-/*
- * Many thanks to Lode Leroy <Lode.Leroy@www.ibase.be>, who tested so many
- * ALPHA patches to this driver on an EASYSTOR LS-120 ATAPI floppy drive.
- *
- * Ver 0.1 Oct 17 96 Initial test version, mostly based on ide-tape.c.
- * Ver 0.2 Oct 31 96 Minor changes.
- * Ver 0.3 Dec 2 96 Fixed error recovery bug.
- * Ver 0.4 Jan 26 97 Add support for the HDIO_GETGEO ioctl.
- * Ver 0.5 Feb 21 97 Add partitions support.
- * Use the minimum of the LBA and CHS capacities.
- * Avoid hwgroup->rq == NULL on the last irq.
- * Fix potential null dereferencing with DEBUG_LOG.
- * Ver 0.8 Dec 7 97 Increase irq timeout from 10 to 50 seconds.
- * Add media write-protect detection.
- * Issue START command only if TEST UNIT READY fails.
- * Add work-around for IOMEGA ZIP revision 21.D.
- * Remove idefloppy_get_capabilities().
- * Ver 0.9 Jul 4 99 Fix a bug which might have caused the number of
- * bytes requested on each interrupt to be zero.
- * Thanks to <shanos@es.co.nz> for pointing this out.
- * Ver 0.9.sv Jan 6 01 Sam Varshavchik <mrsam@courier-mta.com>
- * Implement low level formatting. Reimplemented
- * IDEFLOPPY_CAPABILITIES_PAGE, since we need the srfp
- * bit. My LS-120 drive barfs on
- * IDEFLOPPY_CAPABILITIES_PAGE, but maybe it's just me.
- * Compromise by not reporting a failure to get this
- * mode page. Implemented four IOCTLs in order to
- * implement formatting. IOCTls begin with 0x4600,
- * 0x46 is 'F' as in Format.
- * Jan 9 01 Userland option to select format verify.
- * Added PC_SUPPRESS_ERROR flag - some idefloppy drives
- * do not implement IDEFLOPPY_CAPABILITIES_PAGE, and
- * return a sense error. Suppress error reporting in
- * this particular case in order to avoid spurious
- * errors in syslog. The culprit is
- * idefloppy_get_capability_page(), so move it to
- * idefloppy_begin_format() so that it's not used
- * unless absolutely necessary.
- * If drive does not support format progress indication
- * monitor the dsc bit in the status register.
- * Also, O_NDELAY on open will allow the device to be
- * opened without a disk available. This can be used to
- * open an unformatted disk, or get the device capacity.
- * Ver 0.91 Dec 11 99 Added IOMEGA Clik! drive support by
- * <paul@paulbristow.net>
- * Ver 0.92 Oct 22 00 Paul Bristow became official maintainer for this
- * driver. Included Powerbook internal zip kludge.
- * Ver 0.93 Oct 24 00 Fixed bugs for Clik! drive
- * no disk on insert and disk change now works
- * Ver 0.94 Oct 27 00 Tidied up to remove strstr(Clik) everywhere
- * Ver 0.95 Nov 7 00 Brought across to kernel 2.4
- * Ver 0.96 Jan 7 01 Actually in line with release version of 2.4.0
- * including set_bit patch from Rusty Russell
- * Ver 0.97 Jul 22 01 Merge 0.91-0.96 onto 0.9.sv for ac series
- * Ver 0.97.sv Aug 3 01 Backported from 2.4.7-ac3
- * Ver 0.98 Oct 26 01 Split idefloppy_transfer_pc into two pieces to
- * fix a lost interrupt problem. It appears the busy
- * bit was being deasserted by my IOMEGA ATAPI ZIP 100
- * drive before the drive was actually ready.
- * Ver 0.98a Oct 29 01 Expose delay value so we can play.
- * Ver 0.99 Feb 24 02 Remove duplicate code, modify clik! detection code
- * to support new PocketZip drives

-/*
- * Ver 0.1 Nov 1 95 Pre-working code :-)
- * Ver 0.2 Nov 23 95 A short backup (few megabytes) and restore procedure
- * was successful ! (Using tar cvf ... on the block
- * device interface).
- * A longer backup resulted in major swapping, bad
- * overall Linux performance and eventually failed as
- * we received non serial read-ahead requests from the
- * buffer cache.
- * Ver 0.3 Nov 28 95 Long backups are now possible, thanks to the
- * character device interface. Linux's responsiveness
- * and performance doesn't seem to be much affected
- * from the background backup procedure.
