The order is somewhat reversed here and I can understand why you're
frustrated but I'm just trying to make things look right in long term,
so feel free to bother me. :-) For temporary solution, I'm okay either
way.  I'll clean things up later when the necessary core changes are made.

* Adding ->pmp_select or ->scr_pmp_rw or whatever callback to work
around the current problem.

* Duplicate code in sata_mv.

Whichever way you go, can you please mark where it's different and why?
