[PATCH][v2] driver/FSL SATA:Fix wrong Device Error Register usage

When a single device error is detected, the device under the error is indicated
by the error bit set in the DER. There is a one to one mapping between register
bit and devices on Port multiplier(PMP) i.e. bit 0 represents PMP device 0 and
bit 1 represents PMP device 1 etc.

Current implementation treats Device error register value as device number not
set of bits representing multiple device on PMP. It is changed to consider bit
No need to check for each set bit as all command is going to be aborted.
