+General Description
+===================
+
+This driver supports the 53c700 and 53c700-66 chips. It also supports
+the 53c710 but only in 53c700 emulation mode. It is full featured and
+does sync (-66 and 710 only), disconnects and tag command queueing.
+
+Since the 53c700 must be interfaced to a bus, you need to wrapper the
+card detector around this driver. For an example, see the
+NCR_D700.[ch] or lasi700.[ch] files.
+
+The comments in the 53c700.[ch] files tell you which parts you need to
+fill in to get the driver working.
+
+
+Compile Time Flags
+==================
+
+A compile time flag is:
+
+CONFIG_53C700_LE_ON_BE
+
+define if the chipset must be supported in little endian mode on a big
+endian architecture (used for the 700 on parisc).
+
+
+Using the Chip Core Driver
+==========================
+
+In order to plumb the 53c700 chip core driver into a working SCSI
+driver, you need to know three things about the way the chip is wired
+into your system (or expansion card).
+
+1. The clock speed of the SCSI core
+2. The interrupt line used
+3. The memory (or io space) location of the 53c700 registers.
+
+Optionally, you may also need to know other things, like how to read
+the SCSI Id from the card bios or whether the chip is wired for
+differential operation.
+
+Usually you can find items 2. and 3. from general spec. documents or
+even by examining the configuration of a working driver under another
+operating system.
+
+The clock speed is usually buried deep in the technical literature.
+It is required because it is used to set up both the synchronous and
+asynchronous dividers for the chip. As a general rule of thumb,
+manufacturers set the clock speed at the lowest possible setting
+consistent with the best operation of the chip (although some choose
+to drive it off the CPU or bus clock rather than going to the expense
+of an extra clock chip). The best operation clock speeds are:
+
+53c700 - 25MHz
+53c700-66 - 50MHz
+53c710 - 40Mhz
+
+Writing Your Glue Driver
+========================
+
+This will be a standard SCSI driver (I don't know of a good document
+describing this, just copy from some other driver) with at least a
+detect and release entry.
+
+In the detect routine, you need to allocate a struct
+NCR_700_Host_Parameters sized memory area and clear it (so that the
+default values for everything are 0). Then you must fill in the
+parameters that matter to you (see below), plumb the NCR_700_intr
+routine into the interrupt line and call NCR_700_detect with the host
+template and the new parameters as arguments. You should also call
+the relevant request_*_region function and place the register base
+address into the `base' pointer of the host parameters.
+
+In the release routine, you must free the NCR_700_Host_Parameters that
+you allocated, call the corresponding release_*_region and free the
+interrupt.
+
+Handling Interrupts
+-------------------
+
+In general, you should just plumb the card's interrupt line in with
+
+request_irq(irq, NCR_700_intr, <irq flags>, <driver name>, host);
+
+where host is the return from the relevant NCR_700_detect() routine.
+
+You may also write your own interrupt handling routine which calls
+NCR_700_intr() directly. However, you should only really do this if
+you have a card with more than one chip on it and you can read a
+register to tell which set of chips wants the interrupt.
+
+Settable NCR_700_Host_Parameters
+--------------------------------
+
+The following are a list of the user settable parameters:
+
+clock: (MANDATORY)
+
+Set to the clock speed of the chip in MHz.
+
+base: (MANDATORY)
+
+set to the base of the io or mem region for the register set. On 64
+bit architectures this is only 32 bits wide, so the registers must be
+mapped into the low 32 bits of memory.
+
+pci_dev: (OPTIONAL)
+
+set to the PCI board device. Leave NULL for a non-pci board. This is
+used for the pci_alloc_consistent() and pci_map_*() functions.
+
+dmode_extra: (OPTIONAL, 53c710 only)
+
+extra flags for the DMODE register. These are used to control bus
+output pins on the 710. The settings should be a combination of
+DMODE_FC1 and DMODE_FC2. What these pins actually do is entirely up
+to the board designer. Usually it is safe to ignore this setting.
+
+differential: (OPTIONAL)
+
+set to 1 if the chip drives a differential bus.
+
+force_le_on_be: (OPTIONAL, only if CONFIG_53C700_LE_ON_BE is set)
+
+set to 1 if the chip is operating in little endian mode on a big
+endian architecture.
+
+chip710: (OPTIONAL)
+
+set to 1 if the chip is a 53c710.
+
+burst_disable: (OPTIONAL, 53c710 only)
+
+disable 8 byte bursting for DMA transfers.

+ BusLogic MultiMaster and FlashPoint SCSI Driver for Linux

+
+ PRODUCTION RELEASE

+
+ INTRODUCTION
+
+BusLogic, Inc. designed and manufactured a variety of high performance SCSI
+host adapters which share a common programming interface across a diverse
+collection of bus architectures by virtue of their MultiMaster ASIC technology.
+BusLogic was acquired by Mylex Corporation in February 1996, but the products
+supported by this driver originated under the BusLogic name and so that name is
+retained in the source code and documentation.
+
+This driver supports all present BusLogic MultiMaster Host Adapters, and should
+support any future MultiMaster designs with little or no modification. More
+recently, BusLogic introduced the FlashPoint Host Adapters, which are less
+costly and rely on the host CPU, rather than including an onboard processor.
+Despite not having an onboard CPU, the FlashPoint Host Adapters perform very
+well and have very low command latency. BusLogic has recently provided me with
+the FlashPoint Driver Developer's Kit, which comprises documentation and freely
+redistributable source code for the FlashPoint SCCB Manager. The SCCB Manager
+is the library of code that runs on the host CPU and performs functions
+analogous to the firmware on the MultiMaster Host Adapters. Thanks to their
+having provided the SCCB Manager, this driver now supports the FlashPoint Host
+Adapters as well.
+
+My primary goals in writing this completely new BusLogic driver for Linux are
+to achieve the full performance that BusLogic SCSI Host Adapters and modern
+SCSI peripherals are capable of, and to provide a highly robust driver that can
+be depended upon for high performance mission critical applications. All of
+the major performance features can be configured from the Linux kernel command
+line or at module initialization time, allowing individual installations to
+tune driver performance and error recovery to their particular needs.
+
+The latest information on Linux support for BusLogic SCSI Host Adapters, as
+well as the most recent release of this driver and the latest firmware for the
+BT-948/958/958D, will always be available from my Linux Home Page at URL
+"http://sourceforge.net/projects/dandelion/".
+
+Bug reports should be sent via electronic mail to "lnz@dandelion.com". Please
+include with the bug report the complete configuration messages reported by the
+driver and SCSI subsystem at startup, along with any subsequent system messages
+relevant to SCSI operations, and a detailed description of your system's
+hardware configuration.
+
+Mylex has been an excellent company to work with and I highly recommend their
+products to the Linux community. In November 1995, I was offered the
+opportunity to become a beta test site for their latest MultiMaster product,
+the BT-948 PCI Ultra SCSI Host Adapter, and then again for the BT-958 PCI Wide
+Ultra SCSI Host Adapter in January 1996. This was mutually beneficial since
+Mylex received a degree and kind of testing that their own testing group cannot
+readily achieve, and the Linux community has available high performance host
+adapters that have been well tested with Linux even before being brought to
+market. This relationship has also given me the opportunity to interact
+directly with their technical staff, to understand more about the internal
+workings of their products, and in turn to educate them about the needs and
+potential of the Linux community.
+
+More recently, Mylex has reaffirmed the company's interest in supporting the
+Linux community, and I am now working on a Linux driver for the DAC960 PCI RAID
+Controllers. Mylex's interest and support is greatly appreciated.
+
+Unlike some other vendors, if you contact Mylex Technical Support with a
+problem and are running Linux, they will not tell you that your use of their
+products is unsupported. Their latest product marketing literature even states
+"Mylex SCSI host adapters are compatible with all major operating systems
+including: ... Linux ...".

+
+
+ DRIVER FEATURES
+
+o Configuration Reporting and Testing
+
+ During system initialization, the driver reports extensively on the host
+ adapter hardware configuration, including the synchronous transfer parameters
+ requested and negotiated with each target device. AutoSCSI settings for
+ Synchronous Negotiation, Wide Negotiation, and Disconnect/Reconnect are
+ reported for each target device, as well as the status of Tagged Queuing.
+ If the same setting is in effect for all target devices, then a single word
+ or phrase is used; otherwise, a letter is provided for each target device to
+ indicate the individual status. The following examples
+ should clarify this reporting format:
+
+ Synchronous Negotiation: Ultra
+
+ Synchronous negotiation is enabled for all target devices and the host
+ adapter will attempt to negotiate for 20.0 mega-transfers/second.
+
+ Synchronous Negotiation: Fast
+
+ Synchronous negotiation is enabled for all target devices and the host
+ adapter will attempt to negotiate for 10.0 mega-transfers/second.
+
+ Synchronous Negotiation: Slow
+
+ Synchronous negotiation is enabled for all target devices and the host
+ adapter will attempt to negotiate for 5.0 mega-transfers/second.
+
+ Synchronous Negotiation: Disabled
+
+ Synchronous negotiation is disabled and all target devices are limited to
+ asynchronous operation.
+
+ Synchronous Negotiation: UFSNUUU#UUUUUUUU
+
+ Synchronous negotiation to Ultra speed is enabled for target devices 0
+ and 4 through 15, to Fast speed for target device 1, to Slow speed for
+ target device 2, and is not permitted to target device 3. The host
+ adapter's SCSI ID is represented by the "#".
+
+ The status of Wide Negotiation, Disconnect/Reconnect, and Tagged Queuing
+ are reported as "Enabled", Disabled", or a sequence of "Y" and "N" letters.
+
+o Performance Features
+
+ BusLogic SCSI Host Adapters directly implement SCSI-2 Tagged Queuing, and so
+ support has been included in the driver to utilize tagged queuing with any
+ target devices that report having the tagged queuing capability. Tagged
+ queuing allows for multiple outstanding commands to be issued to each target
+ device or logical unit, and can improve I/O performance substantially. In
+ addition, BusLogic's Strict Round Robin Mode is used to optimize host adapter
+ performance, and scatter/gather I/O can support as many segments as can be
+ effectively utilized by the Linux I/O subsystem. Control over the use of
+ tagged queuing for each target device as well as individual selection of the
+ tagged queue depth is available through driver options provided on the kernel
+ command line or at module initialization time. By default, the queue depth
+ is determined automatically based on the host adapter's total queue depth and
+ the number, type, speed, and capabilities of the target devices found. In
+ addition, tagged queuing is automatically disabled whenever the host adapter
+ firmware version is known not to implement it correctly, or whenever a tagged
+ queue depth of 1 is selected. Tagged queuing is also disabled for individual
+ target devices if disconnect/reconnect is disabled for that device.
+
+o Robustness Features
+
+ The driver implements extensive error recovery procedures. When the higher
+ level parts of the SCSI subsystem request that a timed out command be reset,
+ a selection is made between a full host adapter hard reset and SCSI bus reset
+ versus sending a bus device reset message to the individual target device
+ based on the recommendation of the SCSI subsystem. Error recovery strategies
+ are selectable through driver options individually for each target device,
+ and also include sending a bus device reset to the specific target device
+ associated with the command being reset, as well as suppressing error
+ recovery entirely to avoid perturbing an improperly functioning device. If
+ the bus device reset error recovery strategy is selected and sending a bus
+ device reset does not restore correct operation, the next command that is
+ reset will force a full host adapter hard reset and SCSI bus reset. SCSI bus
+ resets caused by other devices and detected by the host adapter are also
+ handled by issuing a soft reset to the host adapter and re-initialization.
+ Finally, if tagged queuing is active and more than one command reset occurs
+ in a 10 minute interval, or if a command reset occurs within the first 10
+ minutes of operation, then tagged queuing will be disabled for that target
+ device. These error recovery options improve overall system robustness by
+ preventing individual errant devices from causing the system as a whole to
+ lock up or crash, and thereby allowing a clean shutdown and restart after the
+ offending component is removed.
+
+o PCI Configuration Support
+
+ On PCI systems running kernels compiled with PCI BIOS support enabled, this
+ driver will interrogate the PCI configuration space and use the I/O port
+ addresses assigned by the system BIOS, rather than the ISA compatible I/O
+ port addresses. The ISA compatible I/O port address is then disabled by the
+ driver. On PCI systems it is also recommended that the AutoSCSI utility be
+ used to disable the ISA compatible I/O port entirely as it is not necessary.
+ The ISA compatible I/O port is disabled by default on the BT-948/958/958D.
+
+o /proc File System Support
+
+ Copies of the host adapter configuration information together with updated
+ data transfer and error recovery statistics are available through the
+ /proc/scsi/BusLogic/<N> interface.
+
+o Shared Interrupts Support
+
+ On systems that support shared interrupts, any number of BusLogic Host
+ Adapters may share the same interrupt request channel.
+
+

+The retail kit model numbers are found by replacing BT- with KT- in the above
+list. The retail kit includes the bare board and manual as well as cabling and
+driver media and documentation that are not provided with bare boards.
+
+
+ FLASHPOINT INSTALLATION NOTES
+
+o RAIDPlus Support
+
+ FlashPoint Host Adapters now include RAIDPlus, Mylex's bootable software
+ RAID. RAIDPlus is not supported on Linux, and there are no plans to support
+ it. The MD driver in Linux 2.0 provides for concatenation (LINEAR) and
+ striping (RAID-0), and support for mirroring (RAID-1), fixed parity (RAID-4),
+ and distributed parity (RAID-5) is available separately. The built-in Linux
+ RAID support is generally more flexible and is expected to perform better
+ than RAIDPlus, so there is little impetus to include RAIDPlus support in the
+ BusLogic driver.
+
+o Enabling UltraSCSI Transfers
+
+ FlashPoint Host Adapters ship with their configuration set to "Factory
+ Default" settings that are conservative and do not allow for UltraSCSI speed
+ to be negotiated. This results in fewer problems when these host adapters
+ are installed in systems with cabling or termination that is not sufficient
+ for UltraSCSI operation, or where existing SCSI devices do not properly
+ respond to synchronous transfer negotiation for UltraSCSI speed. AutoSCSI
+ may be used to load "Optimum Performance" settings which allow UltraSCSI
+ speed to be negotiated with all devices, or UltraSCSI speed can be enabled on
+ an individual basis. It is recommended that SCAM be manually disabled after
+ the "Optimum Performance" settings are loaded.
+
+
+ BT-948/958/958D INSTALLATION NOTES
+
+The BT-948/958/958D PCI Ultra SCSI Host Adapters have some features which may
+require attention in some circumstances when installing Linux.
+
+o PCI I/O Port Assignments
+
+ When configured to factory default settings, the BT-948/958/958D will only
+ recognize the PCI I/O port assignments made by the motherboard's PCI BIOS.
+ The BT-948/958/958D will not respond to any of the ISA compatible I/O ports
+ that previous BusLogic SCSI Host Adapters respond to. This driver supports
+ the PCI I/O port assignments, so this is the preferred configuration.
+ However, if the obsolete BusLogic driver must be used for any reason, such as
+ a Linux distribution that does not yet use this driver in its boot kernel,
+ BusLogic has provided an AutoSCSI configuration option to enable a legacy ISA
+ compatible I/O port.
+
+ To enable this backward compatibility option, invoke the AutoSCSI utility via
+ Ctrl-B at system startup and select "Adapter Configuration", "View/Modify
+ Configuration", and then change the "ISA Compatible Port" setting from
+ "Disable" to "Primary" or "Alternate". Once this driver has been installed,
+ the "ISA Compatible Port" option should be set back to "Disable" to avoid
+ possible future I/O port conflicts. The older BT-946C/956C/956CD also have
+ this configuration option, but the factory default setting is "Primary".
+
+o PCI Slot Scanning Order
+
+ In systems with multiple BusLogic PCI Host Adapters, the order in which the
+ PCI slots are scanned may appear reversed with the BT-948/958/958D as
+ compared to the BT-946C/956C/956CD. For booting from a SCSI disk to work
+ correctly, it is necessary that the host adapter's BIOS and the kernel agree
+ on which disk is the boot device, which requires that they recognize the PCI
+ host adapters in the same order. The motherboard's PCI BIOS provides a
+ standard way of enumerating the PCI host adapters, which is used by the Linux
+ kernel. Some PCI BIOS implementations enumerate the PCI slots in order of
+ increasing bus number and device number, while others do so in the opposite
+ direction.
+
+ Unfortunately, Microsoft decided that Windows 95 would always enumerate the
+ PCI slots in order of increasing bus number and device number regardless of
+ the PCI BIOS enumeration, and requires that their scheme be supported by the
+ host adapter's BIOS to receive Windows 95 certification. Therefore, the
+ factory default settings of the BT-948/958/958D enumerate the host adapters
+ by increasing bus number and device number. To disable this feature, invoke
+ the AutoSCSI utility via Ctrl-B at system startup and select "Adapter
+ Configuration", "View/Modify Configuration", press Ctrl-F10, and then change
+ the "Use Bus And Device # For PCI Scanning Seq." option to OFF.
+
+ This driver will interrogate the setting of the PCI Scanning Sequence option
+ so as to recognize the host adapters in the same order as they are enumerated
+ by the host adapter's BIOS.
+
+o Enabling UltraSCSI Transfers
+
+ The BT-948/958/958D ship with their configuration set to "Factory Default"
+ settings that are conservative and do not allow for UltraSCSI speed to be
+ negotiated. This results in fewer problems when these host adapters are
+ installed in systems with cabling or termination that is not sufficient for
+ UltraSCSI operation, or where existing SCSI devices do not properly respond
+ to synchronous transfer negotiation for UltraSCSI speed. AutoSCSI may be
+ used to load "Optimum Performance" settings which allow UltraSCSI speed to be
+ negotiated with all devices, or UltraSCSI speed can be enabled on an
+ individual basis. It is recommended that SCAM be manually disabled after the
+ "Optimum Performance" settings are loaded.
+
+
+ DRIVER OPTIONS
+
+BusLogic Driver Options may be specified either via the Linux Kernel Command
+Line or via the Loadable Kernel Module Installation Facility. Driver Options
+for multiple host adapters may be specified either by separating the option
+strings by a semicolon, or by specifying multiple "BusLogic=" strings on the
+command line. Individual option specifications for a single host adapter are
+separated by commas. The Probing and Debugging Options apply to all host
+adapters whereas the remaining options apply individually only to the
+selected host adapter.
+
+The BusLogic Driver Probing Options comprise the following:
+
+IO:<integer>
+
+ The "IO:" option specifies an ISA I/O Address to be probed for a non-PCI
+ MultiMaster Host Adapter. If neither "IO:" nor "NoProbeISA" options are
+ specified, then the standard list of BusLogic MultiMaster ISA I/O Addresses
+ will be probed (0x330, 0x334, 0x230, 0x234, 0x130, and 0x134). Multiple
+ "IO:" options may be specified to precisely determine the I/O Addresses to
+ be probed, but the probe order will always follow the standard list.
+
+NoProbe
+
+ The "NoProbe" option disables all probing and therefore no BusLogic Host
+ Adapters will be detected.
+
+NoProbeISA
+
+ The "NoProbeISA" option disables probing of the standard BusLogic ISA I/O
+ Addresses and therefore only PCI MultiMaster and FlashPoint Host Adapters
+ will be detected.
+
+NoProbePCI
+
+ The "NoProbePCI" options disables the interrogation of PCI Configuration
+ Space and therefore only ISA Multimaster Host Adapters will be detected, as
+ well as PCI Multimaster Host Adapters that have their ISA Compatible I/O
+ Port set to "Primary" or "Alternate".
+
+NoSortPCI
+
+ The "NoSortPCI" option forces PCI MultiMaster Host Adapters to be
+ enumerated in the order provided by the PCI BIOS, ignoring any setting of
+ the AutoSCSI "Use Bus And Device # For PCI Scanning Seq." option.
+
+MultiMasterFirst
+
+ The "MultiMasterFirst" option forces MultiMaster Host Adapters to be probed
+ before FlashPoint Host Adapters. By default, if both FlashPoint and PCI
+ MultiMaster Host Adapters are present, this driver will probe for
+ FlashPoint Host Adapters first unless the BIOS primary disk is controlled
+ by the first PCI MultiMaster Host Adapter, in which case MultiMaster Host
+ Adapters will be probed first.
+
+FlashPointFirst
+
+ The "FlashPointFirst" option forces FlashPoint Host Adapters to be probed
+ before MultiMaster Host Adapters.
+
+The BusLogic Driver Tagged Queuing Options allow for explicitly specifying
+the Queue Depth and whether Tagged Queuing is permitted for each Target
+Device (assuming that the Target Device supports Tagged Queuing). The Queue
+Depth is the number of SCSI Commands that are allowed to be concurrently
+presented for execution (either to the Host Adapter or Target Device). Note
+that explicitly enabling Tagged Queuing may lead to problems; the option to
+enable or disable Tagged Queuing is provided primarily to allow disabling
+Tagged Queuing on Target Devices that do not implement it correctly. The
+following options are available:
+
+QueueDepth:<integer>
+
+ The "QueueDepth:" or QD:" option specifies the Queue Depth to use for all
+ Target Devices that support Tagged Queuing, as well as the maximum Queue
+ Depth for devices that do not support Tagged Queuing. If no Queue Depth
+ option is provided, the Queue Depth will be determined automatically based
+ on the Host Adapter's Total Queue Depth and the number, type, speed, and
+ capabilities of the detected Target Devices. For Host Adapters that
+ require ISA Bounce Buffers, the Queue Depth is automatically set by default
+ to BusLogic_TaggedQueueDepthBB or BusLogic_UntaggedQueueDepthBB to avoid
+ excessive preallocation of DMA Bounce Buffer memory. Target Devices that
+ do not support Tagged Queuing always have their Queue Depth set to
+ BusLogic_UntaggedQueueDepth or BusLogic_UntaggedQueueDepthBB, unless a
+ lower Queue Depth option is provided. A Queue Depth of 1 automatically
+ disables Tagged Queuing.
+
+QueueDepth:[<integer>,<integer>...]
+
+ The "QueueDepth:[...]" or "QD:[...]" option specifies the Queue Depth
+ individually for each Target Device. If an <integer> is omitted, the
+ associated Target Device will have its Queue Depth selected automatically.
+
+TaggedQueuing:Default
+
+ The "TaggedQueuing:Default" or "TQ:Default" option permits Tagged Queuing
+ based on the firmware version of the BusLogic Host Adapter and based on
+ whether the Queue Depth allows queuing multiple commands.
+
+TaggedQueuing:Enable
+
+ The "TaggedQueuing:Enable" or "TQ:Enable" option enables Tagged Queuing for
+ all Target Devices on this Host Adapter, overriding any limitation that
+ would otherwise be imposed based on the Host Adapter firmware version.
+
+TaggedQueuing:Disable
+
+ The "TaggedQueuing:Disable" or "TQ:Disable" option disables Tagged Queuing
+ for all Target Devices on this Host Adapter.
+
+TaggedQueuing:<Target-Spec>
+
+ The "TaggedQueuing:<Target-Spec>" or "TQ:<Target-Spec>" option controls
+ Tagged Queuing individually for each Target Device. <Target-Spec> is a
+ sequence of "Y", "N", and "X" characters. "Y" enables Tagged Queuing, "N"
+ disables Tagged Queuing, and "X" accepts the default based on the firmware
+ version. The first character refers to Target Device 0, the second to
+ Target Device 1, and so on; if the sequence of "Y", "N", and "X" characters
+ does not cover all the Target Devices, unspecified characters are assumed
+ to be "X".
+
+The BusLogic Driver Miscellaneous Options comprise the following:
+
+BusSettleTime:<seconds>
+
+ The "BusSettleTime:" or "BST:" option specifies the Bus Settle Time in
+ seconds. The Bus Settle Time is the amount of time to wait between a Host
+ Adapter Hard Reset which initiates a SCSI Bus Reset and issuing any SCSI
+ Commands. If unspecified, it defaults to BusLogic_DefaultBusSettleTime.
+
+InhibitTargetInquiry
+
+ The "InhibitTargetInquiry" option inhibits the execution of an Inquire
+ Target Devices or Inquire Installed Devices command on MultiMaster Host
+ Adapters. This may be necessary with some older Target Devices that do not
+ respond correctly when Logical Units above 0 are addressed.
+
+The BusLogic Driver Debugging Options comprise the following:
+
+TraceProbe
+
+ The "TraceProbe" option enables tracing of Host Adapter Probing.
+
+TraceHardwareReset
+
+ The "TraceHardwareReset" option enables tracing of Host Adapter Hardware
+ Reset.
+
+TraceConfiguration
+
+ The "TraceConfiguration" option enables tracing of Host Adapter
+ Configuration.
+
+TraceErrors
+
+ The "TraceErrors" option enables tracing of SCSI Commands that return an
+ error from the Target Device. The CDB and Sense Data will be printed for
+ each SCSI Command that fails.
+
+Debug
+
+ The "Debug" option enables all debugging options.
+
+The following examples demonstrate setting the Queue Depth for Target Devices
+1 and 2 on the first host adapter to 7 and 15, the Queue Depth for all Target
+Devices on the second host adapter to 31, and the Bus Settle Time on the
+second host adapter to 30 seconds.
+
+Linux Kernel Command Line:
+
+ linux BusLogic=QueueDepth:[,7,15];QueueDepth:31,BusSettleTime:30
+
+LILO Linux Boot Loader (in /etc/lilo.conf):
+
+ append = "BusLogic=QueueDepth:[,7,15];QueueDepth:31,BusSettleTime:30"
+
+INSMOD Loadable Kernel Module Installation Facility:
+
+ insmod BusLogic.o \
+ 'BusLogic="QueueDepth:[,7,15];QueueDepth:31,BusSettleTime:30"'
+
+NOTE: Module Utilities 2.1.71 or later is required for correct parsing
+ of driver options containing commas.
+
+
+ DRIVER INSTALLATION
+
+This distribution was prepared for Linux kernel version 2.0.35, but should be
+compatible with 2.0.4 or any later 2.0 series kernel.
+
+To install the new BusLogic SCSI driver, you may use the following commands,
+replacing "/usr/src" with wherever you keep your Linux kernel source tree:
+
+ cd /usr/src
+ tar -xvzf BusLogic-2.0.15.tar.gz
+ mv README.* LICENSE.* BusLogic.[ch] FlashPoint.c linux/drivers/scsi
+ patch -p0 < BusLogic.patch (only for 2.0.33 and below)
+ cd linux
+ make config
+ make zImage
+
+Then install "arch/x86/boot/zImage" as your standard kernel, run lilo if
+appropriate, and reboot.

+
+ * hosts.c, Makefile: Add eata_dma.
+
+ * README.st: Document MTEOM.
+
+ Patches from me (ERY) to finish support for low-level loadable scsi.
+ It now works, and is actually useful.
+
+ * Throughout - add new argument to scsi_init_malloc that takes an
+ additional parameter. This is used as a priority to kmalloc,
+ and you can specify the GFP_DMA flag if you need DMA-able memory.
+
+ * Makefile: For source files that are loadable, always add name
+ to SCSI_SRCS. Fill in modules: target.
+
+ * hosts.c: Change next_host to next_scsi_host, and make global.

+ Do not use waiting loops - use up and down mechanism as long
+ as current != task[0].
+
+ * scsi.c(scan_scsis): Do not use stack variables for I/O - this
+ could be > 16Mb if we are loading a module at runtime (i.e. use
+ scsi_init_malloc to get some memory we know will be safe).
+
+ * scsi.c: Change dma freelist to be a set of pages. This allows
+ us to dynamically adjust the size of the list by adding more pages
+ to the pagelist. Fix scsi_malloc and scsi_free accordingly.
+
+ * scsi_module.c: Fix include.
+
+ * sd.c: Declare detach function. Increment/decrement module usage
+ count as required. Fix init functions to allow loaded devices.

+
+ * buslogic.c: Set forbidden_addr stuff if using a buggy board.
+
+ * aha1740.c: Test for NULL pointer in SCtmp. This should not

+
+ * sd.c: Use device letters instead of sd%d in a lot of messages.
+
+ * seagate.c: Fix bug that resulted in lockups with some devices.
+

+
+
+Tue Jul 26 21:36:58 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.37 released.
+
+ * aha1542.c: Always call aha1542_mbenable, use new udelay
+ mechanism so we do not wait a long time if the board does not
+ implement this command.
+
+ * g_NCR5380.c: Remove #include <linux/config.h> and #if
+ defined(CONFIG_SCSI_*).
+
+ * seagate.c: Likewise.
+
+ Next round of changes to support loadable modules. Getting closer
+ now, still not possible to do anything remotely usable.
+
+ hosts.c: Create a linked list of detected high level devices.
+ (scsi_register_device): New function to insert into this list.
+ (scsi_init): Call scsi_register_device for each of the known high
+ level drivers.
+
+ hosts.h: Add prototype for linked list header. Add structure
+ definition for device template structure which defines the linked
+ list.
+
+ scsi.c: (scan_scsis): Use linked list instead of knowledge about
+ existing high level device drivers.
+ (scsi_dev_init): Use init functions for drivers on linked list
+ instead of explicit list to initialize and attach devices to high
+ level drivers.
+
+ scsi.h: Add new field "attached" to scsi_device - count of number
+ of high level devices attached.
+
+ sd.c, sr.c, sg.c, st.c: Adjust init/attach functions to use new
+ scheme.
+
+Sat Jul 23 13:03:17 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.35 released.
+
+ * ultrastor.c: Change constraint on asm() operand so that it works

+
+Thu Jul 14 10:51:42 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.29 released.
+
+ * scsi.c (scan_scsis): Add new devices to end of linked list, not
+ to the beginning.
+
+ * scsi.h (SCSI_SLEEP): Remove brain dead hack to try to save
+ the task state before sleeping.
+
+Sat Jul 9 15:01:03 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ More changes to eventually support loadable modules. Mainly
+ we want to use linked lists instead of arrays because it is easier
+ to dynamically add and remove things this way.
+
+ Quite a bit more work is needed before loadable modules are
+ possible (and usable) with scsi, but this is most of the grunge
+ work.
+
+ * Linux 1.1.28 released.
+
+ * scsi.c, scsi.h (allocate_device, request_queueable): Change
+ argument from index into scsi_devices to a pointer to the
+ Scsi_Device struct.
+
+ * Throughout: Change all calls to allocate_device,
+ request_queueable to use new calling sequence.
+
+ * Throughout: Use SCpnt->device instead of
+ scsi_devices[SCpnt->index]. Ugh - the pointer was there all along
+ - much cleaner this way.
+
+ * scsi.c (scsi_init_malloc, scsi_free_malloc): New functions -
+ allow us to pretend that we have a working malloc when we
+ initialize. Use this instead of passing memory_start, memory_end
+ around all over the place.
+
+ * scsi.h, st.c, sr.c, sd.c, sg.c: Change *_init1 functions to use
+ scsi_init_malloc, remove all arguments, no return value.
+
+ * scsi.h: Remove index field from Scsi_Device and Scsi_Cmnd
+ structs.
+
+ * scsi.c (scsi_dev_init): Set up for scsi_init_malloc.
+ (scan_scsis): Get SDpnt from scsi_init_malloc, and refresh
+ when we discover a device. Free pointer before returning.
+ Change scsi_devices into a linked list.
+
+ * scsi.c (scan_scsis): Change to only scan one host.
+ (scsi_dev_init): Loop over all detected hosts, and scan them.
+
+ * hosts.c (scsi_init_free): Change so that number of extra bytes
+ is stored in struct, and we do not have to pass it each time.
+
+ * hosts.h: Change Scsi_Host_Template struct to include "next" and
+ "release" functions. Initialize to NULL in all low level
+ adapters.
+
+ * hosts.c: Rename scsi_hosts to builtin_scsi_hosts, create linked
+ list scsi_hosts, linked together with the new "next" field.
+
+Wed Jul 6 05:45:02 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.25 released.
+
+ * aha152x.c: Changes from Juergen - cleanups and updates.
+
+ * sd.c, sr.c: Use new check_media_change and revalidate
+ file_operations fields.
+
+ * st.c, st.h: Add changes from Kai Makisara, dated Jun 22.
+
+ * hosts.h: Change SG_ALL back to 0xff. Apparently soft error
+ in /dev/brain resulted in having this bumped up.
+ Change first parameter in bios_param function to be Disk * instead
+ of index into rscsi_disks.
+
+ * sd_ioctl.c: Pass pointer to rscsi_disks element instead of index
+ to array.
+
+ * sd.h: Add struct name "scsi_disk" to typedef for Scsi_Disk.
+
+ * scsi.c: Remove redundant Maxtor XT8760S from blacklist.
+ In scsi_reset, add printk when DEBUG defined.
+
+ * All low level drivers: Modify definitions of bios_param in
+ appropriate way.
+
+Thu Jun 16 10:31:59 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.20 released.
+
+ * scsi_ioctl.c: Only pass down the actual number of characters
+ required to scsi_do_cmd, not the one rounded up to a even number
+ of sectors.
+
+ * ultrastor.c: Changes from Caleb Epstein for 24f cards. Support
+ larger SG lists.
+
+ * ultrastor.c: Changes from me - use scsi_register to register
+ host. Add some consistency checking,
+
+Wed Jun 1 21:12:13 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.19 released.
+
+ * scsi.h: Add new return code for reset() function:
+ SCSI_RESET_PUNT.
+
+ * scsi.c: Make SCSI_RESET_PUNT the same as SCSI_RESET_WAKEUP for
+ now.
+
+ * aha1542.c: If the command responsible for the reset is not
+ pending, return SCSI_RESET_PUNT.
+
+ * aha1740.c, buslogic.c, wd7000.c, ultrastor.c: Return
+ SCSI_RESET_PUNT instead of SCSI_RESET_SNOOZE.
+
+Tue May 31 19:36:01 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * buslogic.c: Do not print out message about "must be Adaptec"
+ if we have detected a buslogic card. Print out a warning message
+ if we are configuring for >16Mb, since the 445S at board level
+ D or earlier does not work right. The "D" level board can be made
+ to work by flipping an undocumented switch, but this is too subtle.
+
+ Changes based upon patches in Yggdrasil distribution.
+
+ * sg.c, sg.h: Return sense data to user.
+
+ * aha1542.c, aha1740.c, buslogic.c: Do not panic if
+ sense buffer is wrong size.
+
+ * hosts.c: Test for ultrastor card before any of the others.
+
+ * scsi.c: Allow boot-time option for max_scsi_luns=? so that
+ buggy firmware has an easy work-around.
+
+Sun May 15 20:24:34 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
+
+ * Linux 1.1.15 released.
+
+ Post-codefreeze thaw...
+
+ * buslogic.[c,h]: New driver from David Gentzel.
+
+ * hosts.h: Add use_clustering field to explicitly say whether
+ clustering should be used for devices attached to this host
+ adapter. The buslogic board apparently supports large SG lists,
+ but it is apparently faster if sd.c condenses this into a smaller
+ list.
+
+ * sd.c: Use this field instead of heuristic.
+
+ * All host adapter include files: Add appropriate initializer for
+ use_clustering field.
+
+ * scsi.h: Add #defines for return codes for the abort and reset
+ functions. There are now a specific set of return codes to fully
+ specify all of the possible things that the low-level adapter
+ could do.
+
+ * scsi.c: Act based upon return codes from abort/reset functions.
+
+ * All host adapter abort/reset functions: Return new return code.
+
+ * Add code in scsi.c to help debug timeouts. Use #define
+ DEBUG_TIMEOUT to enable this.
+
+ * scsi.c: If the host->irq field is set, use
+ disable_irq/enable_irq before calling queuecommand if we
+ are not already in an interrupt. Reduce races, and we
+ can be sloppier about cli/sti in the interrupt routines now
+ (reduce interrupt latency).
+
+ * constants.c: Fix some things to eliminate warnings. Add some
+ sense descriptions that were omitted before.
+
+ * aha1542.c: Watch for SCRD from host adapter - if we see it, set
+ a flag. Currently we only print out the number of pending
+ commands that might need to be restarted.
+
+ * aha1542.c (aha1542_abort): Look for lost interrupts, OGMB still
+ full, and attempt to recover. Otherwise give up.
+
+ * aha1542.c (aha1542_reset): Try BUS DEVICE RESET, and then pass
+ DID_RESET back up to the upper level code for all commands running
+ on this target (even on different LUNs).
+
+Sat May 7 14:54:01 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1.12 released.
+
+ * st.c, st.h: New version from Kai. Supports boot time
+ specification of number of buffers.
+
+ * wd7000.[c,h]: Updated driver from John Boyd. Now supports
+ more than one wd7000 board in machine at one time, among other things.
+
+Wed Apr 20 22:20:35 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1.8 released.
+
+ * sd.c: Add a few type casts where scsi_malloc is called.
+
+Wed Apr 13 12:53:29 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1.4 released.
+
+ * scsi.c: Clean up a few printks (use %p to print pointers).
+
+Wed Apr 13 11:33:02 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1.3 released.
+
+ * fdomain.c: Update to version 5.16 (Handle different FIFO sizes
+ better).
+
+Fri Apr 8 08:57:19 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1.2 released.
+
+ * Throughout: SCSI portion of cluster diffs added.
+
+Tue Apr 5 07:41:50 1994
+
+ * Linux 1.1 development tree initiated.
+
+ * The linux 1.0 development tree is now effectively frozen except
+ for obvious bugfixes.