- * Some general mtio.h magnetic tape operations are
- * now supported by our character device. As a result,
- * popular tape utilities are starting to work with
- * ide tapes :-)
- * The following configurations were tested:
- * 1. An IDE ATAPI TAPE shares the same interface
- * and irq with an IDE ATAPI CDROM.
- * 2. An IDE ATAPI TAPE shares the same interface
- * and irq with a normal IDE disk.
- * Both configurations seemed to work just fine !
- * However, to be on the safe side, it is meanwhile
- * recommended to give the IDE TAPE its own interface
- * and irq.
- * The one thing which needs to be done here is to
- * add a "request postpone" feature to ide.c,
- * so that we won't have to wait for the tape to finish
- * performing a long media access (DSC) request (such
- * as a rewind) before we can access the other device
- * on the same interface. This effect doesn't disturb
- * normal operation most of the time because read/write
- * requests are relatively fast, and once we are
- * performing one tape r/w request, a lot of requests
- * from the other device can be queued and ide.c will
- * service all of them after this single tape request.
- * Ver 1.0 Dec 11 95 Integrated into Linux 1.3.46 development tree.
- * On each read / write request, we now ask the drive
- * if we can transfer a constant number of bytes
- * (a parameter of the drive) only to its buffers,
- * without causing actual media access. If we can't,
- * we just wait until we can by polling the DSC bit.
- * This ensures that while we are not transferring
- * more bytes than the constant referred to above, the
- * interrupt latency will not become too high and
- * we won't cause an interrupt timeout, as happened
- * occasionally in the previous version.
- * While polling for DSC, the current request is
- * postponed and ide.c is free to handle requests from
- * the other device. This is handled transparently to
- * ide.c. The hwgroup locking method which was used
- * in the previous version was removed.
- * Use of new general features which are provided by
- * ide.c for use with atapi devices.
- * (Programming done by Mark Lord)
- * Few potential bug fixes (Again, suggested by Mark)
- * Single character device data transfers are now
- * not limited in size, as they were before.
- * We are asking the tape about its recommended
- * transfer unit and send a larger data transfer
- * as several transfers of the above size.
- * For best results, use an integral number of this
- * basic unit (which is shown during driver
- * initialization). I will soon add an ioctl to get
- * this important parameter.
- * Our data transfer buffer is allocated on startup,
- * rather than before each data transfer. This should
- * ensure that we will indeed have a data buffer.
- * Ver 1.1 Dec 14 95 Fixed random problems which occurred when the tape
- * shared an interface with another device.
- * (poll_for_dsc was a complete mess).
- * Removed some old (non-active) code which had
- * to do with supporting buffer cache originated
- * requests.
- * The block device interface can now be opened, so
- * that general ide driver features like the unmask
- * interrupts flag can be selected with an ioctl.
- * This is the only use of the block device interface.
- * New fast pipelined operation mode (currently only on
- * writes). When using the pipelined mode, the
- * throughput can potentially reach the maximum
- * tape supported throughput, regardless of the
- * user backup program. On my tape drive, it sometimes
- * boosted performance by a factor of 2. Pipelined
- * mode is enabled by default, but since it has a few
- * downfalls as well, you may want to disable it.
- * A short explanation of the pipelined operation mode
- * is available below.
- * Ver 1.2 Jan 1 96 Eliminated pipelined mode race condition.
- * Added pipeline read mode. As a result, restores
- * are now as fast as backups.
- * Optimized shared interface behavior. The new behavior
- * typically results in better IDE bus efficiency and
- * higher tape throughput.
- * Pre-calculation of the expected read/write request
- * service time, based on the tape's parameters. In
- * the pipelined operation mode, this allows us to
- * adjust our polling frequency to a much lower value,
- * and thus to dramatically reduce our load on Linux,
- * without any decrease in performance.
- * Implemented additional mtio.h operations.
- * The recommended user block size is returned by
- * the MTIOCGET ioctl.
- * Additional minor changes.
- * Ver 1.3 Feb 9 96 Fixed pipelined read mode bug which prevented the
- * use of some block sizes during a restore procedure.
- * The character device interface will now present a
- * continuous view of the media - any mix of block sizes
- * during a backup/restore procedure is supported. The
- * driver will buffer the requests internally and
- * convert them to the tape's recommended transfer
- * unit, making performance almost independent of the

- * if the application data rate is higher than 1100 KB/s;
- * similar approach to lower-than-500 kB/s ?
- * 7) 6.6 Comparison; wouldn't it be better to allow different
- * strategies for read and write ?
