Yes, single port should handle both master and slave devices on one cable,
provided that ATA_FLAG_SLAVE_POSS is set in port flags:

Btw, I noticed that host->n_ports is already set in ata_host_alloc, so I'll
remove unneeded line from the driver.

I just tested two disks on one cable, and it works correctly (my previous tests
were limited to only one disk or CF card).

Thanks,
