Subject[PATCH 4/5] scsi: libsas: check the ata device status by ata_dev_enabled()
When ata device IDENTIFY failed, the ata device status is
ATA_DEV_UNKNOWN. The libata reported like:

[113518.620433] ata5.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
[113518.653646] ata5.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x4)

But libsas verifies the device status by ata_dev_disabled(), which
skiped ATA_DEV_UNKNOWN. This will make libsas think the ata device
probing succeed the device cannot be actually brought up. And even the
new bcast of this device will be considered as flutter and will not
probe this device again.

Change ata_dev_disabled() to !ata_dev_enabled() so that libsas can
deal with this if the ata device probe failed. New bcasts can let us
try to probe the device again and bring it up if it is fine to
