    kernel - Fix three AHCI bugs
    * This fixes spurious timeouts which occur on SMP boxes with faster devices
      (such as SSDs or more recent hard drives)
    * The global interrupt status register appears to be latched on some parts
      rather than wire-or.  Clearing it after signaling the port threads or
      processing the interrupt can cause interrupts to be lost.
    * In cases where it is actually wire-or we may get a double-interrupt,
      but stability is more important here.
    * Fix the port signaling code.  The mask was being cleared with the
      port interlock released.  It has to be cleared when the interlock is
    * Reorder the per-port interrupt status register clearing code in two
      places to execute before processing the operation rather than after,
      which may fix another source of lost interrupts.
