hdparm: updated wiper-1.1 script available

The wiper.sh v1.0 script from hdparm would sometimes be confused by /dev/root entries in /proc/mounts, causing it to sometimes not warn about attempts to run wiper.sh on a mounted root filesystem.

This bug is fixed in wiper v1.1, now available as a separate download package here. This version of the wiper.sh script is also MICH faster than the one shipped with hdparm-9.20.

hdparm-9.20 is now available.

More work/rework of the TRIM and wiper scripts.
Now they actually work correctly, and should be reasonably safe to use.
