    libpayload: New AHCI, ATA and ATAPI drivers
    This adds a new interface for storage devices. A driver for ATA and
    ATAPI drives on AHCI host controllers comes along.
    The interface is very simple and was designed to match FILO's needs.
    It consists of three functions:
      void storage_initialize(void);
      Initializes controllers. Should be called once at startup.
      storage_poll_t storage_probe(size_t dev_num);
         with typedef enum {
                POLL_NO_DEVICE      = -2,
                POLL_ERROR          = -1,
                POLL_NO_MEDIUM      =  0,
                POLL_MEDIUM_PRESENT =  1,
              } storage_poll_t;
      Looks for a drive with number dev_num (drives are counted from
      zero) and polls for a medium in the drive if appropriate.
      int storage_read_blocks512(size_t dev_num,
                                 u64 start, size_t count,
                                 unsigned char *buf);
      Reads count blocks of 512 bytes from block start of drive dev_num
      into buf.
