libata drivers don't need or support hdparm -u settings.

Well, IRQ 18 is taken offline during USB initialization. The IRQ is
shared with the SATA controller, so SATA controller doesn't work either.
It isn't clear why the IRQ handler is taken offline. It could be the
USB controller but can also be the SATA controller. Does not loading
usb driver make any difference?
