- 1. No BIOS support
- 2. DEC21050 PCI-PCI bridge with multiple controller chips on secondary bus
- 3. DEC2115X PCI-PCI bridge with multiple controller chips on secondary bus
- 4. All three SCSI connectors may be used simultaneously without
- SCSI "stub" effects.
-
-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.
