Heh... I never thought a PMP aware controller would use TF SRST, so what
you want to do is set pmp value in the register and calling
ata_std_softreset(), right?  I think the correct thing to do is to
separate out SRST sequence proper from ata_std_softreset() into, say,
ata_sff_SRST() and build custom softreset around it.  After all, the
problem here is the reset sequence not the SCR access.
