Add hotswap capability to Serverworks/BroadCom SATA controlers. The
controler has SIM register and it selects which bits in SATA_ERROR
register fires interrupt.
The solution hooks on COMWAKE (plug), PHYRDY change and 10B8B decode error (unplug) and calls into Lukasz's hotswap framework.
The code got one day testing on dual core Athlon64 H8SSL Supermicro MoBo with HT-1000 SATA, SMP kernel and two CaviarRE SATA HDDs in
hotswap bays.

What became of this?

I might be to blame for not testing it... The Xserve I had on my desk
was too noisy for most of my co-workers so I kept delaying and forgot
about it....

Also the Xserve I have only has one disk, which makes hotplug testing a
bit harder :-)

Unfortunately my box with ht1000 is already deployed. Another similar one should
arrive soon so that I'll retest it.
Just now I've VIA based mobo here - and hotswap is NOT working with it ..