- * Wouldn't it be better to control the tape buffer

-IDE ATAPI streaming tape driver.
-
-This driver is a part of the Linux ide driver.
-
-The driver, in co-operation with ide.c, basically traverses the
-request-list for the block device interface. The character device
-interface, on the other hand, creates new requests, adds them
-to the request-list of the block device, and waits for their completion.
-
-The block device major and minor numbers are determined from the
-tape's relative position in the ide interfaces, as explained in ide.c.
-
-The character device interface consists of the following devices:
-
-ht0 major 37, minor 0 first IDE tape, rewind on close.
-ht1 major 37, minor 1 second IDE tape, rewind on close.
-...
-nht0 major 37, minor 128 first IDE tape, no rewind on close.
-nht1 major 37, minor 129 second IDE tape, no rewind on close.
-...
-
-The general magnetic tape commands compatible interface, as defined by
-include/linux/mtio.h, is accessible through the character device.
-
-General ide driver configuration options, such as the interrupt-unmask
-flag, can be configured by issuing an ioctl to the block device interface,
-as any other ide device.
-
-Our own ide-tape ioctl's can be issued to either the block device or
-the character device interface.
-
-Maximal throughput with minimal bus load will usually be achieved in the
-following scenario:
-
- 1. ide-tape is operating in the pipelined operation mode.
- 2. No buffering is performed by the user backup program.
-
-Testing was done with a 2 GB CONNER CTMA 4000 IDE ATAPI Streaming Tape Drive.
-
-Here are some words from the first releases of hd.c, which are quoted
-in ide.c and apply here as well:
-
-| Special care is recommended. Have Fun!
-
-Possible improvements:
-
-1. Support for the ATAPI overlap protocol.
-
-In order to maximize bus throughput, we currently use the DSC
-overlap method which enables ide.c to service requests from the
-other device while the tape is busy executing a command. The
-DSC overlap method involves polling the tape's status register
-for the DSC bit, and servicing the other device while the tape
-isn't ready.
-
-In the current QIC development standard (December 1995),
-it is recommended that new tape drives will *in addition*
-implement the ATAPI overlap protocol, which is used for the
-same purpose - efficient use of the IDE bus, but is interrupt
-driven and thus has much less CPU overhead.
-
-ATAPI overlap is likely to be supported in most new ATAPI
-devices, including new ATAPI cdroms, and thus provides us
-a method by which we can achieve higher throughput when
-sharing a (fast) ATA-2 disk with any (slow) new ATAPI device.

- Information regarding the Enhanced IDE drive in Linux 2.6
-
-==============================================================================
-
-
- The hdparm utility can be used to control various IDE features on a
- running system. It is packaged separately. Please Look for it on popular
- linux FTP sites.
-
-
-
-*** IMPORTANT NOTICES: BUGGY IDE CHIPSETS CAN CORRUPT DATA!!
-*** =================
-*** PCI versions of the CMD640 and RZ1000 interfaces are now detected
-*** automatically at startup when PCI BIOS support is configured.
-***
-*** Linux disables the "prefetch" ("readahead") mode of the RZ1000
-*** to prevent data corruption possible due to hardware design flaws.
-***
-*** For the CMD640, linux disables "IRQ unmasking" (hdparm -u1) on any
-*** drive for which the "prefetch" mode of the CMD640 is turned on.
-*** If "prefetch" is disabled (hdparm -p8), then "IRQ unmasking" can be
-*** used again.
-***
-*** For the CMD640, linux disables "32bit I/O" (hdparm -c1) on any drive
-*** for which the "prefetch" mode of the CMD640 is turned off.
-*** If "prefetch" is enabled (hdparm -p9), then "32bit I/O" can be
-*** used again.
-***
-*** The CMD640 is also used on some Vesa Local Bus (VLB) cards, and is *NOT*
-*** automatically detected by Linux. For safe, reliable operation with such
-*** interfaces, one *MUST* use the "cmd640.probe_vlb" kernel option.
-***
-*** Use of the "serialize" option is no longer necessary.
-
-================================================================================
-Common pitfalls:
-
-- 40-conductor IDE cables are capable of transferring data in DMA modes up to
- udma2, but no faster.
-
-- If possible devices should be attached to separate channels if they are
- available. Typically the disk on the first and CD-ROM on the second.
-
-- If you mix devices on the same cable, please consider using similar devices
- in respect of the data transfer mode they support.
-
-- Even better try to stick to the same vendor and device type on the same
- cable.
