SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/3] scsi: arcmsr: add driver module parameter - msi_enable, msix_enable
Dan,

There is our user feedback said that they have some system have MSI
interrupt issue.(but some system are working)
Those have MSI issue system all are old system, even if MSI interrupt
enable and request are successful, there is not any hardware interrupt
for scsi command. Cause each scsi command timeout. So msi_enable
parameter is a way to disable msi interrupt request.
Using legacy interrupt, those have MSI interrupt issue system are
working properly.

Thanks,
Ching
