SYNOPSIS int ata_std_qc_defer(struct ata_queued_cmd * qc);

DESCRIPTION Non-NCQ commands cannot run with any other command, NCQ or not. As upper layer only knows the queue depth, we are responsible for maintaining exclusion. This function checks whether a new command qc can be issued.

LOCKING spin_lock_irqsave(host lock)