-
-================================================================================
-
-This is the multiple IDE interface driver, as evolved from hd.c.
-
-It supports up to 9 IDE interfaces per default, on one or more IRQs (usually
-14 & 15). There can be up to two drives per interface, as per the ATA-6 spec.
-
-Primary: ide0, port 0x1f0; major=3; hda is minor=0; hdb is minor=64
-Secondary: ide1, port 0x170; major=22; hdc is minor=0; hdd is minor=64
-Tertiary: ide2, port 0x1e8; major=33; hde is minor=0; hdf is minor=64
-Quaternary: ide3, port 0x168; major=34; hdg is minor=0; hdh is minor=64
-fifth.. ide4, usually PCI, probed
-sixth.. ide5, usually PCI, probed
-
-To access devices on interfaces > ide0, device entries please make sure that
-device files for them are present in /dev. If not, please create such
-entries, by using /dev/MAKEDEV.
-
-This driver automatically probes for most IDE interfaces (including all PCI
-ones), for the drives/geometries attached to those interfaces, and for the IRQ
-lines being used by the interfaces (normally 14, 15 for ide0/ide1).
-
-Any number of interfaces may share a single IRQ if necessary, at a slight
-performance penalty, whether on separate cards or a single VLB card.
-The IDE driver automatically detects and handles this. However, this may
-or may not be harmful to your hardware.. two or more cards driving the same IRQ
-can potentially burn each other's bus driver, though in practice this
-seldom occurs. Be careful, and if in doubt, don't do it!
-
-Drives are normally found by auto-probing and/or examining the CMOS/BIOS data.
-For really weird situations, the apparent (fdisk) geometry can also be specified
-on the kernel "command line" using LILO. The format of such lines is:
-
- ide_core.chs=[interface_number.device_number]:cyls,heads,sects
-or ide_core.cdrom=[interface_number.device_number]
-
-For example:
-
- ide_core.chs=1.0:1050,32,64 ide_core.cdrom=1.1
-
-The results of successful auto-probing may override the physical geometry/irq
-specified, though the "original" geometry may be retained as the "logical"
-geometry for partitioning purposes (fdisk).
-
-If the auto-probing during boot time confuses a drive (ie. the drive works
-with hd.c but not with ide.c), then an command line option may be specified
-for each drive for which you'd like the drive to skip the hardware
-probe/identification sequence. For example:
-
- ide_core.noprobe=0.1
-or
- ide_core.chs=1.0:768,16,32
- ide_core.noprobe=1.0
-
-Note that when only one IDE device is attached to an interface, it should be
-jumpered as "single" or "master", *not* "slave". Many folks have had
-"trouble" with cdroms because of this requirement, so the driver now probes
-for both units, though success is more likely when the drive is jumpered
-correctly.
-
-Courtesy of Scott Snyder and others, the driver supports ATAPI cdrom drives
-such as the NEC-260 and the new MITSUMI triple/quad speed drives.
-Such drives will be identified at boot time, just like a hard disk.
-
-If for some reason your cdrom drive is *not* found at boot time, you can force
-the probe to look harder by supplying a kernel command line parameter
-via LILO, such as:
-
- ide_core.cdrom=1.0 /* "master" on second interface (hdc) */
-or
- ide_core.cdrom=1.1 /* "slave" on second interface (hdd) */
-
-For example, a GW2000 system might have a hard drive on the primary
-interface (/dev/hda) and an IDE cdrom drive on the secondary interface
-(/dev/hdc). To mount a CD in the cdrom drive, one would use something like:
-
- ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
- mkdir /mnt/cdrom
- mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom -t iso9660 -o ro
-
-If, after doing all of the above, mount doesn't work and you see
-errors from the driver (with dmesg) complaining about `status=0xff',
-this means that the hardware is not responding to the driver's attempts
-to read it. One of the following is probably the problem:
-
- - Your hardware is broken.
-
- - You are using the wrong address for the device, or you have the
- drive jumpered wrong. Review the configuration instructions above.
-
- - Your IDE controller requires some nonstandard initialization sequence
- before it will work properly. If this is the case, there will often
- be a separate MS-DOS driver just for the controller. IDE interfaces
- on sound cards usually fall into this category. Such configurations
- can often be made to work by first booting MS-DOS, loading the
- appropriate drivers, and then warm-booting linux (without powering
- off). This can be automated using loadlin in the MS-DOS autoexec.
