-
- 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,

- * 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.

- for ISA-200S SCSI adapter.
-

-
- * scsi.c: Mask device type with 0x1f during scan_scsis.
- Add support for deadlocking, err, make that getting out of

- to limit requests to one host adapter at a time.
-
- * scsi.c: Bugfix - pass pid, not SCpnt as second arg to
- scsi_times_out.
-
- * scsi.c: Restore interrupt state to previous value instead of using

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

-
- 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_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.

- when we discover a device. Free pointer before returning.

-
- * 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)

- file_operations fields.
-
- * st.c, st.h: Add changes from Kai Makisara, dated Jun 22.

- 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.

-
- * 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.

-
-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 11:33:02 1994
-
- * Linux 1.1.3 released.
-

- 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.

- prompt. Supply jumpstart flag if we are resetting and need the
- command restarted. Fix so that we return 1 if we detect a card
- so that multiple card detection works correctly. Add yet another

- with handshaking, assume device is faulty until we know it not to be
- the case. Add DEBUG_INIT symbol to dump info as we scan for devices.
- Zero sense buffer so we can tell if we need to request it. When
- examining sense information, request sense if buffer is all zero.
- If RESET, request sense information to see what to do next.
-
- * scsi_debug.c: Change some constants to use symbols like INT_MAX.
-
- * scsi_ioctl.c (kernel_scsi_ioctl): New function -for making ioctl
- calls from kernel space.
-

- * sd_ioctl.c: Add BLKFLSBUF ioctl.
-
- * seagate.c: Add new compile time options for ARBITRATE,
- SLOW_HANDSHAKE, and SLOW_RATE. Update assembly loops for transferring

-
- * scsi_ioctl.c: Make ioctl_probe function more idiot-proof. If

- clear lockable flag. Add SCSI_IOCTL_GET_IDLUN ioctl. Do not attempt
- to lock door for devices that do not have lockable semaphore set.
-
- * sd.c: Fix race condition for multiple disks. Use INIT_SCSI_REQUEST
- instead of INIT_REQUEST. Allow sector sizes of 1024 and 256. For

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