+ * seagate.c: Use volatile keyword for memory-mapped register pointers.
+
+ * sr.c: Fix race condition, a la sd.c. Increase the number of retries

+ another command unless we are on the outer level. Fixes bug
+ with Syquest cartridge drives (used to crash kernel), because
+ they do not disconnect with large data transfers.
+
+Tue Jan 12 14:33:36 1993

+
+Wed Dec 30 20:03:47 1992
+
+ * 0.99pl2 released.
+
+ * scsi.c: Blacklist back in. Remove Newbury drive as other bugfix

+
+ * sr.c: Same as above for sd.c.
+
+ * st.c: Return ENODEV instead of ENXIO if no device. Init chrdev_fops
+ sooner, so that it is always there even if no tapes.
+
+ * seagate.c (controller_type): New variable to keep track of ST0x or
+ FD. Modify signatures list to indicate controller type, and init
+ controller_type once we find a match.
+
+ * wd7000.c (wd7000_set_sync): Remove redundant function.
+
+Sun Dec 20 16:26:24 1992

+Known issues :
+ * Please read the associated RELEASE-NOTES file !!!
+ * This source release intended for upstream kernel releases only!
+
+Changes from 20050323 to 20050413
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.28
+ * Fixed build warning for 2.6.12-rc2 kernels: mempool_alloc now
+ requires a function which takes an unsigned int for gfp_flags.
+ * Removed pci dma sync calls to coherent/consistent pci memory.
+ * Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>: split helpers
+ for fabric and nport logins out of lpfc_cmpl_els_flogi.
+ * Removed sysfs attributes that are used to dump the various
+ discovery lists.
+ * Fix for issue where not all luns are seen. Search all lists
+ other than unmap list in lpfc_find_target(). Otherwise INQUIRY
+ to luns on nodes in NPR or other relevant states (PLOGI,
+ PRLI...) are errored back and scan() terminates.
+ * Removed FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHESxxx defines. They're in 2.6.12-rc1.
+ * Compare return value of lpfc_scsi_tgt_reset against SCSI
+ midlayer codes SUCCESS/FAILED which that function returns rather
+ than SLI return code.
+ * Removed extraneous calls to lpfc_sli_next_iotag which should
+ only be called from lpfc_sli_submit_iocb. Also make
+ lpfc_sli_next_iotag static.
+ * Added PCI ID for LP10000-S.
+ * Changes in lpfc_abort_handler(): Return SUCCESS if we did not
+ find command in both TX and TX completion queues. Return ERROR
+ if we timed out waiting for command to complete after abort was
+ issued.
+ * Zero-out response sense length in lpfc_scsi_prep_cmnd to prevent
+ interpretation of stale sense length when the command completes
+ - was causing spurious 0710 messages.
+ * Moved clearing of host_scribble inside host_lock in IO
+ completion path.
+ * Fixed a bunch of mixed tab/space indentation.
+ * Allow hex format numbers in sysfs attribute setting. Fix
+ application hang when invalid numbers are used in sysfs
+ settings.
+ * Removed extra iotag allocation by lpfc_abort_handler.
+ * Clear host_scribble in the scsi_cmnd structure when failing in
+ queuecommand.
+ * Changed logic at top of lpfc_abort_handler so that if the
+ command's host_scibble field is NULL, return SUCCESS because the
+ driver has already returned the command to the midlayer.
+
+Changes from 20050308 to 20050323
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.27
+ * Changed a few lines from patch submitted by Christoph Hellwig
+ (3/19). MAILBOX_WSIZE * (uint32_t) is replaced with an
+ equivalent MAILBOX_CMDSIZE macro.
+ * Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (3/19): some misc patches
+ against the latest drivers:
+ - stop using volatile. if you need special ordering use memory
+ barriers but that doesn't seem to be the case here
+ - switch lpfc_sli_pcimem_bcopy to take void * arguments.
+ - remove typecast for constants - a U postfix marks them
+ unsigned int in C
+ - add a MAILBOX_CMD_SIZE macro, as most users of
+ MAILBOX_CMD_WSIZE didn't really want the word count
+ - kill struct lpfc_scsi_dma_buf and embedded the two members
+ directly in struct lpfc_scsi_buf
+ - don't call dma_sync function on allocations from
+ pci_pool_alloc - it's only for streaming mappings (pci_map_*)
+ * Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (3/19) - nlp_failMask isn't
+ ever used by the driver, just reported to userspace (and that in
+ a multi-value file which is against the sysfs guidelines).
+ * Change pci_module_init to pci_register_module() with appropriate
+ ifdefs.
+ * Added #include <linux/dma-mapping.h> as required by the DMA
+ 32bit and 64bit defines on some archs.
+ * Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (03/19) - fix initialization
+ order - scsi_add_host must happen last from scsi POV. Also some
+ minor style/comment fixups.
+ * Fixed use of TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 by changing to
+ FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2.
+
+Changes from 20050223 to 20050308
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.26
+ * Revise TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 so that lpfc_target is removed and
+ rport data is used instead. Removed device_queue_hash[].
+ * Changed RW attributes of scan_down, max_luns and fcp_bind_method
+ to R only.
+ * Fixed RSCN handling during initial link initialization.
+ * Fixed issue with receiving PLOGI handling when node is on NPR
+ list and marked for ADISC.
+ * Fixed RSCN timeout issues.
+ * Reduced severity of "SCSI layer issued abort device" message to
+ KERN_WARNING.
+ * Feedback from Christoph Hellwig (on 2/5) - In the LPFC_EVT_SCAN
+ case the caller already has the target ID handly, so pass that
+ one in evt_arg1.
+ * Fix compile warning/resultant panic in
+ lpfc_register_remote_port().
+
+Changes from 20050215 to 20050223
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.25
+ * Add appropriate comments to lpfc_sli.c.
+ * Use DMA_64BIT_MASK and DMA_32BIT_MASK defines instead of
+ 0xffffffffffffffffULL & 0xffffffffULL respectively. Use pci
+ equivalents instead of dma_set_mask and also modify condition
+ clause to actually exit on error condition.
+ * Restart els timeout handler only if txcmplq_cnt. On submission,
+ mod_timer the els_tmofunc. This prevents the worker thread from
+ waking up the els_tmo handler un-necessarily. The thread was
+ being woken up even when there were no pending els commands.
+ * Added new typedefs for abort and reset functions.
+ * Collapsed lpfc_sli_abort_iocb_xxx into a single function.
+ * Collapsed lpfc_sli_sum_iocb_xxx into a single function.
+ * Removed TXQ from all abort and reset handlers since it is never
+ used.
+ * Fixed Oops panic in 8.0.23 (reported on SourceForge). The
+ driver was not handling LPFC_IO_POLL cases correctly in
+ fast_ring_event and was setting the tgt_reset timeout to 0 in
+ lpfc_reset_bus_handler. This 0 timeout would not allow the FW
+ to timeout ABTS's on bad targets and allow the driver to have an
+ iocb on two lists. Also split the lpfc_sli_ringtxcmpl_get
+ function into two routines to match the fast and slow completion
+ semantics - ELS completions worked for the wrong reasons. Also
+ provided new log message number - had two 0326 entries.
+ * Removed unused #define LPFC_SCSI_INITIAL_BPL_SIZE.
+ * Removed unused struct lpfc_node_farp_pend definition.
+ * Removed unused #define LPFC_SLIM2_PAGE_AREA.
+ * Changed zeros used as pointers to NULL.
+ * Removed unneeded braces around single line in lpfc_do_work.
+ * Close humongous memory leak in lpfc_sli.c - driver was losing 13
+ iocbq structures per LIP.
+ * Removed last of GFP_ATOMIC allocations.
+ * Locks are not taken outside of nportdisc, hbadisc, els and most
+ of the init, sli, mbox and ct groups of functions
+ * Fix comment for lpfc_sli_iocb_cmd_type to fit within 80 columns.
+ * Replaced wait_event() with wait_event_interruptible().
+ wait_event() puts the woker thread in an UNINTERRUPTIBLE state
+ causing it to figure in load average calculations. Also add a
+ BUG_ON to the ret code of wait_event_interruptible() since the
+ premise is that the worker thread is signal-immune.
+
+Changes from 20050208 to 20050215
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.24
+ * Fixed a memory leak of iocbq structure. For ELS solicited iocbs
+ sli layer now frees the response iocbs after processing it.
+ * Closed large memory leak -- we were losing 13 iocbq structures
+ per LIP.
+ * Changing EIO and ENOMEM to -EIO and -ENOMEM respectively.
+ * Cleanup of lpfc_sli_iocb_cmd_type array and typing of iocb type.
+ * Implemented Christoph Hellwig's feedback from 02/05: Remove
+ macros putLunHigh, putLunLow. Use lpfc_put_lun() inline instead.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's feedback from 02/05: Instead of
+ cpu_to_be32(), use swab16((uint16_t)lun). This is the same as
+ "swab16() on LE" and "<<16 on BE".
+ * Added updates for revised FC remote port patch (dev_loss_tmo
+ moved to rport, hostdata renamed dd_data, add fc_remote_host()
+ on shutdown).
+ * Removed unnecessary function prototype.
+ * Added code to prevent waking up worker thread after the exit of
+ worker thread. Fixes panic seen with insmod/rmmod testing with
+ 70 disks.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Make some
+ variables/code static (namely lpfcAlpaArray and
+ process_nodev_timeout()).
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Use
+ switch...case instead of if...else if...else if while decoding
+ JDEC id.
+
+Changes from 20050201 to 20050208
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.23
+ * Make lpfc_work_done, lpfc_get_scsi_buf,
+ lpfc_mbx_process_link_up, lpfc_mbx_issue_link_down and
+ lpfc_sli_chipset_init static.
+ * Cleaned up references to list_head->next field in the driver.
+ * Replaced lpfc_discq_post_event with lpfc_workq_post_event.
+ * Implmented Christoph Hellwig's review from 2/5: Check for return
+ values of kmalloc.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Protecting
+ scan_tmo and friends in !FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 &&
+ !USE_SCAN_TARGET.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Some fixes in
+ the evt handling area.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Remove usage of
+ intr_inited variable. The interrupt initilization from OS side
+ now happens in lpfc_probe_one().
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: remove shim
+ lpfc_alloc_transport_attr - remove shim lpfc_alloc_shost_attrs -
+ remove shim lpfc_scsi_host_init - allocate phba mem in scsi's
+ hostdata readjust code so that they are no use after free's
+ (don't use after scsi_host_put) - make lpfc_alloc_sysfs_attr
+ return errors
+ * Fixed panic in lpfc_probe_one(). Do not delete in a list
+ iterator that is not safe.
+ * Clean up fast lookup array of the fcp_ring when aborting iocbs.
+ * Following timeout handlers moved to the lpfc worker thread:
+ lpfc_disc_timeout, lpfc_els_timeout, lpfc_mbox, lpfc_fdmi_tmo,
+ lpfc_nodev_timeout, lpfc_els_retry_delay.
+ * Removed unused NLP_NS_NODE #define.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: remove unused
+ lpfc_hba_list; remove unused lpfc_rdrev_wd30; remove
+ lpfc_get_brd_no and use Linux provided IDR.
+ * Changed board reset procedure so that lpfc_sli_send_reset()
+ writes the INITFF bit and leaves lpfc_sli_brdreset() to clear
+ the bit.
+ * Removed outfcpio sysfs device attribute.
+ * VPD changes: 1) Modify driver to use the model name and
+ description from the VPD data if it exists 2) Rework use of DUMP
+ mailbox command to support HBAs with 256 bytes of SLIM.
+ * Fixed compile error for implicit definition of struct
+ scsi_target
+
+Changes from 20050124 to 20050201
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.22
+ * Moved discovery timeout handler to worker thread. There are
+ function calls in this function which are not safe to call from
+ HW interrupt context.
+ * Removed free_irq from the error path of HBA initialization.
+ This will fix the free of uninitialised IRQ when config_port
+ fails.
+ * Make sure function which processes unsolicited IOCBs on ELS ring
+ still is called with the lock held.
+ * Clear LA bit from work_ha when we are not supposed to handle LA.
+ * Fix double locking bug in the error handling part of
+ lpfc_mbx_cmpl_read_la.
+ * Implemented fast IOCB processing for FCP ring.
+ * Since mboxes are now unconditionally allocated outside of the
+ lock, free them in cases where they are not used.
+ * Moved out a couple of GFP_ATOMICs in lpfc_disc_timeout, to
+ before locks so that they can GFP_KERNEL instead. Also cleaned
+ up code.
+ * Collapsed interrupt handling code into one function.
+ * Removed event posting and handling of solicited and unsolicited
+ iocbs.
+ * Remove ELS ring handling leftovers from the lpfc_sli_inter().
+ * ELS ring (any slow ring) moved from the lpfc_sli_inter() into a
+ worker thread. Link Attention, Mbox Attention, and Error
+ Attention, as well as slow rings' attention is passed to the
+ worker thread via worker thread copy of Host Attention
+ register. Corresponding events are removed from the event queue
+ handling.
+ * Add entries to hba structure to delegate some functionality from
+ the lpfc_sli_inter() to a worker thread.
+ * Reduced used of GFP_ATOMIC for memory allocations.
+ * Moved locks deeper in order to change GFP_ATOMIC to GFP_KERNEL.
+ * IOCB initialization fix for Raw IO.
+ * Removed qcmdcnt, iodonecnt, errcnt from lpfc_target and from
+ driver.
+ * Added call to lpfc_els_abort in lpfc_free_node. Modified
+ lpfc_els_abort to reset txq and txcmplq iterator after a
+ iocb_cmpl call.
+ * Fixed a use after free issue in lpfc_init.c.
+ * Defined default mailbox completion routine and removed code in
+ the sli layer which checks the mbox_cmpl == 0 to free mail box
+ resources.
+ * In lpfc_workq_post_event, clean up comment formatting and remove
+ unneeded cast of kmalloc's return.
+ * Removed loop which calls fc_remote_port_unblock and
+ fc_remote_port_delete for every target as this same effect is
+ accomplished by the scsi_remove_host call.
+ * Minor cleanup of header files. Stop header files including
+ other header files. Removed sentinels which hide multiple
+ inclusions. Removed unneeded #include directives.
+ * Fixed memory leaks in mailbox error paths.
+ * Moved lock from around of lpfc_work_done to lpfc_work_done
+ itself.
+ * Removed typedef for LPFC_WORK_EVT_t and left just struct
+ lpfc_work_evt to comply with linux_scsi review coding style.
+ * Fixed some trailing whitespaces, spaces used for indentation and
+ ill-formatting multiline comments.
+ * Bug fix for Raw IO errors. Reuse of IOCBs now mandates setting
+ of ulpPU and fcpi_parm to avoid incorrect read check of Write IO
+ and incorrect read length.
+
+Changes from 20050110 to 20050124
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.21
+ * Removed unpleasant casting in the definition and use of
+ lpfc_disc_action function pointer array.
+ * Makefile cleanup. Use ?= operator for setting default
+ KERNELVERSION and BASEINCLUDE values. Use $(PWD) consistently.
+ * Removed call to lpfc_sli_intr from lpfc_config_port_post. All
+ Linux systems will service hardware interrupts while bringing up
+ the driver.
+ * Christoph Hellwig change request: Reorg of contents of
+ lpfc_hbadisc.c, lpfc_scsi.h, lpfc_init.c, lpfc_sli.c,
+ lpfc_attr.c, lpfc_scsi.c.
+ * Renamed discovery thread to lpfc_worker thread. Moved handling
+ of error attention and link attention and mbox event handler to
+ lpfc_worker thread.
+ * Removed .proc_info and .proc_name from the driver template and
+ associated code.
+ * Removed check of FC_UNLOADING flag in lpfc_queuecommand to
+ determine what result to return.
+ * Move modification of FC_UNLOADING flag under host_lock.
+ * Fix IOERR_RCV_BUFFER_WAITING handling for CT and ELS subsystem.
+ * Workaround firmware bug for IOERR_RCV_BUFFER_WAITING on ELS
+ ring.
+ * Fixed a couple lpfc_post_buffer problems in lpfc_init.c.
+ * Add missing spaces to the parameter descriptions for
+ lpfc_cr_delay, lpfc_cr_count and lpfc_discovery_threads.
+ * Lock before calling lpfc_sli_hba_down().
+ * Fix leak of "host" in the error path in the remove_one() path.
+ * Fix comment for lpfc_cr_count. It defaults to 1.
+ * Fix issue where we are calling lpfc_disc_done() recursively from
+ lpfc_linkdown(), but list_for_each_entry_safe() is not safe for
+ such use.
+ * Bump lpfc_discovery_threads (count of outstading ELS commands in
+ discovery) to 32
+ * If the SCSI midlayer tries to recover from an error on a lun
+ while the corresponding target is in the NPR state, lpfc driver
+ will reject all the resets. This will cause the target to be
+ moved to offline state and block all the I/Os. The fix for this
+ is to delay the lun reset to a target which is not in MAPPED
+ state until the target is rediscovered or nodev timeout is
+ fired.
+
+Changes from 20041229 to 20050110
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.20
+ * rport fix: use new fc_remote_port_rolechg() function instead of
+ direct structure change
+ * rport fix: last null pointer check
+ * Phase II of GFP_ATOMIC effort. Replaced iocb_mem_pool and
+ scsibuf_mem_pool with kmalloc and linked list. Inserted list
+ operations for mempool_alloc calls. General code cleanup. All
+ abort and reset routines converted. Handle_ring_event
+ converted.
+ * If the mbox_cmpl == lpfc_sli_wake_mbox_wait in
+ lpfc_sli_handle_mb_event, pmb->context1 points to a waitq. Do
+ not free the structure.
+ * rport fixes: fix for rmmod crash
+ * rport fixes: when receiving PRLI's, set node/rport role values
+ * rport fixes: fix for unload and for fabric port deletes
+ * VPD info bug fix.
+ * lpfc_linkdown() should be able to process all outstanding events
+ by calling lpfc_disc_done() even if it is called from
+ lpfc_disc_done() Moving all events from phba->dpc_disc to local
+ local_dpc_disc prevents those events from being processed.
+ Removing that queue. From now on we should not see "Illegal
+ State Transition" messages.
+ * Release host lock and enable interrupts when calling
+ del_timer_sync()
+ * All related to rports: Clean up issues with rport deletion
+ Convert to using block/unblock on list remove (was del/add)
+ Moved rport delete to freenode - so rport tracks node.
+ * rport fixes: for fport, get maxframe and class support
+ information
+ * Added use of wait_event to work with kthread interface.
+ * Ensure that scsi_transport_fc.h is always pulled in by
+ lpfc_scsiport.c
+ * In remote port changes: no longer nulling target->pnode when
+ removing from mapped list. Pnode get nulled when the node is
+ freed (after nodev tmo). This bug was causing i/o received in
+ the small window while the device was blocked to be errored w/
+ did_no_connect. With the fix, it returns host_busy
+ (per the pre-remote port changes).
+ * Merge in support for fc transport remote port use. This removes
+ any consistent bindings within the driver. All scanning is now
+ on a per-target basis driven by the discovery engine.
+
+Changes from 20041220 to 20041229
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.19
+ * Fixed bug for handling RSCN type 3. Terminate RSCN mode
+ properly after ADISC handling completes.
+ * Add list_remove_head macro. Macro cleans up memory allocation
+ list handling. Also clean up lpfc_reset_bus_handler - routine
+ does not need to allocate its own scsi_cmnd and scsi_device
+ structures.
+ * Fixed potential discovery bug, nlp list corrutpion fix potential
+ memory leak
+ * Part 1 of the memory allocation rework request by linux-scsi.
+ This effort fixes the number of bdes per scsi_buf to 64, makes
+ the scatter-gather count a module parameter, builds a linked
+ list of scsi_bufs, and removes all dependencies on lpfc_mem.h.
+ * Reverted lpfc_do_dpc, probe_one, remove_one to original
+ implementation. Too many problems (driver not completing
+ initial discovery, and IO not starting to disks). Backs out
+ kthread patch.
+ * Fix race condition in lpfc_do_dpc. If wake_up interrupt occurs
+ while lpfc_do_dpc is running disc_done and the dpc list is
+ empty, the latest insertion is missed and the schedule_timeout
+ does not wakeup. The sleep interval is MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT
+ defined as ~0UL >> 1, a very large number. Hacked it to 5*HZ
+ for now.
+ * Fixed bug introduced when discovery thread implementation was
+ moved to kthread. kthread_stop() is not able to wake up thread
+ waiting on a semaphore and "modprobe -r lpfc" is not always
+ (most of the times) able to complete. Fix is in not using
+ semaphore for the interruptable sleep.
+ * Small Makefile cleanup - Remove remnants of 2.4 vs. 2.6
+ determination.
+
+Changes from 20041213 to 20041220
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.18
+ * Janitorial cleanup after removal of sliinit and ringinit[] ring
+ statistic is owned by the ring and SLI stats are in sli
+ structure.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Kill
+ compile warnings on 64 bit platforms: %variables for %llx format
+ specifiers must be caste to long long because %(u)int64_t can
+ just be long on 64bit platforms.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Removes
+ dead code.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>: use
+ kthread interface.
+ * Print LPFC_MODULE_DESC banner in module init routine.
+ * Removed sliinit structure and ringinit[] array.
+ * Changed log message number from 324 to 326 in lpfc_sli.c.
+ * Wait longer for commands to complete in lpfc_reset_bus_handler
+ and lpfc_reset_bus_handler. Also use schedule_timeout() instead
+ of msleep() and add error message in lpfc_abort_handler()
+ * When setting lpfc_nodev_tmo, from dev_loss set routine, make 1
+ sec minimum value.
+ * Functions which assume lock being held were called without lock
+ and kernel complained about unlocking lock which is not locked.
+ * Added code in linkdown to unreg if we know login session will be
+ terminated.
+ * Removed automap config parameter and fixed up use_adisc logic to
+ include FCP2 devices.
+
+Changes from 20041207 to 20041213
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.17
+ * Fix sparse warnings by adding __iomem markers to lpfc_compat.h.
+ * Fix some sparse warnings -- 0 used as NULL pointer.
+ * Make sure there's a space between every if and it's (.
+ * Fix some overly long lines and make sure hard tabs are used for
+ indentation.
+ * Remove all trailing whitespace.
+ * Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: if
+ pci_module_init fails we need to release the transport template.
+ (also don't print the driver name at startup, linux drivers can
+ be loaded without hardware present, and noise in the log for
+ that case is considered unpolite, better print messages only for
+ hardware actually found).
+ * Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: Add missing
+ __iomem annotations, remove broken casts, mark functions static.
+ Only major changes is chaning of some offsets from word-based to
+ byte-based so we cans simply do void pointer arithmetics (gcc
+ extension) instead of casting to uint32_t.
+ * Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: flag is always
+ LPFC_SLI_ABORT_IMED, aka 0 - remove dead code.
+ * Modified preprocessor #ifdef, #if, #ifndef to reflect upstream
+ kernel submission. Clean build with make clean;make and make
+ clean;make ADVANCED=1 on SMP x86, 2.6.10-rc2 on RHEL 4 Beta
+ 1. IO with a few lips and a long cable pull behaved accordingly.
+ * Implement full VPD support.
+ * Abort handler will try to wait for abort completion before
+ returning. Fixes some panics in iocb completion code path.
+
+Changes from 20041130 to 20041207
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.16
+ * Hung dt session fix. When the midlayer calls to abort a scsi
+ command, make sure the driver does not complete post-abort
+ handler. Just NULL the iocb_cmpl callback handler and let SLI
+ take over.
+ * Add Read check that uses SLI option to validate all READ data
+ actually received.
+
+
+Changes from 20041123 to 20041130
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.15
+ * Ifdef'd unused "binary" attributes by DFC_DEBUG for clean
+ compiles
+ * Stop DID_ERROR from showing up along with QUEUE_FULL set by the
+ Clarion array (SCSI error ret. val. 0x70028) There is no need
+ for driver to hard fail command which was failed by the target
+ device.
+ * Fix for Scsi device scan bug reported on SourceForge. Driver
+ was returning a DID_ERROR in lpfc_handle_fcp_error causing
+ midlayer to mark report luns as failing even though it
+ succeeded.
+ * Don't ignore SCSI status on underrun conditions for inquiries,
+ test unit ready's, etc. This was causing us to lose
+ reservation conflicts, etc
+
+Changes from 20041018 to 20041123
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.14
+ * Added new function "iterator" lpfc_sli_next_iocb_slot() which
+ returns pointer to iocb entry at cmdidx if queue is not full.
+ It also updates next_cmdidx, and local_getidx (but not cmdidx)
+ * lpfc_sli_submit_iocb() copies next_cmdidx into cmdidx. Now it is
+ the only place were we are updating cmdidx.
+ * lpfc_sli_update_ring() is split in to two --
+ lpfc_sli_update_ring() and lpfc_sli_update_full_ring().
+ * lpfc_sli_update_ring() don't to read back correct value of
+ cmdidx.
+ * Simplified lpfc_sli_resume_iocb() and its use.
+ * New static function lpfc_sli_next_iocb(phba, pring, &piocb) to
+ iterate through commands in the TX queue and new command (at the
+ end).
+ * Reduced max_lun to 256 (due to issues reported to some arrays).
+ Fixed comment, and macro values so def=256, min=1, max=32768.
+ * Fix an obvious typo/bug: kfree was used to free lpfc_scsi_buf
+ instead of mempool_free in lpfc_scsiport.c.
+ * Suppress nodev_tmo message for FABRIC nodes.
+ * Fixed some usage of plain integer as NULL pointer.
+ * Bug fix for FLOGI cmpl, lpfc_els_chk_latt error path code
+ cleanup.
+ * Fixup lpfc_els_chk_latt() to have Fabric NPorts go thru
+ discovery state machine as well.
+ * Fixes to lpfc_els_chk_latt().
+ * Use DID not SCSI target id as a port_id and add some missing
+ locks in lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Changed eh_abort_handler to return FAILED if command is not
+ found in driver.
+ * Fix crash: paging request at virtual address 0000000000100108 -
+ a result of removing from the txcmpl list item which was already
+ removed (100100 is a LIST_POISON1 value from the next pointer
+ and 8 is an offset of the "prev") Driver runs out of iotags and
+ does not handle that case well. The root of the proble is in the
+ initialization code in lpfc_sli.c
+ * Changes to work with proposed linux kernel patch to support
+ hotplug.
+ * Zero out seg_cnt in prep_io failure path to prevent double sg
+ unmap calls.
+ * Fix setting of upper 32 bits for Host Group Ring Pointers if in
+ SLIM. Old code was inappropriately masking off low order bits.
+ * Use scsi_[activate|deactivate]_tcq calls provided in scsi_tcq.h.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@lst.de): don't call
+ pci_dma_sync_* on coherent memory. pci_dma_sync_* is need and
+ must be used only with streaming dma mappings pci_map_*, not
+ coherent mappings. Note: There are more consistent mappings
+ that are using pci_dma_sync calls. Probably these should be
+ removed as well.
+ * Modified lpfc_free_scsi_buf to accommodate all three scsi_buf
+ free types to alleviate miscellaneous panics with cable pull
+ testing.
+ * Set hotplug to default 0 and lpfc_target_remove to not remove
+ devices unless hotplug is enabled.
+ * Fixed discovery bug: plogi cmpl uses ndlp after its freed.
+ * Fixed discovery bug: rnid acc cmpl, can potentially use ndlp
+ after its freed.
+ * Modularize code path in lpfc_target_remove().
+ * Changes to support SCSI hotplug (ifdef'ed out because they need
+ kernel support USE_SCAN_TARGET requires kernel support to export
+ the interface to scsi_scan_target and to move the SCAN_WILD_CARD
+ define to a general scsi header file. USE_RESCAN_HOST requires
+ kernel support to export an interface to scan_scsi_host() with
+ the rescan flag turned on).
+ * Removed redundant variable declaration of lpfc_linkdown_tmo.
+ * Fix for large port count remove test.
+ * Added check to see if BAR1 register is valid before using BAR1
+ register for programming config_port mail box command.
+ * Added lpfc_scsi_hotplug to enable/disable driver support of SCSI
+ hotplug.
+ * Changed lpfc_disc_neverdev() to lpfc_disc_illegal() and changed
+ lpfc_disc_nodev() to lpfc_disc_noop(). Adjusted appropriate
+ events to use these routines.
+ * Add support for SCSI device hotplug.
+ * Take dummy lpfc_target's into account for lpfc_slave_destroy().
+ * Bug fix to store WWPN / WWNN in NameServer / FDMI lpfc_nodelist
+ entries.
+ * Added slavecnt in lpfc_target for diagnostic purposes.
+ * Added lpfc_hba load/unload flags to take care of special cases
+ for add/remove device.
+ * Have target add/remove delay before scanning.
+ * Have rmmod path cleanup blocked devices before scsi_remove_host.
+ * Added a #define for msleep for 2.6.5 kernels.
+ * In reset bus handler if memory allocation fails, return FAILED
+ and not SUCCESS.
+ * Have lpfc eh handlers, bus_reset and lun_reset, wait for all
+ associated I/Os to complete before returning.
+ * Fix memset byte count in lpfc_hba_init so that
+ LP1050 would initialize correctly.
+ * Backround nodev_timeout processing to DPC This enables us to
+ unblock (stop dev_loss_tmo) when appopriate.
+ * Fix array discovery with multiple luns. The max_luns was 0 at
+ the time the host structure was initialized. lpfc_cfg_params
+ then set the max_luns to the correct value afterwards.
+ * Remove unused define LPFC_MAX_LUN and set the default value of
+ lpfc_max_lun parameter to 512.
+ * Reduced stack usage of lpfc_hba_init.
+ * Cleaned up the following warning generated by
+ scripts/checkincludes.pl lpfc_fcp.c: scsi/scsi_cmnd.h is
+ included more than once.
+ * Replaced "set_current_state(TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE);
+ schedule_timeout(timeout)" with "msleep(timeout)".
+ * Fixnode was losing starget when rediscovered. We saw messages
+ like: lpfc 0000:04:02.0: 0:0263 Cannot block scsi target as a
+ result. Moved starget field into struct lpfc_target which is
+ referenced from the node.
+ * Add additional SLI layer logging in lpfc_sli.c.
+ * Ignore more unexpected completions in lpfc_nportdisc.c.
+ * Can not call lpfc_target_unblock from the soft interrupt
+ context. It seems to be not nessasery to unblock target from
+ nodev timeout.
+ * Introduce and use less lethal event handler for unexpected
+ events in lpfc_nportdisc.c.
+ * Can not call fc_target_(un)block() functions with interrupts
+ disabled in lpfc_scsiport.c.
+ * Added new configuration parameter, lpfc_max_luns range 1-32768,
+ default 32768.
+ * Allow lpfc_fcp.c to call lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name().
+ * Increase nodev timeout from 20 seconds to 30 seconds.
+ * Replace some kfree((void*)ptr) with kfree(ptr).
+ * Make 3 functions static: lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name,
+ lpfc_intr_prep and lpfc_setup_slim_access. Move lpfc_intr_prep
+ and lpfc_setup_slim_access so they're defined before being used.
+ * Remove an unnecessary list_del() in lpfc_hbadisc.c.
+ * Set nlp_state before calling lpfc_nlp_list() since this will
+ potentially call fc_target_unblock which may cause a race in
+ queuecommand by releasing host_lock.
+ * Since lpfc_nodev_tmo < dev_loss_tmo remove queuecommand
+ DID_BAD_TARGET return for now.
+ * Fix a problem with rcv logo.
+ * Remove unused portstatistics_t structure.
+ * Remove #if 0 and unnecessary checks in lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Simplify lpfc_issue_lip: Extra layer of protection removed.
+ * Grab lock before calling lpfc_sli_issue_mbox(phba, pmb,
+ MBX_NOWAIT) in lpfc_sli_issue_mbox_wait().
+
+Changes from 20040920 to 20041018
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.13
+ * Hide some attributes using #ifndef DFC_DEBUG ... #endif.
+ * Modify Makefile to (1) make BUILD_NO_DEBUG=1 will hide some
+ (binary) attributes (2) make BUILD_FC_TRANS=0 will build driver
+ for 2.6.5 kernel with block/unblock patch.
+ * Modified #ifdef names.
+ * Added support for proposed FC transport host attributes (which
+ replaces some of the attributes we had local to the driver).
+ Removed the binary statistics sysfs attribute.
+ * Added extra ELS verbose logging for ELS responses.
+ * Added recognition for BUILD_FC_TRANS=2 to Makefile to define
+ FC_TRANS_VER2.
+ * Add a pointer for link stats allocation.
+ * Exported lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name for use by FC_TRANS_VER2
+ sysfs routines.
+ * Fix discovery problem in lip testing: if device sends an ELS cmd
+ (i.e. LOGO) before our FLOGI completes it should be LS_RJT'ed.
+ * Moved #defines around to provide target_add/remove for upstream
+ kernel deliverables only not SLES9. Provided ifdefs to #include
+ target_block/unblock only if FC_TRANS_VER1.
+ * Add sanity check in lpfc_nlp_list move setting nlp_Target
+ outside #ifdef.
+ * Added a blocked member to the lpfc_target structure for
+ block/unblock. This member allows the driver to know when to
+ unblock for pci_remove_one or pci_add_one. #ifdef'd some more
+ block/unblock stuff and removed some defensive checks from
+ target_block/unblock.
+ * Moved + 5 second window to dev_loss_tmo setting and updated
+ comments.
+ * Removed NULL target check from target_block/unblock and fixed up
+ a few comments.
+ * Enable sysfs attributes on 2.6.5 kernels and remove extra
+ compatibility code.
+ * Remove any and all trailing whitespace.
+ * Added message 0718 and return error when dma_map_single fails.
+ * Changed the fcpCntl2 commands to include an FCP_ prefix to get
+ rid of build warnings on later 2.6.9-rc kernels. Build
+ conflicts with scsi/scsi.h. Remove inclusions of scsi/scsi.h
+ from hbadisc.c, sli.c, and fcp.c since these modules had no
+ dependencies on scsi.h.
+ * Fixed a bug with RSCN handling. A RSCN received on one device,
+ shouldn't affect other devices not referenced by the RSCN.
+ * Moved #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,6) to include
+ lpfc_jedec_to_ascii to prevent warning in SLES 9.
+ * Update Makefile to account for SLES 9 and scsi-target upstream
+ kernel.
+ * This checkin provides block/unblock hooks for the upstream scsi
+ target kernel and 2.6.5 on SLES9 SP1 with the block/unblock
+ patch.
+ * Discovery changes regarding setting targetp->pnode and
+ ndlp->nlp_Target Ensure fc_target_* routines are called properly
+ from discovery. Remove list_del's from lpfc_cleanup(). Ensure
+ all the lpfc_consistent_bind_* routines don't set any driver
+ structure objects.
+ * Fix for timeout of READ_LA or READ_SPARAM mailbox command
+ causing panic.
+ * Cleanup list_del()'s for Discovery ndlp lists.
+ * Bug fixes for some insmod/rmmod crashes, link down crashes and
+ device loss crashes.
+ * Removed NLP_SEARCH_DEQUE.
+ * Call lpfc_target_unblock only if the targetp is nonNull and with
+ the host_lock held.
+ * Added qcmdcnt back along with misc bug fixes to discovery.
+ * Changed tgt_io to outfcpio lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Fixed errors caused by LIP and cable pulls both with and without
+ block/unblock patch.
+ * For now we have to call fc_target_unblock and fc_target_block
+ with interrupts enabled.
+ * Save seg_cnt from dma_map_sg. Save scatter-gather start address
+ and pass back to dma_unmap_sg in error with seg_cnt.
+ * Incorporating block/unblock calls into driver with ifdefs. This
+ change is supported by scsi-target-2.6 kernel and forward only.
+ * Merged in some discovery bug fixes and added tgt io counters.
+ * Added sysfs attributes/interfaces: read only attribute
+ "management_version" and write only attribute "issue_lip".
+ * Fix build on big endian machines: while #if was OK with
+ __BIG_ENDIAN which defined as 4321, __BIG_ENDIAN_BITFIELD has to
+ be tested with #ifdef because it does not have any value, it is
+ either defined or not.
+ * Add fabric_name and port_type attributes.
+ * Change mdelay to msleep. mdelay works, but wastefully uses cpu
+ resources without a lock held. Revert to msleep. Tested with
+ sg_reset for bus and three attached targets.
+ * Added the customary #ifndef...#define...#endif to
+ lpfc_version.h.
+ * Integrate patches from Christoph Hellwig: two new helpers common
+ to lpfc_sli_resume_iocb and lpfc_sli_issue_iocb - singificant
+ cleanup of those two functions - the unused SLI_IOCB_USE_TXQ is
+ gone - lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait loses its flags argument
+ totally.
+ * Fix in lpfc_sli.c: we can not store a 5 bit value in a 4-bit
+ field.
+ * Moved some routines out of lpfc_fcp.c into more appropriate
+ files.
+ * Whitespace cleanup: remove all trailing whitespace.
+ * Make lpfc_disc_ndlp_show static to lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Remove leftover printk and replace some with
+ printk(KERN_WARNING)
+ * Trivial: fix a few long lines and a soft tab.
+ * Remove warnings generated by Sparse against driver (make
+ C=1). Mostly these are "using integer as pointer warnings"
+ i.e. use NULL instead of 0.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Quite a lot of changes
+ here, the most notable is that the phba->slim2p lpfc_dmabuf goes
+ away in favour of a typede pointer and a dma_addr_t. Due to the
+ typed pointer lots of the cast mess can go away, and while at it
+ I also replaced the messy SLI2_SLIM_t with a simple struct
+ lpfc2_sli2_slim that only contains the part of the union we care
+ about while using SLI2_SLIM_SIZE for all size calculations
+ directly.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: This streamlines the
+ I/O completion path a little more, especially taking care of
+ fast-pathing the non-error case. Also removes tons of dead
+ members and defines from lpfc_scsi.h - e.g. lpfc_target is down
+ to nothing more than the lpfc_nodelist pointer.
+ * Added binary sysfs file to issue mbox commands
+ * Replaced #if __BIG_ENDIAN with #if __BIG_ENDIAN_BITFIELD for
+ compatibility with the user space applications.
+ * Decrease the amount of data in proc_info.
+ * Condense nodelist flag members.
+ * Expand INFO for discovery sysfs shost entries.
+ * Notify user if information exceeds 4k sysfs limit.
+ * Removed a bunch of unused #defines.
+ * Added initial sysfs discovery shost attributes.
+ * Remove unused #defines lpfc_disc.h.
+ * Fixed failMask nodelist settings.
+ * Cleanup some old comments / unused variables.
+ * Add LP101 to list of recognized adapters.
+
+Changes from 20040908 to 20040920
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.12
+ * Removed used #defines: DEFAULT_PCI_LATENCY_CLOCKS and
+ PCI_LATENCY_VALUE from lpfc_hw.h.
+ * Changes to accommodate rnid.
+ * Fix RSCN handling so RSCN NS queries only effect NPorts found in
+ RSCN data.
+ * If we rcv a plogi on a NPort queued up for discovery, clear the
+ NLP_NPR_2B_DISC bit since rcv plogi logic will force NPort thru
+ discovery.
+ * Ensure lpfc_target is also cleaned up in lpfc_cleanup().
+ * Preliminary changes for block/unblock kernel API extensions in
+ progress with linux-scsi list. These are name changes and
+ prototype changes only.
+ * Added send_abts flag to lpfc_els_abort. For rcv LOGO when ADISC
+ sent, the XRI of the LOGO rcv'ed is the same as the ADISC
+ sent. Thus we cannot ABTS the ADISC before sending the LOGO ACC.
+ * Weed out some unused fc_flags. Add FC_DISC_TMO.
+ * board_online sysfs attribute added to support libdfc functions
+ InitDiagEnv and SetBrdEnv.
+ * Streamline code in lpfc_els_retry fixup abort case in
+ lpfc_els_timeout_handler().
+ * Flush discovery/ELS events when we bring SLI layer down.
+ * ctlreg and slimem binary attributes added to support libdfc
+ read/write mem/ctl functions.
+ * Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch: Cleanup
+ lpfc_sli_ringpostbuf_get.
+ * Modified lpfc_slave_alloc and lpfc_slave_destroy to allocate and
+ free a dummy target pointer. This allows queuecommand to skip
+ the NULL target pointer check and avoid the console spam when
+ slave_alloc fails.
+ * Fix cfg_scan_down logic, it was reversed.
+ * Init list head ctrspbuflist.
+ * Change name of lpfc_driver_abort to lpfc_els_abort since it is
+ only valid for ELS ring.
+ * Remove unused third argument for lpfc_consistent_bind_get().
+ * Fix up iotag fields in lpfc_prep_els_iocb().
+ * Remove log message on code path triggered by lpfc_els_abort().
+ * Set host->unique_id in lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Removed deadwood: lpfc_target.pHba not necessary anymore.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: remove dead
+ SLI_IOCB_POLL handling.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Streamline I/O
+ submission and completion path a little.
+ * Remove unnecessary lpfc_brd_no. Ensure brd_no assignment is
+ unique.
+ * Removed unused MAX_FCP_LUN.
+ * Use mod_timer instead of add_timer for fdmi in lpfc_ct.c.
+ * Fixed misc discovery problems.
+ * Move stopping timers till just before lpfc_mem_free() call.
+ * Fix up NameServer reglogin error path.
+ * Cleanup possible outstanding discovery timers on rmmod.
+ * Fix discovery NPort to NPort pt2pt problem.
+ * Get rid of ip_tmofunc / scsi_tmofunc.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig:
+ lpfc_disc_done/lpfc_do_dpc cleanup - lpfc_disc_done can return
+ void - move lpfc_do_dpc and lpfc_disc_done to lpfc_hbadisc.c -
+ remove checking of list emptiness before calling lpfc_disc_done,
+ it handles the empty list case just fine and the additional
+ instructions cost less then the bustlocked spinlock operations.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: This adds a new 64bit
+ counter instead, brd_no isn't reused anymore. Also some tiny
+ whitespace cleanups in surrounding code.
+ * Reorder functions in lpfc_els.c to remove need for prototypes.
+ * Removed unused prototypes from lpfc_crtn.h -
+ lpfc_ip_timeout_handler, lpfc_read_pci and lpfc_revoke.
+ * Removed some unused prototypes from lpfc_crtn.h -
+ lpfc_scsi_hba_reset, lpfc_scsi_issue_inqsn,
+ lpfc_scsi_issue_inqp0, lpfc_scsi_timeout_handler.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: remove TRUE/FALSE
+ usage.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Remove unused function
+ prototypes lpfc_set_pkt_len and lpfc_get_pkt_data from
+ lpfc_crtn.h - fixes build warnings.
+ * Removed unused struct lpfc_dmabufip definition from lpfc_mem.h.
+ * Removed pre-2.6.5 MODULE_VERSION macro from lpfc_compat.h.
+ * Fixing missing static and removing dead code.
+ * Adding nodewwn, portwwn and portfcid shost attributes.
+ * Initial support for CT via sysfs. request payloads of size less
+ than PAGE_SIZE and rsp payloads of size PAGE_SIZE are supported.
+ Driver maintains a list of rsp's and passes back rsp's
+ corresponding to the pid of the calling process.
+ * Support for RefreshInformation, GetAdapterAttributes,
+ GetPortStatistics.
+ * Make nodev-tmo default to 20 seconds.
+ * Fix up some DSM error cases, unreg_login rpi where needed.
+ * Fix up comments for fc_target_block / fc_target_unblock.
+ * Fix up code for scsi_block_requests / scsi_unblock_requests.
+ * Add NLP_FCP_TARGET for nodeinfo support.
+ * Move suspend/resume in lpfc_nlp_list under appropriate case -
+ Used host_lock for DPC to avoid race (remove dpc_lock)
+ * Fix some corner cases for PLOGI receive - simplify error case
+ for cmpl_reglogin_reglogin_issue.
+ * Bug fix for ppc64 EEH MMIO panic - always do readl after
+ writel's of HBA registers to force flush.
+ * Get rid of initial static routine declarations in lpfc_hbadisc.c
+ and lpfc_els.c.
+ * Updates to discovery processing.
+
+Changes from 20040823 to 20040908
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.11
+ * Removed persistent binding code.
+ * Display both ASC and ASCQ info.
+ * Fixed link down->up transitions when linkdown tmo expires. Fix
+ was in the defensive error checking at the start of
+ queuecommand.
+ * Removed lpfc_scsi_timeout_handler as this timer is no longer
+ required. The midlayer will exhaust retries and then call
+ lpfc_abort_handler, lpfc_reset_lun_handler, and
+ lpfc_reset_target_handler.
+ * Minimal support for SCSI flat space addressing/volume set
+ addressing. Use 16 bits of LUN address so that flat
+ addressing/VSA will work.
+ * Changed 2 occurrences of if( 1 != f(x)) to if(f(x) != 1)
+ * Drop include of lpfc_cfgparm.h.
+ * Reduce stack usage of lpfc_fdmi_cmd in lpfc_ct.c.
+ * Add minimum range checking property to /sys write/store
+ functions.
+ * Fix display of node_name and port_name via fc transport
+ attr.
+ * Removed biosparam code.
+ * Removed range checking. phba->config[] array elements are now
+ embedded into the hba struct. lpfc_config_setup() has been
+ removed.
+ * Collapsed lpfc_scsi_cmd_start into lpfc_queuecommand and cleaned
+ up combined routines.
+ * Removed unused prototypes myprint and
+ lpfc_sched_service_high_priority_queue.
+ * Removed unused function lpfc_nodev.
+ * Removed scsi_cmnd->timeout_per_command cancelation. SCSI midlayer
+ now times out all commands - FW is instructed to not timeout.
+ * Removed polling code from lpfc_scsi_cmd_start. Reorganized
+ queuecommand and cmd_start some.
+
+Changes from 20040810 to 20040823
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.10
+ * Additional timer changes as per Arjan / Christoph's comments.
+ * Used mod_timer() instead of del_timer_sync() where appropriate.
+ * Fixed a use after free case (panic on 2.6.8.1 with
+ CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB set).
+ * Fix compile warning in lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Minor fix for log message, that prints unassigned brdno which is
+ zero.
+ * Move scsi_host_alloc() to the beginning of probe_one(). This
+ ensures that host_lock is available at later stages and also
+ avoids tons of unnecessary initializing if host_alloc()
+ fails.
+ * Removed else clause from lpfc_slave_configure that set
+ sdev->queue_depth. The driver informs the midlayer of its
+ setting in the template and only overrides if queue tagging is
+ enabled.
+ * Added PCI_DEVICE_ID_ZEPHYR and PCI_DEVICE_ID_ZFLY (Junior
+ Zephyr) support
+
+Changes from 20040730 to 20040810
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.9
+ * Removed per HBA driver lock. Driver now uses the host->host_lock
+ * Restored support for the 2.6.5 kernel for those linux distributions
+ shipped with the 2.6.5 kernel.
+ * Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) as follows
+ "[PATCH] use scsi host private data in ->proc_info.
+ * Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) as follows
+ "Re: [Emulex] Ready for next round. This patch cleans up the memory
+ allocation routines a little and fixes a missing mempool_destroy and
+ some missing error handling."
+ * Changed pointers assignments from 0 to NULL.
+ * Added fixes to the lpfc_reset_lun_handler and lpfc_reset_bus_handler
+ entry points that caused kernel to Oops or hang.
+ * Added fixes to targetless hosts that caused modprobe and insmod to hang.
+ * Ongoing cleanup to many files
+
+Changes from 20040723 to 20040730
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.8
+ * Removed unused LPFN_DRIVER_VERSION #define.
+ * Folded lpfc_findnode_scsiid into lpfc_find_target, its only
+ caller.
+ * Removed 2 unneeded arguments to lpfc_find_target (lun and
+ create_flag).
+ * Make lpfc_sli_reset_on_init = 1
+ * Minor cleanup to quieten sparse.
+ * Removed missing function = 0 in tmo routine in lpfc_els.c.
+ * Moved additional binding parameters into lpfc_defaults.c:
+ lpfc_automap / lpfc_fcp_bind_method
+ * Use msecs_to_jiffies() where applicable.
+ * Only use queue depth attribute only after SLI HBA setup was
+ completed.
+ * Put in memory barriers for PPC
+ * Added PCI_DEVICE_ID_HELIOS and PCI_DEVICE_ID_JFLY (Junior
+ Helios) support
+ * Added 4&10 gigabit choices in user option link_speed
+ * Updated timer logic: Set timer data after init_timer use
+ timer_pending() instead of expires.
+ * Removed some remnants of IP over FC support from Kconfig and
+ Makefile.
+ * Remove redundant prototypes for lpfc_handle_eratt,
+ lpfc_handle_latt and lpfc_read_pci.
+ * Ongoing cleanup of lpfc_init.c.
+ * Changed LPFC_CFG_DFT_HBA_Q_DEPTH -> LPFC_CFG_HBA_Q_DEPTH.
+ * Another cleanup stab at lpfc_ct.c. Remove castings, structure
+ code sanely, remove redundant code, reorganize code so that
+ functions are invoked after definition.
+
+Changes from 20040716 to 20040723
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.7
+ * Cleanup of lpfc_ct.c. Removed number of casts, removed tons of
+ dead/redundant code, cleaned up badly and poorly written code,
+ cleaned up return values.
+ * Fixed Persistent binding implementation
+ * Removed all references to lpfc_scsi_req_tmo
+ * Removed last references to lun_skip config parameter.
+ * Removed LPFC_DEV_RPTLUN node failure bit because we don't issue
+ REPORT_LUNS from the driver anymore.
+ * Removed LUN-tracking in driver. Removed lpfc_lun struct and
+ moved any functionality we still need to lpfc_target.
+ * Added new lpfc_jedec_to_ascii() call and replace two instances
+ of duplicate code with calls to this function.
+ * Removed Volume Set Addressing handling on LUN IDs.
+ * Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) that
+ removes dead code belonging to lpfc_build_scsi_cmnd() and its
+ call path. This is related to the recently removed report_lun
+ code.
+
+Changes from 20040709 to 20040716
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.6
+ * Removed internal report LUNs usage. Removed functions:
+ lpfc_disc_issue_rptlun, lpfc_disc_cmpl_rptlun,
+ lpfc_disc_retry_rptlun and their use.
+ * Removed usused scheduler prototypes in lpfc_crtn.h
+ * Replace lpfc_geportname() with generic memcmp().
+ * Rearrange code in lpfc_rcv_plogi_plogi_issue() to make it a
+ little more readable.
+ * Remove redundant port_cmp != 2 check in if
+ (!port_cmp) { .... if (port_cmp != 2).... }
+ * Clock changes: removed struct clk_data and timerList.
+ * Clock changes: separate nodev_tmo and els_retry_delay into 2
+ separate timers and convert to 1 argument changed
+ LPFC_NODE_FARP_PEND_t to struct lpfc_node_farp_pend convert
+ ipfarp_tmo to 1 argument convert target struct tmofunc and
+ rtplunfunc to 1 argument * cr_count, cr_delay and
+ discovery_threads are only needed to be module_params and not
+ visible via sysfs.
+
+Changes from 20040614 to 20040709
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.5
+ * Make lpfc_info static.
+ * Make lpfc_get_scsi_buf static.
+ * Print a warning if pci_set_mwi returns an error.
+ * Changed SERV_PARM to struct serv_parm.
+ * Changed LS_RJT to struct ls_rjt.
+ * Changed CSP to struct csp.
+ * Changed CLASS_PARMS to struct class_parms.
+ * Some cosmetic coding style cleanups to lpfc_fcp.c.

