SubjectRe: scsi_cmnd data_buffer checksum
Martin,

Thanks. I will go thru the DIF document and code.

But I had a quick question, isn't that drive has to support "protection enable" also. Also, does Controller FW need to do anything extra to send DIF block down to drive. Ideally we will be sending 512 byte blocks down to drive.
