libata: Un-break ATA blacklist
commit 1c40279960bcd7d52dbdf1d466b20d24b99176c8 upstream. lib/glob.c provides a new glob_match() function, with arguments in (pattern, string) order. It replaced a private function with arguments in (string, pattern) order, but I didn't swap the call site... The result was the entire ATA blacklist was effectively disabled. The lesson for today is "I f***ed up *how* badly *how* many months ago?", er, I mean "Nobody Tests RC Kernels On Legacy Hardware". This was not a subtle break, but it made it through an entire RC cycle unreported, presumably because all the people doing testing have full-featured hardware. (FWIW, the reason for the argument swap was because fnmatch() does it that way, and for a while implementing a full fnmatch() was being considered.)