+ LINK_[UP|DOWN] and RSCN events.
+ * Get rid of delay_iodone timer.
+ * Remove qfull timers and qfull logic.
+ * Convert mbox_tmo, nlp_xri_tmo to 1 argment clock handler
+ * Removed duplicate extern defs of the bind variables.

+ un-necessary checks on config[LPFC_CFG_FCP_CLASS].
+ * Moving the persistent binding variables to new file
+ lpfc_defaults.c
+ * Changed LPFC_SCSI_BUF_t to struct lpfc_scsi_buf.
+ * Moved config specific code from probe_one() into
+ config_setup(). Removing a redundant check on scandown value
+ from bind_setup() as this is already done in config_setup().
+ * Changed LPFC_SLI_t to struct lpfc_sli.
+ * Changed FCP_CMND to struct fcp_cmnd.
+ * Changed FCP_RSP to struct fcp_rsp.

+ * Cleanup lpfc_os_return_scsi_cmd() and its call path.
+ * Removed lpfc_no_device_delay.
+ * Consolidating lpfc_hba_put_event() into lpfc_put_event().
+ * Removed following attributes and their functionality:
+ lpfc_extra_io_tmo, lpfc_nodev_holdio, lpfc_delay_rsp_err,
+ lpfc_tgt_queue_depth and lpfc_check_cond_err.
+ * Clock changes consolidating timers, just in the struct lpfc_hba,
+ to get rid of clkData and pass only one argument to timeout
+ routine. Also, removing need for outstanding clock linked list
+ to stop these timers at rmmod.
+ * Move lpfc.conf contents into lpfc_fcp.c. Removing per adapter
+ attributes in favor of global attributes.
+ * Fix a potential null pointer reference of pmbuf in lpfc_ct.c.
+ * On reset_lun, issue LUN_RESET as opposed to ABORT_TASK_SET.
+ * Removed SCSI_REQ_TMO related code.
+ * Introducing two new defines LPFC_ATTR_R and LPFC_ATTR_RW that do
+ a module_param, MODULE_PARM_DESC, lpfc_param_show,
+ [lpfc_param_store] and CLASS_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTE.
+ * Properly clean up when allocation of a linked BDE fails in the
+ SCSI queuecommand path.
+ * Fail SCSI command if dma_map_sg call fails.
+ * Remove unused macros SWAP_ALWAYS and SWAP_ALWAYS16.
+ * Reset context2 to 0 on exit in
+ lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait_high_priority() and
+ lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait().
+ * Arranging lpfc_scsiport.c to follow style of use after
+ definition. This removes the need for the cruft of forward
+ declarations. Also removing a redundant #define ScsiResult as it
+ already available elsewhere.
+ * Applying "Streamline lpfc error handling" patch from Christoph
+ Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) with following modifications: fix
+ mem leaks, remove some misplaced code that need not be there,
+ print a message on exit (old code prints two (entry/exit)), make
+ ret values consistent (either 1/0 or SUCCESS/FAILURE), keep all
+ eh routines in a single file (lpfc_scsiport.c).
+ * Move contents of lpfc_module_param.h into lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Changed sysfs attributes to CLASS_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTES (previously
+ DEVICE_ATTRIBUTES). They now appear in
+ /sys/class/scsi_host/hostx (previously in
+ /sys/bus/pci/drivers/lpfc/devx).
+ * Removed lpfc_syfs.h and lpfc_sysfs.c.
+ * Cleanup of config params. Throttle params have been removed.
+ max_lun has been removed. max_target is replaced with a #define,
+ lun_skip is removed. Remove ipfc config params and related
+ code.
+ * Changed DMABUF_t usage to struct lpfc_dmabuf.
+ * Downsizing iCfgParam structure to include a_string, a_low, a_hi
+ and a_default values only.
+ * Free SCSI buf safety memory pool on shutdown to eliminate memory
+ leak.
+ * Change lpfc_printf_log to a #define. Also include phba->brd_no
+ and newline in the print string rather than in the #define.
+ * Remove code that optionally locates Host Group Pointers in host
+ memory SLIM since this is no longer needed for PPC64, once
+ CONFIG_PORT uses HBA's view of its BAR0.
+ * Removed the forward declarations of the sli functions and
+ rearranging the code in lpfc_sli.c.
+ * Removed the preamble functionality from logging.
+ * Make lpfc_sli_hba_setup() return negative error codes on error
+ and correct the comment left over in lpfc_fcp.c
+ * Removed the lpfc_loadtime variable.
+ * Put a space between all ifs and their open parens '('.
+ * Change Studly_Caps LPFC_SCSI_BUF_t to struct lpfc_scsi_buf.
+ * Fixed insmod hang after hardware error.
+ * Relocated scsi_host alloc to before we enable the interrupt
+ handler
+ * Add .tmp_versions directory to Makefile clean target. This
+ directory is created in the 2.6.5+ build process (with Red Hat
+ kernels at least).
+ * Changing phba->config to kmalloc lpfc_icfgparam and not
+ *phba->config. This is manifesting itself as a panic in
+ pci_release_region().
+ * Fix for firmware download / board reset problem.
+ * Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) to
+ reorganize and cleanup lpfc_fcp.c
+ * Don't abort commands immediately when there is an RSCN event to
+ give driver time to rediscover targets before the midlayer
+ retries the SCSI commands.
+
+Changes from 20040604 to 20040614
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.4
+ * Removed lpfc_valid_lun function.
+ * Added scsi_buf safety pool to address scsi_buf failures in
+ queuecommand under low memory conditions. Allocations now come
+ from kmalloc initially, but if kmalloc fails, the allocation
+ comes from the safety pool.
+ * Modified lpfc_slave_alloc to only set the scsi_device->hostdata
+ pointer if the driver has discovered the target. This routine
+ always returns success now as well since no error ever occurs in
+ the alloc routine.
+ * Mask only info and warning messages. Print all error messages
+ irrespective of mask.
+ * Removing lpfc_log_chk_msg_disabled()
+ * Changed lpfc_printf_log to take struct lpfc_hba * directly
+ instead of a "board number".
+ * Convert dma_sync_single to pci_dma_sync_single_for_{device/cpu}.
+ * Implemented new style log messages. The message strings are now
+ embedded in the call to lpfc_printf_log.
+ * Decreased FLOGI discovery timeout to 20 seconds.
+ * On error in lpfc_pci_probe_one() return -1 and not 1.
+ * Allow for board numbers that are not sequential, paving the way
+ for hotplug support.
+ * scsi_add_host() can fail, so wrap it around in an if(). Also
+ initiate scsi_scan_host() after attaching the sysfs attributes.
+ * lpfc_release_version is used only in lpfc_ct.c, so move it there
+ and mark it as static.
+ * Removed lpfc_sleep_ms and replaced with mdelay or schedule calls
+ directly
+ * Removed all (struct list_head *) casts from clkData-related list
+ handling in list_add, list_del macros.
+ * Removed EXPORT_SYMBOLs.
+ * Removed LPFC_MIN_QFULL and lpfc_qthrottle_up.
+ * Replace LPFCSCSITARGET_t with struct lpfc_target.
+ * Replace LPFCSCSILUN_t with struct lpfc_lun.
+ * Remove unused struct declarations (fcPathId and fcRouteId) from
+ lpfc_scsi.h.
+ * Rewrite use of FC transport attributes.
+ * Fix crash when link is lost. This was due to lpfc_delay_iodone
+ calling list_del on an object that was never put on a list.
+ * Remove trailing spaces at the end of all lines.
+ * Set MAX_FCP_TARGET to 256 from 0xff. Set MAX_FCP_LUN and
+ MAX_FCP_CMDS to their decimal equivalents and updated
+ documentation.
+
+Changes from 20040526 to 20040604
+
+ * Changed version number to 8.0.3
+ * Completed sysfs FC transport support.
+ * Removed unused fields in SCSI LUN and SCSI Target structures:
+ void *pTargetProto; void *pTargetOSEnv; void *pLunOSEnv;
+ * Modified list_for_each to list_for_each_entry. Modified
+ list_for_each_safe to list_for_each_entry_safe.
+ * Remove lpfc_dfc.h file.
+ * Changed pHba->phba, pCommand->pcmd
+ * Changed plogi_ndlp -> plogindlp, pos_tmp->postmp, pRsp->prsp,
+ pCmd->pcmd
+ * Changed pText -> ptext
+ * Changed p_tmp_buff -> ptmpbuff
+ * Changed pBufList -> pbuflist, pRsp -> prsp, pCmd -> pcmd
+ * Changed *pos_tmp -> *postmp, *p_mbuf -> *pmbuf
+ * Following changes are made to the SCSI fast path: Added
+ DMA_BUF_t member to the lpfc_scsi_buf_t. This will reduce a
+ memory allocation in the scsi fast path. Added check for
+ targetp == NULL in the scsi fast path. Increased number of
+ scatter gather entries in lpfc_scsi_dma_ext to 4 from 3 and
+ changed the size of lpfc_scsi_dma_ext to 264
+ * Fixing some missing static lpfc_nportdisc.c.
+ * Reordered #include lines so that lpfc.h doesn't have to #include
+ other header files.
+ * Remove lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name() as a global EXPORT and make
+ it static.
+ * Move struct clk_data definition from lpfc_hw.h to lpfc_sli.h.
+ * Changed LPFC_IOCBQ_t to struct lpfc_iocbq.
+ * Changed LPFC_SLI_RING_t to struct lpfc_sli_ring.
+ * Changed LPFC_NODELIST_t to struct lpfc_nodelist.
+ * Rearranged lpfc_nportdisc.c by moving state machine array
+ (lpfc_disc_action) and the one function that uses it,
+ lpfc_disc_state_machine, to the end of the file, removing the
+ need for the raft of prototypes at the top.
+ * Changed LPFC_BINDLIST_t to struct lpfc_bindlist.
+ * Removed lpfc_issue_ct_rsp(), lpfc_sleep(), lpfc_add_bind(),
+ lpfc_del_bind(), lpfc_sli_wake_mbox_wait() and
+ lpfc_sli_issue_mbox_wait().
+ * Fixed a large number of overly-long lines.
+ * Fixed some discovery problems: Introduced deferred ndlp removal
+ when in DSM to avoid panic when in nested DMSs Fix NportId
+ fffc01 handling to not relogin after LOGO fixed handling of LOGO
+ on PLOGI issue.
+ * Changed SLI_CT_REQUEST to lpfc_sli_ct_request.
+ * Changed NAME_TYPE to struct lpfc_name.
+ * Changed lpfcCfgParam_t to struct lpfc_cfgparam.
+ * Changed LPFC_STAT_t to struct lpfc_stats.
+ * Changed HBAEVT_t to struct lpfc_hba_event.
+ * Changed Studly_Caps lpfcHBA_t to struct lpfc_hba.
+ * Removed no longer used tasklet_running flag.
+ * Removing *PSOME_VAR typedefs and using SOME_VAR* directly.
+ * Changing .use_clustering to ENABLE_CLUSTERING.
+ * Modify lpfc_queuecommand to return SCSI_MLQUEUE_HOST_BUSY when
+ it can't queue a SCSI command. Also, remove cmnds_in_flight
+ member of struct lpfcHBA for 2.6 kernels as it was only needed
+ to determine what to return from queuecommand.
+ * Change return type of lpfc_evt_iocb_free to void as it doesn't
+ return anything.
+ * Remove unused cmnd_retry_list and in_retry members in struct
+ lpfcHBA.
+ * Remove some instances of unneeded casting of kmalloc's return in
+ lpfc_scsiport.c
+ * Remove lpfc_linux_attach() and lpfc_linux_detach(). Integrate
+ them into lpfc_probe_one() and lpfc_release_one() respectively.
+ * Remove lpfc_num_iocbs, lpfc_num_bufs module parameters
+ * Remove #defines for NUM_NODES, NUM_BUFS and NUM_IOCBS
+
+Changes from 20040515 to 20040526
+
+ * Changing version number to 8.0.2.
+ * Including dma-mapping.h as one of the include headers. Also
+ rearrange the #include order.
+ * Make functions static as appropriate.
+ * queuecommand() will now return SCSI_MLQUEUE_HOST_BUSY instead of
+ 1 to backpressure midlayer.
+ * Removed function prototypes for lpfc_start_timer() and
+ lpfc_stop_timer()
+ * Changed timer support to be inline. Clk_data is now declared
+ right next to the corresponding timer_list entry so we don't
+ have to allocate these clk_data dynamically.
+ * Add readls after writels to PCI space to flush the writes.
+ * Fix misspelled word "safety" in function names.
+ * Fix up comments in lpfc.conf for per HBA parameters to reflect
+ new implementation.

+ fc_nodename and not fc_portname.
+ * Fix up some comments and whitespace in lpfc_fcp.c.
+ * Formatting changes: get rid of leading spaces in code
+ * Move discovery processing from tasklet to a kernel thread.
+ * Move ndlp node from unmap list to map list if ADISC completed
+ successfully.
+ * Flush all the ELS IOCBs when there is a link event.
+ * LP9802 qdepth is twice the LP9802DC qdepth. Delay
+ elx_sched_init after READ_CONFIG to get max_xri from the
+ firmware. Reset ELX_CFG_DFT_HBA_Q_DEPTH to max_xri after
+ READ_CONFIG
+ * Fix fc_get_cfg_parm() to be more robust and support embedded hex
+ values. The lpfc_param's are now defined as:
+ lpfc_log_verbose="lpfc:0,lpfc0:0x10,lpfc1:4,lpfc100:0xffff" The
+ "," delimter does not matter. It can be anything or not exist at
+ all. ie param = "lpfc:0lpfc0:0x10.lpfc1:4txtlpfc100:0xffff" will
+ also work. Additionally the string is treated as case
+ insensitive.
+ * Changed all usage of lpfc_find_lun_device() to lpfc_find_lun().
+ * Removed unnecessary wrappers lpfc_find_lun_device() and
+ lpfc_tran_find_lun().
+ * Switch from using internal bus/id/lun to similar data from
+ scsi_device structure.
+ * Eliminate one-line function lpfc_find_target()
+ * Added slave_alloc, slave_destory
+ * lpfc_scsi_cmd_start can now acquire lun pointer from
+ scsi_device->hostdata, which is setup in slave_alloc.
+ * Eliminate unnecessary checking on every cmd just to see if we
+ are accessing the device the first time.
+ * Remove assumption in lpfc_reset_lun_handler that a valid
+ lpfc_scsi_buf is hung off of linux's scsi_cmnd->host_scribble
+ when our reset is called.
+
+Changes from 20040507 to 20040515

+
+Changes from 20040429 to 20040507
+
+ * Change version to 8.0.0

+ lpfc_drvr_unlock and lpfc_hipri_*.
+ * Remove LPFC_DRVR_LOCK and LPFC_DRVR_UNLOCK macros.
+ * Make lpfc_info() use lpfc_get_hba_model_desc() instead of
+ rewriting almost identical code.
+ * Fix 1 overly long line in each of lpfc_cfgparm.h, lpfc_ftp.c and
+ lpfc_sli.c.
+ * Fix build for Red Hat 2.6.3 kernel by #defining MODULE_VERSION
+ only if it isn't already defined.
+ * Change elx_sli_issue_mbox_wait to return correct error code to
+ the caller.
+ * In some of the els completion routines, after calling
+ lpfc_elx_chk_latt, driver ignores the return code of the
+ lpfc_elx_chk_latt. This will prevent the discovery state machine
+ restarting correctly when there are link events in the middle of
+ discovery state machine running. Fix this by exiting discovery

+ * Changed lpfc version number to 6.98.3
+ * Move the definition of MAX_LPFC_BRDS to the only header file
+ that uses it (lpfc_diag.h).
+ * Change lpfc_sli_wake_iocb_wait to do a regular wake_up since
+ lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait now sleeps uninterruptible.
+ * Replace list_for_each() with list_for_each_safe() when a list
+ element could be deleted.
+ * Fix IOCB memory leak
+
+Changes from 20040416 to 20040426

+ structure Added routines lpfc_get_phba_by_inst()
+ lpfc_get_inst_by_phba() lpfc_check_valid_phba()
+ * Turn on attributes "set" & "params" by default.
+ * Further formatting/whitespace/line length cleanup on: lpfc_ct.c
+ lpfc_els.c lpfc_fcp.c lpfc_hbadisc.c lpfc_init.c lpfc_ipport.c
+ lpfc_mbox.c lpfc_nportdisc.c lpfc_sched.c lpfc_sched.h
+ lpfc_scsi.h lpfc_scsiport.c lpfc_sli.c and lpfc_sli.h

+ modes encountered.
+ * Add support for 256 targets and 256 LUNs

+ * Cleanup use of several gotos not used for error exit.
+ * Replace memcpy_toio() and memcpy_toio() with endian-dependent
+ lpfc_memcpy_to_slim() and lpfc_memcpy_from_slim() so that for
+ big endian hosts like PPC64, the SLIM is accessed 4 bytes at a
+ time instead of as a byte-stream.
+
+Changes from 20040409 to 20040416
+
+ * The scsi_register and scsi_alloc_host OS calls can fail and
+ return a zero-valued host pointer. A ctrl-C on 2.6 kernels
+ during driver load will cause this and the driver to panic.
+ Fixed this bug. Also found a bug in the error_x handling with
+ lpfc_sli_hba_down - it was in the wrong place and the driver
+ lock was not held, but needed to be (in lpfc_linux_attach) Fixed
+ both. Did some minor comment clean up.
+ * Removed unwanted (void *) castings.
+ * Replace define of INVALID_PHYS, with kernel 2.6.5's
+ dma_mapping_error() and add a inline function for earlier
+ kernels. Remove lpfc_bad_scatterlist().

+ - mostly replacing groups of 8 spaces with hard tabs and keeping
+ lines to 80 column max..
+ * Removed LPFC_DRVR_LOCK call from lpfc_unblock_requests for 2.4
+ kernels. The lpfc_scsi_done routine already unlocks the driver
+ lock since it expects this lock to be held.
+ * Removed global lock capabilities from driver lock routines
+ * Remove SA_INTERRUPT flag from request_irq
+ * Move dma_addr_t cast inside of getPaddr macro as everywhere
+ getPaddr is used, the return is cast to dma_addr_t.
+ * Clean up formatting in lpfc_sli.c and lpfc_sysfs.c - mostly
+ replacing groups of 8 spaces with hard tabs and keeping lines
+ to 80 column max.
+ * Fix build for RHEL 2.1 BOOT kernels by always #including
+ interrupt.h in lpfc.h.
+ * Fix RHEL 3 build by #defining EXPORT_SYMTAB.
+ * Replace sprintf with snprintf in lpfc_proc_info.

+ * Removing char interface and ioctl code.
+ * Change all elx prefixes to lpfc
+ * Replace lpfc_write_slim() & lpfc_read_slim() with memcpy_toio(),

+ * Removed lpfc_els_chk_latt from the lpfc_config_post function.
+ lpfc_els_chk_latt will enable the link event interrupts when
+ flogi is pending which causes two discovery state machines
+ running parallelly.
+ * Add pci_disable_device to unload path.
+ * Move lpfc_sleep_event from lpfc_fcp.c to lpfc_util_ioctl.c
+ * Call dma_map_single() & pci_map_single() directly instead of via
+ macro lpfc_pci_map(). Allow address 0 for PPC64.

+ because this function doesn't handle signals.
+ * Move lpfc_wakeup_event from lpfc_fcp.c to lpfc_ioctl.c

+ lpfc_get_OsNameVersion to lpfc_get_os_nameversion.
+ * Remove lpfc_get_OsNameVersion
+ * Change driver name to a consistent lpfc in every visible place.
+ * Fix build warning: removed unused variable ret in lpfc_fdmi_tmo.
+ * Remove lpfc_utsname_nodename_check function
+ * Remove functions lpfc_register_intr and lpfc_unregister_intr

+ * Remove special case check for TUR in elx_os_prep_io()
+ * Renamed elx_scsi.h to lpfc_scsi.h
+ * Renamed elx_sched.h to lpfc_sched.h
+ * Renamed elx_mem.h to lpfc_mem.h
+ * Renamed elx_sli.h to lpfc_sli.h
+ * Renamed elx_logmsg.h to lpfc_logmsg.h
+ * Renamed elx.h to lpfc.h

+ * Added ct_ndlp_context field to the ELX_IOCBQ_t.
+ * Do not use DMABUf_t list to store ndlp context
+ * Return 0 from lpfc_process_iotcl_util() when ELX_INITBRDS
+ succeeds.
+ * remove elx_os_scsiport.h
+ * Do not use DMABUf_t list to hold rpi context
+ * Replace elx_cfg_* names with lpfc_cfg-*

+ * Remove unused elxclock declaration in elx_sli.h.
+ * Since everywhere IOCB_ENTRY is used, the return value is cast,
+ move the cast into the macro.

+ * Break up ioctls into 3 sections, dfc, util, hbaapi
+ rearranged code so this could be easily separated into a
+ differnet module later All 3 are currently turned on by
+ defines in lpfc_ioctl.c LPFC_DFC_IOCTL, LPFC_UTIL_IOCTL,
+ LPFC_HBAAPI_IOCTL
+ * Misc cleanup: some goto's; add comments; clarify function
+ args
+ * Added code to use list macro for ELXSCSITARGET_t.
+ * New list implementation for ELX_MBOXQ_t
+ * Cleaned up some list_head casting.
+ * Put IPFC ifdef around two members of struct lpfc_nodelist.
+ * Cleaned up iocb list using list macros and list_head data
+ structure.
+ * lpfc_online() was missing some timer routines that were
+ started by lpfc_linux_attach(). These routines are now also
+ started by lpfc_online(). lpfc_offline() only stopped
+ els_timeout routine. It now stops all timeout routines
+ associated with that hba.
+ * Replace separate next and prev pointers in struct
+ lpfc_bindlist with list_head type. In elxHBA_t, replace
+ fc_nlpbind_start and _end with fc_nlpbind_list and use
+ list_head macros to access it.
+ * Fix ulpStatus for aborting I/Os overlaps with newer firmware
+ ulpStatus values
+ * Rework params_show/store to be consistent as the other
+ routines. Remove generic'ness and rely on set attribute.
+ * Remove unused log message.
+ * Collapse elx_crtn.h and prod_crtn.h into lpfc_crtn.h
+ * Ifdef Scheduler specific routines
+ * Removed following ununsed ioclt's: ELX_READ_IOCB
+ ELX_READ_MEMSEG ELX_READ_BINFO ELX_READ_EINVAL ELX_READ_LHBA
+ ELX_READ_LXHBA ELX_SET ELX_DBG LPFC_TRACE
+ * Removed variable fc_dbg_flg
+ * Fixed a bug where HBA_Q_DEPTH was set incorrectly for
+ 3-digit HBAs. Also changed can_queue so midlayer will only
+ send (HBA_Q_DEPTH - 10) cmds.
+ * Clean up code in the error path, check condition. Remove
+ ununsed sense-related fields in lun structure.
+ * Added code for safety pools for following objects: mbuf/bpl,
+ mbox, iocb, ndlp, bind
+ * Wrapped '#include <elx_sched.h>' in '#ifdef USE_SCHEDULER'.
+ * Fixed 'make clean' target.
+ * Build now ignores elx_sched.o, and includes lpfc_sysfs.o.
+ * Wrapped lpfndd.o target in BUILD_IPFC ifdef.
+ * Removed elx_os.h inclusion in implementation files.
+ * Removed ELX_OS_IO_t data structure and put data direction
+ and non scatter/gather physical address into the scsi buffer
+ structure directly. Moved DRVR_LOCK, putPaddr, getPaddr
+ macros and some defines into elx.h since they are required
+ by the whole driver.
+ * Migrated following ioctls (debug) ELX_DISPLAY_PCI_ALL
+ ELX_DEVP ELX_READ_BPLIST ELX_RESET_QDEPTH ELX_STAT.
+ * Step 1 of attempt to move all Debug ioctls to sysfs.
+ Implemented the following IOCTLs in sysfs: ELX_WRITE_HC
+ ELX_WRITE_HS ELX_WRITE_HA ELX_WRITE_CA ELX_READ_HC
+ ELX_READ_HS ELX_READ_HA ELX_READ_CA ELX_READ_MB ELX_RESET
+ ELX_READ_HBA ELX_INSTANCE ELX_LIP. Also introduced
+ attribute "set" to be used in conjunction with the above
+ attributes.
+ * Removed DLINK, enque and deque declarations now that clock
+ doesn't use them anymore
+ * Separated install rule so that BUILD_IPFC has to be set when
+ make is called in order for the install rule to attempt to
+ copy the lpfndd.o driver. This change fixes a bug that
+ occurs because the install rule by default attempted to
+ install lpfndd.o, whereas the default make rule did not by
+ default build lpfndd.o.
+ * Keep track if hbaapi index numbers need to be refreshed.
+ * Removed prod_os.h from include list.
+ * Removed LPFC_LOCK and LPFC_UNLOCK macros. Added OS calls
+ into elx_os_scsiport.c. This file is now empty.
+ * Added spin_lock_irqsave and spin_unlock_irqrestore calls
+ into code directly and removed LPFC_LOCK_ and _UNLOCK_
+ macros
+ * Remove references to "elx_clock.h"
+ * Added utsname.h to include list. The previous checkin to
+ elx_os.h removed its inclusion of utsname.h since there is
+ precious little in the file. However, lpfcLINUXfcp.c needs
+ it and now has it.
+ * Removed some commented-out code
+ * Removed elx_lck_t data structure, stray elxDRVR_t type, and
+ include from file. No longer used.
+ * Removed two PCI Sync defines. Removed includes - not
+ needed. Cleaned up macro lines.
+ * Added two functions from elxLINUXfcp.c. These functions
+ were IPFC specific.
+ * Removed hipri lock abstractions and added OS call into code.
+ Removed elx_lck_t and added spinlock_t directly. Moved two
+ IPFC functions into lpfc_ipport.c
+ * Moved IP specific structures to lpfc_ip.h file.
+ * lpfc_ipfarp_timeout() uses system timer. Remove all usages
+ of old internal clock support.
+ * Made changes to compile without IPFC support for the default
+ build. Added ifdef IPFC for all lpfc_ip.h includes.
+ * Patched elx_free_scsi_buf
+ * Removed elx_sched.o from 2.6 dependencies
+ * Reworked lpfc_pcimap.
+ * Use Linux swap macros to replace ELX swapping macros
+ (SWAP_SHORT, SWAP_LONG, SWAP_DATA, SWAP_DATA16,
+ PCIMEM_SHORT, PCIMEM_LONG, PCIMEM_DATA).
+ * move in_interrupt() check inside of elx_sleep_ms()
+ * Moved location of pci.h include.
+ * Restored elx_lck_t types in elxHBA_t.
+ * Removed elx_pci_dma_sync call. Also removed some PCI

+ lpfc_ip_timeout_handler() now use system timer.
+ * lpfc_fdmi_tmo() and lpfc_qthrottle_up() now use system
+ timer.
+ * Removed num_bufs and num_iocbs configuration parameters.
+ * Fixed a memory corruption bug. This was caused by a memory
+ write to ndlp structure from lpfc_cmpl_els_acc function.
+ This ndlp structure was freed from lpfc_els_unsol_event.
+ * lpfc_disc_timeout() and lpfc_establish_link_tmo() now use
+ system timer. Also update lpfc_els_retry_delay() to do a
+ single lock release at the end.
+ * Remove use of PAN (pseudo adapter number).
+ * Reintroduced usage of the cross compiler for building on
+ ppc64 to remove build errors that were cropping up when
+ using the standard gcc compiler.
+ * Fix no-unlock-before return in lpfc_els_retry_delay which was
+ causing a deadlock on insmod in some environments.
+ * Minor format changes fix up comments
+ * Create utility clock function elx_start_timer() and
+ elx_stop_timer(). All timeout routines now use these common
+ routines.
+ * Minor formating changes fix up comments
+ * Minor formatting changes get rid of failover defines for
+ syntax checking

+Release Date : Thu Nov 16 15:32:35 EST 2006 -
+ Sumant Patro <sumant.patro@lsi.com>
+Current Version : 2.20.5.1 (scsi module), 2.20.2.6 (cmm module)
+Older Version : 2.20.4.9 (scsi module), 2.20.2.6 (cmm module)
+
+1. Changes in Initialization to fix kdump failure.
+ Send SYNC command on loading.
+ This command clears the pending commands in the adapter
+ and re-initialize its internal RAID structure.
+ Without this change, megaraid driver either panics or fails to
+ initialize the adapter during kdump's second kernel boot
+ if there are pending commands or interrupts from other devices
+ sharing the same IRQ.
+2. Authors email-id domain name changed from lsil.com to lsi.com.
+ Also modified the MODULE_AUTHOR to megaraidlinux@lsi.com

+
+1. Fixed a bug in megaraid_init_mbox().
+ Customer reported "garbage in file on x86_64 platform".
+ Root Cause: the driver registered controllers as 64-bit DMA capable
+ for those which are not support it.
+ Fix: Made change in the function inserting identification machanism

+2. When INQUIRY with EVPD bit set issued to the MegaRAID controller,
+ system memory gets corrupted.
+ Root Cause: MegaRAID F/W handle the INQUIRY with EVPD bit set
+ incorrectly.
+ Fix: MegaRAID F/W has fixed the problem and being process of release,
+ soon. Meanwhile, driver will filter out the request.
+
+3. One of member in the data structure of the driver leads unaligne
+ issue on 64-bit platform.
+ Customer reporeted "kernel unaligned access addrss" issue when
+ application communicates with MegaRAID HBA driver.
+ Root Cause: in uioc_t structure, one of member had misaligned and it
+ led system to display the error message.
+ Fix: A patch submitted to community from following folk.

+Older Version : 2.20.4.7 (scsi module), 2.20.2.6 (cmm module)
+
+1. Fixed a bug in megaraid_reset_handler().
+ Customer reported "Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
+ at virtual address 00000000" when system goes to reset condition
+ for some reason. It happened randomly.
+ Root Cause: in the megaraid_reset_handler(), there is possibility not
+ returning pending packets in the pend_list if there are multiple
+ pending packets.
+ Fix: Made the change in the driver so that it will return all packets
+ in the pend_list.
+
+2. Added change request.
+ As found in the following URL, rmb() only didn't help the
+ problem. I had to increase the loop counter to 0xFFFFFF. (6 F's)
+ http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=110971060502497&w=2
+
+ I attached a patch for your reference, too.
+ Could you check and get this fix in your driver?

+1. Sorted out PCI IDs to remove megaraid support overlaps.
+ Based on the patch from Daniel, sorted out PCI IDs along with
+ character node name change from 'megadev' to 'megadev_legacy' to avoid
+ conflict.
+ ---
+ Hopefully we'll be getting the build restriction zapped much sooner,
+ but we should also be thinking about totally removing the hardware
+ support overlap in the megaraid drivers.
+
+ This patch pencils in a date of Feb 06 for this, and performs some
+ printk abuse in hope that existing legacy users might pick up on what's
+ going on.

+
+2. Fixed a issue: megaraid always fails to reset handler.
+ ---
+ I found that the megaraid driver always fails to reset the
+ adapter with the following message:
+ megaraid: resetting the host...
+ megaraid mbox: reset sequence completed successfully
+ megaraid: fast sync command timed out
+ megaraid: reservation reset failed
+ when the "Cluster mode" of the adapter BIOS is enabled.
+ So, whenever the reset occurs, the adapter goes to
+ offline and just become unavailable.

+ Subject RFC: assert_spin_locked() for 2.6
+
+ Greetings!
+
+ overcautious programming will kill your kernel ;)
+ ever thought about checking a spin_lock or even
+ asserting that it must be held (maybe just for
+ spinlock debugging?) ...
+
+ there are several checks present in the kernel
+ where somebody does a variation on the following:
+
+ BUG_ON(!spin_is_locked(&some_lock));
+
+ so what's wrong about that? nothing, unless you
+ compile the code with CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK but
+ without CONFIG_SMP ... in which case the BUG()
+ will kill your kernel ...
+
+ maybe it's not advised to make such assertions,
+ but here is a solution which works for me ...
+ (compile tested for sh, x86_64 and x86, boot/run
+ tested for x86 only)
+
+ best,
+ Herbert

+3 Older Version : 00.00.04.17.1-rc1
+
+1. Add the Online Controller Reset (OCR) to the Driver.
+ OCR is the new feature for megaraid_sas driver which
+ will allow the fw to do the chip reset which will not
+ affact the OS behavious.
+
+ To add the OCR support, driver need to do:
+ a). reset the controller chips -- Xscale and Gen2 which
+ will change the function calls and add the reset function
+ related to this two chips.
+
+ b). during the reset, driver will store the pending cmds
+ which not returned by FW to driver's pending queue. Driver
+ will re-issue those pending cmds again to FW after the OCR
+ finished.
+
+ c). In driver's timeout routine, driver will report to
+ OS as reset. Also driver's queue routine will block the
+ cmds until the OCR finished.
+
+ d). in Driver's ISR routine, if driver get the FW state as
+ state change, FW in Failure status and FW support online controller
+ reset (OCR), driver will start to do the controller reset.
+
+ e). In driver's IOCTL routine, the application cmds will wait for the
+ OCR to finish, then issue the cmds to FW.
+
+ f). Before driver kill adapter, driver will do last chance of
+ OCR to see if driver can bring back the FW.
+
+2. Add the support update flag to the driver to tell LSI megaraid_sas
+ application which driver will support the device update. So application
+ will not need to do the device update after application add/del the device
+ from the system.
+3. In driver's timeout routine, driver will do three time reset if fw is in
+ failed state. Driver will kill adapter if can't bring back FW after the
+ this three times reset.
+4. Add the input parameter max_sectors to 1MB support to our GEN2 controller.
+ customer can use the input paramenter max_sectors to add 1MB support to GEN2
+ controller.

+
+3. Add the new controller(1078DE) support to the driver
+ and Increase the max_wait to 60 from 10 in the controller

+ (reduced interrupt operation). In this mode, IO completion
+ interrupts are delayed. At the end of initiating IOs, the
+ driver schedules for cmd completion if there are pending cmds
+ to be completed. A timer-based interrupt has also been added
+ to prevent IO completion processing from being delayed
+ indefinitely in the case that no new IOs are initiated.

+
+i. Under heavy IO mid-layer prints "DRIVER_TIMEOUT" errors
+
+ Fix: The driver is now throttling IO.
+ Checks added in megasas_queue_command to know if FW is able to
+ process commands within timeout period. If number of retries
+ is 2 or greater,the driver stops sending cmd to FW temporarily. IO is
+ resumed if pending cmd count reduces to 16 or 5 seconds has elapsed
+ from the time cmds were last sent to FW.
+
+ii. FW enables WCE bit in Mode Sense cmd for drives that are configured
+ as WriteBack. The OS may send "SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE" cmd when Logical
+ Disks are exposed with WCE=1. User is advised to enable Write Back
+ mode only when the controller has battery backup. At this time
+ Synhronize cache is not supported by the FW. Driver will short-cycle
+ the cmd and return success without sending down to FW.

+Sat Apr 1 12:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2h
+ - Fix a compilation problem on Alpha introduced in version 3.2g.
+ (`port' changed to `base_io').
+ - Move from `sym' to this driver a tiny change for __sparc__ that
+ applies to cache line size (? Probably from David S Miller).
+ - Make sure no data transfer will happen for Scsi_Cmnd requests
+ that supply SCSI_DATA_NONE direction (this avoids some BUG()
+ statement in the PCI code when a data buffer is also supplied).
+
+Thu Mar 16 9:30 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * revision 3.3b-3
+ - Added exclusion for the 53C1010 and 53C1010_66 chips
+ to the driver (change to sym53c8xx_comm.h).
+
+Mon March 6 23:15 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2g
+ - Add the file sym53c8xx_comm.h that collects code that should
+ be shared by sym53c8xx and ncr53c8xx drivers. For now, it is
+ a header file that is only included by the ncr53c8xx driver,
+ but things will be cleaned up later. This code addresses
+ notably:
+ * Chip detection and PCI related initialisations
+ * NVRAM detection and reading
+ * DMA mapping
+ * Boot setup command
+ * And some other ...
+ - Add support for the new dynamic dma mapping kernel interface.
+ Requires Linux-2.3.47 (tested with pre-2.3.47-6).
+ - Get data transfer direction from the scsi command structure
+ (Scsi_Cmnd) when this information is available.
+

