ATA: Make sure "hard disk" supports power management
The FC-1307 CF->SD converter that is the basis of a lot of ATA->CF devices (including several iflash iFlash models) claims to not support ATA power management commands. Rockbox unconditionally issues those commands as support is mandated by the ATA spec. This patch checks the capability bit, and if it's not supported, does not attempt to put the ATA subsystem to sleep. It is not clear if the problems lie with the SLEEP commands or the wakeup process, but who knows where else the FC1307 violates the ATA specs, and reliability is much more important than power savings.
