5	Changes from 20050323 to 20050413
6	
7		* Changed version number to 8.0.28
8		* Fixed build warning for 2.6.12-rc2 kernels: mempool_alloc now
9		  requires a function which takes an unsigned int for gfp_flags.
10		* Removed pci dma sync calls to coherent/consistent pci memory.
11		* Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>: split helpers
12		  for fabric and nport logins out of lpfc_cmpl_els_flogi.
13		* Removed sysfs attributes that are used to dump the various
14		  discovery lists.
15		* Fix for issue where not all luns are seen.  Search all lists
16		  other than unmap list in lpfc_find_target().  Otherwise INQUIRY
17		  to luns on nodes in NPR or other relevant states (PLOGI,
18		  PRLI...) are errored back and scan() terminates.
19		* Removed FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHESxxx defines.  They're in 2.6.12-rc1.
20		* Compare return value of lpfc_scsi_tgt_reset against SCSI
21		  midlayer codes SUCCESS/FAILED which that function returns rather
22		  than SLI return code.
23		* Removed extraneous calls to lpfc_sli_next_iotag which should
24		  only be called from lpfc_sli_submit_iocb.  Also make
25		  lpfc_sli_next_iotag static.
26		* Added PCI ID for LP10000-S.
27		* Changes in lpfc_abort_handler(): Return SUCCESS if we did not
28		  find command in both TX and TX completion queues.  Return ERROR
29		  if we timed out waiting for command to complete after abort was
30		  issued.
31		* Zero-out response sense length in lpfc_scsi_prep_cmnd to prevent
32		  interpretation of stale sense length when the command completes
33		  - was causing spurious 0710 messages.
34		* Moved clearing of host_scribble inside host_lock in IO
35		  completion path.
36		* Fixed a bunch of mixed tab/space indentation.
37		* Allow hex format numbers in sysfs attribute setting.  Fix
38		  application hang when invalid numbers are used in sysfs
39		  settings.
40		* Removed extra iotag allocation by lpfc_abort_handler.
41		* Clear host_scribble in the scsi_cmnd structure when failing in
42		  queuecommand.
43		* Changed logic at top of lpfc_abort_handler so that if the
44		  command's host_scibble field is NULL, return SUCCESS because the
45		  driver has already returned the command to the midlayer.
46	
47	Changes from 20050308 to 20050323
48	
49		* Changed version number to 8.0.27
50		* Changed a few lines from patch submitted by Christoph Hellwig
51		  (3/19). MAILBOX_WSIZE * (uint32_t) is replaced with an
52		  equivalent MAILBOX_CMDSIZE macro.
53		* Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (3/19): some misc patches
54		  against the latest drivers:
55		  - stop using volatile.  if you need special ordering use memory
56		    barriers but that doesn't seem to be the case here
57		  - switch lpfc_sli_pcimem_bcopy to take void * arguments.
58		  - remove typecast for constants - a U postfix marks them
59		    unsigned int in C
60		  - add a MAILBOX_CMD_SIZE macro, as most users of
61		    MAILBOX_CMD_WSIZE didn't really want the word count
62		  - kill struct lpfc_scsi_dma_buf and embedded the two members
63		    directly in struct lpfc_scsi_buf
64		  - don't call dma_sync function on allocations from
65		    pci_pool_alloc - it's only for streaming mappings (pci_map_*)
66		* Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (3/19) - nlp_failMask isn't
67		  ever used by the driver, just reported to userspace (and that in
68		  a multi-value file which is against the sysfs guidelines).
69		* Change pci_module_init to pci_register_module() with appropriate
70		  ifdefs.
71		* Added #include <linux/dma-mapping.h> as required by the DMA
72		  32bit and 64bit defines on some archs.
73		* Merged patch from Christoph Hellwig (03/19) - fix initialization
74		  order - scsi_add_host must happen last from scsi POV. Also some
75		  minor style/comment fixups.
76		* Fixed use of TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 by changing to
77		  FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2.
78	
79	Changes from 20050223 to 20050308
80	
81		* Changed version number to 8.0.26
82		* Revise TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 so that lpfc_target is removed and
83		  rport data is used instead. Removed device_queue_hash[].
