Subject: drivers/libata: Set max sector to 65535 for Slimtype DVD A DS8A9SH
 drive

commit 0523f037f65dba10191b0fa9c51266f90ba64630 upstream.

The "Slimtype DVD A  DS8A9SH" drive locks up with following backtrace when
the max sector is smaller than 65535 bytes, fix it by adding a quirk to set
the max sector to 65535 bytes.

INFO: task flush-11:0:663 blocked for more than 120 seconds.
"echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message.
