libata: Fix several inaccuracies in developer's guide
Commit 6bfff31e77cfa1b13490337e5a4dbaa3407e83ac (libata: kill probe_ent and related helpers) killed ata_device_add() but didn't remove references to it from the libata developer's guide. Commits 9363c3825ea9ad76561eb48a395349dd29211ed6 (libata: rename SFF functions) and 5682ed33aae05d10a25c95633ef9d9c062825888 (libata: rename SFF port ops) renamed the taskfile access methods but didn't update the developer's guide. Commit c9f75b04ed5ed65a058d18a8a8dda50632a96de8 (libata: kill ata_noop_dev_select()) didn't update the developer's guide as well. The guide also refers to the long gone ata_pio_data_xfer_noirq(), ata_pio_data_xfer(), and ata_mmio_data_xfer() -- replace those by the modern ata_sff_data_xfer_noirq(), ata_sff_data_xfer(), and ata_sff_data_xfer32(). Also, remove the reference to non-existant ata_port_stop()... Signed-off-by: Sergei Shtylyov <sshtylyov@ru.mvista.com> Signed-off-by: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@redhat.com>