+
+Fri Jan 14 14:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * revision pre-3.3b-1
+ - Merge parallel driver series 3.31 and 3.2e
+
+Tue Jan 11 14:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * revision 3.31
+ - Added support for mounting disks on wide-narrow-wide
+ scsi configurations.
+ - Built off of version 3.30
+
+Mon Jan 10 13:30 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * revision 3.30
+ - Added capability to use the integrity checking code
+ in the kernel (optional).
+ - Disabled support for the 53C1010.
+ - Built off of version 3.2c
+
+Sat Jan 8 22:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2e
+ - Add year 2000 copyright.
+ - Display correctly bus signals when bus is detected wrong.
+ - Remove the dead code that broke driver 3.2d.
+
+Mon Dec 6 22:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2d
+ - Change messages written by the driver at initialisation and
+ through the /proc FS (rather cosmetic changes that consist in
+ printing out the PCI bus number and device/function).
+ - Get rid of the old PCI bios interface, but preserve kernel 2.0
+ compatibility from a simple wrapper.
+ - Remove the compilation condition about having to acquire the
+ io_request_lock since it seems to be a definite feature now.:)
+ - proc_dir structure no longer needed for kernel >= 2.3.27.
+ - Change the driver detection code by the sym53c8xx one, modulo
+ some minor changes. The driver can now attach any number of
+ controllers (>40) and does no longer hoger stack space at
+ initialisation.
+ - Definitely disable overlapped PCI arbitration for all dual
+ function chips, since I cannot make sure for what chip revisions
+ it is actually safe.
+ - Add support for the SYM53C1510D.
+ - Update the poor Tekram sync factor table.
+ - Remove the compilation condition about having to acquire the
+ io_request_lock since it seems to be a definite feature now.:)
+ - proc_dir structure no longer needed for kernel >= 2.3.27.
+
+Sat Sep 11 18:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2c
+ - Handle correctly (hopefully) jiffies wrap-around.
+ - Restore the entry used to detect 875 until revision 0xff.
+ (I removed it inadvertently, it seems :) )
+ - Replace __initfunc() which is deprecated stuff by __init which
+ is not yet so. ;-)
+ - Add support of some 'resource handling' for linux-2.3.13.
+ Basically the BARs have been changed to something more complex
+ in the pci_dev structure.
+ - Remove some deprecated code.
+
+Sat May 10 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision pre-3.2b-1
+ - Support for the 53C895A by Pamela Delaney <pam.delaney@lsil.com>
+ The 53C895A contains all of the features of the 896 but has only
+ one channel and has a 32 bit PCI bus. It does 64 bit PCI addressing
+ using dual cycle PCI data transfers.
+ - Miscellaneous minor fixes.
+ - Some additions to the README.ncr53c8xx file.
+
+Sun Apr 11 10:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2a
+ - Add 'hostid:#id' boot option. This option allows to change the
+ default SCSI id the driver uses for controllers.
+ - Remove nvram layouts and driver set-up structures from the C source,
+ and use the one defined in sym53c8xx_defs.h file.
+ (shared by both drivers).
+ - Set for now MAX LUNS to 16 (instead of 8).
+
+Thu Mar 11 23:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.2 (8xx-896 driver bundle)
+ - Only define the host template in ncr53c8xx.h and include the
+ sym53c8xx_defs.h file.
+ - Declare static all symbols that do not need to be visible from
+ outside the driver code.
+ - Add 'excl' boot command option that allows to pass to the driver
+ io address of devices not to attach.
+ - Add info() function called from the host template to print
+ driver/host information.
+ - Minor documentation additions.
+
+Sat Mar 6 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1h
+ - Fix some oooold bug that hangs the bus if a device rejects a
+ negotiation. Btw, the corresponding stuff also needed some cleanup
+ and thus the change is a bit larger than it could have been.
+ - Still some typo that made compilation fail for 64 bit (trivial fix).
+
+Sun Feb 14:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1g
+ - Deal correctly with 64 bit PCI address registers on Linux 2.2.
+ Pointed out by Leonard Zubkoff.
+ - Allow to tune request_irq() flags from the boot command line using
+ ncr53c8xx=irqm:??, as follows:
+ a) If bit 0x10 is set in irqm, IRQF_SHARED flag is not used.
+ b) If bit 0x20 is set in irqm, IRQF_DISABLED flag is not used.
+ By default the driver uses both IRQF_SHARED and IRQF_DISABLED.
+ Option 'ncr53c8xx=irqm:0x20' may be used when an IRQ is shared by
+ a 53C8XX adapter and a network board.
+ - Tiny misspelling fixed (ABORT instead of ABRT). Was fortunately
+ harmless.
+ - Negotiate SYNC data transfers with CCS devices.
+
+Sat Jan 16 17:30 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1f
+ - Some PCI fix-ups not needed any more for PPC (from Cort).
+ - Cache line size set to 16 DWORDS for Sparc (from DSM).
+ - Waiting list look-up didn't work for the first command of the list.
+ - Remove 2 useless lines of code.
+
+Sun Dec 13 18:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1e
+ - Same work-around as for the 53c876 rev <= 0x15 for 53c896 rev 1:
+ Disable overlapped arbitration. This will not make difference
+ since the chip has on-chip RAM.
+
+Thu Nov 26 22:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1d
+ - The SISL RAID change requires now remap_pci_mem() stuff to be
+ compiled for __i386__ when normal IOs are used.
+ - Minor spelling fixes in doc files.
+
+Sat Nov 21 18:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1c
+ - Ignore chips that are driven by SISL RAID (DAC 960).
+ Change sent by Leonard Zubkoff and slightly reworked.
+ - Still a buglet in the tags initial settings that needed to be fixed.
+ It was not possible to disable TGQ at system startup for devices
+ that claim TGQ support. The driver used at least 2 for the queue
+ depth but did'nt keep track of user settings for tags depth lower
+ than 2.
+
+Wed Nov 11 10:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1b
+ - The driver was unhappy when configured with default_tags > MAX_TAGS
+ Hopefully doubly-fixed.
+ - Update the Configure.help driver section that speaks of TAGS.
+
+Wed Oct 21 21:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.1a
+ - Changes from Eddie Dost for Sparc and Alpha:
+ ioremap/iounmap support for Sparc.
+ pcivtophys changed to bus_dvma_to_phys.
+ - Add the 53c876 description to the chip table. This is only useful
+ for printing the right name of the controller.
+ - DEL-441 Item 2 work-around for the 53c876 rev <= 5 (0x15).
+ - Add additional checking of INQUIRY data:
+ Check INQUIRY data received length is at least 7. Byte 7 of
+ inquiry data contains device features bits and the driver might
+ be confused by garbage. Also check peripheral qualifier.
+ - Cleanup of the SCSI tasks management:
+ Remove the special case for 32 tags. Now the driver only uses the
+ scheme that allows up to 64 tags per LUN.
+ Merge some code from the 896 driver.
+ Use a 1,3,5,...MAXTAGS*2+1 tag numbering. Previous driver could
+ use any tag number from 1 to 253 and some non conformant devices
+ might have problems with large tag numbers.
+ - 'no_sync' changed to 'no_disc' in the README file. This is an old
+ and trivial mistake that seems to demonstrate the README file is
+ not often read. :)
+
+Sun Oct 4 14:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0i
+ - Cosmetic changes for sparc (but not for the driver) that needs
+ __irq_itoa() to be used for printed IRQ value to be understandable.
+ - Some problems with the driver that didn't occur using driver 2.5f
+ were due to a SCSI selection problem triggered by a clearly
+ documented feature that in fact seems not to work: (53C8XX chips
+ are claimed by the manuals to be able to execute SCSI scripts just
+ after abitration while the SCSI core is performing SCSI selection).
+ This optimization is broken and has been removed.
+ - Some broken scsi devices are confused when a negotiation is started
+ on a LUN that does not correspond to a real device. According to
+ SCSI specs, this is a device firmware bug. This has been worked
+ around by only starting negotiation if the LUN has previously be
+ used for at least 1 successful SCSI command.
+ - The 'last message sent' printed out on M_REJECT message reception
+ was read from the SFBR i/o register after the previous message had
+ been sent.
+ This was not correct and affects all previous driver versions and
+ the original FreeBSD one as well. The SCSI scripts has been fixed
+ so that it now provides the right information to the C code.
+
+Sat Jul 18 13:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0g
+ - Preliminary fixes for Big Endian (sent by Eddie C. Dost).
+ Big Endian architectures should work again with the driver.
+ Eddie's patch has been partially applied since current 2.1.109
+ does not have all the Sparc changes of the vger tree.
+ - Use of BITS_PER_LONG instead of (~0UL == 0xffffffffUL) has fixed
+ the problem observed when the driver was compiled using EGCS or
+ PGCC.
+
+Mon Jul 13 20:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0f
+ - Some spelling fixes.
+ - linux/config.h misplaced in ncr53c8xx.h
+ - MODULE_PARM stuff added for linux 2.1.
+ - check INQUIRY response data format is exactly 2.
+ - use BITS_PER_LONG if defined.
+
+Sun Jun 28 12:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0e
+ - Some cleanup, spelling fixes, version checks, documentations
+ changes, etc ...
+
+Sat Jun 20 20:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0c
+ - Add a boot setup option that allows to set up device queue depths
+ at boot-up. This option is very useful since Linux does not
+ allow to change scsi device queue depth once the system has been
+ booted up.
+
+Sun Jun 15 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0a
+ - Support for up to 64 TAGS per LUN.
+ - Rewrite the TARGET vs LUN capabilities management.
+ CmdQueue is now handled as a LUN capability as it shall be.
+ This also fixes a bug triggered when disabling tagged command
+ queuing for a device that had this feature enabled.
+ - Remove the ncr_opennings() stuff that was useless under Linux
+ and hard to understand to me.
+ - Add "setverbose" procfs driver command. It allows to tune
+ verbose level after boot-up. Setting this level to zero, for
+ example avoid flooding the syslog file.
+ - Add KERN_XXX to some printk's.
+
+Tue Jun 10 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 3.0
+ - Linux config changes for 2.0.34:
+ Remove NVRAM detection config option. This option is now enabled
+ by default but can be disabled by editing the driver header file.
+ Add a PROFILE config option.
+ - Update Configure.help
+ - Add calls to new function mdelay() for milli-seconds delay if
+ kernel version >= 2.1.105.
+ - Replace all printf(s) by printk(s). After all, the ncr53c8xx is
+ a driver for Linux.
+ - Perform auto-sense on COMMAND TERMINATED. Not sure it is useful.
+ - Some other minor changes.
+
+Tue Jun 4 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6n
+ - Code cleanup and simplification:
+ Remove kernel 1.2.X and 1.3.X support.
+ Remove the _old_ target capabilities table.
+ Remove the error recovery code that have'nt been really useful.
+ Use a single alignment boundary (CACHE_LINE_SIZE) for data
+ structures.
+ - Several aggressive SCRIPTS optimizations and changes:
+ Reselect SCRIPTS code rewritten.
+ Support for selection/reselection without ATN.
+ And some others.
+ - Miscallaneous changes in the C code:
+ Count actual number of CCB queued to the controller (future use).
+ Lots of other minor changes.
+
+Wed May 13 20:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6m
+ - Problem of missed SCSI bus reset with the 53C895 fixed by
+ Richard Waltham. The 53C895 needs about 650 us for the bus
+ mode to settle. Delays used while resetting the controller
+ and the bus have been adjusted. Thanks Richard!
+ - Some simplification for 64 bit arch done ccb address testing.
+ - Add a check of the MSG_OUT phase after Selection with ATN.
+ - The new tagged queue stuff seems ok, so some informationnal
+ message have been conditionned by verbose >= 3.
+ - Donnot reset if a SBMC interrupt reports the same bus mode.
+ - Print out the whole driver set-up. Some options were missing and
+ the print statement was misplaced for modules.
+ - Ignore a SCSI parity interrupt if the chip is not connected to
+ the SCSI bus.
+
+Sat May 1 16:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6l
+ - Add CCB done queue support for Alpha and perhaps some other
+ architectures.
+ - Add some barriers to enforce memory ordering for x86 and
+ Alpha architectures.
+ - Fix something that looks like an old bug in the nego SIR
+ interrupt code in case of negotiation failure.
+
+Sat Apr 25 21:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6k
+ - Remove all accesses to the on-chip RAM from the C code:
+ Use SCRIPTS to load the on-chip RAM.
+ Use SCRIPTS to repair the start queue on selection timeout.
+ Use the copy of script in main memory to calculate the chip
+ context on phase mismatch.
+ - The above allows now to use the on-chip RAM without requiring
+ to get access to the on-chip RAM from the C code. This makes
+ on-chip RAM useable for linux-1.2.13 and for Linux-Alpha for
+ instance.
+ - Some simplifications and cleanups in the SCRIPTS and C code.
+ - Buglet fixed in parity error recovery SCRIPTS (never tested).
+ - Minor updates in README.ncr53c8xx.
+
+Wed Apr 15 21:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6j
+ - Incorporate changes from linux-2.1.95 ncr53c8xx driver version.
+ - Add SMP support for linux-2.1.95 and above.
+ - Fix a bug when QUEUE FULL is returned and no commands are
+ disconnected. This happens with Atlas I / L912 and may happen
+ with Atlas II / LXY4.
+ - Nail another one on CHECK condition when requeuing the command
+ for auto-sense.
+ - Call scsi_done() for all completed commands after interrupt
+ handling.
+ - Increase the done queue to 24 entries.
+
+Sat Apr 4 20:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6i
+ - CTEST0 is used by the 53C885 for Power Management and
+ priority setting between the 2 functions.
+ Use SDID instead as actual target number. Just have had to
+ overwrite it with SSID on reselection.
+ - Split DATA_IN and DATA_OUT scripts into 2 sub-scripts.
+ 64 segments are moved from on-chip RAM scripts.
+ If more segments, a script in main memory is used for the
+ additional segments.
+ - Since the SCRIPTS processor continues SCRIPTS execution after
+ having won arbitration, do some stuff prior to testing any SCSI
+ phase on reselection. This should have the vertue to process
+ scripts in parallel with the SCSI core performing selection.
+ - Increase the done queue to 12 entries.
+
+Sun Mar 29 12:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6h
+ - Some fixes.
+
+Tue Mar 26 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6g
+ - New done queue. 8 entries by default (6 always useable).
+ Can be increased if needed.
+ - Resources management using doubly linked queues.
+ - New auto-sense and QUEUE FULL handling that does not need to
+ stall the NCR queue any more.
+ - New CCB starvation avoiding algorithm.
+ - Prepare CCBs for SCSI commands that cannot be queued, instead of
+ inserting these commands into the waiting list. The waiting list
+ is now only used while resetting and when memory for CCBs is not
+ yet available?
+
+Sun Feb 8 22:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6f
+ - Some fixes in order to really support the 53C895, at least with
+ FAST-20 devices.
+ - Heavy changes in the target/lun resources management to allow
+ the scripts to jump directly to the CCB on reselection instead
+ of walking on the lun CCBs list. Up to 32 tags per lun are now
+ supported without script processor and PCI traffic overhead.
+
+Sun Jan 11 22:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * revision 2.6d
+ - new (different ?) implementation of the start queue:
+ Use a simple CALL to a launch script in the CCB.
+ - implement a minimal done queue (1 entry :-) ).
+ this avoid scanning all CCBs on INT FLY (Only scan all CCBs, on
+ overflow). Hit ratio is better than 99.9 % on my system, so no
+ need to have a larger done queue.
+ - generalization of the restart of CCB on special condition as
+ Abort, QUEUE FULL, CHECK CONDITION.
+ This has been called 'silly scheduler'.
+ - make all the profiling code conditionned by a config option.
+ This spare some PCI traffic and C code when this feature is not
+ needed.
+ - handle more cleanly the situation where direction is unknown.
+ The pointers patching is now performed by the SCRIPTS processor.
+ - remove some useless scripts instructions.
+
+ Ported from driver 2.5 series:
+ ------------------------------
+ - Use FAST-5 instead of SLOW for slow scsi devices according to
+ new SPI-2 draft.
+ - Make some changes in order to accommodate with 875 rev <= 3
+ device errata listing 397. Minor consequences are:
+ . Leave use of PCI Write and Invalidate under user control.
+ Now, by default the driver does not enable PCI MWI and option
+ 'specf:y' is required in order to enable this feature.
+ . Memory Read Line is not enabled for 875 and 875-like chips.
+ . Programmed burst length set to 64 DWORDS (instead of 128).
+ (Note: SYMBIOS uses 32 DWORDS for the SDMS BIOS)
+ - Add 'buschk' boot option.
+ This option enables checking of SCSI BUS data lines after SCSI
+ RESET (set by default). (Submitted by Richard Waltham).
+ - Update the README file.
+ - Dispatch CONDITION MET and RESERVATION CONFLICT scsi status
+ as OK driver status.
+ - Update the README file and the Symbios NVRAM format definition
+ with removable media flags values (available with SDMS 4.09).
+ - Several PCI configuration registers fix-ups for powerpc.
+ (Patch sent by Cort).

+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.3c
+ - Ensure LEDC bit in GPCNTL is cleared when reading the NVRAM.
+ Fix sent by Stig Telfer <stig@api-networks.com>.
+ - Backport from SYM-2 the work-around that allows to support
+ hardwares that fail PCI parity checking.
+ - Check that we received at least 8 bytes of INQUIRY response
+ for byte 7, that contains device capabilities, to be valid.
+ - Define scsi_set_pci_device() as nil for kernel < 2.4.4.
+ - + A couple of minor changes.
+
+Sat Apr 7 19:30 2001 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.3b
+ - Fix an unaligned LOAD from scripts (was used as dummy read).
+ - In ncr_soft_reset(), only try to ABORT the current operation
+ for chips that support SRUN bit in ISTAT1 and if SCRIPTS are
+ currently running, as 896 and 1010 manuals suggest.
+ - In the CCB abort path, do not assume that the CCB is currently
+ queued to SCRIPTS. This is not always true, notably after a
+ QUEUE FULL status or when using untagged commands.
+
+Sun Mar 4 18:30 2001 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.3a
+ - Fix an issue in the ncr_int_udc() (unexpected disconnect)
+ handling. If the DSA didn't match a CCB, a bad write to
+ memory could happen.
+
+Mon Feb 12 22:30 2001 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.3
+ - Support for hppa.
+ Tiny patch sent to me by Robert Hirst.
+ - Tiny patch for ia64 sent to me by Pamela Delaney.
+
+Tue Feb 6 13:30 2001 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.3-pre1
+ - Call pci_enable_device() as AC wants this to be done.
+ - Get both the BAR cookies used by CPU and actual PCI BAR
+ values used from SCRIPTS. Recent PCI chips are able to
+ access themselves using internal cycles, but they compare
+ BAR values to destination address to make decision.
+ Earlier chips simply use PCI transactions to access IO
+ registers from SCRIPTS.
+ The bus_dvma_to_mem() interface that reverses the actual
+ PCI BAR value from the BAR cookie is now useless.
+ This point had been discussed at the list and the solution
+ got approved by PCI code maintainer (Martin Mares).
+ - Merge changes for linux-2.4 that declare the host template
+ in the driver object also when the driver is statically
+ linked with the kernel.
+ - Increase SCSI message size up to 12 bytes, given that 8
+ bytes was not enough for the PPR message (fix).
+ - Add field 'maxoffs_st' (max offset for ST data transfers).
+ The C1010 supports offset 62 in DT mode but only 31 in
+ ST mode, to 2 different values for the max SCSI offset
+ are needed. Replace the obviously wrong masking of the
+ offset against 0x1f for ST mode by a lowering to
+ maxoffs_st of the SCSI offset in ST mode.
+ - Refine a work-around for the C1010-66. Revision 1 does
+ not requires extra cycles in DT DATA OUT phase.
+ - Add a missing endian-ization (abrt_tbl.addr).
+ - Minor clean-up in the np structure for fields accessed
+ from SCRIPTS that requires special alignments.
+
+Sun Sep 24 21:30 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.2
+ - Remove the hack for PPC added in previous driver version.
+ - Add FE_DAC feature bit to distinguish between 64 bit PCI
+ addressing (FE_DAC) and 64 bit PCI interface (FE_64BIT).
+ - Get rid of the boot command line "ultra:" argument.
+ This parameter wasn't that clever since we can use "sync:"
+ for Ultra/Ultra2 settings, and for Ultra3 we may want to
+ pass PPR options (for now only DT clocking).
+ - Add FE_VARCLK feature bit that indicates that SCSI clock
+ frequency may vary depending on board design and thus,
+ the driver should try to evaluate the SCSI clock.
+ - Simplify the way the driver determine the SCSI clock:
+ ULTRA3 -> 160 MHz, ULTRA2 -> 80 MHz otherwise 40 MHz.
+ Measure the SCSI clock frequency if FE_VARCLK is set.
+ - Remove FE_CLK80 feature bit that got useless.
+ - Add support for the SYM53C875A (Pamela Delaney).
+
+Wed Jul 26 23:30 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.1
+ - Provide OpenFirmware path through the proc FS on PPC.
+ - Download of on-chip SRAM using memcpy_toio() doesn't work
+ on PPC. Restore previous method (MEMORY MOVE from SCRIPTS).
+ - Remove trailing argument #2 from a couple of #undefs.
+
+Sun Jul 09 16:30 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.7.0
+ - Remove the PROFILE C and SCRIPTS code.
+ This facility was not this useful and thus was not longer
+ desirable given the increasing complexity of the driver code.
+ - Merges from FreeBSD sym-1.6.2 driver:
+ * Clarify memory barriers needed by the driver for architectures
+ that implement a weak memory ordering.
+ * Simpler handling of illegal phases and data overrun from
+ SCRIPTS. These errors are now immediately reported to
+ the C code by an interrupt.
+ * Sync the residual handling code with sym-1.6.2 and now
+ report `resid' to user for linux version >= 2.3.99
+ - General cleanup:
+ Move definitions for barriers and IO/MMIO operations to the
+ sym53c8xx_defs.h header files. They are now shared by the
+ both drivers.
+ Remove unused options that claimed to optimize for the 896.
+ If fact, they were not this clever. :)
+ Use SCSI_NCR_IOMAPPED instead of NCR_IOMAPPED.
+ Remove a couple of unused fields from data structures.
+
+Thu May 11 12:40 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.6b
+ - Merged version.
+
+Mon Apr 24 12:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5m
+ - Return value 1 (instead of 0) from the driver setup routine.
+ - Do not enable PCI DAC cycles. This just broke support for
+ SYM534C896 on sparc64. Problem fixed by David S. Miller.
+
+Fri Apr 14 9:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.6b-9
+ - Added 53C1010_66 support.
+ - Small fix to integrity checking code.
+ - Removed requirement for integrity checking if want to run
+ at ultra 3.
+
+Sat Apr 1 12:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5l
+ - Tiny change for __sparc__ appeared in 2.3.99-pre4.1 that
+ applies to cache line size (? Probably from David S Miller).
+ - Make sure no data transfer will happen for Scsi_Cmnd requests
+ that supply SCSI_DATA_NONE direction (this avoids some BUG()
+ statement in the PCI code when a data buffer is also supplied).
+
+Sat Mar 11 12:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.6b-5
+ - Test against expected data transfer direction from SCRIPTS.
+ - Add support for the new dynamic dma mapping kernel interface.
+ Requires Linux-2.3.47 (tested with pre-2.3.47-6).
+ Many thanks to David S. Miller for his preliminary changes
+ that have been useful guidelines.
+ - Get data transfer direction from the scsi command structure
+ (Scsi_Cmnd) with kernels that provide this information.
+
+Mon Mar 6 23:30 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5k
+ - Test against expected data transfer direction from SCRIPTS.
+ - Revert the change in 'ncr_flush_done_cmds()' but unmap the
+ scsi dma buffer prior to queueing the command to our done
+ list.
+ - Miscellaneous (minor) fixes in the code added in driver
+ version 1.5j.
+
+Mon Feb 14 4:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-pre-1.6b-2.
+ - Updated the SCRIPTS error handling of the SWIDE
+ condition - to remove any reads of the sbdl
+ register. Changes needed because the 896 and 1010
+ chips will check parity in some special circumstances.
+ This will cause a parity error interrupt if not in
+ data phase. Changes based on those made in the
+ FreeBSD driver version 1.3.2.
+
+Sun Feb 20 11:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5j
+ - Add support for the new dynamic dma mapping kernel interface.
+ Requires Linux-2.3.47 (tested with pre-2.3.47-6).
+ Many thanks to David S. Miller for his preliminary changes
+ that have been useful guidelines, for having reviewed the
+ code and having tested this driver version on Ultra-Sparc.
+ - 2 tiny bugs fixed in the PCI wrapper that provides support
+ for early kernels without pci device structure.
+ - Get data transfer direction from the scsi command structure
+ (Scsi_Cmnd) with kernels that provide this information.
+ - Fix an old bug that only affected 896 rev. 1 when driver
+ profile support option was set in kernel configuration.
+
+Fri Jan 14 14:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-pre-1.6b-1.
+ - Merge parallel driver series 1.61 and 1.5e
+
+Tue Jan 11 14:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.61
+ - Added support for mounting disks on wide-narrow-wide
+ scsi configurations.
+ - Modified offset to be a maximum of 31 in ST mode,
+ 62 in DT mode.
+ - Based off of 1.60
+
+Mon Jan 10 10:00 2000 Pam Delaney (pam.delaney@lsil.com)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.60
+ - Added capability to use the integrity checking code
+ in the kernel (optional).
+ - Added PPR negotiation.
+ - Added support for 53C1010 Ultra 3 part.
+ - Based off of 1.5f
+
+Sat Jan 8 22:00 2000 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5h
+ - Add year 2000 copyright.
+ - Display correctly bus signals when bus is detected wrong.
+ - Some fix for Sparc from DSM that went directly to kernel tree.
+
+Mon Dec 6 22:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5g
+ - Change messages written by the driver at initialisation and
+ through the /proc FS (rather cosmetic changes that consist in
+ printing out the PCI bus number and PCI device/function).
+ - Ensure the SCRIPTS processor is stopped while calibrating the
+ SCSI clock (the initialisation code has been a bit reworked).
+ Change moved to the FreeBSD sym_hipd driver).
+ - Some fixes in the MODIFY_DP/IGN_RESIDUE code and residual
+ calculation (moved from FreeBSD sym_hipd driver).
+ - Add NVRAM support for Tekram boards that use 24C16 EEPROM.
+ Code moved from the FreeBSD sym_hipd driver, since it has
+ been that one that got this feature first.
+ - Definitely disable overlapped PCI arbitration for all dual
+ function chips, since I cannot make sure for what chip revisions
+ it is actually safe.
+ - Add support for the SYM53C1510D (also for ncr53c8xx).
+ - Fix up properly the PCI latency timer when needed or asked for.
+ - Get rid of the old PCI bios interface, but preserve kernel 2.0
+ compatibility from a simple wrapper.
+ - Update the poor Tekram sync factor table.
+ - Fix in a tiny 'printk' bug that may oops in case of extended
+ errors (unrecovered parity error, data overrun, etc ...)
+ (Sent by Pamela Delaney from LSILOGIC)
+ - Remove the compilation condition about having to acquire the
+ io_request_lock since it seems to be a definite feature now.:)
+ - Change get_pages by GetPages since Linux >= 2.3.27 now wants
+ get_pages to ever be used as a kernel symbol (from 2.3.27).
+ - proc_dir structure no longer needed for kernel >= 2.3.27.
+
+Sun Oct 3 19:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5f
+ - Change the way the driver checks the PCI clock frequency, so
+ that overclocked PCI BUS up to 48 MHz will not be refused.
+ The more the BUS is overclocked, the less the driver will
+ guarantee that its measure of the SCSI clock is correct.
+ - Backport some minor improvements of SCRIPTS from the sym_hipd
+ driver.
+ - Backport the code rewrite of the START QUEUE dequeuing (on
+ bad scsi status received) from the sym_hipd driver.
+
+Sat Sep 11 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5e
+ - New linux-2.3.13 __setup scheme support added.
+ - Cleanup of the extended error status handling:
+ Use 1 bit per error type.
+ - Also save the extended error status prior to auto-sense.
+ - Add the FE_DIFF chip feature bit to indicate support of
+ diff probing from GPIO3 (825/825A/876/875).
+ - Remove the quirk handling that has been useless since day one.
+ - Work-around PCI chips being reported twice on some platforms.
+ - Add some redundant PCI reads in order to deal with common
+ bridge misbehaviour regarding posted write flushing.
+ - Add some other conditionnal code for people who have to deal
+ with really broken bridges (they will have to edit a source
+ file to try these options).
+ - Handle correctly (hopefully) jiffies wrap-around.
+ - Restore the entry used to detect 875 until revision 0xff.
+ (I removed it inadvertently, it seems :) )
+ - Replace __initfunc() which is deprecated stuff by __init which
+ is not yet so. ;-)
+ - Rewrite the MESSAGE IN scripts more generic by using a MOVE
+ table indirect. Extended messages of any size are accepted now.
+ (Size is limited to 8 for now, but a constant is just to be
+ increased if necessary)
+ - Fix some bug in the fully untested MDP handling:) and share
+ some code between MDP handling and residual calculation.
+ - Calculate the data transfer residual as the 2's complement
+ integer (A positive value in returned on data overrun, and
+ a negative one on underrun).
+ - Add support of some 'resource handling' for linux-2.3.13.
+ Basically the BARs have been changed to something more complex
+ in the pci_dev structure.
+ - Remove some deprecated code.
+
+Sat Jun 5 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5c
+ - Do not negotiate on auto-sense if we are currently using 8 bit
+ async transfer for the target.
+ - Only check for SISL/RAID on i386 platforms.
+ (A problem has been reported on PPC with that code).
+ - On MSG REJECT for a negotiation, the driver attempted to restart
+ the SCRIPT processor when this one was already running.
+
+Sat May 29 12:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5b
+ - Force negotiation prior auto-sense.
+ This ensures that the driver will be able to grab the sense data
+ from a device that has received a BUS DEVICE RESET message from
+ another initiator.
+ - Complete all disconnected CCBs for a logical UNIT if we are told
+ about a UNIT ATTENTION for a RESET condition by this target.
+ - Add the control command 'cleardev' that allows to send a ABORT
+ message to a logical UNIT (for test purpose).
+
+Tue May 25 23:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5a
+ - Add support for task abort and bus device reset SCSI message
+ and implement proper synchonisation with SCRIPTS to handle
+ correctly task abortion without races.
+ - Send an ABORT message (if untagged) or ABORT TAG message (if tagged)
+ when the driver is told to abort a command that is disconnected and
+ complete the command with appropriate error.
+ If the aborted command is not yet started, remove it from the start
+ queue and complete it with error.
+ - Add the control command 'resetdev' that allows to send a BUS
+ DEVICE RESET message to a target (for test purpose).
+ - Clean-up some unused or useless code.
+
+Fri May 21 23:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.5
+ - Add support for CHMOV with Wide controllers.
+ - Handling of the SWIDE (low byte residue at the end of a CHMOV
+ in DATA IN phase with WIDE transfer when the byte count gets odd).
+ - Handling of the IGNORE WIDE RESIDUE message.
+ Handled from SCRIPTS as possible with some optimizations when both
+ a wide device and the controller are odd at the same time (SWIDE
+ present and IGNORE WIDE RESIDUE message on the BUS at the same time).
+ - Check against data OVERRUN/UNDERRUN condition at the end of a data
+ transfer, whatever a SWIDE is present (OVERRUN in DATA IN phase)
+ or the SODL is full (UNDERRUN in DATA out phase).
+ - Handling of the MODIFY DATA POINTER message.
+ This one cannot be handled from SCRIPTS, but hopefully it will not
+ happen very often. :)
+ - Large rewrite of the SCSI MESSAGE handling.
+
+Sun May 9 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.4
+ - Support for IMMEDIATE ARBITRATION.
+ See the README file for detailed information about this feature.
+ Requires both a compile option and a boot option.
+ - Minor SCRIPTS optimization in reselection pattern for LUN 0.
+ - Simpler algorithm to deal with SCSI command starvation.
+ Just use 2 tag counters in flip/flop and switch to the other
+ one every 3 seconds.
+ - Do some work in SCRIPTS after the SELECT instruction and prior
+ to testing for a PHASE. SYMBIOS say this feature is working fine.
+ (Btw, only problems with Toshiba 3401B had been reported).
+ - Measure the PCI clock speed and do not attach controllers if
+ result is greater than 37 MHz. Since the precision of the
+ algorithm (from Stefan Esser) is better than 2%, this should
+ be fine.
+ - Fix the misdetection of SYM53C875E (was detected as a 876).
+ - Fix the misdetection of SYM53C810 not A (was detected as a 810A).
+ - Support for up to 256 TAGS per LUN (CMD_PER_LUN).
+ Currently limited to 255 due to Linux limitation. :)
+ - Support for up to 508 active commands (CAN_QUEUE).
+ - Support for the 53C895A by Pamela Delaney <pam.delaney@lsil.com>
+ The 53C895A contains all of the features of the 896 but has only
+ one channel and has a 32 bit PCI bus. It does 64 bit PCI addressing
+ using dual cycle PCI data transfers.
+ - Miscellaneous minor fixes.
+ - Some additions to the README.ncr53c8xx file.
+
+Tue Apr 15 10:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.3e
+ - Support for any number of LUNs (64) (SPI2-compliant).
+ (Btw, this may only be ever useful under linux-2.2 ;-))
+
+Sun Apr 11 10:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.3d
+ - Add 'hostid:#id' boot option. This option allows to change the
+ default SCSI id the driver uses for controllers.
+ - Make SCRIPTS not use self-mastering for PCI.
+ There were still 2 places the driver used this feature of the
+ 53C8XX family.
+ - Move some data structures (nvram layouts and driver set-up) to
+ the sym53c8xx_defs.h file. So, the both drivers will share them.
+ - Set MAX LUNS to 16 (instead of 8).
+
+Sat Mar 20 21:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.3b
+ - Add support for NCR PQS PDS.
+ James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@columbiasc.ncr.com>
+ - Allow value 0 for host ID.
+ - Support more than 8 controllers (> 40 in fact :-) )
+ - Add 'excl=#ioaddr' boot option: exclude controller.
+ (Version 1.3a driver)
+
+Thu Mar 11 23:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.3 (8xx-896 driver bundle)
+ - Equivalent changes as ncr53c8xx-3.2 due to the driver bundle.
+ (See Changelog.ncr53c8xx)
+ - Do a normal soft reset as first chip reset, since aborting current
+ operation may raise an interrupt we are not able to handle since
+ the interrupt handler is not yet established.
+
+Sat Mar 6 11:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.2b
+ - Fix some oooold bug that hangs the bus if a device rejects a
+ negotiation. Btw, the corresponding stuff also needed some cleanup
+ and thus the change is a bit larger than it could have been.
+ - Still some typo that made compilation fail for 64 bit (trivial fix).
+
+Sun Feb 21 20:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.2a
+ - The rewrite of the interrupt handling broke the SBMC interrupt
+ handling due to a 1 bit mask tiny error. Hopefully fixed.
+ - If INQUIRY came from a scatter list, the driver looked into
+ the scatterlist instead of the data.:) Since this should never
+ happen, we just discard the data if use_sg is not zero.
+
+Fri Feb 12 23:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.2
+ - Major rewrite of the interrupt handling and recovery stuff for
+ the support of non compliant SCSI removal, insertion and all
+ kinds of screw-up that may happen on the SCSI BUS.
+ Hopefully, the driver is now unbreakable or may-be, it is just
+ quite brocken. :-)
+ Many thanks to Johnson Russel (Symbios) for having responded to
+ my questions and for his interesting advices and comments about
+ support of SCSI hot-plug.
+ - Add 'recovery' option to driver set-up.
+ - Negotiate SYNC data transfers with CCS devices.
+ - Deal correctly with 64 bit PCI address registers on Linux 2.2.
+ Pointed out by Leonard Zubkoff.
+
+Sun Jan 31 18:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.1a
+ - Some 896 chip revisions (all for now :-)), may hang-up if the
+ soft reset bit is set at the wrong time while SCRIPTS are running.
+ We need to first abort the current SCRIPTS operation prior to
+ resetting the chip. This fix has been sent to me by SYMBIOS/LSI
+ and I just translated it into ncr53c8xx syntax.
+ Must be considered 100 % trustable, unless I did some mistake
+ when translating it. :-)
+
+Sun Jan 24 18:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.1
+ - Major rewrite of the SCSI parity error handling.
+ The informations contained in the data manuals are incomplete about
+ this feature.
+ I asked SYMBIOS about and got in reply the explanations that are
+ _indeed_ missing in the data manuals.
+ - Allow to tune request_irq() flags from the boot command line using
+ ncr53c8xx=irqm:??, as follows:
+ a) If bit 0x10 is set in irqm, SA_SHIRQ flag is not used.
+ b) If bit 0x20 is set in irqm, SA_INTERRUPT flag is not used.
+ By default the driver uses both SA_SHIRQ and SA_INTERRUPT.
+ Option 'ncr53c8xx=irqm:0x20' may be used when an IRQ is shared by
+ a 53C8XX adapter and a network board.
+ - Fix for 64 bit PCI address register calculation. (Lance Robinson)
+ - Fix for big-endian in phase mismatch handling. (Michal Jaegermann)
+
+Fri Jan 1 20:00 1999 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.0a
+ - Waiting list look-up didn't work for the first command of the list.
+ Hopefully fixed, but tested on paper only. ;)
+ - Remove the most part of PPC specific code for Linux-2.2.
+ Thanks to Cort.
+ - Some other minors changes.
+
+Sat Dec 19 21:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version sym53c8xx-1.0
+ - Define some new IO registers for the 896 (istat1, mbox0, mbox1)
+ - Revamp slightly the Symbios NVRAM lay-out based on the excerpt of
+ the header file I received from Symbios.
+ - Check the PCI bus number for the boot order (Using a fast
+ PCI controller behing a PCI-PCI bridge seems sub-optimal).
+ - Disable overlapped PCI arbitration for the 896 revision 1.
+ - Reduce a bit the number of IO register reads for phase mismatch
+ by reading DWORDS at a time instead of BYTES.
+
+Thu Dec 3 24:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.18
+ - I received this afternoon a 896 from SYMBIOS and started testing
+ the driver with this beast. After having fixed 3 buglets, it worked
+ with all features enabled including the phase mismatch handling
+ from SCRIPTS. Since this feature is not yet tested enough, the
+ boot option 'ncr53c8xx=specf:1' is still required to enable the
+ driver to handle PM from SCRIPTS.
+
+Sun Nov 29 18:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.17
+ - The SISL RAID change requires now remap_pci_mem() stuff to be
+ compiled for __i386__ when normal IOs are used.
+ - The PCI memory read from SCRIPTS that should ensure ordering
+ was in fact misplaced. BTW, this may explain why broken PCI
+ device drivers regarding ordering are working so well. ;-)
+ - Rewrite ncr53c8xx_setup (boot command line options) since the
+ binary code was a bit too bloated in my opinion.
+ - Make the code simpler in the wakeup_done routine.
+
+Tue Nov 24 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.16
+ - Add SCSI_NCR_OPTIMIZE_896_1 compile option and 'optim' boot option.
+ When set, the driver unconditionnaly assumes that the interrupt
+ handler is called for command completion, then clears INTF, scans
+ the done queue and returns if some completed CCB is found. If no
+ completed CCB are found, interrupt handling will proceed normally.
+ With a 896 that handles MA from SCRIPTS, this can be a great win,
+ since the driver will never performs PCI read transactions, but
+ only PCI write transactions that may be posted.
+ If the driver haven't to also raise the SIGP this would be perfect.
+ Even with this penalty, I think that this will work great.
+ Obviously this optimization makes sense only if the IRQ is not
+ shared with another device.
+ - Still a buglet in the tags initial settings that needed to be fixed.
+ It was not possible to disable TGQ at system startup for devices
+ that claim TGQ support. The driver used at least 2 for the queue
+ depth but did'nt keep track of user settings for tags depth lower
+ than 2.
+
+Thu Nov 19 23:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.15
+ - Add support for hardware LED control of the 896.
+ - Ignore chips that are driven by SISL RAID (DAC 960).
+ Change sent by Leonard Zubkoff and slightly reworked.
+ - Prevent 810A rev 11 and 860 rev 1 from using cache line based
+ transactions since those early chip revisions may use such on
+ LOAD/STORE instructions (work-around).
+ - Remove some useless and bloat code from the pci init stuff.
+ - Do not use the readX()/writeX() kernel functions for __i386__,
+ since they perform useless masking operations in order to deal
+ with broken driver in 2.1.X kernel.
+
+Wed Nov 11 10:00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.14
+ - The driver was unhappy when configured with default_tags > MAX_TAGS
+ Hopefully doubly-fixed.
+ - Set PCI_PARITY in PCI_COMMAND register in not set (PCI fix-up).
+ - Print out some message if phase mismatch is handled from SCRIPTS.
+
+Sun Nov 1 14H00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.13
+ - Some rewrite of the device detection code. This code had been
+ patched too much and needed to be face-lifted a bit.
+ Remove all platform dependent fix-ups that was not needed or
+ conflicted with some other driver code as work-arounds.
+ Reread the NVRAM before the calling of ncr_attach(). This spares
+ stack space and so allows to handle more boards.
+ Handle 64 bit base addresses under linux-2.0.X.
+ Set MASTER bit in PCI COMMAND register if not set.
+
+Wed Oct 30 22H00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.12
+ - Damned! I just broke the driver for Alpha by leaving a stale
+ instruction in the source code. Hopefully fixed.
+ - Do not set PFEN when it is useless. Doing so we are sure that BOF
+ will be active, since the manual appears to be very unclear on what
+ feature is actually used by the chip when both PFEN and BOF are
+ set.
+
+Sat Oct 24 16H00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.11
+ - LOAD/STORE instructions were miscompiled for register offsets
+ beyond 0x7f. This broke accesses to 896' new registers.
+ - Disable by default Phase Mismatch handling from SCRIPTS, since
+ current 896 rev.1 seems not to operate safely with the driver
+ when this feature is enabled (and above LOAD/STORE fix applied).
+ I will change the default to 'enabled' when this problem will be
+ solved.
+ Using boot option 'ncr53c8xx=specf:1' enables this feature.
+ - Implement a work-around (DEL 472 - ITEM 5) that should allow the
+ driver to safely enable hardware phase mismatch with 896 rev. 1.
+
+Tue Oct 20 22H00 1998 Gerard Roudier (groudier@club-internet.fr)
+ * version pre-sym53c8xx-0.10
+ - Add the 53c876 description to the chip table. This is only useful
+ for printing the right name of the controller.
+ - Add additional checking of INQUIRY data:
+ Check INQUIRY data received length is at least 7. Byte 7 of
+ inquiry data contains device features bits and the driver might
+ be confused by garbage. Also check peripheral qualifier.
+ - Use a 1,3,5,...MAXTAGS*2+1 tag numbering. Previous driver could
+ use any tag number from 1 to 253 and some non conformant devices
+ might have problems with large tag numbers.
+ - Use NAME53C and NAME53C8XX for chip name prefix chip family name.
+ Just give a try using "sym53c" and "sym53c8xx" instead of "ncr53c"

+The BusLogic FlashPoint SCSI Host Adapters are now fully supported on Linux.
+The upgrade program described below has been officially terminated effective
+31 March 1997 since it is no longer needed.
+
+
+
+ MYLEX INTRODUCES LINUX OPERATING SYSTEM SUPPORT FOR ITS
+ BUSLOGIC FLASHPOINT LINE OF SCSI HOST ADAPTERS
+
+
+FREMONT, CA, -- October 8, 1996 -- Mylex Corporation has expanded Linux
+operating system support to its BusLogic brand of FlashPoint Ultra SCSI
+host adapters. All of BusLogic's other SCSI host adapters, including the
+MultiMaster line, currently support the Linux operating system. Linux
+drivers and information will be available on October 15th at
+http://sourceforge.net/projects/dandelion/.
+
+"Mylex is committed to supporting the Linux community," says Peter Shambora,
+vice president of marketing for Mylex. "We have supported Linux driver
+development and provided technical support for our host adapters for several
+years, and are pleased to now make our FlashPoint products available to this
+user base."
+
+The Linux Operating System
+
+Linux is a freely-distributed implementation of UNIX for Intel x86, Sun
+SPARC, SGI MIPS, Motorola 68k, Digital Alpha AXP and Motorola PowerPC
+machines. It supports a wide range of software, including the X Window
+System, Emacs, and TCP/IP networking. Further information is available at
+http://www.linux.org and http://www.ssc.com/.
+
+FlashPoint Host Adapters
+
+The FlashPoint family of Ultra SCSI host adapters, designed for workstation
+and file server environments, are available in narrow, wide, dual channel,
+and dual channel wide versions. These adapters feature SeqEngine
+automation technology, which minimizes SCSI command overhead and reduces
+the number of interrupts generated to the CPU.
+
+About Mylex

+ ANNOUNCEMENT
+ BusLogic FlashPoint LT/BT-948 Upgrade Program
+ 1 February 1996
+
+ ADDITIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT
+ BusLogic FlashPoint LW/BT-958 Upgrade Program
+ 14 June 1996
+
+Ever since its introduction last October, the BusLogic FlashPoint LT has
+been problematic for members of the Linux community, in that no Linux
+drivers have been available for this new Ultra SCSI product. Despite its
+officially being positioned as a desktop workstation product, and not being
+particularly well suited for a high performance multitasking operating
+system like Linux, the FlashPoint LT has been touted by computer system
+vendors as the latest thing, and has been sold even on many of their high
+end systems, to the exclusion of the older MultiMaster products. This has
+caused grief for many people who inadvertently purchased a system expecting
+that all BusLogic SCSI Host Adapters were supported by Linux, only to
+discover that the FlashPoint was not supported and would not be for quite
+some time, if ever.
+
+After this problem was identified, BusLogic contacted its major OEM
+customers to make sure the BT-946C/956C MultiMaster cards would still be
+made available, and that Linux users who mistakenly ordered systems with
+the FlashPoint would be able to upgrade to the BT-946C. While this helped
+many purchasers of new systems, it was only a partial solution to the
+overall problem of FlashPoint support for Linux users. It did nothing to
+assist the people who initially purchased a FlashPoint for a supported
+operating system and then later decided to run Linux, or those who had
+ended up with a FlashPoint LT, believing it was supported, and were unable
+to return it.
+
+In the middle of December, I asked to meet with BusLogic's senior
+management to discuss the issues related to Linux and free software support
+for the FlashPoint. Rumors of varying accuracy had been circulating
+publicly about BusLogic's attitude toward the Linux community, and I felt
+it was best that these issues be addressed directly. I sent an email
+message after 11pm one evening, and the meeting took place the next
+afternoon. Unfortunately, corporate wheels sometimes grind slowly,
+especially when a company is being acquired, and so it's taken until now
+before the details were completely determined and a public statement could
+be made.
+
+BusLogic is not prepared at this time to release the information necessary
+for third parties to write drivers for the FlashPoint. The only existing
+FlashPoint drivers have been written directly by BusLogic Engineering, and
+there is no FlashPoint documentation sufficiently detailed to allow outside
+developers to write a driver without substantial assistance. While there
+are people at BusLogic who would rather not release the details of the
+FlashPoint architecture at all, that debate has not yet been settled either
+way. In any event, even if documentation were available today it would
+take quite a while for a usable driver to be written, especially since I'm
+not convinced that the effort required would be worthwhile.
+
+However, BusLogic does remain committed to providing a high performance
+SCSI solution for the Linux community, and does not want to see anyone left
+unable to run Linux because they have a Flashpoint LT. Therefore, BusLogic
+has put in place a direct upgrade program to allow any Linux user worldwide
+to trade in their FlashPoint LT for the new BT-948 MultiMaster PCI Ultra
+SCSI Host Adapter. The BT-948 is the Ultra SCSI successor to the BT-946C
+and has all the best features of both the BT-946C and FlashPoint LT,
+including smart termination and a flash PROM for easy firmware updates, and
+is of course compatible with the present Linux driver. The price for this
+upgrade has been set at US $45 plus shipping and handling, and the upgrade
+program will be administered through BusLogic Technical Support, which can
+be reached by electronic mail at techsup@buslogic.com, by Voice at +1 408
+654-0760, or by FAX at +1 408 492-1542.
+
+As of 14 June 1996, the original BusLogic FlashPoint LT to BT-948 upgrade
+program has now been extended to encompass the FlashPoint LW Wide Ultra
+SCSI Host Adapter. Any Linux user worldwide may trade in their FlashPoint
+LW (BT-950) for a BT-958 MultiMaster PCI Ultra SCSI Host Adapter. The
+price for this upgrade has been set at US $65 plus shipping and handling.
+
+I was a beta test site for the BT-948/958, and versions 1.2.1 and 1.3.1 of
+my BusLogic driver already included latent support for the BT-948/958.
+Additional cosmetic support for the Ultra SCSI MultiMaster cards was added
+subsequent releases. As a result of this cooperative testing process,
+several firmware bugs were found and corrected. My heavily loaded Linux
+test system provided an ideal environment for testing error recovery
+processes that are much more rarely exercised in production systems, but
+are crucial to overall system stability. It was especially convenient
+being able to work directly with their firmware engineer in demonstrating
+the problems under control of the firmware debugging environment; things
+sure have come a long way since the last time I worked on firmware for an
+embedded system. I am presently working on some performance testing and
+expect to have some data to report in the not too distant future.
+
+BusLogic asked me to send this announcement since a large percentage of the
+questions regarding support for the FlashPoint have either been sent to me
+directly via email, or have appeared in the Linux newsgroups in which I
+participate. To summarize, BusLogic is offering Linux users an upgrade
+from the unsupported FlashPoint LT (BT-930) to the supported BT-948 for US
+$45 plus shipping and handling, or from the unsupported FlashPoint LW
+(BT-950) to the supported BT-958 for $65 plus shipping and handling.
+Contact BusLogic Technical Support at techsup@buslogic.com or +1 408
+654-0760 to take advantage of their offer.

