    ata: Add documentation for hard disk shock protection interface (v3) · 9c6102d4
    Elias Oltmanns authored
    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.