-
-If you always get timeout errors, interrupts from the drive are probably
-not making it to the host. Check how you have the hardware jumpered
-and make sure it matches what the driver expects (see the configuration
-instructions above). If you have a PCI system, also check the BIOS
-setup; I've had one report of a system which was shipped with IRQ 15
-disabled by the BIOS.
-
-The kernel is able to execute binaries directly off of the cdrom,
-provided it is mounted with the default block size of 1024 (as above).
-
-Please pass on any feedback on any of this stuff to the maintainer,
-whose address can be found in linux/MAINTAINERS.
-
-The IDE driver is modularized. The high level disk/CD-ROM/tape/floppy
-drivers can always be compiled as loadable modules, the chipset drivers
-can only be compiled into the kernel, and the core code (ide.c) can be
-compiled as a loadable module provided no chipset support is needed.
-
-When using ide.c as a module in combination with kmod, add:
-
- alias block-major-3 ide-probe
-
-to a configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d/.
-
-When ide.c is used as a module, you can pass command line parameters to the
-driver using the "options=" keyword to insmod, while replacing any ',' with
-';'.
-

-
-Summary of ide driver parameters for kernel command line
---------------------------------------------------------
-
-For legacy IDE VLB host drivers (ali14xx/dtc2278/ht6560b/qd65xx/umc8672)
-you need to explicitly enable probing by using "probe" kernel parameter,
-i.e. to enable probing for ALI M14xx chipsets (ali14xx host driver) use:
-
-* "ali14xx.probe" boot option when ali14xx driver is built-in the kernel
-
-* "probe" module parameter when ali14xx driver is compiled as module
- ("modprobe ali14xx probe")
-
-Also for legacy CMD640 host driver (cmd640) you need to use "probe_vlb"
-kernel paremeter to enable probing for VLB version of the chipset (PCI ones
-are detected automatically).
-
-You also need to use "probe" kernel parameter for ide-4drives driver
-(support for IDE generic chipset with four drives on one port).
-
-To enable support for IDE doublers on Amiga use "doubler" kernel parameter
-for gayle host driver (i.e. "gayle.doubler" if the driver is built-in).
-
-To force ignoring cable detection (this should be needed only if you're using
-short 40-wires cable which cannot be automatically detected - if this is not
-a case please report it as a bug instead) use "ignore_cable" kernel parameter:
-
-* "ide_core.ignore_cable=[interface_number]" boot option if IDE is built-in
- (i.e. "ide_core.ignore_cable=1" to force ignoring cable for "ide1")
-
-* "ignore_cable=[interface_number]" module parameter (for ide_core module)
- if IDE is compiled as module
-
-Other kernel parameters for ide_core are:
-
-* "nodma=[interface_number.device_number]" to disallow DMA for a device
-
-* "noflush=[interface_number.device_number]" to disable flush requests
-
-* "nohpa=[interface_number.device_number]" to disable Host Protected Area
-
-* "noprobe=[interface_number.device_number]" to skip probing
-
-* "nowerr=[interface_number.device_number]" to ignore the WRERR_STAT bit
-
-* "cdrom=[interface_number.device_number]" to force device as a CD-ROM
-
-* "chs=[interface_number.device_number]" to force device as a disk (using CHS)
-
-================================================================================
-
-Some Terminology
-----------------
-IDE = Integrated Drive Electronics, meaning that each drive has a built-in
-controller, which is why an "IDE interface card" is not a "controller card".
-
-ATA = AT (the old IBM 286 computer) Attachment Interface, a draft American
-National Standard for connecting hard drives to PCs. This is the official
-name for "IDE".
-
-The latest standards define some enhancements, known as the ATA-6 spec,
-which grew out of vendor-specific "Enhanced IDE" (EIDE) implementations.
-
-ATAPI = ATA Packet Interface, a new protocol for controlling the drives,
-similar to SCSI protocols, created at the same time as the ATA2 standard.
-ATAPI is currently used for controlling CDROM, TAPE and FLOPPY (ZIP or
-LS120/240) devices, removable R/W cartridges, and for high capacity hard disk
-drives.

-IDE warm-plug HOWTO
-===================
-
-To warm-plug devices on a port 'idex':
-
-# echo -n "1" > /sys/class/ide_port/idex/delete_devices
-
-unplug old device(s) and plug new device(s)
-
-# echo -n "1" > /sys/class/ide_port/idex/scan
-
-done
-
-NOTE: please make sure that partitions are unmounted and that there are
-no other active references to devices before doing "delete_devices" step,
-also do not attempt "scan" step on devices currently in use -- otherwise
-results may be unpredictable and lead to data loss if you're unlucky
