SubjectRe: [NEW SCSI DRIVER] for 53c700 chip and NCR_D700 card against 2.4.4
I've implemented most of these as you suggest, with these exceptions:

> > + default:
> > + printk(KERN_INFO "scsi%d (%d:%d): Unexpected message %s: ",
> > + host->host_no, pun, lun,
> > + NCR_700_phase[(dsps & 0xf00) >> 8]);
> > + print_msg(hostdata->msgin);
> > + printk("\n");
> It would be nice with a KERN_XX before "\n" (yes, I recognize that
> print_msg does not do this :( )

The KERN_XX only go at the beginning of an output line (otherwise you see rather annoying <n> embedded in the log---the smc-mca driver has a hugely irritating example of this). print_msg doesn't do a carriage return by itself, so these three prints are really only one line (and hence all done under the KERN_INFO).

The "OUTSTANDING TAGS.." message is another one of these---it prints a list of tags all on one line. said:
> + if(request_irq(irq, NCR_700_intr, SA_SHIRQ, "NCR_D700",
> +host)) {
> + printk(KERN_ERR "NCR D700, channel %d: irq
> +problem, detatching\n", i);
> + NCR_700_release(host);
> + release_region(host->base, 64);
> + continue;
> + }

Actually, I need to remove the release_region here (since it's done in NCR_700_release) and add a scsi_unregister.

There's no need to do a scsi_unregister in _release; scsi_unregister is only really used to tell the mid layer to relinquish a host after an error. In _release, the mid layer is telling you that it has released the host and we need to clean up.

Thanks for the updates, I'll post another patch once I've got a few other people's suggestions rolled in.
