3 Older Version : 00.00.04.17.1-rc1
1. Add the Online Controller Reset (OCR) to the Driver.
OCR is the new feature for megaraid_sas driver which
will allow the fw to do the chip reset which will not
affact the OS behavious.
To add the OCR support, driver need to do:
a). reset the controller chips -- Xscale and Gen2 which
will change the function calls and add the reset function
related to this two chips.
b). during the reset, driver will store the pending cmds
which not returned by FW to driver's pending queue. Driver
will re-issue those pending cmds again to FW after the OCR
finished.
c). In driver's timeout routine, driver will report to
OS as reset. Also driver's queue routine will block the
cmds until the OCR finished.
d). in Driver's ISR routine, if driver get the FW state as
state change, FW in Failure status and FW support online controller
reset (OCR), driver will start to do the controller reset.
e). In driver's IOCTL routine, the application cmds will wait for the
OCR to finish, then issue the cmds to FW.
f). Before driver kill adapter, driver will do last chance of
OCR to see if driver can bring back the FW.
2. Add the support update flag to the driver to tell LSI megaraid_sas
application which driver will support the device update. So application
will not need to do the device update after application add/del the device
from the system.
3. In driver's timeout routine, driver will do three time reset if fw is in
failed state. Driver will kill adapter if can't bring back FW after the
this three times reset.
4. Add the input parameter max_sectors to 1MB support to our GEN2 controller.
customer can use the input paramenter max_sectors to add 1MB support to GEN2
controller.

the way it raises SIGIO.

3 Older Version : 00.00.03.16
1. Rollback the sense info implementation
Sense buffer ptr data type in the ioctl path is reverted back
to u32 * as in previous versions of driver.
2. Fixed the driver frame count.
When Driver sent wrong frame count to firmware. As this
particular command is sent to drive, FW is seeing continuous
chip resets and so the command will timeout.
3. Add the new controller(1078DE) support to the driver
and Increase the max_wait to 60 from 10 in the controller
operational status. With this max_wait increase, driver will
make sure the FW will finish the pending cmd for KDUMP case.

1. Added module parameter "poll_mode_io" to support for "polling"
(reduced interrupt operation). In this mode, IO completion
interrupts are delayed. At the end of initiating IOs, the
driver schedules for cmd completion if there are pending cmds
to be completed. A timer-based interrupt has also been added
to prevent IO completion processing from being delayed
indefinitely in the case that no new IOs are initiated.

1. Setting the max_sectors_per_req based on max SGL supported by the
FW. Prior versions calculated this value from controller info
(max_sectors_1, max_sectors_2). For certain controllers/FW,
this was resulting in a value greater than max SGL supported
by the FW. Issue was first reported by users running LUKS+XFS
with megaraid_sas. Thanks to RB for providing the logs and
duplication steps that helped to get to the root cause of the
issue. 2. Increased MFI_POLL_TIMEOUT_SECS to 60 seconds from
10. FW may take a max of 60 seconds to respond to the INIT
cmd.

1. When MegaSAS driver receives reset call from OS, driver waits in reset
routine for max 3 minutes for all pending command completion. Now driver will
call completion routine every 5 seconds from the reset routine instead of
waiting for depending on cmd completion from isr path.

change there is no need of memory manager in the driver code

It does, but the DMA API was expanded to cope with this exact case, so
use dma_alloc_coherent() directly in the megaraid code instead. The dev
is just &pci_dev->dev.
James <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>
3. SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE is not supported by FW and thus blocked by driver.
4. Hibernation support added
5. Performing diskdump while running IO in RHEL 4 was failing. Fixed.

2 Current Version : 00.00.03.08
3 Older Version : 00.00.03.07
i. Under heavy IO mid-layer prints "DRIVER_TIMEOUT" errors
Fix: The driver is now throttling IO.
Checks added in megasas_queue_command to know if FW is able to
process commands within timeout period. If number of retries
is 2 or greater,the driver stops sending cmd to FW temporarily. IO is
resumed if pending cmd count reduces to 16 or 5 seconds has elapsed
from the time cmds were last sent to FW.
ii. FW enables WCE bit in Mode Sense cmd for drives that are configured
as WriteBack. The OS may send "SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE" cmd when Logical
Disks are exposed with WCE=1. User is advised to enable Write Back
mode only when the controller has battery backup. At this time
Synhronize cache is not supported by the FW. Driver will short-cycle
the cmd and return success without sending down to FW.

1. Added new memory management module to support the IOCTL memory allocation. For IOCTL we try to allocate from the memory pool created during driver initialization. If mem pool is empty then we allocate at run time.
2. Added check in megasas_queue_command and dpc/isr routine to see if we have already declared adapter dead
(hw_crit_error=1). If hw_crit_error==1, now we donot accept any processing of pending cmds/accept any cmd from OS

it is generated by the controller.
