* Document MTEOM.
Patches from me (ERY) to finish support for low-level loadable scsi.
It now works, and is actually useful.
* Throughout - add new argument to scsi_init_malloc that takes an
additional parameter. This is used as a priority to kmalloc,
and you can specify the GFP_DMA flag if you need DMA-able memory.
* Makefile: For source files that are loadable, always add name
to SCSI_SRCS. Fill in modules: target.
* hosts.c: Change next_host to next_scsi_host, and make global.
Print hosts after we have identified all of them. Use info()
function if present, otherwise use name field.

Do not use waiting loops - use up and down mechanism as long
as current != task[0].
* scsi.c(scan_scsis): Do not use stack variables for I/O - this
could be > 16Mb if we are loading a module at runtime (i.e. use
scsi_init_malloc to get some memory we know will be safe).
* scsi.c: Change dma freelist to be a set of pages. This allows
us to dynamically adjust the size of the list by adding more pages
to the pagelist. Fix scsi_malloc and scsi_free accordingly.
* scsi_module.c: Fix include.
* sd.c: Declare detach function. Increment/decrement module usage
count as required. Fix init functions to allow loaded devices.
Revalidate all new disks so we get the partition tables. Define
detach function.

definition for device template structure which defines the linked
scsi.c: (scan_scsis): Use linked list instead of knowledge about
existing high level device drivers.
(scsi_dev_init): Use init functions for drivers on linked list
instead of explicit list to initialize and attach devices to high
level drivers.

of high level devices attached.
sd.c, sr.c, sg.c, st.c: Adjust init/attach functions to use new

Sat Jul 9 15:01:03 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
More changes to eventually support loadable modules. Mainly
we want to use linked lists instead of arrays because it is easier
to dynamically add and remove things this way.
Quite a bit more work is needed before loadable modules are
possible (and usable) with scsi, but this is most of the grunge
* Linux 1.1.28 released.
* scsi.c, scsi.h (allocate_device, request_queueable): Change
argument from index into scsi_devices to a pointer to the
Scsi_Device struct.
* Throughout: Change all calls to allocate_device,
request_queueable to use new calling sequence.
* Throughout: Use SCpnt->device instead of
scsi_devices[SCpnt->index]. Ugh - the pointer was there all along
- much cleaner this way.
* scsi.c (scsi_init_malloc, scsi_free_malloc): New functions -
allow us to pretend that we have a working malloc when we
initialize. Use this instead of passing memory_start, memory_end
around all over the place.
* scsi.h, st.c, sr.c, sd.c, sg.c: Change *_init1 functions to use
scsi_init_malloc, remove all arguments, no return value.
* scsi.h: Remove index field from Scsi_Device and Scsi_Cmnd
* scsi.c (scsi_dev_init): Set up for scsi_init_malloc.
(scan_scsis): Get SDpnt from scsi_init_malloc, and refresh
when we discover a device. Free pointer before returning.
Change scsi_devices into a linked list.
* scsi.c (scan_scsis): Change to only scan one host.
(scsi_dev_init): Loop over all detected hosts, and scan them.
* hosts.c (scsi_init_free): Change so that number of extra bytes
is stored in struct, and we do not have to pass it each time.
* hosts.h: Change Scsi_Host_Template struct to include "next" and
"release" functions. Initialize to NULL in all low level
* hosts.c: Rename scsi_hosts to builtin_scsi_hosts, create linked
list scsi_hosts, linked together with the new "next" field.
Wed Jul 6 05:45:02 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
* Linux 1.1.25 released.
* aha152x.c: Changes from Juergen - cleanups and updates.

file_operations fields.
* st.c, st.h: Add changes from Kai Makisara, dated Jun 22.
* hosts.h: Change SG_ALL back to 0xff. Apparently soft error
in /dev/brain resulted in having this bumped up.
Change first parameter in bios_param function to be Disk * instead
of index into rscsi_disks.
* sd_ioctl.c: Pass pointer to rscsi_disks element instead of index
to array.
* sd.h: Add struct name "scsi_disk" to typedef for Scsi_Disk.
* scsi.c: Remove redundant Maxtor XT8760S from blacklist.
In scsi_reset, add printk when DEBUG defined.

* Linux 1.1.20 released.
* scsi_ioctl.c: Only pass down the actual number of characters
required to scsi_do_cmd, not the one rounded up to a even number
of sectors.
* ultrastor.c: Changes from Caleb Epstein for 24f cards. Support
larger SG lists.
* ultrastor.c: Changes from me - use scsi_register to register
host. Add some consistency checking,
Wed Jun 1 21:12:13 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
* Linux 1.1.19 released.
* scsi.h: Add new return code for reset() function:
* scsi.c: Make SCSI_RESET_PUNT the same as SCSI_RESET_WAKEUP for
* aha1542.c: If the command responsible for the reset is not
pending, return SCSI_RESET_PUNT.
* aha1740.c, buslogic.c, wd7000.c, ultrastor.c: Return
Tue May 31 19:36:01 1994 Eric Youngdale (eric@esp22)
* buslogic.c: Do not print out message about "must be Adaptec"
if we have detected a buslogic card. Print out a warning message
if we are configuring for >16Mb, since the 445S at board level
D or earlier does not work right. The "D" level board can be made
to work by flipping an undocumented switch, but this is too subtle.
Changes based upon patches in Yggdrasil distribution.
* sg.c, sg.h: Return sense data to user.
* aha1542.c, aha1740.c, buslogic.c: Do not panic if
sense buffer is wrong size.