+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ Version 2, June 1991
+
+ Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
+ 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+
+ Preamble
+
+ The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
+freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
+General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
+Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
+using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
+the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
+your programs, too.
+
+ When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
+price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
+have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
+this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
+if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
+in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
+
+ To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
+
+ For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
+you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
+source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
+rights.
+
+ We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
+distribute and/or modify the software.
+
+ Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
+authors' reputations.
+
+ Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
+patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
+program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
+program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
+patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
+
+ The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+modification follow.
+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
+
+ 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
+a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
+under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
+refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
+means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
+that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
+either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
+language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
+the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
+
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
+running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
+is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
+Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
+Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
+
+ 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
+source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
+conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
+copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
+notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
+and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
+along with the Program.
+
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
+you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
+
+ 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
+of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
+distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
+above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
+
+ a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
+ stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
+
+ b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
+ whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
+ part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
+ parties under the terms of this License.
+
+ c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
+ when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
+ interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
+ announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
+ notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
+ a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
+ these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
+ License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
+ does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
+ the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
+
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
+identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
+and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
+themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
+sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
+distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
+on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
+this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
+entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
+
+Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
+your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
+exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
+collective works based on the Program.
+
+In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
+with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
+a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
+the scope of this License.
+
+ 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
+under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
+Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+
+ a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
+ source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
+ 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
+ years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
+ cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
+ machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
+ distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
+ customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
+ to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
+ allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
+ received the program in object code or executable form with such
+ an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
+
+The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
+making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
+code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
+associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
+control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
+special exception, the source code distributed need not include
+anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
+form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
+operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
+itself accompanies the executable.
+
+If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
+access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
+access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
+distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
+compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
+
+ 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
+except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
+otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
+void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
+However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
+this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
+parties remain in full compliance.
+
+ 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
+signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
+distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
+prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
+modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
+all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
+the Program or works based on it.
+
+ 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
+original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
+these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
+restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
+You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
+this License.
+
+ 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
+infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
+conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
+otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
+excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
+distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
+License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
+may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
+license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
+all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
+the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
+refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
+
+If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
+any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
+apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
+circumstances.
+
+It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
+patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
+such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
+integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
+implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
+generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
+through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
+system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
+to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
+impose that choice.
+
+This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
+be a consequence of the rest of this License.
+
+ 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
+certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
+original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
+may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
+those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
+countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
+the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
+
+ 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
+of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
+be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
+address new problems or concerns.
+
+Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
+specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
+later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
+either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
+Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
+this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
+Foundation.
+
+ 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
+programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
+to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
+Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
+make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
+of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
+of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
+
+ NO WARRANTY
+
+ 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
+FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
+OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
+PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
+OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
+MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
+TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
+PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
+REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
+
+ 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
+WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
+REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
+INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
+OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
+TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
+YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
+PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
+POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

+Copyright (c) 2003-2012 QLogic Corporation
+QLogic Linux iSCSI Driver
+
+This program includes a device driver for Linux 3.x.
+You may modify and redistribute the device driver code under the
+GNU General Public License (a copy of which is attached hereto as
+Exhibit A) published by the Free Software Foundation (version 2).
+
+
+EXHIBIT A
+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ Version 2, June 1991
+
+ Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
+ 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+
+ Preamble
+
+ The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
+freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
+General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
+Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
+using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
+the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
+your programs, too.
+
+ When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
+price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
+have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
+this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
+if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
+in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
+
+ To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
+
+ For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
+you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
+source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
+rights.
+
+ We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
+distribute and/or modify the software.
+
+ Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
+authors' reputations.
+
+ Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
+patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
+program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
+program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
+patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
+
+ The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+modification follow.
+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
+
+ 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
+a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
+under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
+refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
+means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
+that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
+either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
+language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
+the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
+
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
+running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
+is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
+Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
+Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
+
+ 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
+source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
+conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
+copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
+notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
+and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
+along with the Program.
+
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
+you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
+
+ 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
+of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
+distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
+above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
+
+ a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
+ stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
+
+ b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
+ whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
+ part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
+ parties under the terms of this License.
+
+ c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
+ when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
+ interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
+ announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
+ notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
+ a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
+ these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
+ License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
+ does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
+ the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
+
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
+identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
+and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
+themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
+sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
+distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
+on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
+this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
+entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
+
+Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
+your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
+exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
+collective works based on the Program.
+
+In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
+with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
+a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
+the scope of this License.
+
+ 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
+under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
+Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+
+ a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
+ source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
+ 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
+ years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
+ cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
+ machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
+ distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
+ customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
+ to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
+ allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
+ received the program in object code or executable form with such
+ an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
+
+The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
+making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
+code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
+associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
+control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
+special exception, the source code distributed need not include
+anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
+form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
+operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
+itself accompanies the executable.
+
+If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
+access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
+access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
+distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
+compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
+
+ 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
+except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
+otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
+void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
+However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
+this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
+parties remain in full compliance.
+
+ 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
+signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
+distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
+prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
+modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
+all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
+the Program or works based on it.
+
+ 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
+original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
+these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
+restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
+You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
+this License.
+
+ 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
+infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
+conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
+otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
+excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot

+license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
+all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
+the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
+refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
+
+If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
+any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
+apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
+circumstances.

+ WorkBiT NinjaSCSI-3/32Bi driver for Linux
+
+1. Comment
+ This is Workbit corp.'s(http://www.workbit.co.jp/) NinjaSCSI-3
+for Linux.
+
+2. My Linux environment
+Linux kernel: 2.4.7 / 2.2.19
+pcmcia-cs: 3.1.27
+gcc: gcc-2.95.4
+PC card: I-O data PCSC-F (NinjaSCSI-3)
+ I-O data CBSC-II in 16 bit mode (NinjaSCSI-32Bi)
+SCSI device: I-O data CDPS-PX24 (CD-ROM drive)
+ Media Intelligent MMO-640GT (Optical disk drive)
+
+3. Install
+[1] Check your PC card is true "NinjaSCSI-3" card.
+ If you installed pcmcia-cs already, pcmcia reports your card as UNKNOWN
+ card, and write ["WBT", "NinjaSCSI-3", "R1.0"] or some other string to
+ your console or log file.
+ You can also use "cardctl" program (this program is in pcmcia-cs source
+ code) to get more info.

+# cardctl ident
+Socket 0:
+ no product info available
+Socket 1:
+ product info: "IO DATA", "CBSC16 ", "1"
+
+
+[2] Get the Linux kernel source, and extract it to /usr/src.
+ Because the NinjaSCSI driver requires some SCSI header files in Linux
+ kernel source, I recommend rebuilding your kernel; this eliminates
+ some versioning problems.
+$ cd /usr/src
+$ tar -zxvf linux-x.x.x.tar.gz
+$ cd linux
+$ make config
+...
+
+[3] If you use this driver with Kernel 2.2, unpack pcmcia-cs in some directory
+ and make & install. This driver requires the pcmcia-cs header file.
+$ cd /usr/src
+$ tar zxvf cs-pcmcia-cs-3.x.x.tar.gz
+...
+
+[4] Extract this driver's archive somewhere, and edit Makefile, then do make.
+$ tar -zxvf nsp_cs-x.x.tar.gz
+$ cd nsp_cs-x.x
+$ emacs Makefile
+...
+$ make
+
+[5] Copy nsp_cs.ko to suitable place, like /lib/modules/<Kernel version>/pcmcia/ .
+
+[6] Add these lines to /etc/pcmcia/config .
+ If you use pcmcia-cs-3.1.8 or later, we can use "nsp_cs.conf" file.
+ So, you don't need to edit file. Just copy to /etc/pcmcia/ .

+AACRAID Driver for Linux (take two)
+
+Introduction
+-------------------------
+The aacraid driver adds support for Adaptec (http://www.adaptec.com)
+RAID controllers. This is a major rewrite from the original
+Adaptec supplied driver. It has significantly cleaned up both the code
+and the running binary size (the module is less than half the size of
+the original).

+
+Driver Compile Time Options and Debugging
+
+The following constants can be defined in the source file.
+
+1. ADVANSYS_ASSERT - Enable driver assertions (Def: Enabled)
+
+ Enabling this option adds assertion logic statements to the
+ driver. If an assertion fails a message will be displayed to
+ the console, but the system will continue to operate. Any
+ assertions encountered should be reported to the person
+ responsible for the driver. Assertion statements may proactively
+ detect problems with the driver and facilitate fixing these
+ problems. Enabling assertions will add a small overhead to the
+ execution of the driver.
+
+2. ADVANSYS_DEBUG - Enable driver debugging (Def: Disabled)
+
+ Enabling this option adds tracing functions to the driver and the
+ ability to set a driver tracing level at boot time. This option is
+ very useful for debugging the driver, but it will add to the size
+ of the driver execution image and add overhead to the execution of
+ the driver.
+
+ The amount of debugging output can be controlled with the global
+ variable 'asc_dbglvl'. The higher the number the more output. By
+ default the debug level is 0.
+
+ If the driver is loaded at boot time and the LILO Driver Option
+ is included in the system, the debug level can be changed by
+ specifying a 5th (ASC_NUM_IOPORT_PROBE + 1) I/O Port. The
+ first three hex digits of the pseudo I/O Port must be set to
+ 'deb' and the fourth hex digit specifies the debug level: 0 - F.
+ The following command line will look for an adapter at 0x330
+ and set the debug level to 2.
+
+ linux advansys=0x330,0,0,0,0xdeb2
+
+ If the driver is built as a loadable module this variable can be
+ defined when the driver is loaded. The following insmod command
+ will set the debug level to one.
+
+ insmod advansys.o asc_dbglvl=1
+
+ Debugging Message Levels:
+ 0: Errors Only
+ 1: High-Level Tracing
+ 2-N: Verbose Tracing
+
+ To enable debug output to console, please make sure that:
+
+ a. System and kernel logging is enabled (syslogd, klogd running).
+ b. Kernel messages are routed to console output. Check
+ /etc/syslog.conf for an entry similar to this:
+
+ kern.* /dev/console
+
+ c. klogd is started with the appropriate -c parameter
+ (e.g. klogd -c 8)
+
+ This will cause printk() messages to be be displayed on the
+ current console. Refer to the klogd(8) and syslogd(8) man pages
+ for details.
+
+ Alternatively you can enable printk() to console with this
+ program. However, this is not the 'official' way to do this.
+ Debug output is logged in /var/log/messages.
+
+ main()
+ {
+ syscall(103, 7, 0, 0);
+ }
+
+ Increasing LOG_BUF_LEN in kernel/printk.c to something like
+ 40960 allows more debug messages to be buffered in the kernel
+ and written to the console or log file.
+
+3. ADVANSYS_STATS - Enable statistics (Def: Enabled)
+
+ Enabling this option adds statistics collection and display
+ through /proc to the driver. The information is useful for
+ monitoring driver and device performance. It will add to the
+ size of the driver execution image and add minor overhead to
+ the execution of the driver.
+
+ Statistics are maintained on a per adapter basis. Driver entry
+ point call counts and transfer size counts are maintained.
+ Statistics are only available for kernels greater than or equal
+ to v1.3.0 with the CONFIG_PROC_FS (/proc) file system configured.
+
+ AdvanSys SCSI adapter files have the following path name format:
+
+ /proc/scsi/advansys/{0,1,2,3,...}
+
+ This information can be displayed with cat. For example:
+
+ cat /proc/scsi/advansys/0
+
+ When ADVANSYS_STATS is not defined the AdvanSys /proc files only
+ contain adapter and device configuration information.
+
+Driver LILO Option
+
+If init/main.c is modified as described in the 'Directions for Adding
+the AdvanSys Driver to Linux' section (B.4.) above, the driver will
+recognize the 'advansys' LILO command line and /etc/lilo.conf option.
+This option can be used to either disable I/O port scanning or to limit
+scanning to 1 - 4 I/O ports. Regardless of the option setting EISA and
+PCI boards will still be searched for and detected. This option only
+affects searching for ISA and VL boards.
+
+Examples:
+ 1. Eliminate I/O port scanning:
+ boot: linux advansys=
+ or
+ boot: linux advansys=0x0
+ 2. Limit I/O port scanning to one I/O port:
+ boot: linux advansys=0x110
+ 3. Limit I/O port scanning to four I/O ports:
+ boot: linux advansys=0x110,0x210,0x230,0x330
+
+For a loadable module the same effect can be achieved by setting
+the 'asc_iopflag' variable and 'asc_ioport' array when loading
+the driver, e.g.
+
+ insmod advansys.o asc_iopflag=1 asc_ioport=0x110,0x330
+
+If ADVANSYS_DEBUG is defined a 5th (ASC_NUM_IOPORT_PROBE + 1)
+I/O Port may be added to specify the driver debug level. Refer to
+the 'Driver Compile Time Options and Debugging' section above for
+more information.

+Adaptec AHA-1520/1522 SCSI driver for Linux (aha152x)
+
+Copyright 1993-1999 J├╝rgen Fischer <fischer@norbit.de>
+TC1550 patches by Luuk van Dijk (ldz@xs4all.nl)
+
+
+In Revision 2 the driver was modified a lot (especially the
+bottom-half handler complete()).
+
+The driver is much cleaner now, has support for the new
+error handling code in 2.3, produced less cpu load (much
+less polling loops), has slightly higher throughput (at
+least on my ancient test box; a i486/33Mhz/20MB).
+
+
+CONFIGURATION ARGUMENTS:
+
+IOPORT base io address (0x340/0x140)
+IRQ interrupt level (9-12; default 11)
+SCSI_ID scsi id of controller (0-7; default 7)
+RECONNECT allow targets to disconnect from the bus (0/1; default 1 [on])
+PARITY enable parity checking (0/1; default 1 [on])
+SYNCHRONOUS enable synchronous transfers (0/1; default 1 [on])
+DELAY: bus reset delay (default 100)
+EXT_TRANS: enable extended translation (0/1: default 0 [off])
+ (see NOTES)
+
+COMPILE TIME CONFIGURATION (go into AHA152X in drivers/scsi/Makefile):
+
+-DAUTOCONF
+ use configuration the controller reports (AHA-152x only)
+
+-DSKIP_BIOSTEST
+ Don't test for BIOS signature (AHA-1510 or disabled BIOS)
+
+-DSETUP0="{ IOPORT, IRQ, SCSI_ID, RECONNECT, PARITY, SYNCHRONOUS, DELAY, EXT_TRANS }"
+ override for the first controller
+
+-DSETUP1="{ IOPORT, IRQ, SCSI_ID, RECONNECT, PARITY, SYNCHRONOUS, DELAY, EXT_TRANS }"
+ override for the second controller
+
+-DAHA152X_DEBUG
+ enable debugging output
+
+-DAHA152X_STAT
+ enable some statistics
+
+
+LILO COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:
+
+aha152x=<IOPORT>[,<IRQ>[,<SCSI-ID>[,<RECONNECT>[,<PARITY>[,<SYNCHRONOUS>[,<DELAY> [,<EXT_TRANS]]]]]]]
+
+ The normal configuration can be overridden by specifying a command line.
+ When you do this, the BIOS test is skipped. Entered values have to be
+ valid (known). Don't use values that aren't supported under normal
+ operation. If you think that you need other values: contact me.
+ For two controllers use the aha152x statement twice.
+
+
+SYMBOLS FOR MODULE CONFIGURATION:
+
+Choose from 2 alternatives:
+
+1. specify everything (old)
+
+aha152x=IOPORT,IRQ,SCSI_ID,RECONNECT,PARITY,SYNCHRONOUS,DELAY,EXT_TRANS
+ configuration override for first controller

+
+
+NOTES ON EXT_TRANS:
+
+SCSI uses block numbers to address blocks/sectors on a device.
+The BIOS uses a cylinder/head/sector addressing scheme (C/H/S)
+scheme instead. DOS expects a BIOS or driver that understands this
+C/H/S addressing.
+
+The number of cylinders/heads/sectors is called geometry and is required
+as base for requests in C/H/S addressing. SCSI only knows about the
+total capacity of disks in blocks (sectors).
+
+Therefore the SCSI BIOS/DOS driver has to calculate a logical/virtual
+geometry just to be able to support that addressing scheme. The geometry
+returned by the SCSI BIOS is a pure calculation and has nothing to
+do with the real/physical geometry of the disk (which is usually
+irrelevant anyway).
+
+Basically this has no impact at all on Linux, because it also uses block
+instead of C/H/S addressing. Unfortunately C/H/S addressing is also used
+in the partition table and therefore every operating system has to know
+the right geometry to be able to interpret it.
+
+Moreover there are certain limitations to the C/H/S addressing scheme,
+namely the address space is limited to up to 255 heads, up to 63 sectors
+and a maximum of 1023 cylinders.
+
+The AHA-1522 BIOS calculates the geometry by fixing the number of heads
+to 64, the number of sectors to 32 and by calculating the number of
+cylinders by dividing the capacity reported by the disk by 64*32 (1 MB).
+This is considered to be the default translation.
+
+With respect to the limit of 1023 cylinders using C/H/S you can only
+address the first GB of your disk in the partition table. Therefore
+BIOSes of some newer controllers based on the AIC-6260/6360 support
+extended translation. This means that the BIOS uses 255 for heads,
+63 for sectors and then divides the capacity of the disk by 255*63
+(about 8 MB), as soon it sees a disk greater than 1 GB. That results
+in a maximum of about 8 GB addressable diskspace in the partition table
+(but there are already bigger disks out there today).
+
+To make it even more complicated the translation mode might/might
+not be configurable in certain BIOS setups.
+
+This driver does some more or less failsafe guessing to get the
+geometry right in most cases:
+
+- for disks<1GB: use default translation (C/32/64)
+
+- for disks>1GB:
+ - take current geometry from the partition table
+ (using scsicam_bios_param and accept only `valid' geometries,
+ ie. either (C/32/64) or (C/63/255)). This can be extended translation
+ even if it's not enabled in the driver.
+
+ - if that fails, take extended translation if enabled by override,
+ kernel or module parameter, otherwise take default translation and
+ ask the user for verification. This might on not yet partitioned
+ disks.

+2. Version History
+
+ 3.0 (December 1st, 2005)
+ - Updated driver to use SCSI transport class infrastructure
+ - Upported sequencer and core fixes from adaptec released
+ version 2.0.15 of the driver.
+
+ 1.3.11 (July 11, 2003)
+ - Fix several deadlock issues.
+ - Add 29320ALP and 39320B Id's.
+
+ 1.3.10 (June 3rd, 2003)
+ - Align the SCB_TAG field on a 16byte boundary. This avoids
+ SCB corruption on some PCI-33 busses.
+ - Correct non-zero luns on Rev B. hardware.
+ - Update for change in 2.5.X SCSI proc FS interface.
+ - When negotiation async via an 8bit WDTR message, send
+ an SDTR with an offset of 0 to be sure the target
+ knows we are async. This works around a firmware defect
+ in the Quantum Atlas 10K.
+ - Implement controller suspend and resume.
+ - Clear PCI error state during driver attach so that we
+ don't disable memory mapped I/O due to a stray write
+ by some other driver probe that occurred before we
+ claimed the controller.
+
+ 1.3.9 (May 22nd, 2003)
+ - Fix compiler errors.
+ - Remove S/G splitting for segments that cross a 4GB boundary.
+ This is guaranteed not to happen in Linux.
+ - Add support for scsi_report_device_reset() found in
+ 2.5.X kernels.
+ - Add 7901B support.
+ - Simplify handling of the packetized lun Rev A workaround.
+ - Correct and simplify handling of the ignore wide residue
+ message. The previous code would fail to report a residual
+ if the transaction data length was even and we received
+ an IWR message.
+
+ 1.3.8 (April 29th, 2003)
+ - Fix types accessed via the command line interface code.
+ - Perform a few firmware optimizations.
+ - Fix "Unexpected PKT busfree" errors.
+ - Use a sequencer interrupt to notify the host of
+ commands with bad status. We defer the notification
+ until there are no outstanding selections to ensure
+ that the host is interrupted for as short a time as
+ possible.
+ - Remove pre-2.2.X support.
+ - Add support for new 2.5.X interrupt API.
+ - Correct big-endian architecture support.
+
+ 1.3.7 (April 16th, 2003)
+ - Use del_timer_sync() to ensure that no timeouts
+ are pending during controller shutdown.
+ - For pre-2.5.X kernels, carefully adjust our segment
+ list size to avoid SCSI malloc pool fragmentation.
+ - Cleanup channel display in our /proc output.
+ - Workaround duplicate device entries in the mid-layer
+ device list during add-single-device.
+
+ 1.3.6 (March 28th, 2003)
+ - Correct a double free in the Domain Validation code.
+ - Correct a reference to free'ed memory during controller
+ shutdown.
+ - Reset the bus on an SE->LVD change. This is required
+ to reset our transceivers.
+
+ 1.3.5 (March 24th, 2003)
+ - Fix a few register window mode bugs.
+ - Include read streaming in the PPR flags we display in
+ diagnostics as well as /proc.
+ - Add PCI hot plug support for 2.5.X kernels.
+ - Correct default precompensation value for RevA hardware.
+ - Fix Domain Validation thread shutdown.
+ - Add a firmware workaround to make the LED blink
+ brighter during packetized operations on the H2A4.
+ - Correct /proc display of user read streaming settings.
+ - Simplify driver locking by releasing the io_request_lock
+ upon driver entry from the mid-layer.
+ - Cleanup command line parsing and move much of this code
+ to aiclib.
+
+ 1.3.4 (February 28th, 2003)
+ - Correct a race condition in our error recovery handler.
+ - Allow Test Unit Ready commands to take a full 5 seconds
+ during Domain Validation.
+
+ 1.3.2 (February 19th, 2003)
+ - Correct a Rev B. regression due to the GEM318
+ compatibility fix included in 1.3.1.
+
+ 1.3.1 (February 11th, 2003)
+ - Add support for the 39320A.
+ - Improve recovery for certain PCI-X errors.

+
+4. Additional Notes
+
+ 4.1. Known/Unresolved or FYI Issues
+
+ * Under SuSE Linux Enterprise 7, the driver may fail to operate
+ correctly due to a problem with PCI interrupt routing in the
+ Linux kernel. Please contact SuSE for an updated Linux
+ kernel.
+
+ 4.2. Third-Party Compatibility Issues
+
+ * Adaptec only supports Ultra320 hard drives running
+ the latest firmware available. Please check with
+ your hard drive manufacturer to ensure you have the
+ latest version.
+
+ 4.3. Operating System or Technology Limitations
+
+ * PCI Hot Plug is untested and may cause the operating system
+ to stop responding.
+ * Luns that are not numbered contiguously starting with 0 might not
+ be automatically probed during system startup. This is a limitation
+ of the OS. Please contact your Linux vendor for instructions on
+ manually probing non-contiguous luns.
+ * Using the Driver Update Disk version of this package during OS
+ installation under RedHat might result in two versions of this
+ driver being installed into the system module directory. This
+ might cause problems with the /sbin/mkinitrd program and/or
+ other RPM packages that try to install system modules. The best
+ way to correct this once the system is running is to install
+ the latest RPM package version of this driver, available from
+ http://www.adaptec.com.

+
+2. Version History
+ 7.0 (4th August, 2005)
+ - Updated driver to use SCSI transport class infrastructure
+ - Upported sequencer and core fixes from last adaptec released
+ version of the driver.
+ 6.2.36 (June 3rd, 2003)
+ - Correct code that disables PCI parity error checking.
+ - Correct and simplify handling of the ignore wide residue
+ message. The previous code would fail to report a residual
+ if the transaction data length was even and we received
+ an IWR message.
+ - Add support for the 2.5.X EISA framework.
+ - Update for change in 2.5.X SCSI proc FS interface.
+ - Correct Domain Validation command-line option parsing.
+ - When negotiation async via an 8bit WDTR message, send
+ an SDTR with an offset of 0 to be sure the target
+ knows we are async. This works around a firmware defect
+ in the Quantum Atlas 10K.
+ - Clear PCI error state during driver attach so that we
+ don't disable memory mapped I/O due to a stray write
+ by some other driver probe that occurred before we
+ claimed the controller.
+
+ 6.2.35 (May 14th, 2003)
+ - Fix a few GCC 3.3 compiler warnings.
+ - Correct operation on EISA Twin Channel controller.
+ - Add support for 2.5.X's scsi_report_device_reset().
+
+ 6.2.34 (May 5th, 2003)
+ - Fix locking regression introduced in 6.2.29 that
+ could cause a lock order reversal between the io_request_lock
+ and our per-softc lock. This was only possible on RH9,
+ SuSE, and kernel.org 2.4.X kernels.
+
+ 6.2.33 (April 30th, 2003)
+ - Dynamically disable PCI parity error reporting after
+ 10 errors are reported to the user. These errors are
+ the result of some other device issuing PCI transactions
+ with bad parity. Once the user has been informed of the
+ problem, continuing to report the errors just degrades
+ our performance.
+
+ 6.2.32 (March 28th, 2003)
+ - Dynamically sized S/G lists to avoid SCSI malloc
+ pool fragmentation and SCSI mid-layer deadlock.
+
+ 6.2.28 (January 20th, 2003)
+ - Domain Validation Fixes
+ - Add ability to disable PCI parity error checking.
+ - Enhanced Memory Mapped I/O probe
+
+ 6.2.20 (November 7th, 2002)
+ - Added Domain Validation.
+
+3. Command Line Options
+
+ WARNING: ALTERING OR ADDING THESE DRIVER PARAMETERS
+ INCORRECTLY CAN RENDER YOUR SYSTEM INOPERABLE.
+ USE THEM WITH CAUTION.
+
+ Put a .conf file in the /etc/modprobe.d directory and add/edit a
+ line containing 'options aic7xxx aic7xxx=[command[,command...]]' where
+ 'command' is one or more of the following:
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: verbose
+ Definition: enable additional informative messages during
+ driver operation.
+ Possible Values: This option is a flag
+ Default Value: disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: debug:[value]
+ Definition: Enables various levels of debugging information
+ Possible Values: 0x0000 = no debugging, 0xffff = full debugging
+ Default Value: 0x0000
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: no_probe
+ Option: probe_eisa_vl
+ Definition: Do not probe for EISA/VLB controllers.
+ This is a toggle. If the driver is compiled
+ to not probe EISA/VLB controllers by default,
+ specifying "no_probe" will enable this probing.
+ If the driver is compiled to probe EISA/VLB
+ controllers by default, specifying "no_probe"
+ will disable this probing.
+ Possible Values: This option is a toggle
+ Default Value: EISA/VLB probing is disabled by default.
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: pci_parity
+ Definition: Toggles the detection of PCI parity errors.
+ On many motherboards with VIA chipsets,
+ PCI parity is not generated correctly on the
+ PCI bus. It is impossible for the hardware to
+ differentiate between these "spurious" parity
+ errors and real parity errors. The symptom of
+ this problem is a stream of the message:
+ "scsi0: Data Parity Error Detected during address or write data phase"
+ output by the driver.
+ Possible Values: This option is a toggle
+ Default Value: PCI Parity Error reporting is disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: no_reset
+ Definition: Do not reset the bus during the initial probe
+ phase
+ Possible Values: This option is a flag
+ Default Value: disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: extended
+ Definition: Force extended translation on the controller
+ Possible Values: This option is a flag
+ Default Value: disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: periodic_otag
+ Definition: Send an ordered tag periodically to prevent
+ tag starvation. Needed for some older devices
+ Possible Values: This option is a flag
+ Default Value: disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: reverse_scan
+ Definition: Probe the scsi bus in reverse order, starting
+ with target 15
+ Possible Values: This option is a flag
+ Default Value: disabled
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: global_tag_depth:[value]
+ Definition: Global tag depth for all targets on all busses.
+ This option sets the default tag depth which
+ may be selectively overridden vi the tag_info
+ option.
+ Possible Values: 1 - 253
+ Default Value: 32
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: tag_info:{{value[,value...]}[,{value[,value...]}...]}
+ Definition: Set the per-target tagged queue depth on a
+ per controller basis. Both controllers and targets
+ may be omitted indicating that they should retain
+ the default tag depth.
+ Examples: tag_info:{{16,32,32,64,8,8,,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32}
+ On Controller 0
+ specifies a tag depth of 16 for target 0
+ specifies a tag depth of 64 for target 3
+ specifies a tag depth of 8 for targets 4 and 5
+ leaves target 6 at the default
+ specifies a tag depth of 32 for targets 1,2,7-15
+ All other targets retain the default depth.
+
+ tag_info:{{},{32,,32}}
+ On Controller 1
+ specifies a tag depth of 32 for targets 0 and 2
+ All other targets retain the default depth.
+
+ Possible Values: 1 - 253
+ Default Value: 32
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: seltime:[value]
+ Definition: Specifies the selection timeout value
+ Possible Values: 0 = 256ms, 1 = 128ms, 2 = 64ms, 3 = 32ms
+ Default Value: 0
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+ Option: dv: {value[,value...]}
+ Definition: Set Domain Validation Policy on a per-controller basis.
+ Controllers may be omitted indicating that
+ they should retain the default read streaming setting.
+ Example: dv:{-1,0,,1,1,0}
+ On Controller 0 leave DV at its default setting.
+ On Controller 1 disable DV.
+ Skip configuration on Controller 2.
+ On Controllers 3 and 4 enable DV.
+ On Controller 5 disable DV.
+
+ Possible Values: < 0 Use setting from serial EEPROM.
+ 0 Disable DV
+ > 0 Enable DV
+
+ Default Value: SCSI-Select setting on controllers with a SCSI Select
+ option for DV. Otherwise, on for controllers supporting
+ U160 speeds and off for all other controller types.
+ -----------------------------------------------------------------
+
+ Example:
+ 'options aic7xxx aic7xxx=verbose,no_probe,tag_info:{{},{,,10}},seltime:1'
+ enables verbose logging, Disable EISA/VLB probing,
+ and set tag depth on Controller 1/Target 2 to 10 tags.

+ AIC7xxx Driver for Linux
+
+Introduction
+----------------------------
+The AIC7xxx SCSI driver adds support for Adaptec (http://www.adaptec.com)
+SCSI controllers and chipsets. Major portions of the driver and driver
+development are shared between both Linux and FreeBSD. Support for the
+AIC-7xxx chipsets have been in the default Linux kernel since approximately
+linux-1.1.x and fairly stable since linux-1.2.x, and are also in FreeBSD
+2.1.0 or later.

+
+ Bus Types
+ ----------------------------
+ R - Raid Port busses are not supported.
+
+ The hardware RAID devices sold by Adaptec are *NOT* supported by this

+
+ Boot Command line options
+ ------------------------------
+ "aic7xxx=no_reset" - Eliminate the SCSI bus reset during startup.
+ Some SCSI devices need the initial reset that this option disables
+ in order to work. If you have problems at bootup, please make sure
+ you aren't using this option.
+
+ "aic7xxx=reverse_scan" - Certain PCI motherboards scan for devices at
+ bootup by scanning from the highest numbered PCI device to the
+ lowest numbered PCI device, others do just the opposite and scan
+ from lowest to highest numbered PCI device. There is no reliable
+ way to autodetect this ordering. So, we default to the most common
+ order, which is lowest to highest. Then, in case your motherboard
+ scans from highest to lowest, we have this option. If your BIOS
+ finds the drives on controller A before controller B but the linux
+ kernel finds your drives on controller B before A, then you should
+ use this option.
+
+ "aic7xxx=extended" - Force the driver to detect extended drive translation
+ on your controller. This helps those people who have cards without
+ a SEEPROM make sure that linux and all other operating systems think
+ the same way about your hard drives.
+
+ "aic7xxx=scbram" - Some cards have external SCB RAM that can be used to
+ give the card more hardware SCB slots. This allows the driver to use
+ that SCB RAM. Without this option, the driver won't touch the SCB
+ RAM because it is known to cause problems on a few cards out there
+ (such as 3985 class cards).
+
+ "aic7xxx=irq_trigger:x" - Replace x with either 0 or 1 to force the kernel
+ to use the correct IRQ type for your card. This only applies to EISA
+ based controllers. On these controllers, 0 is for Edge triggered
+ interrupts, and 1 is for Level triggered interrupts. If you aren't
+ sure or don't know which IRQ trigger type your EISA card uses, then
+ let the kernel autodetect the trigger type.
+
+ "aic7xxx=verbose" - This option can be used in one of two ways. If you
+ simply specify aic7xxx=verbose, then the kernel will automatically
+ pick the default set of verbose messages for you to see.
+ Alternatively, you can specify the command as
+ "aic7xxx=verbose:0xXXXX" where the X entries are replaced with
+ hexadecimal digits. This option is a bit field type option. For
+ a full listing of the available options, search for the
+ #define VERBOSE_xxxxxx lines in the aic7xxx.c file. If you want
+ verbose messages, then it is recommended that you simply use the
+ aic7xxx=verbose variant of this command.
+
+ "aic7xxx=pci_parity:x" - This option controls whether or not the driver
+ enables PCI parity error checking on the PCI bus. By default, this
+ checking is disabled. To enable the checks, simply specify pci_parity
+ with no value afterwords. To reverse the parity from even to odd,
+ supply any number other than 0 or 255. In short:
+ pci_parity - Even parity checking (even is the normal PCI parity)
+ pci_parity:x - Where x > 0, Odd parity checking
+ pci_parity:0 - No check (default)
+ NOTE: In order to get Even PCI parity checking, you must use the
+ version of the option that does not include the : and a number at
+ the end (unless you want to enter exactly 2^32 - 1 as the number).
+
+ "aic7xxx=no_probe" - This option will disable the probing for any VLB
+ based 2842 controllers and any EISA based controllers. This is
+ needed on certain newer motherboards where the normal EISA I/O ranges
+ have been claimed by other PCI devices. Probing on those machines
+ will often result in the machine crashing or spontaneously rebooting
+ during startup. Examples of machines that need this are the
+ Dell PowerEdge 6300 machines.
+
+ "aic7xxx=seltime:2" - This option controls how long the card waits
+ during a device selection sequence for the device to respond.
+ The original SCSI spec says that this "should be" 256ms. This
+ is generally not required with modern devices. However, some
+ very old SCSI I devices need the full 256ms. Most modern devices
+ can run fine with only 64ms. The default for this option is
+ 64ms. If you need to change this option, then use the following
+ table to set the proper value in the example above:
+ 0 - 256ms
+ 1 - 128ms
+ 2 - 64ms
+ 3 - 32ms
+
+ "aic7xxx=panic_on_abort" - This option is for debugging and will cause
+ the driver to panic the linux kernel and freeze the system the first
+ time the drivers abort or reset routines are called. This is most
+ helpful when some problem causes infinite reset loops that scroll too
+ fast to see. By using this option, you can write down what the errors
+ actually are and send that information to me so it can be fixed.
+
+ "aic7xxx=dump_card" - This option will print out the *entire* set of
+ configuration registers on the card during the init sequence. This
+ is a debugging aid used to see exactly what state the card is in
+ when we finally finish our initialization routines. If you don't
+ have documentation on the chipsets, this will do you absolutely
+ no good unless you are simply trying to write all the information
+ down in order to send it to me.
+
+ "aic7xxx=dump_sequencer" - This is the same as the above options except
+ that instead of dumping the register contents on the card, this
+ option dumps the contents of the sequencer program RAM. This gives
+ the ability to verify that the instructions downloaded to the
+ card's sequencer are indeed what they are supposed to be. Again,
+ unless you have documentation to tell you how to interpret these
+ numbers, then it is totally useless.
+
+ "aic7xxx=override_term:0xffffffff" - This option is used to force the
+ termination on your SCSI controllers to a particular setting. This
+ is a bit mask variable that applies for up to 8 aic7xxx SCSI channels.
+ Each channel gets 4 bits, divided as follows:
+ bit 3 2 1 0
+ | | | Enable/Disable Single Ended Low Byte Termination
+ | | En/Disable Single Ended High Byte Termination
+ | En/Disable Low Byte LVD Termination
+ En/Disable High Byte LVD Termination
+
+ The upper 2 bits that deal with LVD termination only apply to Ultra2
+ controllers. Furthermore, due to the current Ultra2 controller
+ designs, these bits are tied together such that setting either bit
+ enables both low and high byte LVD termination. It is not possible
+ to only set high or low byte LVD termination in this manner. This is
+ an artifact of the BIOS definition on Ultra2 controllers. For other
+ controllers, the only important bits are the two lowest bits. Setting
+ the higher bits on non-Ultra2 controllers has no effect. A few
+ examples of how to use this option:
+
+ Enable low and high byte termination on a non-ultra2 controller that
+ is the first aic7xxx controller (the correct bits are 0011),
+ aic7xxx=override_term:0x3
+
+ Enable all termination on the third aic7xxx controller, high byte
+ termination on the second aic7xxx controller, and low and high byte
+ SE termination on the first aic7xxx controller
+ (bits are 1111 0010 0011),
+ aic7xxx=override_term:0xf23
+
+ No attempt has been made to make this option non-cryptic. It really
+ shouldn't be used except in dire circumstances, and if that happens,
+ I'm probably going to be telling you what to set this to anyway :)
+
+ "aic7xxx=stpwlev:0xffffffff" - This option is used to control the STPWLEV
+ bit in the DEVCONFIG PCI register. Currently, this is one of the
+ very few registers that we have absolutely *no* way of detecting
+ what the variable should be. It depends entirely on how the chipset
+ and external terminators were coupled by the card/motherboard maker.
+ Further, a chip reset (at power up) always sets this bit to 0. If
+ there is no BIOS to run on the chipset/card (such as with a 2910C
+ or a motherboard controller with the BIOS totally disabled) then
+ the variable may not get set properly. Of course, if the proper
+ setting was 0, then that's what it would be after the reset, but if
+ the proper setting is actually 1.....you get the picture. Now, since
+ we can't detect this at all, I've added this option to force the
+ setting. If you have a BIOS on your controller then you should never
+ need to use this option. However, if you are having lots of SCSI
+ reset problems and can't seem to get them knocked out, this may help.
+
+ Here's a test to know for certain if you need this option. Make
+ a boot floppy that you can use to boot your computer up and that
+ will detect the aic7xxx controller. Next, power down your computer.
+ While it's down, unplug all SCSI cables from your Adaptec SCSI
+ controller. Boot the system back up to the Adaptec EZ-SCSI BIOS
+ and then make sure that termination is enabled on your adapter (if
+ you have an Adaptec BIOS of course). Next, boot up the floppy you
+ made and wait for it to detect the aic7xxx controller. If the kernel
+ finds the controller fine, says scsi : x hosts and then tries to
+ detect your devices like normal, up to the point where it fails to
+ mount your root file system and panics, then you're fine. If, on
+ the other hand, the system goes into an infinite reset loop, then
+ you need to use this option and/or the previous option to force the
+ proper termination settings on your controller. If this happens,
+ then you next need to figure out what your settings should be.
+
+ To find the correct settings, power your machine back down, connect
+ back up the SCSI cables, and boot back into your machine like normal.
+ However, boot with the aic7xxx=verbose:0x39 option. Record the
+ initial DEVCONFIG values for each of your aic7xxx controllers as
+ they are listed, and also record what the machine is detecting as
+ the proper termination on your controllers. NOTE: the order in
+ which the initial DEVCONFIG values are printed out is not guaranteed
+ to be the same order as the SCSI controllers are registered. The
+ above option and this option both work on the order of the SCSI
+ controllers as they are registered, so make sure you match the right
+ DEVCONFIG values with the right controllers if you have more than
+ one aic7xxx controller.
+
+ Once you have the detected termination settings and the initial
+ DEVCONFIG values for each controller, then figure out what the
+ termination on each of the controllers *should* be. Hopefully, that
+ part is correct, but it could possibly be wrong if there is
+ bogus cable detection logic on your controller or something similar.
+ If all the controllers have the correct termination settings, then
+ don't set the aic7xxx=override_term variable at all, leave it alone.
+ Next, on any controllers that go into an infinite reset loop when
+ you unplug all the SCSI cables, get the starting DEVCONFIG value.
+ If the initial DEVCONFIG value is divisible by 2, then the correct
+ setting for that controller is 0. If it's an odd number, then
+ the correct setting for that controller is 1. For any other
+ controllers that didn't have an infinite reset problem, then reverse
+ the above options. If DEVCONFIG was even, then the correct setting
+ is 1, if not then the correct setting is 0.
+
+ Now that you know what the correct setting was for each controller,
+ we need to encode that into the aic7xxx=stpwlev:0x... variable.
+ This variable is a bit field encoded variable. Bit 0 is for the first
+ aic7xxx controller, bit 1 for the next, etc. Put all these bits
+ together and you get a number. For example, if the third aic7xxx
+ needed a 1, but the second and first both needed a 0, then the bits
+ would be 100 in binary. This then translates to 0x04. You would
+ therefore set aic7xxx=stpwlev:0x04. This is fairly standard binary
+ to hexadecimal conversions here. If you aren't up to speed on the
+ binary->hex conversion then send an email to the aic7xxx mailing
+ list and someone can help you out.
+
+ "aic7xxx=tag_info:{{8,8..},{8,8..},..}" - This option is used to disable
+ or enable Tagged Command Queueing (TCQ) on specific devices. As of
+ driver version 5.1.11, TCQ is now either on or off by default
+ according to the setting you choose during the make config process.
+ In order to en/disable TCQ for certain devices at boot time, a user
+ may use this boot param. The driver will then parse this message out
+ and en/disable the specific device entries that are present based upon
+ the value given. The param line is parsed in the following manner:
+
+ { - first instance indicates the start of this parameter values
+ second instance is the start of entries for a particular
+ device entry
+ } - end the entries for a particular host adapter, or end the entire
+ set of parameter entries
+ , - move to next entry. Inside of a set of device entries, this
+ moves us to the next device on the list. Outside of device
+ entries, this moves us to the next host adapter
+ . - Same effect as , but is safe to use with insmod.
+ x - the number to enter into the array at this position.
+ 0 = Enable tagged queueing on this device and use the default
+ queue depth
+ 1-254 = Enable tagged queueing on this device and use this
+ number as the queue depth
+ 255 = Disable tagged queueing on this device.
+ Note: anything above 32 for an actual queue depth is wasteful
+ and not recommended.
+
+ A few examples of how this can be used:
+
+ tag_info:{{8,12,,0,,255,4}}
+ This line will only effect the first aic7xxx card registered. It
+ will set scsi id 0 to a queue depth of 8, id 1 to 12, leave id 2
+ at the default, set id 3 to tagged queueing enabled and use the
+ default queue depth, id 4 default, id 5 disabled, and id 6 to 4.
+ Any not specified entries stay at the default value, repeated
+ commas with no value specified will simply increment to the next id
+ without changing anything for the missing values.
+
+ tag_info:{,,,{,,,255}}
+ First, second, and third adapters at default values. Fourth
+ adapter, id 3 is disabled. Notice that leading commas simply
+ increment what the first number effects, and there are no need
+ for trailing commas. When you close out an adapter, or the
+ entire entry, anything not explicitly set stays at the default
+ value.
+
+ A final note on this option. The scanner I used for this isn't
+ perfect or highly robust. If you mess the line up, the worst that
+ should happen is that the line will get ignored. If you don't
+ close out the entire entry with the final bracket, then any other
+ aic7xxx options after this will get ignored. So, in general, be
+ sure of what you are entering, and after you have it right, just
+ add it to the lilo.conf file so there won't be any mistakes. As
+ a means of checking this parser, the entire tag_info array for
+ each card is now printed out in the /proc/scsi/aic7xxx/x file. You
+ can use that to verify that your options were parsed correctly.
+
+ Boot command line options may be combined to form the proper set of options
+ a user might need. For example, the following is valid:
+
+ aic7xxx=verbose,extended,irq_trigger:1
+
+ The only requirement is that individual options be separated by a comma or
+ a period on the command line.
+
+ Module Loading command options
+ ------------------------------
+ When loading the aic7xxx driver as a module, the exact same options are
+ available to the user. However, the syntax to specify the options changes
+ slightly. For insmod, you need to wrap the aic7xxx= argument in quotes
+ and replace all ',' with '.'. So, for example, a valid insmod line
+ would be:
+
+ insmod aic7xxx aic7xxx='verbose.irq_trigger:1.extended'
+
+ This line should result in the *exact* same behaviour as if you typed
+ it in at the lilo prompt and the driver was compiled into the kernel
+ instead of being a module. The reason for the single quote is so that
+ the shell won't try to interpret anything in the line, such as {.
+ Insmod assumes any options starting with a letter instead of a number
+ is a character string (which is what we want) and by switching all of
+ the commas to periods, insmod won't interpret this as more than one
+ string and write junk into our binary image. I consider it a bug in
+ the insmod program that even if you wrap your string in quotes (quotes
+ that pass the shell mind you and that insmod sees) it still treats
+ a comma inside of those quotes as starting a new variable, resulting
+ in memory scribbles if you don't switch the commas to periods.
+
+
+ Kernel Compile options
+ ------------------------------
+ The various kernel compile time options for this driver are now fairly
+ well documented in the file drivers/scsi/Kconfig. In order to
+ see this documentation, you need to use one of the advanced configuration
+ programs (menuconfig and xconfig). If you are using the "make menuconfig"
+ method of configuring your kernel, then you would simply highlight the
+ option in question and hit the ? key. If you are using the "make xconfig"
+ method of configuring your kernel, then simply click on the help button
+ next to the option you have questions about. The help information from
+ the Configure.help file will then get automatically displayed.
+
+ /proc support
+ ------------------------------
+ The /proc support for the AIC7xxx can be found in the /proc/scsi/aic7xxx/
+ directory. That directory contains a file for each SCSI controller in
+ the system. Each file presents the current configuration and transfer
+ statistics (enabled with #define in aic7xxx.c) for each controller.
+
+ Thanks to Michael Neuffer for his upper-level SCSI help, and
+ Matthew Jacob for statistics support.
+
+ Debugging the driver
+ ------------------------------
+ Should you have problems with this driver, and would like some help in
+ getting them solved, there are a couple debugging items built into
+ the driver to facilitate getting the needed information from the system.
+ In general, I need a complete description of the problem, with as many
+ logs as possible concerning what happens. To help with this, there is
+ a command option aic7xxx=panic_on_abort. This option, when set, forces
+ the driver to panic the kernel on the first SCSI abort issued by the
+ mid level SCSI code. If your system is going to reset loops and you
+ can't read the screen, then this is what you need. Not only will it
+ stop the system, but it also prints out a large amount of state
+ information in the process. Second, if you specify the option
+ "aic7xxx=verbose:0x1ffff", the system will print out *SOOOO* much
+ information as it runs that you won't be able to see anything.
+ However, this can actually be very useful if your machine simply
+ locks up when trying to boot, since it will pin-point what was last
+ happening (in regards to the aic7xxx driver) immediately prior to
+ the lockup. This is really only useful if your machine simply can
+ not boot up successfully. If you can get your machine to run, then
+ this will produce far too much information.
+
+ FTP sites
+ ------------------------------
+ ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/aic/
+ - Out of date. I used to keep stuff here, but too many people
+ complained about having a hard time getting into Red Hat's ftp
+ server. So use the web site below instead.
+ ftp://ftp.pcnet.com/users/eischen/Linux/
+ - Dan Eischen's driver distribution area

