  imx6: sata fixes

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  SRU Justification:


  /dev/sda doesn't show up on imx6 board and while support for the sata controller was submitted upstream[1], we were missing a dts snippet that didn't make the 3.11 window (but entered as part of 3.12, thus i cherry-picked plus some mechanical 
  modification to make it apply).

  Moreover, building this driver as a module triggers an error when

  as it appears it's the same driver that tries to create the same
  sysfile multiple times, failing:

  root@ubuntu-desktop:~# cat /sys/bus/platform/devices/ahci/uevent

  Statically compiling support for AHCI_IMX works workaround this
  problem (and all the other kernel supporting this board - indeed -
  compile this driver statically BTW), so until a proper fix is found, i
  propose to compile it in.


  apply the two patches below


  compile a patched kernel and boot it