84		* Changed RW attributes of scan_down, max_luns and fcp_bind_method
85		  to R only.
86		* Fixed RSCN handling during initial link initialization.
87		* Fixed issue with receiving PLOGI handling when node is on NPR
88		  list and marked for ADISC.
89		* Fixed RSCN timeout issues.
90		* Reduced severity of "SCSI layer issued abort device" message to
91		  KERN_WARNING.
92		* Feedback from Christoph Hellwig (on 2/5) - In the LPFC_EVT_SCAN
93		  case the caller already has the target ID handly, so pass that
94		  one in evt_arg1.
95		* Fix compile warning/resultant panic in
96		  lpfc_register_remote_port().
97	
98	Changes from 20050215 to 20050223
99	
100		* Changed version number to 8.0.25
101		* Add appropriate comments to lpfc_sli.c.
102		* Use DMA_64BIT_MASK and DMA_32BIT_MASK defines instead of
103		  0xffffffffffffffffULL & 0xffffffffULL respectively.  Use pci
104		  equivalents instead of dma_set_mask and also modify condition
105		  clause to actually exit on error condition.
106		* Restart els timeout handler only if txcmplq_cnt. On submission,
107		  mod_timer the els_tmofunc.  This prevents the worker thread from
108		  waking up the els_tmo handler un-necessarily.  The thread was
109		  being woken up even when there were no pending els commands.
110		* Added new typedefs for abort and reset functions.
111		* Collapsed lpfc_sli_abort_iocb_xxx into a single function.
112		* Collapsed lpfc_sli_sum_iocb_xxx into a single function.
113		* Removed TXQ from all abort and reset handlers since it is never
114		  used.
115		* Fixed Oops panic in 8.0.23 (reported on SourceForge).  The
116		  driver was not handling LPFC_IO_POLL cases correctly in
117		  fast_ring_event and was setting the tgt_reset timeout to 0 in
118		  lpfc_reset_bus_handler.  This 0 timeout would not allow the FW
119		  to timeout ABTS's on bad targets and allow the driver to have an
120		  iocb on two lists.  Also split the lpfc_sli_ringtxcmpl_get
121		  function into two routines to match the fast and slow completion
122		  semantics - ELS completions worked for the wrong reasons.  Also
123		  provided new log message number - had two 0326 entries.
124		* Removed unused #define LPFC_SCSI_INITIAL_BPL_SIZE.
125		* Removed unused struct lpfc_node_farp_pend definition.
126		* Removed unused #define LPFC_SLIM2_PAGE_AREA.
127		* Changed zeros used as pointers to NULL.
128		* Removed unneeded braces around single line in lpfc_do_work.
129		* Close humongous memory leak in lpfc_sli.c - driver was losing 13
130		  iocbq structures per LIP.
131		* Removed last of GFP_ATOMIC allocations.
132		* Locks are not taken outside of nportdisc, hbadisc, els and most
133		  of the init, sli, mbox and ct groups of functions
134		* Fix comment for lpfc_sli_iocb_cmd_type to fit within 80 columns.
135		* Replaced wait_event() with wait_event_interruptible().
136		  wait_event() puts the woker thread in an UNINTERRUPTIBLE state
137		  causing it to figure in load average calculations. Also add a
138		  BUG_ON to the ret code of wait_event_interruptible() since the
139		  premise is that the worker thread is signal-immune.
140	
141	Changes from 20050208 to 20050215
142	
143		* Changed version number to 8.0.24
144		* Fixed a memory leak of iocbq structure.  For ELS solicited iocbs
145		  sli layer now frees the response iocbs after processing it.
146		* Closed large memory leak -- we were losing 13 iocbq structures
147		  per LIP.
148		* Changing EIO and ENOMEM to -EIO and -ENOMEM respectively.
149		* Cleanup of lpfc_sli_iocb_cmd_type array and typing of iocb type.
150		* Implemented Christoph Hellwig's feedback from 02/05: Remove
151		  macros putLunHigh, putLunLow. Use lpfc_put_lun() inline instead.