* Linux 1.1.15 released.
Post-codefreeze thaw...
* buslogic.[c,h]: New driver from David Gentzel.
* hosts.h: Add use_clustering field to explicitly say whether
clustering should be used for devices attached to this host
adapter. The buslogic board apparently supports large SG lists,
but it is apparently faster if sd.c condenses this into a smaller
* sd.c: Use this field instead of heuristic.
* All host adapter include files: Add appropriate initializer for
use_clustering field.
* scsi.h: Add #defines for return codes for the abort and reset
functions. There are now a specific set of return codes to fully
specify all of the possible things that the low-level adapter
could do.
* scsi.c: Act based upon return codes from abort/reset functions.
* All host adapter abort/reset functions: Return new return code.
* Add code in scsi.c to help debug timeouts. Use #define
DEBUG_TIMEOUT to enable this.
* scsi.c: If the host->irq field is set, use
disable_irq/enable_irq before calling queuecommand if we
are not already in an interrupt. Reduce races, and we
can be sloppier about cli/sti in the interrupt routines now
(reduce interrupt latency).
* constants.c: Fix some things to eliminate warnings. Add some
sense descriptions that were omitted before.
* aha1542.c: Watch for SCRD from host adapter - if we see it, set
a flag. Currently we only print out the number of pending
commands that might need to be restarted.
* aha1542.c (aha1542_abort): Look for lost interrupts, OGMB still
full, and attempt to recover. Otherwise give up.
* aha1542.c (aha1542_reset): Try BUS DEVICE RESET, and then pass
DID_RESET back up to the upper level code for all commands running
on this target (even on different LUNs).

board to be set at different SCSI ids. Remove support for
reselection (did not work well). Set JUMPSTART flag in reset
* hosts.c: Support new low-level adapters. Allow for more than
one adapter of a given type.
* hosts.h: Allow for more than one adapter of a given type.
* scsi.c: Add scsi_device_types array, if NEEDS_JUMPSTART is set
after a low-level reset, start the command again. Sort blacklist,
and add Maxtor MXT-1240S, XT-4170S, NEC CDROM 84, Seagate ST157N.
* scsi.h: Add constants for tagged queueing.
* Throughout: Use constants from major.h instead of hardcoded
numbers for major numbers.
* scsi_ioctl.c: Fix bug in buffer length in ioctl_command. Use
verify_area in GET_IDLUN ioctl. Add new ioctls for
* sd.c: Only pay attention to UNIT_ATTENTION for removable disks.
Fix bug where sometimes portions of blocks would get lost
resulting in processes hanging. Add messages when we spin up a
disk, and fix a bug in the timing. Increase read-ahead for disks
that are on a scatter-gather capable host adapter.
* seagate.c: Fix so that some parameters can be set from the lilo
prompt. Supply jumpstart flag if we are resetting and need the
command restarted. Fix so that we return 1 if we detect a card
so that multiple card detection works correctly. Add yet another
signature for FD cards (950). Add another signature for ST0x.
* sg.c, sg.h: New files from Lawrence Foard for generic scsi
* sr.c: Add type casts for (void*) so that we can do pointer
arithmetic. Works with GCC without this, but it is not strictly
correct. Same bugfix as was in sd.c. Increase read-ahead a la
disk driver.
* sr_ioctl.c: Use scsi_malloc buffer instead of buffer from stack
since we cannot guarantee that the stack is < 16Mb.
ultrastor.c: Update to support 24f properly (JFC's driver).
wd7000.c: Supply jumpstart flag for reset. Do not round up
number of cylinders in biosparam function.

* Throughout: Use check_region/snarf_region for all low-level
* aha1542.c: Do hard reset instead of soft (some ethercard probes
screw us up).

Texel cdrom and Maxtor XT-4380S to blacklist. Allow compile time
option for no-multi lun scan. Add semaphore for possible problems
with handshaking, assume device is faulty until we know it not to be
the case. Add DEBUG_INIT symbol to dump info as we scan for devices.
Zero sense buffer so we can tell if we need to request it. When
examining sense information, request sense if buffer is all zero.
If RESET, request sense information to see what to do next.
* scsi_debug.c: Change some constants to use symbols like INT_MAX.
* scsi_ioctl.c (kernel_scsi_ioctl): New function -for making ioctl
calls from kernel space.
* sd.c: Increase timeout to 300. Use functions in constants.h to
display info. Use scsi_malloc buffer for READ_CAPACITY, since
we cannot guarantee that a stack based buffer is < 16Mb.
* sd_ioctl.c: Add BLKFLSBUF ioctl.
* seagate.c: Add new compile time options for ARBITRATE,
SLOW_HANDSHAKE, and SLOW_RATE. Update assembly loops for transferring
data. Use kernel_scsi_ioctl to request mode page with geometry.

restored if we retry the command. Set aside dma buffers assuming each
block is 1 page, not 1Kb minix block.
* scsi_ioctl.c: Add a few type casts. Other minor changes.
* sd.c: Correctly free all scsi_malloc'd memory if we run out of
dma_pool. Store blocksize information for each partition.

* seagate.c: Add a few new signatures for FD cards. Another patch
with SCint to fix race condition. Use recursion_depth to keep track
of how many times we have been recursively called, and do not start
another command unless we are on the outer level. Fixes bug
with Syquest cartridge drives (used to crash kernel), because
they do not disconnect with large data transfers.

(sd_init) Init blkdev_fops earlier so that sd_open is available sooner.
* sr.c: Same as above for sd.c.
* st.c: Return ENODEV instead of ENXIO if no device. Init chrdev_fops
sooner, so that it is always there even if no tapes.
