-The sym53c500_cs driver originated as an add-on to David Hinds' pcmcia-cs
-package, and was written by Tom Corner (tcorner@via.at). A rewrite was
-long overdue, and the current version addresses the following concerns:
-
- (1) extensive kernel changes between 2.4 and 2.6.
- (2) deprecated PCMCIA support outside the kernel.
-
-All the USE_BIOS code has been ripped out. It was never used, and could
-not have worked anyway. The USE_DMA code is likewise gone. Many thanks
-to YOKOTA Hiroshi (nsp_cs driver) and David Hinds (qlogic_cs driver) for
-the code fragments I shamelessly adapted for this work. Thanks also to
-Christoph Hellwig for his patient tutelage while I stumbled about.

-The Symbios Logic 53c500 chip was used in the "newer" (circa 1997) version
-of the New Media Bus Toaster PCMCIA SCSI controller. Presumably there are
-other products using this chip, but I've never laid eyes (much less hands)
-on one.
-
-Through the years, there have been a number of downloads of the pcmcia-cs
-version of this driver, and I guess it worked for those users. It worked
-for Tom Corner, and it works for me. Your mileage will probably vary.
