- ****************************************************************
- * This driver supports the Adaptec I2O RAID and DPT SmartRAID V I2O boards.
- *
- * CREDITS:
- * The original linux driver was ported to Linux by Karen White while at
- * Dell Computer. It was ported from Bob Pasteur's (of DPT) original
- * non-Linux driver. Mark Salyzyn and Bob Pasteur consulted on the original
- * driver.
- *
- * 2.0 version of the driver by Deanna Bonds and Mark Salyzyn.
- *
- * HISTORY:
- * The driver was originally ported to linux version 2.0.34
- *
- * V2.0 Rewrite of driver. Re-architectured based on i2o subsystem.
- * This was the first full GPL version since the last version used
- * i2osig headers which were not GPL. Developer Testing version.
- * V2.1 Internal testing
- * V2.2 First released version
- *
- * V2.3
- * Changes:
- * Added Raptor Support
- * Fixed bug causing system to hang under extreme load with
- * management utilities running (removed GFP_DMA from kmalloc flags)
- *
- *
- * V2.4 First version ready to be submitted to be embedded in the kernel
- * Changes:
- * Implemented suggestions from Alan Cox
- * Added calculation of resid for sg layer
- * Better error handling
- * Added checking underflow conditions
- * Added DATAPROTECT checking
- * Changed error return codes
- * Fixed pointer bug in bus reset routine
- * Enabled hba reset from ioctls (allows a FW flash to reboot and use the new
- * FW without having to reboot)
- * Changed proc output
- *
- * TODO:
- * Add 64 bit Scatter Gather when compiled on 64 bit architectures
- * Add sparse lun scanning
- * Add code that checks if a device that had been taken offline is
- * now online (at the FW level) when test unit ready or inquiry
- * command from scsi-core
- * Add proc read interface
- * busrescan command
- * rescan command
- * Add code to rescan routine that notifies scsi-core about new devices
- * Add support for C-PCI (hotplug stuff)
- * Add ioctl passthru error recovery
- *
- * NOTES:
- * The DPT card optimizes the order of processing commands. Consequently,
- * a command may take up to 6 minutes to complete after it has been sent
- * to the board.
- *
- * The files dpti_ioctl.h dptsig.h osd_defs.h osd_util.h sys_info.h are part of the
- * interface files for Adaptec's management routines. These define the structures used
- * in the ioctls. They are written to be portable. They are hard to read, but I need
- * to use them 'as is' or I can miss changes in the interface.
