2008-10-13ata: Add documentation for hard disk shock protection interface (v3)Elias Oltmanns1-0/+149
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 accordingly. v3: 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.
