I was about to submit this upstream and was planning on extending it to
also cover the 960GB version, which lead to me doing a quick google.
Judging from the google results it seems that there are multiple firmware
versions of this SSD out there and I wonder if you are perhaps running
an older version of the firmware. If you do:

dmesg | grep Crucial_CT480M500

You should see something like this:

ata2.00: ATA-9: Crucial_CT480M500SSD3, MU03, max UDMA/133

I'm interested in the "MU03" part, what is that in your case?

Note I'm not saying we should not do the NOLPM quirk, but maybe we
can limit it to older firmware.

Regards,

Hans
