[upgrade request] hdparm


hdparm hasn't been upgraded for a while.

v9.38 has an interesting option (-J flag) for managing head parking (Intellipark) of some WD green HD.

It is an easy upgrade, just drop into slackware/source/a/hdparm/ and remove hdparm-9.37.tar.gz, then run hdparm.SlackBuild and your new hdparm-9.43-*.txz is in /tmp.
