+Sat Dec 30 21:30 2000 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.0-20001230
+ - Initial release of SYM-2.
+Mon Jan 08 21:30 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.1-20010108
+ - Change a couple of defines containing ncr or NCR by their
+ equivalent containing sym or SYM instead.
+Sun Jan 14 22:30 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.2-20010114
+ - Fix a couple of printfs:
+ * Add the target number to the display of transfer parameters.
+ * Make the display of TCQ and queue depth clearer.
+Wed Jan 17 23:30 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.3-20010117
+ - Wrong residual values were returned in some situations.
+ This broke cdrecord with linux-2.4.0, for example.
+Sat Jan 20 18:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.4-20010120
+ - Add year 2001 to Copyright.
+ - A tiny bug in the dma memory freeing path has been fixed.
+ (Driver unload failed with a bad address reference).
+Wed Jan 24 21:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.5-20010124
+ - Make the driver work under Linux-2.4.x when statically linked
+ with the kernel.
+ - Check against memory allocation failure for SCRIPTZ and add the
+ missing free of this memory on instance detach.
+ - Check against GPIO3 pulled low for HVD controllers (driver did
+ just the opposite).
+ Misdetection of BUS mode was triggered on module reload only,
+ since BIOS settings were trusted instead on first load.
+Wed Feb 7 21:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.6-20010207
+ - Call pci_enable_device() as wished by kernel maintainers.
+ - Change the sym_queue_scsiio() interface.
+ This is intended to simplify portability.
+ - Move the code intended to deal with the dowloading of SCRIPTS
+ from SCRIPTS :) in the patch method (was wrongly placed in
+ the SCRIPTS setup method).
+ - Add a missing cpu_to_scr() (np->abort_tbl.addr)
+ - Remove a wrong cpu_to_scr() (np->targtbl_ba)
+ - Cleanup a bit the PPR failure recovery code.
+Sat Mar 3 21:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ - Add option SYM_OPT_ANNOUNCE_TRANSFER_RATE and move the
+ corresponding code to file sym_misc.c.
+ Also move the code that sniffes INQUIRY to sym_misc.c.
+ This allows to share the corresponding code with NetBSD
+ without polluating the core driver source (sym_hipd.c).
+ - Add optionnal code that handles IO timeouts from the driver.
+ (not used under Linux, but required for NetBSD)
+ - Donnot assume any longer that PAGE_SHIFT and PAGE_SIZE are
+ defined at compile time, as at least NetBSD uses variables
+ in memory for that.
+ - Refine a work-around for the C1010-33 that consists in
+ disabling internal LOAD/STORE. Was applied up to revision 1.
+ Is now only applied to revision 0.
+ - Some code reorganisations due to code moves between files.
+Tues Apr 10 21:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.9-20010412
+ - Reset 53C896 and 53C1010 chip according to the manual.
+ (i.e.: set the ABRT bit in ISTAT if SCRIPTS are running)
+ - Set #LUN in request sense only if scsi version <= 2 and
+ #LUN <= 7.
+ - Set busy_itl in LCB to 1 if the LCB is allocated and a
+ SCSI command is active. This is a simplification.
+ - In sym_hcb_free(), do not scan the free_ccbq if no CCBs
+ has been allocated. This fixes a panic if attach failed.
+ - Add DT/ST (double/simple transition) in the transfer
+ negotiation announce.
+ - Forces the max number of tasks per LUN to at least 64.
+ - Use pci_set_dma_mask() for linux-2.4.3 and above.
+ - A couple of comments fixes.
+Wed May 22:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.10-20010509
+ - Mask GPCNTL against 0x1c (was 0xfc) for the reading of the NVRAM.
+ This ensure LEDC bit will not be set on 896 and later chips.
+ Fix sent by Chip Salzenberg <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
+ - Define the number of PQS BUSes supported.
+ Fix sent by Stig Telfer <email@example.com>
+ - Miscellaneous common code rearrangements due to NetBSD accel
+ ioctl support, without impact on Linux (hopefully).
+Mon July 2 12:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.11-20010702
+ - Add Tekram 390 U2B/U2W SCSI LED handling.
+ Submitted by Chip Salzenberg <firstname.lastname@example.org>
+ - Add call to scsi_set_pci_device() for kernels >= 2.4.4.
+ - Check pci dma mapping failures and complete the IO with some
+ error when such mapping fails.
+ - Fill in instance->max_cmd_len for kernels > 2.4.0.
+ - A couple of tiny fixes ...
+Sun Sep 9 18:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.12-20010909
+ - Change my email address.
+ - Add infrastructure for the forthcoming 64 bit DMA addressing support.
+ (Based on PCI 64 bit patch from David S. Miller)
+ - Donnot use anymore vm_offset_t type.
+Sat Sep 15 20:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.13-20010916
+ - Add support for 64 bit DMA addressing using segment registers.
+ 16 registers for up to 4 GB x 16 -> 64 GB.
+Sat Sep 22 12:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.14-20010922
+ - Complete rewrite of the eh handling. The driver is now using a
+ semaphore in order to behave synchronously as required by the eh
+ threads. A timer is also used to prevent from waiting indefinitely.
+Sun Sep 30 17:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.15-20010930
+ - Include <linux/module.h> unconditionnaly as expected by latest
+ - Use del_timer_sync() for recent kernels to kill the driver timer
+ on module release.
+Sun Oct 28 15:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.16-20011028
+ - Slightly simplify driver configuration.
+ - Prepare a new patch against linux-2.4.13.
+Sat Nov 17 10:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.17
+ - Fix a couple of gcc/gcc3 warnings.
+ - Allocate separately from the HCB the array for CCBs hashed by DSA.
+ All driver memory allocations are now not greater than 1 PAGE
+ even on PPC64 / 4KB PAGE surprising setup.
+Sat Dec 01 18:00 2001 Gerard Roudier
+ * version sym-2.1.17a
+ - Use u_long instead of U32 for the IO base cookie. This is more
+ consistent with what archs are expecting.
+ - Use MMIO per default for Power PC instead of some fake normal IO,
+ as Paul Mackerras stated that MMIO works fine now on this arch.