+Operating FCoE using bnx2fc
+===========================
+Broadcom FCoE offload through bnx2fc is full stateful hardware offload that
+cooperates with all interfaces provided by the Linux ecosystem for FC/FCoE and
+SCSI controllers. As such, FCoE functionality, once enabled is largely
+transparent. Devices discovered on the SAN will be registered and unregistered
+automatically with the upper storage layers.
+
+Despite the fact that the Broadcom's FCoE offload is fully offloaded, it does
+depend on the state of the network interfaces to operate. As such, the network
+interface (e.g. eth0) associated with the FCoE offload initiator must be 'up'.
+It is recommended that the network interfaces be configured to be brought up
+automatically at boot time.
+
+Furthermore, the Broadcom FCoE offload solution creates VLAN interfaces to
+support the VLANs that have been discovered for FCoE operation (e.g.
+eth0.1001-fcoe). Do not delete or disable these interfaces or FCoE operation
+will be disrupted.
+
+Driver Usage Model:
+===================
+
+1. Ensure that fcoe-utils package is installed.
+
+2. Configure the interfaces on which bnx2fc driver has to operate on.
+Here are the steps to configure:
+ a. cd /etc/fcoe
+ b. copy cfg-ethx to cfg-eth5 if FCoE has to be enabled on eth5.
+ c. Repeat this for all the interfaces where FCoE has to be enabled.
+ d. Edit all the cfg-eth files to set "no" for DCB_REQUIRED** field, and
+ "yes" for AUTO_VLAN.
+ e. Other configuration parameters should be left as default
+
+3. Ensure that "bnx2fc" is in SUPPORTED_DRIVERS list in /etc/fcoe/config.
+
+4. Start fcoe service. (service fcoe start). If Broadcom devices are present in
+the system, bnx2fc driver would automatically claim the interfaces, starts vlan
+discovery and log into the targets.
+
+5. "Symbolic Name" in 'fcoeadm -i' output would display if bnx2fc has claimed
+the interface.
+Eg:
+[root@bh2 ~]# fcoeadm -i
+ Description: NetXtreme II BCM57712 10 Gigabit Ethernet
+ Revision: 01
+ Manufacturer: Broadcom Corporation
+ Serial Number: 0010186FD558
+ Driver: bnx2x 1.70.00-0
+ Number of Ports: 2
+
+ Symbolic Name: bnx2fc v1.0.5 over eth5.4
+ OS Device Name: host11
+ Node Name: 0x10000010186FD559
+ Port Name: 0x20000010186FD559
+ FabricName: 0x2001000DECB3B681
+ Speed: 10 Gbit
+ Supported Speed: 10 Gbit
+ MaxFrameSize: 2048
+ FC-ID (Port ID): 0x0F0377
+ State: Online
+
+6. Verify the vlan discovery is performed by running ifconfig and notice
+<INTERFACE>.<VLAN>-fcoe interfaces are automatically created.
+
+Refer to fcoeadm manpage for more information on fcoeadm operations to
+create/destroy interfaces or to display lun/target information.
+
+NOTE:
+====
+** Broadcom FCoE capable devices implement a DCBX/LLDP client on-chip. Only one
+LLDP client is allowed per interface. For proper operation all host software
+based DCBX/LLDP clients (e.g. lldpad) must be disabled. To disable lldpad on a
+given interface, run the following command:
+
+lldptool set-lldp -i <interface_name> adminStatus=disabled

+Chelsio S3 iSCSI Driver for Linux
+
+Introduction
+============
+
+The Chelsio T3 ASIC based Adapters (S310, S320, S302, S304, Mezz cards, etc.
+series of products) support iSCSI acceleration and iSCSI Direct Data Placement
+(DDP) where the hardware handles the expensive byte touching operations, such
+as CRC computation and verification, and direct DMA to the final host memory
+destination:
+
+ - iSCSI PDU digest generation and verification
+
+ On transmitting, Chelsio S3 h/w computes and inserts the Header and
+ Data digest into the PDUs.
+ On receiving, Chelsio S3 h/w computes and verifies the Header and
+ Data digest of the PDUs.
+
+ - Direct Data Placement (DDP)
+
+ S3 h/w can directly place the iSCSI Data-In or Data-Out PDU's
+ payload into pre-posted final destination host-memory buffers based
+ on the Initiator Task Tag (ITT) in Data-In or Target Task Tag (TTT)
+ in Data-Out PDUs.
+
+ - PDU Transmit and Recovery
+
+ On transmitting, S3 h/w accepts the complete PDU (header + data)
+ from the host driver, computes and inserts the digests, decomposes
+ the PDU into multiple TCP segments if necessary, and transmit all
+ the TCP segments onto the wire. It handles TCP retransmission if
+ needed.
+
+ On receiving, S3 h/w recovers the iSCSI PDU by reassembling TCP
+ segments, separating the header and data, calculating and verifying
+ the digests, then forwarding the header to the host. The payload data,
+ if possible, will be directly placed into the pre-posted host DDP
+ buffer. Otherwise, the payload data will be sent to the host too.
+
+The cxgb3i driver interfaces with open-iscsi initiator and provides the iSCSI
+acceleration through Chelsio hardware wherever applicable.
+
+Using the cxgb3i Driver
+=======================
+
+The following steps need to be taken to accelerates the open-iscsi initiator:
+
+1. Load the cxgb3i driver: "modprobe cxgb3i"
+
+ The cxgb3i module registers a new transport class "cxgb3i" with open-iscsi.
+
+ * in the case of recompiling the kernel, the cxgb3i selection is located at
+ Device Drivers
+ SCSI device support --->
+ [*] SCSI low-level drivers --->
+ <M> Chelsio S3xx iSCSI support
+
+2. Create an interface file located under /etc/iscsi/ifaces/ for the new
+ transport class "cxgb3i".
+
+ The content of the file should be in the following format:
+ iface.transport_name = cxgb3i
+ iface.net_ifacename = <ethX>
+ iface.ipaddress = <iscsi ip address>
+
+ * if iface.ipaddress is specified, <iscsi ip address> needs to be either the
+ same as the ethX's ip address or an address on the same subnet. Make
+ sure the ip address is unique in the network.
+
+3. edit /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf
+ The default setting for MaxRecvDataSegmentLength (131072) is too big;
+ replace with a value no bigger than 15360 (for example 8192):
+
+ node.conn[0].iscsi.MaxRecvDataSegmentLength = 8192
+
+ * The login would fail for a normal session if MaxRecvDataSegmentLength is
+ too big. A error message in the format of
+ "cxgb3i: ERR! MaxRecvSegmentLength <X> too big. Need to be <= <Y>."
+ would be logged to dmesg.
+
+4. To direct open-iscsi traffic to go through cxgb3i's accelerated path,
+ "-I <iface file name>" option needs to be specified with most of the
+ iscsiadm command. <iface file name> is the transport interface file created
+ in step 2.

+README file for the dc395x SCSI driver
+==========================================
+
+Status
+------
+The driver has been tested with CD-R and CD-R/W drives. These should
+be safe to use. Testing with hard disks has not been done to any
+great degree and caution should be exercised if you want to attempt
+to use this driver with hard disks.
+
+This is a 2.5 only driver. For a 2.4 driver please see the original
+driver (which this driver started from) at
+http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/dc395/
+
+Problems, questions and patches should be submitted to the mailing
+list. Details on the list, including archives, are available at
+http://lists.twibble.org/mailman/listinfo/dc395x/
+
+Parameters
+----------
+The driver uses the settings from the EEPROM set in the SCSI BIOS
+setup. If there is no EEPROM, the driver uses default values.
+Both can be overridden by command line parameters (module or kernel
+parameters).
+
+The following parameters are available:
+
+ - safe
+ Default: 0, Acceptable values: 0 or 1
+
+ If safe is set to 1 then the adapter will use conservative
+ ("safe") default settings. This sets:
+
+ shortcut for dc395x=7,4,9,15,2,10
+
+ - adapter_id
+ Default: 7, Acceptable values: 0 to 15
+
+ Sets the host adapter SCSI ID.

+ 1 = 12.2 Mhz
+ 2 = 10 Mhz
+ 3 = 8 Mhz
+ 4 = 6.7 Mhz
+ 5 = 5.8 Hhz
+ 6 = 5 Mhz
+ 7 = 4 Mhz
+
+ - dev_mode
+ Bitmap for device configuration
+
+ DevMode bit definition:
+ Bit Val(hex) Val(dec) Meaning
+ *0 0x01 1 Parity check
+ *1 0x02 2 Synchronous Negotiation

+README file for the Linux DTC3180/3280 scsi driver.
+by Ray Van Tassle (rayvt@comm.mot.com) March 1996
+Based on the generic & core NCR5380 code by Drew Eckhard
+
+SCSI device driver for the DTC 3180/3280.
+Data Technology Corp---a division of Qume.
+
+The 3280 has a standard floppy interface.
+
+The 3180 does not. Otherwise, they are identical.
+
+The DTC3x80 does not support DMA but it does have Pseudo-DMA which is
+supported by the driver.
+
+Its DTC406 scsi chip is supposedly compatible with the NCR 53C400.
+It is memory mapped, uses an IRQ, but no dma or io-port. There is
+internal DMA, between SCSI bus and an on-chip 128-byte buffer. Double
+buffering is done automagically by the chip. Data is transferred
+between the on-chip buffer and CPU/RAM via memory moves.
+
+The driver detects the possible memory addresses (jumper selectable):
+ CC00, DC00, C800, and D800
+The possible IRQ's (jumper selectable) are:
+ IRQ 10, 11, 12, 15
+Parity is supported by the chip, but not by this driver.
+Information can be obtained from /proc/scsi/dtc3c80/N.
+
+Note on interrupts:
+
+The documentation says that it can be set to interrupt whenever the
+on-chip buffer needs CPU attention. I couldn't get this to work. So
+the driver polls for data-ready in the pseudo-DMA transfer routine.
+The interrupt support routines in the NCR3280.c core modules handle
+scsi disconnect/reconnect, and this (mostly) works. However..... I
+have tested it with 4 totally different hard drives (both SCSI-1 and
+SCSI-2), and one CDROM drive. Interrupts works great for all but one
+specific hard drive. For this one, the driver will eventually hang in
+the transfer state. I have tested with: "dd bs=4k count=2k
+of=/dev/null if=/dev/sdb". It reads ok for a while, then hangs.
+After beating my head against this for a couple of weeks, getting
+nowhere, I give up. So.....This driver does NOT use interrupts, even
+if you have the card jumpered to an IRQ. Probably nobody will ever
+care.

+NCR53c400 extensions (c) 1994,1995,1996 Kevin Lentin
+
+This file documents the NCR53c400 extensions by Kevin Lentin and some
+enhancements to the NCR5380 core.
+
+This driver supports both NCR5380 and NCR53c400 cards in port or memory
+mapped modes. Currently this driver can only support one of those mapping
+modes at a time but it does support both of these chips at the same time.
+The next release of this driver will support port & memory mapped cards at
+the same time. It should be able to handle multiple different cards in the
+same machine.
+
+The drivers/scsi/Makefile has an override in it for the most common
+NCR53c400 card, the Trantor T130B in its default configuration:
+ Port: 0x350
+ IRQ : 5
+
+The NCR53c400 does not support DMA but it does have Pseudo-DMA which is
+supported by the driver.
+
+If the default configuration does not work for you, you can use the kernel
+command lines (eg using the lilo append command):
+ ncr5380=port,irq,dma
+ ncr53c400=port,irq
+or
+ ncr5380=base,irq,dma
+ ncr53c400=base,irq
+
+The driver does not probe for any addresses or ports other than those in
+the OVERRIDE or given to the kernel as above.
+
+This driver provides some information on what it has detected in
+/proc/scsi/g_NCR5380/x where x is the scsi card number as detected at boot
+time. More info to come in the future.
+
+When NCR53c400 support is compiled in, BIOS parameters will be returned by
+the driver (the raw 5380 driver does not and I don't plan to fiddle with
+it!).
+
+This driver works as a module.
+When included as a module, parameters can be passed on the insmod/modprobe
+command line:
+ ncr_irq=xx the interrupt
+ ncr_addr=xx the port or base address (for port or memory
+ mapped, resp.)
+ ncr_dma=xx the DMA
+ ncr_5380=1 to set up for a NCR5380 board
+ ncr_53c400=1 to set up for a NCR53C400 board
+e.g.
+modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_irq=5 ncr_addr=0x350 ncr_5380=1
+ for a port mapped NCR5380 board or
+modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_irq=255 ncr_addr=0xc8000 ncr_53c400=1
+ for a memory mapped NCR53C400 board with interrupts disabled.
+
+(255 should be specified for no or DMA interrupt, 254 to autoprobe for an
+ IRQ line if overridden on the command line.)

+
+HPSA - Hewlett Packard Smart Array driver
+-----------------------------------------
+
+This file describes the hpsa SCSI driver for HP Smart Array controllers.
+The hpsa driver is intended to supplant the cciss driver for newer
+Smart Array controllers. The hpsa driver is a SCSI driver, while the
+cciss driver is a "block" driver. Actually cciss is both a block
+driver (for logical drives) AND a SCSI driver (for tape drives). This
+"split-brained" design of the cciss driver is a source of excess
+complexity and eliminating that complexity is one of the reasons
+for hpsa to exist.
+
+Supported devices:
+------------------
+
+Smart Array P212
+Smart Array P410
+Smart Array P410i
+Smart Array P411
+Smart Array P812
+Smart Array P712m
+Smart Array P711m
+StorageWorks P1210m
+
+Additionally, older Smart Arrays may work with the hpsa driver if the kernel
+boot parameter "hpsa_allow_any=1" is specified, however these are not tested
+nor supported by HP with this driver. For older Smart Arrays, the cciss
+driver should still be used.
+
+The "hpsa_simple_mode=1" boot parameter may be used to prevent the driver from
+putting the controller into "performant" mode. The difference is that with simple
+mode, each command completion requires an interrupt, while with "performant mode"
+(the default, and ordinarily better performing) it is possible to have multiple
+command completions indicated by a single interrupt.
+
+HPSA specific entries in /sys
+-----------------------------
+
+ In addition to the generic SCSI attributes available in /sys, hpsa supports
+ the following attributes:
+
+ HPSA specific host attributes:
+ ------------------------------
+
+ /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/rescan
+ /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/firmware_revision
+ /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/resettable
+ /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/transport_mode
+
+ the host "rescan" attribute is a write only attribute. Writing to this
+ attribute will cause the driver to scan for new, changed, or removed devices
+ (e.g. hot-plugged tape drives, or newly configured or deleted logical drives,
+ etc.) and notify the SCSI midlayer of any changes detected. Normally this is
+ triggered automatically by HP's Array Configuration Utility (either the GUI or
+ command line variety) so for logical drive changes, the user should not
+ normally have to use this. It may be useful when hot plugging devices like
+ tape drives, or entire storage boxes containing pre-configured logical drives.
+
+ The "firmware_revision" attribute contains the firmware version of the Smart Array.
+ For example:
+
+ root@host:/sys/class/scsi_host/host4# cat firmware_revision
+ 7.14
+
+ The transport_mode indicates whether the controller is in "performant"
+ or "simple" mode. This is controlled by the "hpsa_simple_mode" module
+ parameter.
+
+ The "resettable" read-only attribute indicates whether a particular
+ controller is able to honor the "reset_devices" kernel parameter. If the
+ device is resettable, this file will contain a "1", otherwise, a "0". This
+ parameter is used by kdump, for example, to reset the controller at driver
+ load time to eliminate any outstanding commands on the controller and get the
+ controller into a known state so that the kdump initiated i/o will work right
+ and not be disrupted in any way by stale commands or other stale state
+ remaining on the controller from the previous kernel. This attribute enables
+ kexec tools to warn the user if they attempt to designate a device which is
+ unable to honor the reset_devices kernel parameter as a dump device.
+
+ HPSA specific disk attributes:
+ ------------------------------
+
+ /sys/class/scsi_disk/c:b:t:l/device/unique_id
+ /sys/class/scsi_disk/c:b:t:l/device/raid_level
+ /sys/class/scsi_disk/c:b:t:l/device/lunid
+
+ (where c:b:t:l are the controller, bus, target and lun of the device)
+
+ For example:
+
+ root@host:/sys/class/scsi_disk/4:0:0:0/device# cat unique_id
+ 600508B1001044395355323037570F77
+ root@host:/sys/class/scsi_disk/4:0:0:0/device# cat lunid
+ 0x0000004000000000
+ root@host:/sys/class/scsi_disk/4:0:0:0/device# cat raid_level
+ RAID 0
+
+HPSA specific ioctls:
+---------------------
+
+ For compatibility with applications written for the cciss driver, many, but
+ not all of the ioctls supported by the cciss driver are also supported by the
+ hpsa driver. The data structures used by these are described in
+ include/linux/cciss_ioctl.h
+
+ CCISS_DEREGDISK
+ CCISS_REGNEWDISK
+ CCISS_REGNEWD
+
+ The above three ioctls all do exactly the same thing, which is to cause the driver
+ to rescan for new devices. This does exactly the same thing as writing to the
+ hpsa specific host "rescan" attribute.
+
+ CCISS_GETPCIINFO
+
+ Returns PCI domain, bus, device and function and "board ID" (PCI subsystem ID).
+
+ CCISS_GETDRIVVER
+
+ Returns driver version in three bytes encoded as:
+ (major_version << 16) | (minor_version << 8) | (subminor_version)
+
+ CCISS_PASSTHRU
+ CCISS_BIG_PASSTHRU
+
+ Allows "BMIC" and "CISS" commands to be passed through to the Smart Array.
+ These are used extensively by the HP Array Configuration Utility, SNMP storage
+ agents, etc. See cciss_vol_status at http://cciss.sf.net for some examples.

+I/O Request Workflow of Not Marvell Frey
+------------------------------------------
+
+All queued requests are handled via inbound/outbound queue port.
+A request packet can be allocated in either IOP or host memory.
+
+To send a request to the controller:
+
+ - Get a free request packet by reading the inbound queue port or
+ allocate a free request in host DMA coherent memory.
+
+ The value returned from the inbound queue port is an offset
+ relative to the IOP BAR0.
+
+ Requests allocated in host memory must be aligned on 32-bytes boundary.
+
+ - Fill the packet.
+
+ - Post the packet to IOP by writing it to inbound queue. For requests
+ allocated in IOP memory, write the offset to inbound queue port. For
+ requests allocated in host memory, write (0x80000000|(bus_addr>>5))
+ to the inbound queue port.
+
+ - The IOP process the request. When the request is completed, it
+ will be put into outbound queue. An outbound interrupt will be
+ generated.
+
+ For requests allocated in IOP memory, the request offset is posted to
+ outbound queue.
+
+ For requests allocated in host memory, (0x80000000|(bus_addr>>5))
+ is posted to the outbound queue. If IOP_REQUEST_FLAG_OUTPUT_CONTEXT
+ flag is set in the request, the low 32-bit context value will be
+ posted instead.
+
+ - The host read the outbound queue and complete the request.
+
+ For requests allocated in IOP memory, the host driver free the request
+ by writing it to the outbound queue.
+
+Non-queued requests (reset/flush etc) can be sent via inbound message
+register 0. An outbound message with the same value indicates the completion
+of an inbound message.
+
+
+I/O Request Workflow of Marvell Frey
+--------------------------------------
+
+All queued requests are handled via inbound/outbound list.
+
+To send a request to the controller:
+
+ - Allocate a free request in host DMA coherent memory.
+
+ Requests allocated in host memory must be aligned on 32-bytes boundary.
+
+ - Fill the request with index of the request in the flag.
+
+ Fill a free inbound list unit with the physical address and the size of
+ the request.
+
+ Set up the inbound list write pointer with the index of previous unit,
+ round to 0 if the index reaches the supported count of requests.
+
+ - Post the inbound list writer pointer to IOP.
+
+ - The IOP process the request. When the request is completed, the flag of
+ the request with or-ed IOPMU_QUEUE_MASK_HOST_BITS will be put into a
+ free outbound list unit and the index of the outbound list unit will be
+ put into the copy pointer shadow register. An outbound interrupt will be
+ generated.

+ - The host read the outbound list copy pointer shadow register and compare
+ with previous saved read ponter N. If they are different, the host will
+ read the (N+1)th outbound list unit.

+ The host get the index of the request from the (N+1)th outbound list
+ unit and complete the request.
+
+Non-queued requests (reset communication/reset/flush etc) can be sent via PCIe

+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.33 - 26 Aug 98
+
+ Interrupt management in this driver has become, over
+ time, increasingly odd and difficult to explain - this
+ has been mostly due to my own mental inadequacies. In
+ recent kernels, it has failed to function at all when
+ compiled for SMP. I've fixed that problem, and after
+ taking a fresh look at interrupts in general, greatly
+ reduced the number of places where they're fiddled
+ with. Done some heavy testing and it looks very good.
+ The driver now makes use of the __initfunc() and
+ __initdata macros to save about 4k of kernel memory.
+ Once again, the same code works for both 2.0.xx and
+ 2.1.xx kernels.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.32 - 28 Mar 98
+
+ Removed the check for legal IN2000 hardware versions:
+ It appears that the driver works fine with serial
+ EPROMs (the 8-pin chip that defines hardware rev) as
+ old as 2.1, so we'll assume that all cards are OK.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.31 - 6 Jul 97
+
+ Fixed a bug that caused incorrect SCSI status bytes to be
+ returned from commands sent to LUNs greater than 0. This
+ means that CDROM changers work now! Fixed a bug in the
+ handling of command-line arguments when loaded as a module.
+ Also put all the header data in in2000.h where it belongs.
+ There are no longer any differences between this driver in
+ the 2.1.xx source tree and the 2.0.xx tree, as of 2.0.31
+ and 2.1.45 (or is it .46?) - this makes things much easier
+ for me...
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.30 - 14 Oct 96
+
+ Fixed a bug in the code that sets the transfer direction
+ bit (DESTID_DPD in the WD_DESTINATION_ID register). There
+ are quite a few SCSI commands that do a write-to-device;
+ now we deal with all of them correctly. Thanks to Joerg
+ Dorchain for catching this one.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.29 - 24 Sep 96
+
+ The memory-mapped hardware on the card is now accessed via
+ the 'readb()' and 'readl()' macros - required by the new
+ memory management scheme in the 2.1.x kernel series.
+ As suggested by Andries Brouwer, 'bios_param()' no longer
+ forces an artificial 1023 track limit on drives. Also
+ removed some kludge-code left over from struggles with
+ older (buggy) compilers.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.28 - 07 May 96
+
+ Tightened up the "interrupts enabled/disabled" discipline
+ in 'in2000_queuecommand()' and maybe 1 or 2 other places.
+ I _think_ it may have been a little too lax, causing an
+ occasional crash during full moon. A fully functional
+ /proc interface is now in place - if you want to play
+ with it, start by doing 'cat /proc/scsi/in2000/0'. You
+ can also use it to change a few run-time parameters on
+ the fly, but it's mostly for debugging. The curious
+ should take a good look at 'in2000_proc_info()' in the
+ in2000.c file to get an understanding of what it's all
+ about; I figure that people who are really into it will
+ want to add features suited to their own needs...
+ Also, sync is now DISABLED by default.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.27 - 10 Apr 96
+
+ Fixed a well-hidden bug in the adaptive-disconnect code
+ that would show up every now and then during extreme
+ heavy loads involving 2 or more simultaneously active
+ devices. Thanks to Joe Mack for keeping my nose to the
+ grindstone on this one.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.26 - 07 Mar 96
+
+ 1.25 had a nasty bug that bit people with swap partitions
+ and tape drives. Also, in my attempt to guess my way
+ through Intel assembly language, I made an error in the
+ inline code for IO writes. Made a few other changes and
+ repairs - this version (fingers crossed) should work well.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.25 - 05 Mar 96
+
+ Kernel 1.3.70 interrupt mods added; old kernels still OK.
+ Big help from Bill Earnest and David Willmore on speed
+ testing and optimizing: I think there's a real improvement
+ in this area.
+ New! User-friendly command-line interface for LILO and
+ module loading - the old method is gone, so you'll need
+ to read the comments for 'setup_strings' near the top
+ of in2000.c. For people with CDROM's or other devices
+ that have a tough time with sync negotiation, you can
+ now selectively disable sync on individual devices -
+ search for the 'nosync' keyword in the command-line
+ comments. Some of you disable the BIOS on the card, which
+ caused the auto-detect function to fail; there is now a
+ command-line option to force detection of a ROM-less card.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.24a - 24 Feb 96
+
+ There was a bug in the synchronous transfer code. Only
+ a few people downloaded before I caught it - could have
+ been worse.
+
+UPDATE NEWS: version 1.24 - 23 Feb 96
+
+ Lots of good changes. Advice from Bill Earnest resulted
+ in much better detection of cards, more efficient usage
+ of the fifo, and (hopefully) faster data transfers. The
+ jury is still out on speed - I hope it's improved some.
+ One nifty new feature is a cool way of doing disconnect/
+ reselect. The driver defaults to what I'm calling
+ 'adaptive disconnect' - meaning that each command is
+ evaluated individually as to whether or not it should be
+ run with the option to disconnect/reselect (if the device
+ chooses), or as a "SCSI-bus-hog". When several devices
+ are operating simultaneously, disconnects are usually an
+ advantage. In a single device system, or if only 1 device
+ is being accessed, transfers usually go faster if disconnects
+ are not allowed.
+
+
+
+The default arguments (you get these when you don't give an 'in2000'
+command-line argument, or you give a blank argument) will cause
+the driver to do adaptive disconnect, synchronous transfers, and a
+minimum of debug messages. If you want to fool with the options,
+search for 'setup_strings' near the top of the in2000.c file and
+check the 'hostdata->args' section in in2000.h - but be warned! Not
+everything is working yet (some things will never work, probably).
+I believe that disabling disconnects (DIS_NEVER) will allow you
+to choose a LEVEL2 value higher than 'L2_BASIC', but I haven't
+spent a lot of time testing this. You might try 'ENABLE_CLUSTERING'
+to see what happens: my tests showed little difference either way.
+There's also a define called 'DEFAULT_SX_PER'; this sets the data
+transfer speed for the asynchronous mode. I've put it at 500 ns
+despite the fact that the card could handle settings of 376 or
+252, because higher speeds may be a problem with poor quality
+cables or improper termination; 500 ns is a compromise. You can
+choose your own default through the command-line with the
+'period' keyword.

+SAS Layer
+---------
+
+The SAS Layer is a management infrastructure which manages
+SAS LLDDs. It sits between SCSI Core and SAS LLDDs. The
+layout is as follows: while SCSI Core is concerned with
+SAM/SPC issues, and a SAS LLDD+sequencer is concerned with
+phy/OOB/link management, the SAS layer is concerned with:
+
+ * SAS Phy/Port/HA event management (LLDD generates,
+ SAS Layer processes),
+ * SAS Port management (creation/destruction),
+ * SAS Domain discovery and revalidation,
+ * SAS Domain device management,
+ * SCSI Host registration/unregistration,
+ * Device registration with SCSI Core (SAS) or libata
+ (SATA), and
+ * Expander management and exporting expander control
+ to user space.
+
+A SAS LLDD is a PCI device driver. It is concerned with
+phy/OOB management, and vendor specific tasks and generates
+events to the SAS layer.
+
+The SAS Layer does most SAS tasks as outlined in the SAS 1.1
+spec.
+
+The sas_ha_struct describes the SAS LLDD to the SAS layer.
+Most of it is used by the SAS Layer but a few fields need to
+be initialized by the LLDDs.
+
+After initializing your hardware, from the probe() function
+you call sas_register_ha(). It will register your LLDD with
+the SCSI subsystem, creating a SCSI host and it will
+register your SAS driver with the sysfs SAS tree it creates.
+It will then return. Then you enable your phys to actually
+start OOB (at which point your driver will start calling the
+notify_* event callbacks).
+
+Structure descriptions:
+
+struct sas_phy --------------------
+Normally this is statically embedded to your driver's
+phy structure:
+ struct my_phy {
+ blah;
+ struct sas_phy sas_phy;
+ bleh;
+ };
+And then all the phys are an array of my_phy in your HA
+struct (shown below).
+
+Then as you go along and initialize your phys you also
+initialize the sas_phy struct, along with your own
+phy structure.
+
+In general, the phys are managed by the LLDD and the ports
+are managed by the SAS layer. So the phys are initialized
+and updated by the LLDD and the ports are initialized and
+updated by the SAS layer.
+
+There is a scheme where the LLDD can RW certain fields,
+and the SAS layer can only read such ones, and vice versa.
+The idea is to avoid unnecessary locking.
+
+enabled -- must be set (0/1)
+id -- must be set [0,MAX_PHYS)
+class, proto, type, role, oob_mode, linkrate -- must be set
+oob_mode -- you set this when OOB has finished and then notify
+the SAS Layer.
+
+sas_addr -- this normally points to an array holding the sas
+address of the phy, possibly somewhere in your my_phy
+struct.
+
+attached_sas_addr -- set this when you (LLDD) receive an
+IDENTIFY frame or a FIS frame, _before_ notifying the SAS
+layer. The idea is that sometimes the LLDD may want to fake
+or provide a different SAS address on that phy/port and this
+allows it to do this. At best you should copy the sas
+address from the IDENTIFY frame or maybe generate a SAS
+address for SATA directly attached devices. The Discover
+process may later change this.
+
+frame_rcvd -- this is where you copy the IDENTIFY/FIS frame
+when you get it; you lock, copy, set frame_rcvd_size and
+unlock the lock, and then call the event. It is a pointer
+since there's no way to know your hw frame size _exactly_,
+so you define the actual array in your phy struct and let
+this pointer point to it. You copy the frame from your
+DMAable memory to that area holding the lock.
+
+sas_prim -- this is where primitives go when they're
+received. See sas.h. Grab the lock, set the primitive,
+release the lock, notify.
+
+port -- this points to the sas_port if the phy belongs
+to a port -- the LLDD only reads this. It points to the
+sas_port this phy is part of. Set by the SAS Layer.
+
+ha -- may be set; the SAS layer sets it anyway.
+
+lldd_phy -- you should set this to point to your phy so you
+can find your way around faster when the SAS layer calls one
+of your callbacks and passes you a phy. If the sas_phy is
+embedded you can also use container_of -- whatever you
+prefer.
+
+
+struct sas_port --------------------
+The LLDD doesn't set any fields of this struct -- it only
+reads them. They should be self explanatory.
+
+phy_mask is 32 bit, this should be enough for now, as I
+haven't heard of a HA having more than 8 phys.
+
+lldd_port -- I haven't found use for that -- maybe other
+LLDD who wish to have internal port representation can make
+use of this.
+
+
+struct sas_ha_struct --------------------
+It normally is statically declared in your own LLDD
+structure describing your adapter:
+struct my_sas_ha {
+ blah;
+ struct sas_ha_struct sas_ha;
+ struct my_phy phys[MAX_PHYS];
+ struct sas_port sas_ports[MAX_PHYS]; /* (1) */
+ bleh;
+};
+
+(1) If your LLDD doesn't have its own port representation.
+
+What needs to be initialized (sample function given below).
+
+pcidev
+sas_addr -- since the SAS layer doesn't want to mess with
+ memory allocation, etc, this points to statically
+ allocated array somewhere (say in your host adapter
+ structure) and holds the SAS address of the host
+ adapter as given by you or the manufacturer, etc.
+sas_port
+sas_phy -- an array of pointers to structures. (see
+ note above on sas_addr).
+ These must be set. See more notes below.
+num_phys -- the number of phys present in the sas_phy array,
+ and the number of ports present in the sas_port
+ array. There can be a maximum num_phys ports (one per
+ port) so we drop the num_ports, and only use
+ num_phys.
+
+The event interface:
+
+ /* LLDD calls these to notify the class of an event. */
+ void (*notify_ha_event)(struct sas_ha_struct *, enum ha_event);
+ void (*notify_port_event)(struct sas_phy *, enum port_event);
+ void (*notify_phy_event)(struct sas_phy *, enum phy_event);
+
+When sas_register_ha() returns, those are set and can be
+called by the LLDD to notify the SAS layer of such events
+the SAS layer.
+
+The port notification:
+
+ /* The class calls these to notify the LLDD of an event. */
+ void (*lldd_port_formed)(struct sas_phy *);
+ void (*lldd_port_deformed)(struct sas_phy *);
+
+If the LLDD wants notification when a port has been formed
+or deformed it sets those to a function satisfying the type.
+
+A SAS LLDD should also implement at least one of the Task
+Management Functions (TMFs) described in SAM:
+
+ /* Task Management Functions. Must be called from process context. */
+ int (*lldd_abort_task)(struct sas_task *);
+ int (*lldd_abort_task_set)(struct domain_device *, u8 *lun);
+ int (*lldd_clear_aca)(struct domain_device *, u8 *lun);
+ int (*lldd_clear_task_set)(struct domain_device *, u8 *lun);
+ int (*lldd_I_T_nexus_reset)(struct domain_device *);
+ int (*lldd_lu_reset)(struct domain_device *, u8 *lun);
+ int (*lldd_query_task)(struct sas_task *);
+
+For more information please read SAM from T10.org.
+
+Port and Adapter management:
+
+ /* Port and Adapter management */
+ int (*lldd_clear_nexus_port)(struct sas_port *);
+ int (*lldd_clear_nexus_ha)(struct sas_ha_struct *);
+
+A SAS LLDD should implement at least one of those.
+
+Phy management:
+
+ /* Phy management */
+ int (*lldd_control_phy)(struct sas_phy *, enum phy_func);
+
+lldd_ha -- set this to point to your HA struct. You can also
+use container_of if you embedded it as shown above.
+
+A sample initialization and registration function
+can look like this (called last thing from probe())
+*but* before you enable the phys to do OOB:
+
+static int register_sas_ha(struct my_sas_ha *my_ha)
+{
+ int i;
+ static struct sas_phy *sas_phys[MAX_PHYS];
+ static struct sas_port *sas_ports[MAX_PHYS];
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.sas_addr = &my_ha->sas_addr[0];
+
+ for (i = 0; i < MAX_PHYS; i++) {
+ sas_phys[i] = &my_ha->phys[i].sas_phy;
+ sas_ports[i] = &my_ha->sas_ports[i];
+ }
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.sas_phy = sas_phys;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.sas_port = sas_ports;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.num_phys = MAX_PHYS;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_port_formed = my_port_formed;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_dev_found = my_dev_found;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_dev_gone = my_dev_gone;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_max_execute_num = lldd_max_execute_num; (1)
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_queue_size = ha_can_queue;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_execute_task = my_execute_task;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_abort_task = my_abort_task;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_abort_task_set = my_abort_task_set;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_clear_aca = my_clear_aca;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_clear_task_set = my_clear_task_set;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_I_T_nexus_reset= NULL; (2)
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_lu_reset = my_lu_reset;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_query_task = my_query_task;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_clear_nexus_port = my_clear_nexus_port;
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_clear_nexus_ha = my_clear_nexus_ha;
+
+ my_ha->sas_ha.lldd_control_phy = my_control_phy;
+
+ return sas_register_ha(&my_ha->sas_ha);
+}
+
+(1) This is normally a LLDD parameter, something of the
+lines of a task collector. What it tells the SAS Layer is
+whether the SAS layer should run in Direct Mode (default:
+value 0 or 1) or Task Collector Mode (value greater than 1).
+
+In Direct Mode, the SAS Layer calls Execute Task as soon as
+it has a command to send to the SDS, _and_ this is a single
+command, i.e. not linked.
+
+Some hardware (e.g. aic94xx) has the capability to DMA more
+than one task at a time (interrupt) from host memory. Task
+Collector Mode is an optional feature for HAs which support
+this in their hardware. (Again, it is completely optional
+even if your hardware supports it.)
+
+In Task Collector Mode, the SAS Layer would do _natural_
+coalescing of tasks and at the appropriate moment it would
+call your driver to DMA more than one task in a single HA
+interrupt. DMBS may want to use this by insmod/modprobe
+setting the lldd_max_execute_num to something greater than
+1.
+
+(2) SAS 1.1 does not define I_T Nexus Reset TMF.
+
+Events
+------
+
+Events are _the only way_ a SAS LLDD notifies the SAS layer
+of anything. There is no other method or way a LLDD to tell
+the SAS layer of anything happening internally or in the SAS
+domain.
+
+Phy events:
+ PHYE_LOSS_OF_SIGNAL, (C)
+ PHYE_OOB_DONE,
+ PHYE_OOB_ERROR, (C)
+ PHYE_SPINUP_HOLD.
+
+Port events, passed on a _phy_:
+ PORTE_BYTES_DMAED, (M)
+ PORTE_BROADCAST_RCVD, (E)
+ PORTE_LINK_RESET_ERR, (C)
+ PORTE_TIMER_EVENT, (C)
+ PORTE_HARD_RESET.
+
+Host Adapter event:
+ HAE_RESET
+
+A SAS LLDD should be able to generate
+ - at least one event from group C (choice),
+ - events marked M (mandatory) are mandatory (only one),
+ - events marked E (expander) if it wants the SAS layer
+ to handle domain revalidation (only one such).
+ - Unmarked events are optional.
+
+Meaning:
+
+HAE_RESET -- when your HA got internal error and was reset.
+
+PORTE_BYTES_DMAED -- on receiving an IDENTIFY/FIS frame
+PORTE_BROADCAST_RCVD -- on receiving a primitive
+PORTE_LINK_RESET_ERR -- timer expired, loss of signal, loss
+of DWS, etc. (*)
+PORTE_TIMER_EVENT -- DWS reset timeout timer expired (*)
+PORTE_HARD_RESET -- Hard Reset primitive received.
+
+PHYE_LOSS_OF_SIGNAL -- the device is gone (*)
+PHYE_OOB_DONE -- OOB went fine and oob_mode is valid
+PHYE_OOB_ERROR -- Error while doing OOB, the device probably
+got disconnected. (*)
+PHYE_SPINUP_HOLD -- SATA is present, COMWAKE not sent.
+
+(*) should set/clear the appropriate fields in the phy,
+ or alternatively call the inlined sas_phy_disconnected()
+ which is just a helper, from their tasklet.
+
+The Execute Command SCSI RPC:
+
+ int (*lldd_execute_task)(struct sas_task *, int num,
+ unsigned long gfp_flags);
+
+Used to queue a task to the SAS LLDD. @task is the tasks to
+be executed. @num should be the number of tasks being
+queued at this function call (they are linked listed via
+task::list), @gfp_mask should be the gfp_mask defining the
+context of the caller.
+
+This function should implement the Execute Command SCSI RPC,
+or if you're sending a SCSI Task as linked commands, you
+should also use this function.
+
+That is, when lldd_execute_task() is called, the command(s)
+go out on the transport *immediately*. There is *no*
+queuing of any sort and at any level in a SAS LLDD.
+
+The use of task::list is two-fold, one for linked commands,
+the other discussed below.
+
+It is possible to queue up more than one task at a time, by
+initializing the list element of struct sas_task, and
+passing the number of tasks enlisted in this manner in num.
+
+Returns: -SAS_QUEUE_FULL, -ENOMEM, nothing was queued;
+ 0, the task(s) were queued.
+
+If you want to pass num > 1, then either
+A) you're the only caller of this function and keep track
+ of what you've queued to the LLDD, or
+B) you know what you're doing and have a strategy of
+ retrying.
+
+As opposed to queuing one task at a time (function call),
+batch queuing of tasks, by having num > 1, greatly
+simplifies LLDD code, sequencer code, and _hardware design_,
+and has some performance advantages in certain situations
+(DBMS).
+
+The LLDD advertises if it can take more than one command at
+a time at lldd_execute_task(), by setting the
+lldd_max_execute_num parameter (controlled by "collector"
+module parameter in aic94xx SAS LLDD).
+
+You should leave this to the default 1, unless you know what
+you're doing.
+
+This is a function of the LLDD, to which the SAS layer can
+cater to.
+
+int lldd_queue_size
+ The host adapter's queue size. This is the maximum
+number of commands the lldd can have pending to domain
+devices on behalf of all upper layers submitting through
+lldd_execute_task().
+
+You really want to set this to something (much) larger than
+1.
+
+This _really_ has absolutely nothing to do with queuing.
+There is no queuing in SAS LLDDs.
+

+
+DISCOVERY
+---------
+
+The sysfs tree has the following purposes:
+ a) It shows you the physical layout of the SAS domain at
+ the current time, i.e. how the domain looks in the
+ physical world right now.
+ b) Shows some device parameters _at_discovery_time_.
+
+This is a link to the tree(1) program, very useful in
+viewing the SAS domain:
+ftp://mama.indstate.edu/linux/tree/
+I expect user space applications to actually create a
+graphical interface of this.
+
+That is, the sysfs domain tree doesn't show or keep state if
+you e.g., change the meaning of the READY LED MEANING
+setting, but it does show you the current connection status
+of the domain device.
+
+Keeping internal device state changes is responsibility of
+upper layers (Command set drivers) and user space.
+
+When a device or devices are unplugged from the domain, this
+is reflected in the sysfs tree immediately, and the device(s)
+removed from the system.
+
+The structure domain_device describes any device in the SAS
+domain. It is completely managed by the SAS layer. A task
+points to a domain device, this is how the SAS LLDD knows
+where to send the task(s) to. A SAS LLDD only reads the
+contents of the domain_device structure, but it never creates
+or destroys one.
+
+Expander management from User Space
+-----------------------------------
+
+In each expander directory in sysfs, there is a file called
+"smp_portal". It is a binary sysfs attribute file, which
+implements an SMP portal (Note: this is *NOT* an SMP port),
+to which user space applications can send SMP requests and
+receive SMP responses.
+
+Functionality is deceptively simple:
+
+1. Build the SMP frame you want to send. The format and layout
+ is described in the SAS spec. Leave the CRC field equal 0.
+open(2)
+2. Open the expander's SMP portal sysfs file in RW mode.
+write(2)
+3. Write the frame you built in 1.
+read(2)
+4. Read the amount of data you expect to receive for the frame you built.
+ If you receive different amount of data you expected to receive,
+ then there was some kind of error.
+close(2)
+All this process is shown in detail in the function do_smp_func()
+and its callers, in the file "expander_conf.c".
+
+The kernel functionality is implemented in the file
+"sas_expander.c".
+
+The program "expander_conf.c" implements this. It takes one
+argument, the sysfs file name of the SMP portal to the
+expander, and gives expander information, including routing
+tables.
+
+The SMP portal gives you complete control of the expander,
+so please be careful.

