The interrupt occurs *before* the device de-asserts BUSY. A small pause is needed to allow the device to clear BUSY and allow libata to function normally.
Calling ata_sff_host_intr() while BUSY is asserted causes the driver to fail, as it is expecting to be called from a true IDE interrupt routine. Delaying calling ata_sff_host_intr() until BUSY is clear (using the tasklet) seemed to be the cleanest way to write the driver given that we are using an interrupt generated by DMA complete.
