Subject[PATCH] 2.4.23-pre8 driver udpate for MPT Fusion (2.05.10)
Here's a patch for 2.4.23-pre8 kernel for MPT Fusion driver, coming from LSI

This patch is large, so I have placed it on the LSI ftp site at:

A new email address is setup for directing any MPT Fusion questions:


Here is a list of the changes that have occured since the last release
of 2.05.05 made to last April.

(1) Check SCSI Port Page 2 DV bits to either
disable DV or limit DV to Inquiry only checks.

(2) Added sequence to allow the ID of a SAF-TE
device to be stored in IOC Page 4.

(3) The driver now checks NVRAM data and performs Level 1 Domain
Validation only if requested. This limitation can be set on a
per-device basis via the LSI Configuration Utility.

(4) The IOC Page 4 read is now done after the SCSI Port Settings
and the SCSI Device Page Headers are obtained.

(5) The return code from pci_map_sg is checked and a FAILED
status is returned if the return code indicates that a failure
occurred, as Scatter/Gather entries are being obtained.

is received, an error status is returned to the SCSI layer.
This status is received when the Fibre Channel firmware detects
a CRC error during a data transfer.

(7) If the SCSI layer request an abort or bus reset for an
IO that is not currently running, an error status is returned
and the scsi_done call is not performed. This prevents problems
when the IO has completed before the abort or bus reset is received.

(8) In a mixed device configuration (Ultra 320 and Non-Ultra
320 devices are present on an HBA channel), code was fixed to prevent
negotiating for QAS on all Ultra 320 devices on that channel.
This keeps the Ultra 320 devices from dominating the SCSI bus,
preventing Non-Ultra 320 IO's from executing.

(9) The SenseBufferLength field is properly set when an IOCTL
IO is processed. This allows sense data to be obtained and returned
to the application if a Check Condition occurs on the IO.

(10) Zero out unused CDB field on SCSI IO commands.
