Subject[PATCH 6/6] cciss: add cciss_tape_cmds module paramter
From
Date
From: Stephen M. Cameron <scameron@beardog.cce.hp.com>

This is to allow number of commands reserved for use by SCSI tape drives
and medium changers to be adjusted at driver load time via the kernel
parameter cciss_tape_cmds, with a default value of 6, and a range
of 2 - 16 inclusive. Previously, the driver limited the number of
commands which could be queued to the SCSI half of the the driver
to only 2. This is to fix the problem that if you had more than
two tape drives, you couldn't, for example, erase or rewind them all
at the same time.

before i/o can proceed again to a tape drive which was reset.

+There is a cciss_tape_cmds module parameter which can be used to make cciss
+allocate more commands for use by tape drives. Ordinarily only a few commands
+(6) are allocated for tape drives because tape drives are slow and
+infrequently used and the primary purpose of Smart Array controllers is to
+act as a RAID controller for disk drives, so the vast majority of commands
+are allocated for disk devices. However, if you have more than a few tape
+drives attached to a smart array, the default number of commands may not be
+enought (for example, if you have 8 tape drives, you could only rewind 6
+at one time with the default number of commands.) The cciss_tape_cmds module
+parameter allows more commands (up to 16 more) to be allocated for use by
+tape drives. For example:
+
+ insmod cciss.ko cciss_tape_cmds=16
+
+Or, as a kernel boot parameter passed in via grub: cciss.cciss_tape_cmds=8
