    SubjectOSDL: STP hardware uprev

    We've (finally) uprev'd all the 4 and 8 CPU machines with newer, great SCSI RAID
    controllers. ( For some range of 'great' )

    The new cards are Adaptec 2200S SCSI RAID, and we now have true 64 bit PAE
    support. No more bounce buffers!

    However, IO tests run post 3/23/04 will not be comparable to tests run before,
    due to the hardware change.

    Please, run a bunch of STP tests, and complain.

    More Details:
    64MB Cache ( not battery-backed )
    firmware version V4.0 ( Build 6011)
    2 each in the 4-cpu machines,
    4 in the 8-cpu machines
    Drive cache is set to write-through on all drives.

    4-way dmesg:
    AAC0: kernel 4.0.4 build 6011
    AAC0: monitor 4.0.4 build 6011
    AAC0: bios 4.0.0 build 6011
    AAC0: serial 0ba60f4
    AAC1: kernel 4.0.4 build 6011
    AAC1: monitor 4.0.4 build 6011
    AAC1: bios 4.0.0 build 6011
    AAC1: serial 0ba6120

    This makes us happy:
    Mar 25 07:35:52 stp8-000 kernel: AAC0: 64 Bit PAE enabled
    Mar 25 07:35:53 stp8-000 kernel: AAC1: 64 Bit PAE enabled
    Mar 25 07:35:54 stp8-000 kernel: AAC2: 64 Bit PAE enabled
    Mar 25 07:35:56 stp8-000 kernel: AAC3: 64 Bit PAE enabled
    Thanks and praise to Our Own Russell Evans, for doing the
    speedy install.
