libata-*.c implements the "Enclosure management" style led messages but also has hooks
to register a custom led control callback. Since Seattle platform does not support
the "Enclosure management" registers hence ata_port_info we are setting a ATA_FLAG_EM | ATA_FLAG_SW_ACIVITY
to indicate that we can still handle the led messages by our registered callback. I see
that sata_highbank driver is doing something similar.

Thanks for pointing syncon, are you thinking something like this ?

sgpio0: syscon@e0000078 {
compatible = "amd, seattle-sgpio", syscon";
reg = <0x0 0xe0000078 0x0 0x1>;

sata@e0300000 {
compatible = "amd,seattle-ahci";
reg = <0x0 0xe0300000 0x0 0xf0000>;
interrupts = <0x0 0x163 0x4>;
amd,sgpio-ctrl = <&sgpio0>;

SGPIO0 (0xe0000078) and SGPIO1 (0xe000007C) does not belong to any system control register set.
They are meant to be used by SATA driver only and no other driver should every touch it. It almost feels
its just extension of the IP block but it just happened to be way out of the IP block range.
Other register near to 0xe000_0078 and 0xe000_007C should not be mapped by OS.

But this syscon approach also brings another problem. Currently my code is pretty simple for mapping this regs

+ plat_data->sgpio_ctrl = devm_ioremap_resource(dev,
+ platform_get_resource(pdev, IORESOURCE_MEM, 1));
+ if (IS_ERR(plat_data->sgpio_ctrl))
+ return &ahci_port_info;

The above code works on ACPI and DT cases. But if we go with syncon approach then we need to handle DT and ACPI differently. Because sycon will provide struct regmap instead of struct resources and also make reading/writing a bit different. I was trying to minimize the DT vs ACPI changes in the driver (other than binding) hence I think defining two ranges in sata controller reg property was much cleaner and it aligns with DSDT.

Just for reference the SATA DSDT looks like this:

Device (SATA0)

Name(_CRS, ResourceTemplate()
Memory32Fixed(ReadWrite, 0xE03000000, 0x000010000)
Interrupt(ResourceConsumer, Level, ActiveHigh Exclusive,,,) { 387}
Memory32Fixed(ReadWrite, 0xE00000078, 1)