+
+LPFC Driver Release Notes:
+
+=============================================================================
+
+
+ IMPORTANT:
+
+ Starting in the 8.0.17 release, the driver began to be targeted strictly
+ toward the upstream kernel. As such, we removed #ifdefs for older kernels
+ (pre 2.6.10). The 8.0.16 release should be used if the driver is to be
+ run on one of the older kernels.
+
+ The proposed modifications to the transport layer for FC remote ports
+ and extended attribute support is now part of the upstream kernel
+ as of 2.6.12. We no longer need to provide patches for this support,
+ nor a *full* version which has old an new kernel support.
+
+ The driver now requires a 2.6.12 (if pre-release, 2.6.12-rc1) or later
+ kernel.
+
+ Please heed these dependencies....
+
+
+ ********************************************************************
+
+
+The following information is provided for additional background on the
+history of the driver as we push for upstream acceptance.
+
+Cable pull and temporary device Loss:
+
+ In older revisions of the lpfc driver, the driver internally queued i/o
+ received from the midlayer. In the cases where a cable was pulled, link
+ jitter, or a device temporarily loses connectivity (due to its cable
+ being removed, a switch rebooting, or a device reboot), the driver could
+ hide the disappearance of the device from the midlayer. I/O's issued to
+ the LLDD would simply be queued for a short duration, allowing the device
+ to reappear or link come back alive, with no inadvertent side effects
+ to the system. If the driver did not hide these conditions, i/o would be
+ errored by the driver, the mid-layer would exhaust its retries, and the
+ device would be taken offline. Manual intervention would be required to
+ re-enable the device.
+
+ The community supporting kernel.org has driven an effort to remove
+ internal queuing from all LLDDs. The philosophy is that internal
+ queuing is unnecessary as the block layer already performs the
+ queuing. Removing the queues from the LLDD makes a more predictable
+ and more simple LLDD.
+
+ As a potential new addition to kernel.org, the 8.x driver was asked to
+ have all internal queuing removed. Emulex complied with this request.
+ In explaining the impacts of this change, Emulex has worked with the
+ community in modifying the behavior of the SCSI midlayer so that SCSI
+ devices can be temporarily suspended while transport events (such as
+ those described) can occur.
+
+ The proposed patch was posted to the linux-scsi mailing list. The patch
+ is contained in the 2.6.10-rc2 (and later) patch kits. As such, this
+ patch is part of the standard 2.6.10 kernel.
+
+ By default, the driver expects the patches for block/unblock interfaces
+ to be present in the kernel. No #define needs to be set to enable support.
+
+
+Kernel Support
+
+ This source package is targeted for the upstream kernel only. (See notes
+ at the top of this file). It relies on interfaces that are slowing
+ migrating into the kernel.org kernel.
+
+ At this time, the driver requires the 2.6.12 (if pre-release, 2.6.12-rc1)
+ kernel.
+
+ If a driver is needed for older kernels please utilize the 8.0.16
+ driver sources.
+
+
+Patches
+
+ Thankfully, at this time, patches are not needed.

+ Notes on Management Module
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Overview:
+--------
+
+Different classes of controllers from LSI Logic accept and respond to the
+user applications in a similar way. They understand the same firmware control
+commands. Furthermore, the applications also can treat different classes of
+the controllers uniformly. Hence it is logical to have a single module that
+interfaces with the applications on one side and all the low level drivers
+on the other.
+
+The advantages, though obvious, are listed for completeness:
+
+ i. Avoid duplicate code from the low level drivers.
+ ii. Unburden the low level drivers from having to export the
+ character node device and related handling.
+ iii. Implement any policy mechanisms in one place.
+ iv. Applications have to interface with only module instead of
+ multiple low level drivers.
+
+Currently this module (called Common Management Module) is used only to issue
+ioctl commands. But this module is envisioned to handle all user space level
+interactions. So any 'proc', 'sysfs' implementations will be localized in this
+common module.
+
+Credits:
+-------
+
+"Shared code in a third module, a "library module", is an acceptable
+solution. modprobe automatically loads dependent modules, so users
+running "modprobe driver1" or "modprobe driver2" would automatically
+load the shared library module."
+
+ - Jeff Garzik (jgarzik@pobox.com), 02.25.2004 LKML
+
+"As Jeff hinted, if your userspace<->driver API is consistent between
+your new MPT-based RAID controllers and your existing megaraid driver,
+then perhaps you need a single small helper module (lsiioctl or some
+better name), loaded by both mptraid and megaraid automatically, which
+handles registering the /dev/megaraid node dynamically. In this case,
+both mptraid and megaraid would register with lsiioctl for each
+adapter discovered, and lsiioctl would essentially be a switch,
+redirecting userspace tool ioctls to the appropriate driver."
+
+ - Matt Domsch, (Matt_Domsch@dell.com), 02.25.2004 LKML
+
+Design:
+------
+
+The Common Management Module is implemented in megaraid_mm.[ch] files. This
+module acts as a registry for low level hba drivers. The low level drivers
+(currently only megaraid) register each controller with the common module.
+
+The applications interface with the common module via the character device
+node exported by the module.
+
+The lower level drivers now understand only a new improved ioctl packet called
+uioc_t. The management module converts the older ioctl packets from the older
+applications into uioc_t. After driver handles the uioc_t, the common module
+will convert that back into the old format before returning to applications.
+
+As new applications evolve and replace the old ones, the old packet format
+will be retired.
+
+Common module dedicates one uioc_t packet to each controller registered. This
+can easily be more than one. But since megaraid is the only low level driver
+today, and it can handle only one ioctl, there is no reason to have more. But
+as new controller classes get added, this will be tuned appropriately.

+===============================================================================
+
+1. Introduction
+
+The initial Linux ncr53c8xx driver has been a port of the ncr driver from
+FreeBSD that has been achieved in November 1995 by:
+ Gerard Roudier <groudier@free.fr>
+
+The original driver has been written for 386bsd and FreeBSD by:
+ Wolfgang Stanglmeier <wolf@cologne.de>
+ Stefan Esser <se@mi.Uni-Koeln.de>
+
+It is now available as a bundle of 2 drivers:
+
+- ncr53c8xx generic driver that supports all the SYM53C8XX family including
+ the earliest 810 rev. 1, the latest 896 (2 channel LVD SCSI controller) and
+ the new 895A (1 channel LVD SCSI controller).
+- sym53c8xx enhanced driver (a.k.a. 896 drivers) that drops support of oldest
+ chips in order to gain advantage of new features, as LOAD/STORE instructions
+ available since the 810A and hardware phase mismatch available with the
+ 896 and the 895A.
+
+You can find technical information about the NCR 8xx family in the
+PCI-HOWTO written by Michael Will and in the SCSI-HOWTO written by
+Drew Eckhardt.
+
+Information about new chips is available at LSILOGIC web server:
+
+ http://www.lsilogic.com/
+
+SCSI standard documentations are available at SYMBIOS ftp server:
+
+ ftp://ftp.symbios.com/
+
+Useful SCSI tools written by Eric Youngdale are available at tsx-11:
+
+ ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi/scsiinfo-X.Y.tar.gz
+ ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi/scsidev-X.Y.tar.gz
+
+These tools are not ALPHA but quite clean and work quite well.
+It is essential you have the 'scsiinfo' package.
+
+This short documentation describes the features of the generic and enhanced
+drivers, configuration parameters and control commands available through
+the proc SCSI file system read / write operations.
+
+This driver has been tested OK with linux/i386, Linux/Alpha and Linux/PPC.
+
+Latest driver version and patches are available at:
+
+ ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/people/gerard-roudier
+or
+ ftp://ftp.symbios.com/mirror/ftp.tux.org/pub/tux/roudier/drivers
+
+I am not a native speaker of English and there are probably lots of
+mistakes in this README file. Any help will be welcome.
+
+
+2. Supported chips and SCSI features
+
+The following features are supported for all chips:
+
+ Synchronous negotiation
+ Disconnection
+ Tagged command queuing
+ SCSI parity checking
+ Master parity checking
+
+"Wide negotiation" is supported for chips that allow it. The
+following table shows some characteristics of NCR 8xx family chips
+and what drivers support them.

+
+
+3. Advantages of the enhanced 896 driver
+
+3.1 Optimized SCSI SCRIPTS.
+
+The 810A, 825A, 875, 895, 896 and 895A support new SCSI SCRIPTS instructions
+named LOAD and STORE that allow to move up to 1 DWORD from/to an IO register
+to/from memory much faster that the MOVE MEMORY instruction that is supported
+by the 53c7xx and 53c8xx family.
+The LOAD/STORE instructions support absolute and DSA relative addressing
+modes. The SCSI SCRIPTS had been entirely rewritten using LOAD/STORE instead
+of MOVE MEMORY instructions.
+
+3.2 New features of the SYM53C896 (64 bit PCI dual LVD SCSI controller)
+
+The 896 and the 895A allows handling of the phase mismatch context from
+SCRIPTS (avoids the phase mismatch interrupt that stops the SCSI processor
+until the C code has saved the context of the transfer).
+Implementing this without using LOAD/STORE instructions would be painful
+and I didn't even want to try it.
+
+The 896 chip supports 64 bit PCI transactions and addressing, while the
+895A supports 32 bit PCI transactions and 64 bit addressing.
+The SCRIPTS processor of these chips is not true 64 bit, but uses segment
+registers for bit 32-63. Another interesting feature is that LOAD/STORE
+instructions that address the on-chip RAM (8k) remain internal to the chip.
+
+Due to the use of LOAD/STORE SCRIPTS instructions, this driver does not
+support the following chips:
+- SYM53C810 revision < 0x10 (16)
+- SYM53C815 all revisions
+- SYM53C825 revision < 0x10 (16)
+
+4. Memory mapped I/O versus normal I/O
+
+Memory mapped I/O has less latency than normal I/O. Since
+linux-1.3.x, memory mapped I/O is used rather than normal I/O. Memory
+mapped I/O seems to work fine on most hardware configurations, but
+some poorly designed motherboards may break this feature.
+
+The configuration option CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_IOMAPPED forces the
+driver to use normal I/O in all cases.
+
+
+5. Tagged command queueing
+
+Queuing more than 1 command at a time to a device allows it to perform
+optimizations based on actual head positions and its mechanical
+characteristics. This feature may also reduce average command latency.
+In order to really gain advantage of this feature, devices must have
+a reasonable cache size (No miracle is to be expected for a low-end
+hard disk with 128 KB or less).
+Some known SCSI devices do not properly support tagged command queuing.
+Generally, firmware revisions that fix this kind of problems are available
+at respective vendor web/ftp sites.
+All I can say is that the hard disks I use on my machines behave well with
+this driver with tagged command queuing enabled:
+
+- IBM S12 0662
+- Conner 1080S
+- Quantum Atlas I
+- Quantum Atlas II
+
+If your controller has NVRAM, you can configure this feature per target
+from the user setup tool. The Tekram Setup program allows to tune the
+maximum number of queued commands up to 32. The Symbios Setup only allows
+to enable or disable this feature.
+
+The maximum number of simultaneous tagged commands queued to a device
+is currently set to 8 by default. This value is suitable for most SCSI
+disks. With large SCSI disks (>= 2GB, cache >= 512KB, average seek time
+<= 10 ms), using a larger value may give better performances.
+
+The sym53c8xx driver supports up to 255 commands per device, and the
+generic ncr53c8xx driver supports up to 64, but using more than 32 is
+generally not worth-while, unless you are using a very large disk or disk
+array. It is noticeable that most of recent hard disks seem not to accept
+more than 64 simultaneous commands. So, using more than 64 queued commands
+is probably just resource wasting.
+
+If your controller does not have NVRAM or if it is managed by the SDMS
+BIOS/SETUP, you can configure tagged queueing feature and device queue
+depths from the boot command-line. For example:
+
+ ncr53c8xx=tags:4/t2t3q15-t4q7/t1u0q32
+
+will set tagged commands queue depths as follow:
+
+- target 2 all luns on controller 0 --> 15
+- target 3 all luns on controller 0 --> 15
+- target 4 all luns on controller 0 --> 7
+- target 1 lun 0 on controller 1 --> 32
+- all other target/lun --> 4
+
+In some special conditions, some SCSI disk firmwares may return a
+QUEUE FULL status for a SCSI command. This behaviour is managed by the
+driver using the following heuristic:
+
+- Each time a QUEUE FULL status is returned, tagged queue depth is reduced
+ to the actual number of disconnected commands.
+
+- Every 1000 successfully completed SCSI commands, if allowed by the
+ current limit, the maximum number of queueable commands is incremented.
+
+Since QUEUE FULL status reception and handling is resource wasting, the
+driver notifies by default this problem to user by indicating the actual
+number of commands used and their status, as well as its decision on the
+device queue depth change.
+The heuristic used by the driver in handling QUEUE FULL ensures that the
+impact on performances is not too bad. You can get rid of the messages by
+setting verbose level to zero, as follow:
+
+1st method: boot your system using 'ncr53c8xx=verb:0' option.
+2nd method: apply "setverbose 0" control command to the proc fs entry
+ corresponding to your controller after boot-up.
+
+6. Parity checking
+
+The driver supports SCSI parity checking and PCI bus master parity
+checking. These features must be enabled in order to ensure safe data
+transfers. However, some flawed devices or mother boards will have
+problems with parity. You can disable either PCI parity or SCSI parity
+checking by entering appropriate options from the boot command line.
+(See 10: Boot setup commands).
+
+7. Profiling information
+
+Profiling information is available through the proc SCSI file system.
+Since gathering profiling information may impact performances, this
+feature is disabled by default and requires a compilation configuration
+option to be set to Y.
+
+The device associated with a host has the following pathname:
+
+ /proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/N (N=0,1,2 ....)
+
+Generally, only 1 board is used on hardware configuration, and that device is:
+ /proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+
+However, if the driver has been made as module, the number of the
+hosts is incremented each time the driver is loaded.
+
+In order to display profiling information, just enter:
+
+ cat /proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+
+and you will get something like the following text:
+
+-------------------------------------------------------
+General information:
+ Chip NCR53C810, device id 0x1, revision id 0x2
+ IO port address 0x6000, IRQ number 10
+ Using memory mapped IO at virtual address 0x282c000
+ Synchronous transfer period 25, max commands per lun 4
+Profiling information:
+ num_trans = 18014
+ num_kbytes = 671314
+ num_disc = 25763
+ num_break = 1673
+ num_int = 1685
+ num_fly = 18038
+ ms_setup = 4940
+ ms_data = 369940
+ ms_disc = 183090
+ ms_post = 1320
+-------------------------------------------------------
+
+General information is easy to understand. The device ID and the
+revision ID identify the SCSI chip as follows:
+
+Chip Device id Revision Id
+---- --------- -----------
+810 0x1 < 0x10
+810A 0x1 >= 0x10
+815 0x4
+825 0x3 < 0x10
+860 0x6
+825A 0x3 >= 0x10
+875 0xf
+895 0xc
+
+The profiling information is updated upon completion of SCSI commands.
+A data structure is allocated and zeroed when the host adapter is
+attached. So, if the driver is a module, the profile counters are
+cleared each time the driver is loaded. The "clearprof" command
+allows you to clear these counters at any time.
+
+The following counters are available:
+
+("num" prefix means "number of",
+"ms" means milli-seconds)
+
+num_trans
+ Number of completed commands
+ Example above: 18014 completed commands
+
+num_kbytes
+ Number of kbytes transferred
+ Example above: 671 MB transferred
+
+num_disc
+ Number of SCSI disconnections
+ Example above: 25763 SCSI disconnections
+
+num_break
+ number of script interruptions (phase mismatch)
+ Example above: 1673 script interruptions
+
+num_int
+ Number of interrupts other than "on the fly"
+ Example above: 1685 interruptions not "on the fly"
+
+num_fly
+ Number of interrupts "on the fly"
+ Example above: 18038 interruptions "on the fly"
+
+ms_setup
+ Elapsed time for SCSI commands setups
+ Example above: 4.94 seconds
+
+ms_data
+ Elapsed time for data transfers
+ Example above: 369.94 seconds spent for data transfer
+
+ms_disc
+ Elapsed time for SCSI disconnections
+ Example above: 183.09 seconds spent disconnected
+
+ms_post
+ Elapsed time for command post processing
+ (time from SCSI status get to command completion call)
+ Example above: 1.32 seconds spent for post processing
+
+Due to the 1/100 second tick of the system clock, "ms_post" time may
+be wrong.
+
+In the example above, we got 18038 interrupts "on the fly" and only
+1673 script breaks generally due to disconnections inside a segment
+of the scatter list.
+
+
+8. Control commands
+
+Control commands can be sent to the driver with write operations to
+the proc SCSI file system. The generic command syntax is the
+following:
+
+ echo "<verb> <parameters>" >/proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+ (assumes controller number is 0)
+
+Using "all" for "<target>" parameter with the commands below will
+apply to all targets of the SCSI chain (except the controller).
+
+Available commands:
+
+8.1 Set minimum synchronous period factor
+
+ setsync <target> <period factor>
+
+ target: target number
+ period: minimum synchronous period.
+ Maximum speed = 1000/(4*period factor) except for special
+ cases below.
+
+ Specify a period of 255, to force asynchronous transfer mode.
+
+ 10 means 25 nano-seconds synchronous period
+ 11 means 30 nano-seconds synchronous period
+ 12 means 50 nano-seconds synchronous period
+
+8.2 Set wide size
+
+ setwide <target> <size>
+
+ target: target number
+ size: 0=8 bits, 1=16bits
+
+8.3 Set maximum number of concurrent tagged commands
+
+ settags <target> <tags>
+
+ target: target number
+ tags: number of concurrent tagged commands
+ must not be greater than SCSI_NCR_MAX_TAGS (default: 8)
+
+8.4 Set order type for tagged command
+
+ setorder <order>
+
+ order: 3 possible values:
+ simple: use SIMPLE TAG for all operations (read and write)
+ ordered: use ORDERED TAG for all operations
+ default: use default tag type,
+ SIMPLE TAG for read operations
+ ORDERED TAG for write operations
+
+
+8.5 Set debug mode
+
+ setdebug <list of debug flags>
+
+ Available debug flags:
+ alloc: print info about memory allocations (ccb, lcb)
+ queue: print info about insertions into the command start queue
+ result: print sense data on CHECK CONDITION status
+ scatter: print info about the scatter process
+ scripts: print info about the script binding process
+ tiny: print minimal debugging information
+ timing: print timing information of the NCR chip
+ nego: print information about SCSI negotiations
+ phase: print information on script interruptions
+
+ Use "setdebug" with no argument to reset debug flags.
+
+
+8.6 Clear profile counters
+
+ clearprof
+
+ The profile counters are automatically cleared when the amount of
+ data transferred reaches 1000 GB in order to avoid overflow.
+ The "clearprof" command allows you to clear these counters at any time.
+
+
+8.7 Set flag (no_disc)
+
+ setflag <target> <flag>
+
+ target: target number
+
+ For the moment, only one flag is available:
+
+ no_disc: not allow target to disconnect.
+
+ Do not specify any flag in order to reset the flag. For example:
+ - setflag 4
+ will reset no_disc flag for target 4, so will allow it disconnections.
+ - setflag all
+ will allow disconnection for all devices on the SCSI bus.
+
+
+8.8 Set verbose level
+
+ setverbose #level
+
+ The driver default verbose level is 1. This command allows to change
+ th driver verbose level after boot-up.
+
+8.9 Reset all logical units of a target
+
+ resetdev <target>
+
+ target: target number
+ The driver will try to send a BUS DEVICE RESET message to the target.
+ (Only supported by the SYM53C8XX driver and provided for test purpose)
+
+8.10 Abort all tasks of all logical units of a target
+
+ cleardev <target>
+
+ target: target number
+ The driver will try to send a ABORT message to all the logical units
+ of the target.
+ (Only supported by the SYM53C8XX driver and provided for test purpose)
+
+
+9. Configuration parameters
+
+If the firmware of all your devices is perfect enough, all the
+features supported by the driver can be enabled at start-up. However,
+if only one has a flaw for some SCSI feature, you can disable the
+support by the driver of this feature at linux start-up and enable
+this feature after boot-up only for devices that support it safely.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_IOMAPPED (default answer: n)
+ Answer "y" if you suspect your mother board to not allow memory mapped I/O.
+ May slow down performance a little. This option is required by
+ Linux/PPC and is used no matter what you select here. Linux/PPC
+ suffers no performance loss with this option since all IO is memory
+ mapped anyway.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_DEFAULT_TAGS (default answer: 8)
+ Default tagged command queue depth.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_MAX_TAGS (default answer: 8)
+ This option allows you to specify the maximum number of tagged commands
+ that can be queued to a device. The maximum supported value is 32.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_SYNC (default answer: 5)
+ This option allows you to specify the frequency in MHz the driver
+ will use at boot time for synchronous data transfer negotiations.
+ This frequency can be changed later with the "setsync" control command.
+ 0 means "asynchronous data transfers".
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_FORCE_SYNC_NEGO (default answer: n)
+ Force synchronous negotiation for all SCSI-2 devices.
+ Some SCSI-2 devices do not report this feature in byte 7 of inquiry
+ response but do support it properly (TAMARACK scanners for example).
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_NO_DISCONNECT (default and only reasonable answer: n)
+ If you suspect a device of yours does not properly support disconnections,
+ you can answer "y". Then, all SCSI devices will never disconnect the bus
+ even while performing long SCSI operations.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_SYMBIOS_COMPAT
+ Genuine SYMBIOS boards use GPIO0 in output for controller LED and GPIO3
+ bit as a flag indicating singled-ended/differential interface.
+ If all the boards of your system are genuine SYMBIOS boards or use
+ BIOS and drivers from SYMBIOS, you would want to enable this option.
+ This option must NOT be enabled if your system has at least one 53C8XX
+ based scsi board with a vendor-specific BIOS.
+ For example, Tekram DC-390/U, DC-390/W and DC-390/F scsi controllers
+ use a vendor-specific BIOS and are known to not use SYMBIOS compatible
+ GPIO wiring. So, this option must not be enabled if your system has
+ such a board installed.
+
+CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_NVRAM_DETECT
+ Enable support for reading the serial NVRAM data on Symbios and
+ some Symbios compatible cards, and Tekram DC390W/U/F cards. Useful for
+ systems with more than one Symbios compatible controller where at least
+ one has a serial NVRAM, or for a system with a mixture of Symbios and
+ Tekram cards. Enables setting the boot order of host adaptors
+ to something other than the default order or "reverse probe" order.
+ Also enables Symbios and Tekram cards to be distinguished so
+ CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX_SYMBIOS_COMPAT may be set in a system with a
+ mixture of Symbios and Tekram cards so the Symbios cards can make use of
+ the full range of Symbios features, differential, led pin, without
+ causing problems for the Tekram card(s).
+
+10. Boot setup commands
+
+10.1 Syntax
+
+Setup commands can be passed to the driver either at boot time or as a
+string variable using 'insmod'.
+
+A boot setup command for the ncr53c8xx (sym53c8xx) driver begins with the
+driver name "ncr53c8xx="(sym53c8xx). The kernel syntax parser then expects
+an optional list of integers separated with comma followed by an optional
+list of comma-separated strings. Example of boot setup command under lilo
+prompt:
+
+lilo: linux root=/dev/hda2 ncr53c8xx=tags:4,sync:10,debug:0x200
+
+- enable tagged commands, up to 4 tagged commands queued.
+- set synchronous negotiation speed to 10 Mega-transfers / second.
+- set DEBUG_NEGO flag.
+
+Since comma seems not to be allowed when defining a string variable using
+'insmod', the driver also accepts <space> as option separator.
+The following command will install driver module with the same options as
+above.
+
+ insmod ncr53c8xx.o ncr53c8xx="tags:4 sync:10 debug:0x200"
+
+For the moment, the integer list of arguments is discarded by the driver.
+It will be used in the future in order to allow a per controller setup.
+
+Each string argument must be specified as "keyword:value". Only lower-case
+characters and digits are allowed.
+
+In a system that contains multiple 53C8xx adapters insmod will install the
+specified driver on each adapter. To exclude a chip use the 'excl' keyword.
+
+The sequence of commands,
+
+ insmod sym53c8xx sym53c8xx=excl:0x1400
+ insmod ncr53c8xx
+
+installs the sym53c8xx driver on all adapters except the one at IO port
+address 0x1400 and then installs the ncr53c8xx driver to the adapter at IO
+port address 0x1400.
+
+
+10.2 Available arguments
+
+10.2.1 Master parity checking
+ mpar:y enabled
+ mpar:n disabled
+
+10.2.2 Scsi parity checking
+ spar:y enabled
+ spar:n disabled
+
+10.2.3 Scsi disconnections
+ disc:y enabled
+ disc:n disabled
+
+10.2.4 Special features
+ Only apply to 810A, 825A, 860, 875 and 895 controllers.
+ Have no effect with other ones.
+ specf:y (or 1) enabled
+ specf:n (or 0) disabled
+ specf:3 enabled except Memory Write And Invalidate
+ The default driver setup is 'specf:3'. As a consequence, option 'specf:y'
+ must be specified in the boot setup command to enable Memory Write And
+ Invalidate.
+
+10.2.5 Ultra SCSI support
+ Only apply to 860, 875, 895, 895a, 896, 1010 and 1010_66 controllers.
+ Have no effect with other ones.
+ ultra:n All ultra speeds enabled
+ ultra:2 Ultra2 enabled
+ ultra:1 Ultra enabled
+ ultra:0 Ultra speeds disabled
+
+10.2.6 Default number of tagged commands
+ tags:0 (or tags:1 ) tagged command queuing disabled
+ tags:#tags (#tags > 1) tagged command queuing enabled
+ #tags will be truncated to the max queued commands configuration parameter.
+ This option also allows to specify a command queue depth for each device
+ that support tagged command queueing.
+ Example:
+ ncr53c8xx=tags:10/t2t3q16-t5q24/t1u2q32
+ will set devices queue depth as follow:
+ - controller #0 target #2 and target #3 -> 16 commands,
+ - controller #0 target #5 -> 24 commands,
+ - controller #1 target #1 logical unit #2 -> 32 commands,
+ - all other logical units (all targets, all controllers) -> 10 commands.
+
+10.2.7 Default synchronous period factor
+ sync:255 disabled (asynchronous transfer mode)
+ sync:#factor
+ #factor = 10 Ultra-2 SCSI 40 Mega-transfers / second
+ #factor = 11 Ultra-2 SCSI 33 Mega-transfers / second
+ #factor < 25 Ultra SCSI 20 Mega-transfers / second
+ #factor < 50 Fast SCSI-2
+
+ In all cases, the driver will use the minimum transfer period supported by
+ controllers according to NCR53C8XX chip type.
+
+10.2.8 Negotiate synchronous with all devices
+ (force sync nego)
+ fsn:y enabled
+ fsn:n disabled
+
+10.2.9 Verbosity level
+ verb:0 minimal
+ verb:1 normal
+ verb:2 too much
+
+10.2.10 Debug mode
+ debug:0 clear debug flags
+ debug:#x set debug flags
+ #x is an integer value combining the following power-of-2 values:
+ DEBUG_ALLOC 0x1
+ DEBUG_PHASE 0x2
+ DEBUG_POLL 0x4
+ DEBUG_QUEUE 0x8
+ DEBUG_RESULT 0x10
+ DEBUG_SCATTER 0x20
+ DEBUG_SCRIPT 0x40
+ DEBUG_TINY 0x80
+ DEBUG_TIMING 0x100
+ DEBUG_NEGO 0x200
+ DEBUG_TAGS 0x400
+ DEBUG_FREEZE 0x800
+ DEBUG_RESTART 0x1000
+
+ You can play safely with DEBUG_NEGO. However, some of these flags may
+ generate bunches of syslog messages.
+
+10.2.11 Burst max
+ burst:0 burst disabled
+ burst:255 get burst length from initial IO register settings.
+ burst:#x burst enabled (1<<#x burst transfers max)
+ #x is an integer value which is log base 2 of the burst transfers max.
+ The NCR53C875 and NCR53C825A support up to 128 burst transfers (#x = 7).
+ Other chips only support up to 16 (#x = 4).
+ This is a maximum value. The driver set the burst length according to chip
+ and revision ids. By default the driver uses the maximum value supported
+ by the chip.
+
+10.2.12 LED support
+ led:1 enable LED support
+ led:0 disable LED support
+ Donnot enable LED support if your scsi board does not use SDMS BIOS.
+ (See 'Configuration parameters')
+
+10.2.13 Max wide
+ wide:1 wide scsi enabled
+ wide:0 wide scsi disabled
+ Some scsi boards use a 875 (ultra wide) and only supply narrow connectors.
+ If you have connected a wide device with a 50 pins to 68 pins cable
+ converter, any accepted wide negotiation will break further data transfers.
+ In such a case, using "wide:0" in the bootup command will be helpful.
+
+10.2.14 Differential mode
+ diff:0 never set up diff mode
+ diff:1 set up diff mode if BIOS set it
+ diff:2 always set up diff mode
+ diff:3 set diff mode if GPIO3 is not set
+
+10.2.15 IRQ mode
+ irqm:0 always open drain
+ irqm:1 same as initial settings (assumed BIOS settings)
+ irqm:2 always totem pole
+ irqm:0x10 driver will not use IRQF_SHARED flag when requesting irq
+ irqm:0x20 driver will not use IRQF_DISABLED flag when requesting irq
+
+ (Bits 0x10 and 0x20 can be combined with hardware irq mode option)
+
+10.2.16 Reverse probe
+ revprob:n probe chip ids from the PCI configuration in this order:
+ 810, 815, 820, 860, 875, 885, 895, 896
+ revprob:y probe chip ids in the reverse order.
+
+10.2.17 Fix up PCI configuration space
+ pcifix:<option bits>
+
+ Available option bits:
+ 0x0: No attempt to fix PCI configuration space registers values.
+ 0x1: Set PCI cache-line size register if not set.
+ 0x2: Set write and invalidate bit in PCI command register.
+ 0x4: Increase if necessary PCI latency timer according to burst max.
+
+ Use 'pcifix:7' in order to allow the driver to fix up all PCI features.
+
+10.2.18 Serial NVRAM
+ nvram:n do not look for serial NVRAM
+ nvram:y test controllers for onboard serial NVRAM
+ (alternate binary form)
+ mvram=<bits options>
+ 0x01 look for NVRAM (equivalent to nvram=y)
+ 0x02 ignore NVRAM "Synchronous negotiation" parameters for all devices
+ 0x04 ignore NVRAM "Wide negotiation" parameter for all devices
+ 0x08 ignore NVRAM "Scan at boot time" parameter for all devices
+ 0x80 also attach controllers set to OFF in the NVRAM (sym53c8xx only)
+
+10.2.19 Check SCSI BUS
+ buschk:<option bits>
+
+ Available option bits:
+ 0x0: No check.
+ 0x1: Check and do not attach the controller on error.
+ 0x2: Check and just warn on error.
+ 0x4: Disable SCSI bus integrity checking.
+
+10.2.20 Exclude a host from being attached
+ excl=<io_address>
+
+ Prevent host at a given io address from being attached.
+ For example 'ncr53c8xx=excl:0xb400,excl:0xc000' indicate to the
+ ncr53c8xx driver not to attach hosts at address 0xb400 and 0xc000.
+
+10.2.21 Suggest a default SCSI id for hosts
+ hostid:255 no id suggested.
+ hostid:#x (0 < x < 7) x suggested for hosts SCSI id.
+
+ If a host SCSI id is available from the NVRAM, the driver will ignore
+ any value suggested as boot option. Otherwise, if a suggested value
+ different from 255 has been supplied, it will use it. Otherwise, it will
+ try to deduce the value previously set in the hardware and use value
+ 7 if the hardware value is zero.
+
+10.2.22 Enable use of IMMEDIATE ARBITRATION
+ (only supported by the sym53c8xx driver. See 10.7 for more details)
+ iarb:0 do not use this feature.
+ iarb:#x use this feature according to bit fields as follow:
+
+ bit 0 (1) : enable IARB each time the initiator has been reselected
+ when it arbitrated for the SCSI BUS.
+ (#x >> 4) : maximum number of successive settings of IARB if the initiator
+ win arbitration and it has other commands to send to a device.
+
+Boot fail safe
+ safe:y load the following assumed fail safe initial setup
+
+ master parity disabled mpar:n

+ SCSI BUS check do not attach on error buschk:1
+ immediate arbitration disabled iarb:0
+
+10.3 Advised boot setup commands
+
+If the driver has been configured with default options, the equivalent
+boot setup is:
+
+ ncr53c8xx=mpar:y,spar:y,disc:y,specf:3,fsn:n,ultra:2,fsn:n,revprob:n,verb:1\
+ tags:0,sync:50,debug:0,burst:7,led:0,wide:1,settle:2,diff:0,irqm:0
+
+For an installation diskette or a safe but not fast system,
+boot setup can be:
+
+ ncr53c8xx=safe:y,mpar:y,disc:y
+ ncr53c8xx=safe:y,disc:y
+ ncr53c8xx=safe:y,mpar:y
+ ncr53c8xx=safe:y
+
+My personal system works flawlessly with the following equivalent setup:
+
+ ncr53c8xx=mpar:y,spar:y,disc:y,specf:1,fsn:n,ultra:2,fsn:n,revprob:n,verb:1\
+ tags:32,sync:12,debug:0,burst:7,led:1,wide:1,settle:2,diff:0,irqm:0
+
+The driver prints its actual setup when verbosity level is 2. You can try
+"ncr53c8xx=verb:2" to get the "static" setup of the driver, or add "verb:2"
+to your boot setup command in order to check the actual setup the driver is
+using.
+
+10.4 PCI configuration fix-up boot option
+
+pcifix:<option bits>
+
+Available option bits:
+ 0x1: Set PCI cache-line size register if not set.
+ 0x2: Set write and invalidate bit in PCI command register.
+
+Use 'pcifix:3' in order to allow the driver to fix both PCI features.
+
+These options only apply to new SYMBIOS chips 810A, 825A, 860, 875
+and 895 and are only supported for Pentium and 486 class processors.
+Recent SYMBIOS 53C8XX scsi processors are able to use PCI read multiple
+and PCI write and invalidate commands. These features require the
+cache line size register to be properly set in the PCI configuration
+space of the chips. On the other hand, chips will use PCI write and
+invalidate commands only if the corresponding bit is set to 1 in the
+PCI command register.
+
+Not all PCI bioses set the PCI cache line register and the PCI write and
+invalidate bit in the PCI configuration space of 53C8XX chips.
+Optimized PCI accesses may be broken for some PCI/memory controllers or
+make problems with some PCI boards.
+
+This fix-up worked flawlessly on my previous system.
+(MB Triton HX / 53C875 / 53C810A)
+I use these options at my own risks as you will do if you decide to
+use them too.
+
+
+10.5 Serial NVRAM support boot option
+
+nvram:n do not look for serial NVRAM
+nvram:y test controllers for onboard serial NVRAM
+
+This option can also been entered as an hexadecimal value that allows
+to control what information the driver will get from the NVRAM and what
+information it will ignore.
+For details see '17. Serial NVRAM support'.
+
+When this option is enabled, the driver tries to detect all boards using
+a Serial NVRAM. This memory is used to hold user set up parameters.
+
+The parameters the driver is able to get from the NVRAM depend on the
+data format used, as follow:
+
+ Tekram format Symbios format
+General and host parameters
+ Boot order N Y
+ Host SCSI ID Y Y
+ SCSI parity checking Y Y
+ Verbose boot messages N Y
+SCSI devices parameters
+ Synchronous transfer speed Y Y
+ Wide 16 / Narrow Y Y
+ Tagged Command Queuing enabled Y Y
+ Disconnections enabled Y Y
+ Scan at boot time N Y
+
+In order to speed up the system boot, for each device configured without
+the "scan at boot time" option, the driver forces an error on the
+first TEST UNIT READY command received for this device.
+
+Some SDMS BIOS revisions seem to be unable to boot cleanly with very fast
+hard disks. In such a situation you cannot configure the NVRAM with
+optimized parameters value.
+
+The 'nvram' boot option can be entered in hexadecimal form in order
+to ignore some options configured in the NVRAM, as follow:
+
+mvram=<bits options>
+ 0x01 look for NVRAM (equivalent to nvram=y)
+ 0x02 ignore NVRAM "Synchronous negotiation" parameters for all devices
+ 0x04 ignore NVRAM "Wide negotiation" parameter for all devices
+ 0x08 ignore NVRAM "Scan at boot time" parameter for all devices
+ 0x80 also attach controllers set to OFF in the NVRAM (sym53c8xx only)
+
+Option 0x80 is only supported by the sym53c8xx driver and is disabled by
+default. Result is that, by default (option not set), the sym53c8xx driver
+will not attach controllers set to OFF in the NVRAM.
+
+The ncr53c8xx always tries to attach all the controllers. Option 0x80 has
+not been added to the ncr53c8xx driver, since it has been reported to
+confuse users who use this driver since a long time. If you desire a
+controller not to be attached by the ncr53c8xx driver at Linux boot, you
+must use the 'excl' driver boot option.
+
+10.6 SCSI BUS checking boot option.
+
+When this option is set to a non-zero value, the driver checks SCSI lines
+logic state, 100 micro-seconds after having asserted the SCSI RESET line.
+The driver just reads SCSI lines and checks all lines read FALSE except RESET.
+Since SCSI devices shall release the BUS at most 800 nano-seconds after SCSI
+RESET has been asserted, any signal to TRUE may indicate a SCSI BUS problem.
+Unfortunately, the following common SCSI BUS problems are not detected:
+- Only 1 terminator installed.
+- Misplaced terminators.
+- Bad quality terminators.
+On the other hand, either bad cabling, broken devices, not conformant
+devices, ... may cause a SCSI signal to be wrong when te driver reads it.
+
+10.7 IMMEDIATE ARBITRATION boot option
+
+This option is only supported by the SYM53C8XX driver (not by the NCR53C8XX).
+
+SYMBIOS 53C8XX chips are able to arbitrate for the SCSI BUS as soon as they
+have detected an expected disconnection (BUS FREE PHASE). For this process
+to be started, bit 1 of SCNTL1 IO register must be set when the chip is
+connected to the SCSI BUS.
+
+When this feature has been enabled for the current connection, the chip has
+every chance to win arbitration if only devices with lower priority are
+competing for the SCSI BUS. By the way, when the chip is using SCSI id 7,
+then it will for sure win the next SCSI BUS arbitration.
+
+Since, there is no way to know what devices are trying to arbitrate for the
+BUS, using this feature can be extremely unfair. So, you are not advised
+to enable it, or at most enable this feature for the case the chip lost
+the previous arbitration (boot option 'iarb:1').
+
+This feature has the following advantages:
+
+a) Allow the initiator with ID 7 to win arbitration when it wants so.
+b) Overlap at least 4 micro-seconds of arbitration time with the execution
+ of SCRIPTS that deal with the end of the current connection and that
+ starts the next job.
+
+Hmmm... But (a) may just prevent other devices from reselecting the initiator,
+and delay data transfers or status/completions, and (b) may just waste
+SCSI BUS bandwidth if the SCRIPTS execution lasts more than 4 micro-seconds.
+
+The use of IARB needs the SCSI_NCR_IARB_SUPPORT option to have been defined
+at compile time and the 'iarb' boot option to have been set to a non zero
+value at boot time. It is not that useful for real work, but can be used
+to stress SCSI devices or for some applications that can gain advantage of
+it. By the way, if you experience badnesses like 'unexpected disconnections',
+'bad reselections', etc... when using IARB on heavy IO load, you should not
+be surprised, because force-feeding anything and blocking its arse at the
+same time cannot work for a long time. :-))
+
+
+11. Some constants and flags of the ncr53c8xx.h header file
+
+Some of these are defined from the configuration parameters. To
+change other "defines", you must edit the header file. Do that only
+if you know what you are doing.
+
+SCSI_NCR_SETUP_SPECIAL_FEATURES (default: defined)
+ If defined, the driver will enable some special features according
+ to chip and revision id.
+ For 810A, 860, 825A, 875 and 895 scsi chips, this option enables
+ support of features that reduce load of PCI bus and memory accesses
+ during scsi transfer processing: burst op-code fetch, read multiple,
+ read line, prefetch, cache line, write and invalidate,
+ burst 128 (875 only), large dma fifo (875 only), offset 16 (875 only).
+ Can be changed by the following boot setup command:
+ ncr53c8xx=specf:n
+
+SCSI_NCR_IOMAPPED (default: not defined)
+ If defined, normal I/O is forced.
+
+SCSI_NCR_SHARE_IRQ (default: defined)
+ If defined, request shared IRQ.
+
+SCSI_NCR_MAX_TAGS (default: 8)
+ Maximum number of simultaneous tagged commands to a device.
+ Can be changed by "settags <target> <maxtags>"
+
+SCSI_NCR_SETUP_DEFAULT_SYNC (default: 50)
+ Transfer period factor the driver will use at boot time for synchronous
+ negotiation. 0 means asynchronous.
+ Can be changed by "setsync <target> <period factor>"
+
+SCSI_NCR_SETUP_DEFAULT_TAGS (default: 8)
+ Default number of simultaneous tagged commands to a device.
+ < 1 means tagged command queuing disabled at start-up.
+

