm -W 0 /dev/sda ; hdparm -W 0 /dev/sdb. On Gutsy,
this gives periodic kernel messages, but on Hardy it fails terribly. XFS
filesystem shutdown due to error, and most times system reboots without
any messages to serial console.

Patch in my PPA tested and verified
