    SubjectRe: sata_sil 3112 activity LED patch

    Hello,

    I have tested the patch against my DawiControl DC-150 RAID controller
    which is basically an add-on card with a SiI 3112 ASIC and a flash ROM.
    The activity LED of my case is directly connected to the add-on card.

    Unfortunately your patch doesn't have any effect on the LED. The
    activity LED gets turned on by the card's BIOS at boot time and
    continues to shine until I shut down the computer.
    On the other hand it did not erase my Flash ROM and I haven't spotted
    any data loss so far.

    The LED does work as expected under that other OS as soon as Silicon
    Image's reference driver is loaded, hence it is connected correctly.

    Test setup:
    I'm using DawiControl's version of the BIOS and not the reference BIOS
    of Silicon Image. The test system is a Tualatin Celeron 1400 with an
    i440BX based mainboard. The following hard disk is connected to the
    controller: Seagate ST3160827AS (native SATA interface). The sata_sil
    driver is loaded as a module.
    Test kernel is vanilla 2.6.12.2. No tainted modules were used
    while doing these tests.

    If you require more information, don't hesitate to contact me.

    Regards
    Christian Kroll