+12. Installation
+
+This driver is part of the linux kernel distribution.
+Driver files are located in the sub-directory "drivers/scsi" of the
+kernel source tree.
+
+Driver files:
+
+ README.ncr53c8xx : this file
+ ChangeLog.ncr53c8xx : change log
+ ncr53c8xx.h : definitions
+ ncr53c8xx.c : the driver code
+
+New driver versions are made available separately in order to allow testing
+changes and new features prior to including them into the linux kernel
+distribution. The following URL provides information on latest available
+patches:

+
+
+13. Architecture dependent features.
+
+<Not yet written>
+
+
+14. Known problems
+
+14.1 Tagged commands with Iomega Jaz device
+
+I have not tried this device, however it has been reported to me the
+following: This device is capable of Tagged command queuing. However
+while spinning up, it rejects Tagged commands. This behaviour is
+conforms to 6.8.2 of SCSI-2 specifications. The current behaviour of
+the driver in that situation is not satisfying. So do not enable
+Tagged command queuing for devices that are able to spin down. The
+other problem that may appear is timeouts. The only way to avoid
+timeouts seems to edit linux/drivers/scsi/sd.c and to increase the
+current timeout values.
+
+14.2 Device names change when another controller is added.
+
+When you add a new NCR53C8XX chip based controller to a system that already
+has one or more controllers of this family, it may happen that the order
+the driver registers them to the kernel causes problems due to device
+name changes.
+When at least one controller uses NvRAM, SDMS BIOS version 4 allows you to
+define the order the BIOS will scan the scsi boards. The driver attaches
+controllers according to BIOS information if NvRAM detect option is set.
+
+If your controllers do not have NvRAM, you can:
+
+- Ask the driver to probe chip ids in reverse order from the boot command
+ line: ncr53c8xx=revprob:y
+- Make appropriate changes in the fstab.
+- Use the 'scsidev' tool from Eric Youngdale.
+
+14.3 Using only 8 bit devices with a WIDE SCSI controller.
+
+When only 8 bit NARROW devices are connected to a 16 bit WIDE SCSI controller,
+you must ensure that lines of the wide part of the SCSI BUS are pulled-up.
+This can be achieved by ENABLING the WIDE TERMINATOR portion of the SCSI
+controller card.
+The TYAN 1365 documentation revision 1.2 is not correct about such settings.
+(page 10, figure 3.3).
+
+14.4 Possible data corruption during a Memory Write and Invalidate
+
+This problem is described in SYMBIOS DEL 397, Part Number 69-039241, ITEM 4.
+
+In some complex situations, 53C875 chips revision <= 3 may start a PCI
+Write and Invalidate Command at a not cache-line-aligned 4 DWORDS boundary.
+This is only possible when Cache Line Size is 8 DWORDS or greater.
+Pentium systems use a 8 DWORDS cache line size and so are concerned by
+this chip bug, unlike i486 systems that use a 4 DWORDS cache line size.
+
+When this situation occurs, the chip may complete the Write and Invalidate
+command after having only filled part of the last cache line involved in
+the transfer, leaving to data corruption the remainder of this cache line.
+
+Not using Write And Invalidate obviously gets rid of this chip bug, and so
+it is now the default setting of the driver.
+However, for people like me who want to enable this feature, I have added
+part of a work-around suggested by SYMBIOS. This work-around resets the
+addressing logic when the DATA IN phase is entered and so prevents the bug
+from being triggered for the first SCSI MOVE of the phase. This work-around
+should be enough according to the following:
+
+The only driver internal data structure that is greater than 8 DWORDS and
+that is moved by the SCRIPTS processor is the 'CCB header' that contains
+the context of the SCSI transfer. This data structure is aligned on 8 DWORDS
+boundary (Pentium Cache Line Size), and so is immune to this chip bug, at
+least on Pentium systems.
+But the conditions of this bug can be met when a SCSI read command is
+performed using a buffer that is 4 DWORDS but not cache-line aligned.
+This cannot happen under Linux when scatter/gather lists are used since
+they only refer to system buffers that are well aligned. So, a work around
+may only be needed under Linux when a scatter/gather list is not used and
+when the SCSI DATA IN phase is reentered after a phase mismatch.
+
+14.5 IRQ sharing problems
+
+When an IRQ is shared by devices that are handled by different drivers, it
+may happen that one driver complains about the request of the IRQ having
+failed. Inder Linux-2.0, this may be due to one driver having requested the
+IRQ using the IRQF_DISABLED flag but some other having requested the same IRQ
+without this flag. Under both Linux-2.0 and linux-2.2, this may be caused by
+one driver not having requested the IRQ with the IRQF_SHARED flag.
+
+By default, the ncr53c8xx and sym53c8xx drivers request IRQs with both the
+IRQF_DISABLED and the IRQF_SHARED flag under Linux-2.0 and with only the IRQF_SHARED
+flag under Linux-2.2.
+
+Under Linux-2.0, you can disable use of IRQF_DISABLED flag from the boot
+command line by using the following option:
+
+ ncr53c8xx=irqm:0x20 (for the generic ncr53c8xx driver)
+ sym53c8xx=irqm:0x20 (for the sym53c8xx driver)
+
+If this does not fix the problem, then you may want to check how all other
+drivers are requesting the IRQ and report the problem. Note that if at least
+a single driver does not request the IRQ with the IRQF_SHARED flag (share IRQ),
+then the request of the IRQ obviously will not succeed for all the drivers.
+
+15. SCSI problem troubleshooting
+
+15.1 Problem tracking
+
+Most SCSI problems are due to a non conformant SCSI bus or to buggy
+devices. If unfortunately you have SCSI problems, you can check the
+following things:
+
+- SCSI bus cables
+- terminations at both end of the SCSI chain
+- linux syslog messages (some of them may help you)
+
+If you do not find the source of problems, you can configure the
+driver with no features enabled.
+
+- only asynchronous data transfers
+- tagged commands disabled
+- disconnections not allowed
+
+Now, if your SCSI bus is ok, your system have every chance to work
+with this safe configuration but performances will not be optimal.
+
+If it still fails, then you can send your problem description to
+appropriate mailing lists or news-groups. Send me a copy in order to
+be sure I will receive it. Obviously, a bug in the driver code is
+possible.
+
+ My email address: Gerard Roudier <groudier@free.fr>
+
+Allowing disconnections is important if you use several devices on
+your SCSI bus but often causes problems with buggy devices.
+Synchronous data transfers increases throughput of fast devices like
+hard disks. Good SCSI hard disks with a large cache gain advantage of
+tagged commands queuing.
+
+Try to enable one feature at a time with control commands. For example:
+
+- echo "setsync all 25" >/proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+ Will enable fast synchronous data transfer negotiation for all targets.
+
+- echo "setflag 3" >/proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+ Will reset flags (no_disc) for target 3, and so will allow it to disconnect
+ the SCSI Bus.
+
+- echo "settags 3 8" >/proc/scsi/ncr53c8xx/0
+ Will enable tagged command queuing for target 3 if that device supports it.
+
+Once you have found the device and the feature that cause problems, just
+disable that feature for that device.
+
+15.2 Understanding hardware error reports
+
+When the driver detects an unexpected error condition, it may display a
+message of the following pattern.
+
+sym53c876-0:1: ERROR (0:48) (1-21-65) (f/95) @ (script 7c0:19000000).
+sym53c876-0: script cmd = 19000000
+sym53c876-0: regdump: da 10 80 95 47 0f 01 07 75 01 81 21 80 01 09 00.
+
+Some fields in such a message may help you understand the cause of the
+problem, as follows:
+
+sym53c876-0:1: ERROR (0:48) (1-21-65) (f/95) @ (script 7c0:19000000).
+............A.........B.C....D.E..F....G.H.......I.....J...K.......
+
+Field A : target number.
+ SCSI ID of the device the controller was talking with at the moment the
+ error occurs.
+
+Field B : DSTAT io register (DMA STATUS)
+ Bit 0x40 : MDPE Master Data Parity Error
+ Data parity error detected on the PCI BUS.
+ Bit 0x20 : BF Bus Fault
+ PCI bus fault condition detected
+ Bit 0x01 : IID Illegal Instruction Detected
+ Set by the chip when it detects an Illegal Instruction format
+ on some condition that makes an instruction illegal.
+ Bit 0x80 : DFE Dma Fifo Empty
+ Pure status bit that does not indicate an error.
+ If the reported DSTAT value contains a combination of MDPE (0x40),
+ BF (0x20), then the cause may be likely due to a PCI BUS problem.
+
+Field C : SIST io register (SCSI Interrupt Status)
+ Bit 0x08 : SGE SCSI GROSS ERROR
+ Indicates that the chip detected a severe error condition
+ on the SCSI BUS that prevents the SCSI protocol from functioning
+ properly.
+ Bit 0x04 : UDC Unexpected Disconnection
+ Indicates that the device released the SCSI BUS when the chip
+ was not expecting this to happen. A device may behave so to
+ indicate the SCSI initiator that an error condition not reportable using the SCSI protocol has occurred.
+ Bit 0x02 : RST SCSI BUS Reset
+ Generally SCSI targets do not reset the SCSI BUS, although any
+ device on the BUS can reset it at any time.
+ Bit 0x01 : PAR Parity
+ SCSI parity error detected.
+ On a faulty SCSI BUS, any error condition among SGE (0x08), UDC (0x04) and
+ PAR (0x01) may be detected by the chip. If your SCSI system sometimes
+ encounters such error conditions, especially SCSI GROSS ERROR, then a SCSI
+ BUS problem is likely the cause of these errors.
+
+For fields D,E,F,G and H, you may look into the sym53c8xx_defs.h file
+that contains some minimal comments on IO register bits.
+Field D : SOCL Scsi Output Control Latch
+ This register reflects the state of the SCSI control lines the
+ chip want to drive or compare against.
+Field E : SBCL Scsi Bus Control Lines
+ Actual value of control lines on the SCSI BUS.
+Field F : SBDL Scsi Bus Data Lines
+ Actual value of data lines on the SCSI BUS.
+Field G : SXFER SCSI Transfer
+ Contains the setting of the Synchronous Period for output and
+ the current Synchronous offset (offset 0 means asynchronous).
+Field H : SCNTL3 Scsi Control Register 3
+ Contains the setting of timing values for both asynchronous and
+ synchronous data transfers.
+
+Understanding Fields I, J, K and dumps requires to have good knowledge of
+SCSI standards, chip cores functionnals and internal driver data structures.
+You are not required to decode and understand them, unless you want to help
+maintain the driver code.
+
+16. Synchronous transfer negotiation tables
+
+Tables below have been created by calling the routine the driver uses
+for synchronisation negotiation timing calculation and chip setting.
+The first table corresponds to Ultra chips 53875 and 53C860 with 80 MHz
+clock and 5 clock divisors.
+The second one has been calculated by setting the scsi clock to 40 Mhz
+and using 4 clock divisors and so applies to all NCR53C8XX chips in fast
+SCSI-2 mode.
+
+Periods are in nano-seconds and speeds are in Mega-transfers per second.
+1 Mega-transfers/second means 1 MB/s with 8 bits SCSI and 2 MB/s with
+Wide16 SCSI.

+17. Serial NVRAM (added by Richard Waltham: dormouse@farsrobt.demon.co.uk)
+
+17.1 Features
+
+Enabling serial NVRAM support enables detection of the serial NVRAM included
+on Symbios and some Symbios compatible host adaptors, and Tekram boards. The
+serial NVRAM is used by Symbios and Tekram to hold set up parameters for the
+host adaptor and its attached drives.
+
+The Symbios NVRAM also holds data on the boot order of host adaptors in a
+system with more than one host adaptor. This enables the order of scanning
+the cards for drives to be changed from the default used during host adaptor
+detection.
+
+This can be done to a limited extent at the moment using "reverse probe" but
+this only changes the order of detection of different types of cards. The
+NVRAM boot order settings can do this as well as change the order the same
+types of cards are scanned in, something "reverse probe" cannot do.
+
+Tekram boards using Symbios chips, DC390W/F/U, which have NVRAM are detected
+and this is used to distinguish between Symbios compatible and Tekram host
+adaptors. This is used to disable the Symbios compatible "diff" setting
+incorrectly set on Tekram boards if the CONFIG_SCSI_53C8XX_SYMBIOS_COMPAT
+configuration parameter is set enabling both Symbios and Tekram boards to be
+used together with the Symbios cards using all their features, including
+"diff" support. ("led pin" support for Symbios compatible cards can remain
+enabled when using Tekram cards. It does nothing useful for Tekram host
+adaptors but does not cause problems either.)

+18. Support for Big Endian
+
+The PCI local bus has been primarily designed for x86 architecture.
+As a consequence, PCI devices generally expect DWORDS using little endian
+byte ordering.
+
+18.1 Big Endian CPU
+
+In order to support NCR chips on a Big Endian architecture the driver has to
+perform byte reordering each time it is needed. This feature has been
+added to the driver by Cort <cort@cs.nmt.edu> and is available in driver
+version 2.5 and later ones. For the moment Big Endian support has only
+been tested on Linux/PPC (PowerPC).
+
+18.2 NCR chip in Big Endian mode of operations
+
+It can be read in SYMBIOS documentation that some chips support a special
+Big Endian mode, on paper: 53C815, 53C825A, 53C875, 53C875N, 53C895.
+This mode of operations is not software-selectable, but needs pin named
+BigLit to be pulled-up. Using this mode, most of byte reorderings should
+be avoided when the driver is running on a Big Endian CPU.
+Driver version 2.5 is also, in theory, ready for this feature.

+The OSD Standard
+================
+OSD (Object-Based Storage Device) is a T10 SCSI command set that is designed
+to provide efficient operation of input/output logical units that manage the
+allocation, placement, and accessing of variable-size data-storage containers,
+called objects. Objects are intended to contain operating system and application
+constructs. Each object has associated attributes attached to it, which are
+integral part of the object and provide metadata about the object. The standard
+defines some common obligatory attributes, but user attributes can be added as
+needed.
+
+See: http://www.t10.org/ftp/t10/drafts/osd2/ for the latest draft for OSD 2
+or search the web for "OSD SCSI"
+
+OSD in the Linux Kernel
+=======================
+osd-initiator:
+ The main component of OSD in Kernel is the osd-initiator library. Its main
+user is intended to be the pNFS-over-objects layout driver, which uses objects
+as its back-end data storage. Other clients are the other osd parts listed below.
+
+osd-uld:
+ This is a SCSI ULD that registers for OSD type devices and provides a testing
+platform, both for the in-kernel initiator as well as connected targets. It
+currently has no useful user-mode API, though it could have if need be.
+
+exofs:
+ Is an OSD based Linux file system. It uses the osd-initiator and osd-uld,
+to export a usable file system for users.
+See Documentation/filesystems/exofs.txt for more details
+
+osd target:
+ There are no current plans for an OSD target implementation in kernel. For all
+needs, a user-mode target that is based on the scsi tgt target framework is
+available from Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) at:
+http://www.open-osd.org/bin/view/Main/OscOsdProject
+There are several other target implementations. See http://open-osd.org for more
+links.

+The OSD-Initiator Library
+=========================
+osd_initiator is a low level implementation of an osd initiator encoder.
+But even though, it should be intuitive and easy to use. Perhaps over time an
+higher lever will form that automates some of the more common recipes.
+
+init/fini:
+- osd_dev_init() associates a scsi_device with an osd_dev structure
+ and initializes some global pools. This should be done once per scsi_device
+ (OSD LUN). The osd_dev structure is needed for calling osd_start_request().
+
+- osd_dev_fini() cleans up before a osd_dev/scsi_device destruction.
+
+OSD commands encoding, execution, and decoding of results:
+
+struct osd_request's is used to iteratively encode an OSD command and carry
+its state throughout execution. Each request goes through these stages:
+
+a. osd_start_request() allocates the request.
+
+b. Any of the osd_req_* methods is used to encode a request of the specified
+ type.
+
+c. osd_req_add_{get,set}_attr_* may be called to add get/set attributes to the
+ CDB. "List" or "Page" mode can be used exclusively. The attribute-list API
+ can be called multiple times on the same request. However, only one
+ attribute-page can be read, as mandated by the OSD standard.
+
+d. osd_finalize_request() computes offsets into the data-in and data-out buffers
+ and signs the request using the provided capability key and integrity-
+ check parameters.
+
+e. osd_execute_request() may be called to execute the request via the block
+ layer and wait for its completion. The request can be executed
+ asynchronously by calling the block layer API directly.
+
+f. After execution, osd_req_decode_sense() can be called to decode the request's
+ sense information.
+
+g. osd_req_decode_get_attr() may be called to retrieve osd_add_get_attr_list()
+ values.
+
+h. osd_end_request() must be called to deallocate the request and any resource
+ associated with it. Note that osd_end_request cleans up the request at any
+ stage and it must always be called after a successful osd_start_request().
+
+osd_request's structure:
+
+The OSD standard defines a complex structure of IO segments pointed to by
+members in the CDB. Up to 3 segments can be deployed in the IN-Buffer and up to
+4 in the OUT-Buffer. The ASCII illustration below depicts a secure-read with
+associated get+set of attributes-lists. Other combinations very on the same
+basic theme. From no-segments-used up to all-segments-used.

+
+A block device request can carry bidirectional payload by means of associating
+a bidi_read request with a main write-request. Each in/out request is described
+by a chain of BIOs associated with each request.
+The CDB is of a SCSI VARLEN CDB format, as described by OSD standard.
+The OSD standard also mandates alignment restrictions at start of each segment.
+
+In the code, in struct osd_request, there are two _osd_io_info structures to
+describe the IN/OUT buffers above, two BIOs for the data payload and up to five
+_osd_req_data_segment structures to hold the different segments allocation and
+information.
+
+Important: We have chosen to disregard the assumption that a BIO-chain (and
+the resulting sg-list) describes a linear memory buffer. Meaning only first and
+last scatter chain can be incomplete and all the middle chains are of PAGE_SIZE.
+For us, a scatter-gather-list, as its name implies and as used by the Networking
+layer, is to describe a vector of buffers that will be transferred to/from the
+wire. It works very well with current iSCSI transport. iSCSI is currently the
+only deployed OSD transport. In the future we anticipate SAS and FC attached OSD
+devices as well.

+README file for the osst driver
+===============================
+(w) Kurt Garloff <garloff@suse.de> 12/2000
+
+This file describes the osst driver as of version 0.8.x/0.9.x, the released
+version of the osst driver.
+It is intended to help advanced users to understand the role of osst and to
+get them started using (and maybe debugging) it.
+It won't address issues like "How do I compile a kernel?" or "How do I load
+a module?", as these are too basic.
+Once the OnStream got merged into the official kernel, the distro makers
+will provide the OnStream support for those who are not familiar with
+hacking their kernels.
+
+
+Purpose
+-------
+The osst driver was developed, because the standard SCSI tape driver in
+Linux, st, does not support the OnStream SC-x0 SCSI tape. The st is not to
+blame for that, as the OnStream tape drives do not support the standard SCSI
+command set for Serial Access Storage Devices (SASDs), which basically
+corresponds to the QIC-157 spec.
+Nevertheless, the OnStream tapes are nice pieces of hardware and therefore
+the osst driver has been written to make these tape devs supported by Linux.
+The driver is free software. It's released under the GNU GPL and planned to
+be integrated into the mainstream kernel.
+
+
+Implementation
+--------------
+The osst is a new high-level SCSI driver, just like st, sr, sd and sg. It
+can be compiled into the kernel or loaded as a module.
+As it represents a new device, it got assigned a new device node: /dev/osstX
+are character devices with major no 206 and minor numbers like the /dev/stX
+devices. If those are not present, you may create them by calling
+Makedevs.sh as root (see below).
+The driver started being a copy of st and as such, the osst devices'
+behavior looks very much the same as st to the userspace applications.
+
+
+History
+-------
+In the first place, osst shared its identity very much with st. That meant
+that it used the same kernel structures and the same device node as st.
+So you could only have either of them being present in the kernel. This has
+been fixed by registering an own device, now.
+st and osst can coexist, each only accessing the devices it can support by
+themselves.
+
+
+Installation
+------------
+osst got integrated into the linux kernel. Select it during kernel
+configuration as module or compile statically into the kernel.
+Compile your kernel and install the modules.
+
+Now, your osst driver is inside the kernel or available as a module,
+depending on your choice during kernel config. You may still need to create
+the device nodes by calling the Makedevs.sh script (see below) manually.
+
+To load your module, you may use the command
+modprobe osst
+as root. dmesg should show you, whether your OnStream tapes have been
+recognized.
+
+If you want to have the module autoloaded on access to /dev/osst, you may
+add something like
+alias char-major-206 osst
+to a file under /etc/modprobe.d/ directory.
+
+You may find it convenient to create a symbolic link
+ln -s nosst0 /dev/tape
+to make programs assuming a default name of /dev/tape more convenient to
+use.
+
+The device nodes for osst have to be created. Use the Makedevs.sh script
+attached to this file.
+
+
+Using it
+--------
+You may use the OnStream tape driver with your standard backup software,
+which may be tar, cpio, amanda, arkeia, BRU, Lone Tar, ...
+by specifying /dev/(n)osst0 as the tape device to use or using the above
+symlink trick. The IOCTLs to control tape operation are also mostly
+supported and you may try the mt (or mt_st) program to jump between
+filemarks, eject the tape, ...
+
+There's one limitation: You need to use a block size of 32kB.
+
+(This limitation is worked on and will be fixed in version 0.8.8 of
+ this driver.)
+
+If you just want to get started with standard software, here is an example
+for creating and restoring a full backup:
+# Backup
+tar cvf - / --exclude /proc | buffer -s 32k -m 24M -B -t -o /dev/nosst0
+# Restore
+buffer -s 32k -m 8M -B -t -i /dev/osst0 | tar xvf - -C /
+
+The buffer command has been used to buffer the data before it goes to the
+tape (or the file system) in order to smooth out the data stream and prevent
+the tape from needing to stop and rewind. The OnStream does have an internal
+buffer and a variable speed which help this, but especially on writing, the
+buffering still proves useful in most cases. It also pads the data to
+guarantees the block size of 32k. (Otherwise you may pass the -b64 option to
+tar.)
+Expect something like 1.8MB/s for the SC-x0 drives and 0.9MB/s for the DI-30.
+The USB drive will give you about 0.7MB/s.
+On a fast machine, you may profit from software data compression (z flag for
+tar).
+
+
+USB and IDE
+-----------
+Via the SCSI emulation layers usb-storage and ide-scsi, you can also use the
+osst driver to drive the USB-30 and the DI-30 drives. (Unfortunately, there
+is no such layer for the parallel port, otherwise the DP-30 would work as
+well.) For the USB support, you need the latest 2.4.0-test kernels and the
+latest usb-storage driver from
+http://www.linux-usb.org/
+http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=3581
+
+Note that the ide-tape driver as of 1.16f uses a slightly outdated on-tape
+format and therefore is not completely interoperable with osst tapes.
+
+The ADR-x0 line is fully SCSI-2 compliant and is supported by st, not osst.
+The on-tape format is supposed to be compatible with the one used by osst.
+
+
+Feedback and updates
+--------------------
+The driver development is coordinated through a mailing list
+<osst@linux1.onstream.nl>
+a CVS repository and some web pages.
+The tester's pages which contain recent news and updated drivers to download
+can be found on
+http://sourceforge.net/projects/osst/
+
+If you find any problems, please have a look at the tester's page in order
+to see whether the problem is already known and solved. Otherwise, please
+report it to the mailing list. Your feedback is welcome. (This holds also
+for reports of successful usage, of course.)
+In case of trouble, please do always provide the following info:
+* driver and kernel version used (see syslog)
+* driver messages (syslog)
+* SCSI config and OnStream Firmware (/proc/scsi/scsi)
+* description of error. Is it reproducible?
+* software and commands used
+
+You may subscribe to the mailing list, BTW, it's a majordomo list.
+
+
+Status
+------
+0.8.0 was the first widespread BETA release. Since then a lot of reports
+have been sent, but mostly reported success or only minor trouble.
+All the issues have been addressed.
+Check the web pages for more info about the current developments.
+0.9.x is the tree for the 2.3/2.4 kernel.
+
+
+Acknowledgments
+----------------
+The driver has been started by making a copy of Kai Makisara's st driver.
+Most of the development has been done by Willem Riede. The presence of the
+userspace program osg (onstreamsg) from Terry Hardie has been rather
+helpful. The same holds for Gadi Oxman's ide-tape support for the DI-30.
+I did add some patches to those drivers as well and coordinated things a
+little bit.
+Note that most of them did mostly spend their spare time for the creation of
+this driver.
+The people from OnStream, especially Jack Bombeeck did support this project
+and always tried to answer HW or FW related questions. Furthermore, he
+pushed the FW developers to do the right things.
+SuSE did support this project by allowing me to work on it during my working
+time for them and by integrating the driver into their distro.
+
+More people did help by sending useful comments. Sorry to those who have
+been forgotten. Thanks to all the GNU/FSF and Linux developers who made this
+platform such an interesting, nice and stable platform.
+Thanks go to those who tested the drivers and did send useful reports. Your
+help is needed!

+
+This driver supports the Qlogic FASXXX family of chips. This driver
+only works with the ISA, VLB, and PCMCIA versions of the Qlogic
+FastSCSI! cards as well as any other card based on the FASXX chip
+(including the Control Concepts SCSI/IDE/SIO/PIO/FDC cards).
+
+This driver does NOT support the PCI version. Support for these PCI
+Qlogic boards:
+
+ * IQ-PCI
+ * IQ-PCI-10
+ * IQ-PCI-D
+
+is provided by the qla1280 driver.
+
+Nor does it support the PCI-Basic, which is supported by the
+'am53c974' driver.
+
+PCMCIA SUPPORT
+
+This currently only works if the card is enabled first from DOS. This
+means you will have to load your socket and card services, and
+QL41DOS.SYS and QL40ENBL.SYS. These are a minimum, but loading the
+rest of the modules won't interfere with the operation. The next
+thing to do is load the kernel without resetting the hardware, which
+can be a simple ctrl-alt-delete with a boot floppy, or by using
+loadlin with the kernel image accessible from DOS. If you are using
+the Linux PCMCIA driver, you will have to adjust it or otherwise stop
+it from configuring the card.
+
+I am working with the PCMCIA group to make it more flexible, but that
+may take a while.
+
+ALL CARDS
+
+The top of the qlogic.c file has a number of defines that controls
+configuration. As shipped, it provides a balance between speed and
+function. If there are any problems, try setting SLOW_CABLE to 1, and
+then try changing USE_IRQ and TURBO_PDMA to zero. If you are familiar
+with SCSI, there are other settings which can tune the bus.
+
+It may be a good idea to enable RESET_AT_START, especially if the
+devices may not have been just powered up, or if you are restarting
+after a crash, since they may be busy trying to complete the last
+command or something. It comes up faster if this is set to zero, and
+if you have reliable hardware and connections it may be more useful to
+not reset things.
+
+SOME TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
+
+Make sure it works properly under DOS. You should also do an initial FDISK
+on a new drive if you want partitions.
+
+Don't enable all the speedups first. If anything is wrong, they will make
+any problem worse.
+
+IMPORTANT
+
+The best way to test if your cables, termination, etc. are good is to
+copy a very big file (e.g. a doublespace container file, or a very
+large executable or archive). It should be at least 5 megabytes, but
+you can do multiple tests on smaller files. Then do a COMP to verify
+that the file copied properly. (Turn off all caching when doing these
+tests, otherwise you will test your RAM and not the files). Then do
+10 COMPs, comparing the same file on the SCSI hard drive, i.e. "COMP
+realbig.doc realbig.doc". Then do it after the computer gets warm.
+
+I noticed my system which seems to work 100% would fail this test if
+the computer was left on for a few hours. It was worse with longer
+cables, and more devices on the SCSI bus. What seems to happen is
+that it gets a false ACK causing an extra byte to be inserted into the
+stream (and this is not detected). This can be caused by bad
+termination (the ACK can be reflected), or by noise when the chips
+work less well because of the heat, or when cables get too long for
+the speed.
+
+Remember, if it doesn't work under DOS, it probably won't work under
+Linux.

+README for the SCSI media changer driver
+========================================
+
+This is a driver for SCSI Medium Changer devices, which are listed
+with "Type: Medium Changer" in /proc/scsi/scsi.
+
+This is for *real* Jukeboxes. It is *not* supported to work with
+common small CD-ROM changers, neither one-lun-per-slot SCSI changers
+nor IDE drives.
+
+Userland tools available from here:
+ http://linux.bytesex.org/misc/changer.html
+
+
+General Information
+-------------------
+
+First some words about how changers work: A changer has 2 (possibly
+more) SCSI ID's. One for the changer device which controls the robot,
+and one for the device which actually reads and writes the data. The
+later may be anything, a MOD, a CD-ROM, a tape or whatever. For the
+changer device this is a "don't care", he *only* shuffles around the
+media, nothing else.
+
+
+The SCSI changer model is complex, compared to - for example - IDE-CD
+changers. But it allows to handle nearly all possible cases. It knows
+4 different types of changer elements:
+
+ media transport - this one shuffles around the media, i.e. the
+ transport arm. Also known as "picker".
+ storage - a slot which can hold a media.
+ import/export - the same as above, but is accessible from outside,
+ i.e. there the operator (you !) can use this to
+ fill in and remove media from the changer.
+ Sometimes named "mailslot".
+ data transfer - this is the device which reads/writes, i.e. the
+ CD-ROM / Tape / whatever drive.
+
+None of these is limited to one: A huge Jukebox could have slots for
+123 CD-ROM's, 5 CD-ROM readers (and therefore 6 SCSI ID's: the changer
+and each CD-ROM) and 2 transport arms. No problem to handle.
+
+
+How it is implemented
+---------------------
+
+I implemented the driver as character device driver with a NetBSD-like
+ioctl interface. Just grabbed NetBSD's header file and one of the
+other linux SCSI device drivers as starting point. The interface
+should be source code compatible with NetBSD. So if there is any
+software (anybody knows ???) which supports a BSDish changer driver,
+it should work with this driver too.
+
+Over time a few more ioctls where added, volume tag support for example
+wasn't covered by the NetBSD ioctl API.
+
+
+Current State
+-------------
+
+Support for more than one transport arm is not implemented yet (and
+nobody asked for it so far...).
+
+I test and use the driver myself with a 35 slot cdrom jukebox from
+Grundig. I got some reports telling it works ok with tape autoloaders
+(Exabyte, HP and DEC). Some People use this driver with amanda. It
+works fine with small (11 slots) and a huge (4 MOs, 88 slots)
+magneto-optical Jukebox. Probably with lots of other changers too, most
+(but not all :-) people mail me only if it does *not* work...
+
+I don't have any device lists, neither black-list nor white-list. Thus
+it is quite useless to ask me whenever a specific device is supported or
+not. In theory every changer device which supports the SCSI-2 media
+changer command set should work out-of-the-box with this driver. If it
+doesn't, it is a bug. Either within the driver or within the firmware
+of the changer device.
+
+
+Using it
+--------
+
+This is a character device with major number is 86, so use
+"mknod /dev/sch0 c 86 0" to create the special file for the driver.
+
+If the module finds the changer, it prints some messages about the
+device [ try "dmesg" if you don't see anything ] and should show up in
+/proc/devices. If not.... some changers use ID ? / LUN 0 for the
+device and ID ? / LUN 1 for the robot mechanism. But Linux does *not*
+look for LUNs other than 0 as default, because there are too many
+broken devices. So you can try:
+
+ 1) echo "scsi add-single-device 0 0 ID 1" > /proc/scsi/scsi
+ (replace ID with the SCSI-ID of the device)
+ 2) boot the kernel with "max_scsi_luns=1" on the command line
+ (append="max_scsi_luns=1" in lilo.conf should do the trick)
+
+
+Trouble?
+--------
+
+If you insmod the driver with "insmod debug=1", it will be verbose and
+prints a lot of stuff to the syslog. Compiling the kernel with
+CONFIG_SCSI_CONSTANTS=y improves the quality of the error messages a lot
+because the kernel will translate the error codes into human-readable
+strings then.
+
+You can display these messages with the dmesg command (or check the
+logfiles). If you email me some question because of a problem with the
+driver, please include these messages.
+
+
+Insmod options
+--------------
+
+debug=0/1
+ Enable debug messages (see above, default: 0).
+
+verbose=0/1
+ Be verbose (default: 1).
+
+init=0/1
+ Send INITIALIZE ELEMENT STATUS command to the changer
+ at insmod time (default: 1).
+
+timeout_init=<seconds>
+ timeout for the INITIALIZE ELEMENT STATUS command
+ (default: 3600).
+
+timeout_move=<seconds>
+ timeout for all other commands (default: 120).
+
+dt_id=<id1>,<id2>,...
+dt_lun=<lun1>,<lun2>,...
+ These two allow to specify the SCSI ID and LUN for the data
+ transfer elements. You likely don't need this as the jukebox
+ should provide this information. But some devices don't ...
+
+vendor_firsts=
+vendor_counts=
+vendor_labels=
+ These insmod options can be used to tell the driver that there
+ are some vendor-specific element types. Grundig for example
+ does this. Some jukeboxes have a printer to label fresh burned
+ CDs, which is addressed as element 0xc000 (type 5). To tell the
+ driver about this vendor-specific element, use this:
+ $ insmod ch \
+ vendor_firsts=0xc000 \
+ vendor_counts=1 \
+ vendor_labels=printer
+ All three insmod options accept up to four comma-separated
+ values, this way you can configure the element types 5-8.
+ You likely need the SCSI specs for the device in question to
+ find the correct values as they are not covered by the SCSI-2
+ standard.

+ Notes on Linux SCSI Generic (sg) driver
+ ---------------------------------------
+ 20020126
+Introduction
+============
+The SCSI Generic driver (sg) is one of the four "high level" SCSI device
+drivers along with sd, st and sr (disk, tape and CDROM respectively). Sg
+is more generalized (but lower level) than its siblings and tends to be
+used on SCSI devices that don't fit into the already serviced categories.
+Thus sg is used for scanners, CD writers and reading audio CDs digitally
+amongst other things.
+
+Rather than document the driver's interface here, version information
+is provided plus pointers (i.e. URLs) where to find documentation
+and examples.
+
+
+Major versions of the sg driver
+===============================
+There are three major versions of sg found in the linux kernel (lk):
+ - sg version 1 (original) from 1992 to early 1999 (lk 2.2.5) .
+ It is based in the sg_header interface structure.
+ - sg version 2 from lk 2.2.6 in the 2.2 series. It is based on
+ an extended version of the sg_header interface structure.
+ - sg version 3 found in the lk 2.4 series (and the lk 2.5 series).
+ It adds the sg_io_hdr interface structure.
+
+
+Sg driver documentation
+=======================
+The most recent documentation of the sg driver is kept at the Linux
+Documentation Project's (LDP) site:
+http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-Generic-HOWTO
+This describes the sg version 3 driver found in the lk 2.4 series.
+The LDP renders documents in single and multiple page HTML, postscript
+and pdf. This document can also be found at:
+http://sg.danny.cz/sg/p/sg_v3_ho.html
+
+Documentation for the version 2 sg driver found in the lk 2.2 series can
+be found at http://sg.danny.cz/sg/. A larger version
+is at: http://sg.danny.cz/sg/p/scsi-generic_long.txt.
+
+The original documentation for the sg driver (prior to lk 2.2.6) can be
+found at http://www.torque.net/sg/p/original/SCSI-Programming-HOWTO.txt
+and in the LDP archives.
+
+A changelog with brief notes can be found in the
+/usr/src/linux/include/scsi/sg.h file. Note that the glibc maintainers copy
+and edit this file (removing its changelog for example) before placing it
+in /usr/include/scsi/sg.h . Driver debugging information and other notes
+can be found at the top of the /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/sg.c file.
+
+A more general description of the Linux SCSI subsystem of which sg is a
+part can be found at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO .
+
+
+Example code and utilities
+==========================
+There are two packages of sg utilities:
+ - sg3_utils for the sg version 3 driver found in lk 2.4
+ - sg_utils for the sg version 2 (and original) driver found in lk 2.2
+ and earlier
+Both packages will work in the lk 2.4 series however sg3_utils offers more
+capabilities. They can be found at: http://sg.danny.cz/sg/sg3_utils.html and
+freecode.com
+
+Another approach is to look at the applications that use the sg driver.
+These include cdrecord, cdparanoia, SANE and cdrdao.
+
+
+Mapping of Linux kernel versions to sg driver versions
+======================================================
+Here is a list of linux kernels in the 2.4 series that had new version
+of the sg driver:
+ lk 2.4.0 : sg version 3.1.17
+ lk 2.4.7 : sg version 3.1.19
+ lk 2.4.10 : sg version 3.1.20 **
+ lk 2.4.17 : sg version 3.1.22
+
+** There were 3 changes to sg version 3.1.20 by third parties in the
+ next six linux kernel versions.
+
+For reference here is a list of linux kernels in the 2.2 series that had
+new version of the sg driver:
+ lk 2.2.0 : original sg version [with no version number]
+ lk 2.2.6 : sg version 2.1.31
+ lk 2.2.8 : sg version 2.1.32
+ lk 2.2.10 : sg version 2.1.34 [SG_GET_VERSION_NUM ioctl first appeared]
+ lk 2.2.14 : sg version 2.1.36
+ lk 2.2.16 : sg version 2.1.38
+ lk 2.2.17 : sg version 2.1.39
+ lk 2.2.20 : sg version 2.1.40
+
+The lk 2.5 development series has recently commenced and it currently
+contains sg version 3.5.23 which is functionally equivalent to sg
+version 3.1.22 found in lk 2.4.17 .

+SCSI subsystem documentation
+============================
+The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) maintains a document describing
+the SCSI subsystem in the Linux kernel (lk) 2.4 series. See:
+http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO . The LDP has single
+and multiple page HTML renderings as well as postscript and pdf.
+It can also be found at:
+http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.torque.net/scsi/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO
+
+Notes on using modules in the SCSI subsystem
+============================================
+The scsi support in the linux kernel can be modularized in a number of
+different ways depending upon the needs of the end user. To understand
+your options, we should first define a few terms.
+
+The scsi-core (also known as the "mid level") contains the core of scsi
+support. Without it you can do nothing with any of the other scsi drivers.
+The scsi core support can be a module (scsi_mod.o), or it can be built into
+the kernel. If the core is a module, it must be the first scsi module
+loaded, and if you unload the modules, it will have to be the last one
+unloaded. In practice the modprobe and rmmod commands (and "autoclean")
+will enforce the correct ordering of loading and unloading modules in
+the SCSI subsystem.
+
+The individual upper and lower level drivers can be loaded in any order
+once the scsi core is present in the kernel (either compiled in or loaded
+as a module). The disk driver (sd_mod.o), cdrom driver (sr_mod.o),
+tape driver ** (st.o) and scsi generics driver (sg.o) represent the upper
+level drivers to support the various assorted devices which can be
+controlled. You can for example load the tape driver to use the tape drive,
+and then unload it once you have no further need for the driver (and release
+the associated memory).
+
+The lower level drivers are the ones that support the individual cards that
+are supported for the hardware platform that you are running under. Those
+individual cards are often called Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). For example the
+aic7xxx.o driver is used to control all recent SCSI controller cards from
+Adaptec. Almost all lower level drivers can be built either as modules or
+built into the kernel.
+
+
+** There is a variant of the st driver for controlling OnStream tape
+ devices. Its module name is osst.o .

+[1] How SCSI commands travel through the midlayer and to EH
+
+[1-1] struct scsi_cmnd
+
+ Each SCSI command is represented with struct scsi_cmnd (== scmd). A
+scmd has two list_head's to link itself into lists. The two are
+scmd->list and scmd->eh_entry. The former is used for free list or
+per-device allocated scmd list and not of much interest to this EH
+discussion. The latter is used for completion and EH lists and unless
+otherwise stated scmds are always linked using scmd->eh_entry in this
+discussion.
+
+
+[1-2] How do scmd's get completed?
+
+ Once LLDD gets hold of a scmd, either the LLDD will complete the
+command by calling scsi_done callback passed from midlayer when
+invoking hostt->queuecommand() or SCSI midlayer will time it out.
+
+
+[1-2-1] Completing a scmd w/ scsi_done
+
+ For all non-EH commands, scsi_done() is the completion callback. It
+does the following.
+
+ 1. Delete timeout timer. If it fails, it means that timeout timer
+ has expired and is going to finish the command. Just return.
+
+ 2. Link scmd to per-cpu scsi_done_q using scmd->en_entry
+
+ 3. Raise SCSI_SOFTIRQ
+
+ SCSI_SOFTIRQ handler scsi_softirq calls scsi_decide_disposition() to
+determine what to do with the command. scsi_decide_disposition()
+looks at the scmd->result value and sense data to determine what to do
+with the command.
+
+ - SUCCESS
+ scsi_finish_command() is invoked for the command. The
+ function does some maintenance choirs and notify completion by
+ calling scmd->done() callback, which, for fs requests, would
+ be HLD completion callback - sd:sd_rw_intr, sr:rw_intr,
+ st:st_intr.
+
+ - NEEDS_RETRY
+ - ADD_TO_MLQUEUE
+ scmd is requeued to blk queue.
+
+ - otherwise
+ scsi_eh_scmd_add(scmd, 0) is invoked for the command. See
+ [1-3] for details of this function.
+
+
+[1-2-2] Completing a scmd w/ timeout
+
+ The timeout handler is scsi_times_out(). When a timeout occurs, this
+function
+
+ 1. invokes optional hostt->eh_timed_out() callback. Return value can
+ be one of
+
+ - EH_HANDLED
+ This indicates that eh_timed_out() dealt with the timeout. The
+ scmd is passed to __scsi_done() and thus linked into per-cpu
+ scsi_done_q. Normal command completion described in [1-2-1]
+ follows.
