libata:pata_atiixp: Don't use unconnected secondary port on SB600
The AMD SB600 southbridge has an PATA IDE interface, but the secondary port has no physical connections, so is disabled in the PCI header which makes it appear as a legacy port. On most systems this causes no trouble, but the Amigaone X1000 has an SB600 connected to a PowerPC SoC PCI-e root port, with an emulated ISA bus. On this system a kernel panic occurs at boot time during device attach for the secondary port. Mark the port as 'dummy' to prevent this. As a bonus, disabling this will slightly speed up booting on PC systems using an SB600 as they will now skip 2 known empty ports.
