4.00.06 - Fix timeout with initial FFDC command
4.00.05 - Remove wish_block from init routine
- Use linux/spinlock.h instead of asm/spinlock.h for kernels
2.3.18 and later
- Sync with other changes from the 2.3 kernels
4.00.04 - Rename structures/constants to be prefixed with IPS_
4.00.03 - Add alternative passthru interface
- Add ability to flash ServeRAID BIOS
4.00.02 - Fix problem with PT DCDB with no buffer
4.00.01 - Add support for First Failure Data Capture
4.00.00 - Add support for ServeRAID 4
3.60.02 - Make DCDB direction based on lookup table.
- Only allow one DCDB command to a SCSI ID at a time.
3.60.01 - Remove bogus error check in passthru routine.
3.60.00 - Bump max commands to 128 for use with ServeRAID
firmware 3.60.
- Change version to 3.60 to coincide with ServeRAID release
numbering.
1.00.00 - Initial Public Release
- Functionally equivalent to 0.99.05
0.99.05 - Fix an oops on certain passthru commands
0.99.04 - Fix race condition in the passthru mechanism
-- this required the interface to the utilities to change
- Fix error recovery code
0.99.03 - Make interrupt routine handle all completed request on the
adapter not just the first one
- Make sure passthru commands get woken up if we run out of
SCBs
- Send all of the commands on the queue at once rather than
one at a time since the card will support it.
0.99.02 - Added some additional debug statements to print out
errors if an error occurs while trying to read/write
to a logical drive (IPS_DEBUG).
- Fixed read/write errors when the adapter is using an
8K stripe size.
