    +3 Older Version : 00.00.04.17.1-rc1
    +
    +1. Add the Online Controller Reset (OCR) to the Driver.
    + OCR is the new feature for megaraid_sas driver which
    + will allow the fw to do the chip reset which will not
    + affact the OS hbhavious.
    +
    + To add the OCR support, driver need to do:
    + a). reset the controller chip -- Xscale and Gen2.
    +
    + b). during the reset, driver will store the pending
    + cmds to pending queue.
    +
    + c). Also in driver's timeout routine, driver will
    + report to OS as reset.
    +
    + d). in Driver's ISR routine, if driver get the FW
    + state as state change and FW in Failure status,
    + driver will start to do the controller reset.
    +
    + e). If driver goes to timeout, but driver is in
    + operational status, driver will check if fw in failed
    + status, if yes, driver will do OCR to FW upto three times.
    +
    + f). Before driver kill adapter, driver will do last chance of
    + OCR to see if driver can bring back the FW.
    +
    +2. Add the CTIO support to the driver.
    +3. Add the support update flag to the driver to tell LSI megaraid_sas
    + application which driver will support the device update. So application
    + will not need to do the device update after application add/del the device
    + from the system.
    +
    +4. Add the input parameter max_sectors to 1MB support to our GEN2 controller.
    + customer can use the input paramenter max_sectors to add 1MB support to GEN2
    + controller.
