Per your request at the last SAS call here is my suggestion for a new name
for the SPIN UP primitive. I suggest ENABLE INTERNAL POWER. The problem is
using SPIN UP is that it assumes all SAS devices are of a type that can be
spun up. I do not believe this is true however any device may enable
internal power sequencing.

Bye for now,
