libata: skip SRST for all SIMG [34]7x port-multipliers
commit 7a87718d92760fc688628ad6a430643dafa16f1f upstream. For some reason, a lot of port-multipliers have issues with softreset. SIMG [34]7x series port-multipliers have been quite erratic in this regard. I recall that it was better with some firmware revisions and the current list of quirks worked fine for a while. I think it got worse with later firmwares or maybe my test coverage wasn't good enough. Anyways, HPA is reporting that his 3726 setup suffers SRST failures and then the PMP gets confused and fails to probe the last port. The hope was that we try to stick to the standard as much as possible and soonish the PMPs and their firmwares will improve in quality, so the quirk list was kept to minimum. Well, it seems like that's never gonna happen. Let's set NO_SRST for all [34]7x PMPs so that whatever remaining userbase of the device suffer the least. Maybe we should do the same for 57xx's but unfortunately I don't have any device left to test and I'm not even sure 57xx's have ever been made widely available, so let's leave those alone for now.