152		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's feedback from 02/05: Instead of
153		  cpu_to_be32(), use swab16((uint16_t)lun). This is the same as
154		  "swab16() on LE" and "<<16 on BE".
155		* Added updates for revised FC remote port patch (dev_loss_tmo
156		  moved to rport, hostdata renamed dd_data, add fc_remote_host()
157		  on shutdown).
158		* Removed unnecessary function prototype.
159		* Added code to prevent waking up worker thread after the exit of
160		  worker thread.  Fixes panic seen with insmod/rmmod testing with
161		  70 disks.
162		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Make some
163		  variables/code static (namely lpfcAlpaArray and
164		  process_nodev_timeout()).
165		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Use
166		  switch...case instead of if...else if...else if while decoding
167		  JDEC id.
168	
169	Changes from 20050201 to 20050208
170	
171		* Changed version number to 8.0.23
172		* Make lpfc_work_done, lpfc_get_scsi_buf,
173		  lpfc_mbx_process_link_up, lpfc_mbx_issue_link_down and
174		  lpfc_sli_chipset_init static.
175		* Cleaned up references to list_head->next field in the driver.
176		* Replaced lpfc_discq_post_event with lpfc_workq_post_event.
177		* Implmented Christoph Hellwig's review from 2/5: Check for return
178		  values of kmalloc.
179		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Protecting
180		  scan_tmo and friends in !FC_TRANSPORT_PATCHES_V2 &&
181		  !USE_SCAN_TARGET.
182		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Some fixes in
183		  the evt handling area.
184		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: Remove usage of
185		  intr_inited variable. The interrupt initilization from OS side
186		  now happens in lpfc_probe_one().
187		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: remove shim
188		  lpfc_alloc_transport_attr - remove shim lpfc_alloc_shost_attrs -
189		  remove shim lpfc_scsi_host_init - allocate phba mem in scsi's
190		  hostdata readjust code so that they are no use after free's
191		  (don't use after scsi_host_put) - make lpfc_alloc_sysfs_attr
192		  return errors
193		* Fixed panic in lpfc_probe_one(). Do not delete in a list
194		  iterator that is not safe.
195		* Clean up fast lookup array of the fcp_ring when aborting iocbs.
196		* Following timeout handlers moved to the lpfc worker thread:
197		  lpfc_disc_timeout, lpfc_els_timeout, lpfc_mbox, lpfc_fdmi_tmo,
198		  lpfc_nodev_timeout, lpfc_els_retry_delay.
199		* Removed unused NLP_NS_NODE #define.
200		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch from 1/30: remove unused
201		  lpfc_hba_list; remove unused lpfc_rdrev_wd30; remove
202		  lpfc_get_brd_no and use Linux provided IDR.
203		* Changed board reset procedure so that lpfc_sli_send_reset()
204		  writes the INITFF bit and leaves lpfc_sli_brdreset() to clear
205		  the bit.
206		* Removed outfcpio sysfs device attribute.
207		* VPD changes: 1) Modify driver to use the model name and
208		  description from the VPD data if it exists 2) Rework use of DUMP
209		  mailbox command to support HBAs with 256 bytes of SLIM.
210		* Fixed compile error for implicit definition of struct
211		  scsi_target
212	
213	Changes from 20050124 to 20050201
214	
215		* Changed version number to 8.0.22
216		* Moved discovery timeout handler to worker thread. There are
217		  function calls in this function which are not safe to call from
218		  HW interrupt context.
219		* Removed free_irq from the error path of HBA initialization.
220		  This will fix the free of uninitialised IRQ when config_port
221		  fails.
222		* Make sure function which processes unsolicited IOCBs on ELS ring
223		  still is called with the lock held.
224		* Clear LA bit from work_ha when we are not supposed to handle LA.
225		* Fix double locking bug in the error handling part of
226		  lpfc_mbx_cmpl_read_la.
227		* Implemented fast IOCB processing for FCP ring.
228		* Since mboxes are now unconditionally allocated outside of the
229		  lock, free them in cases where they are not used.
230		* Moved out a couple of GFP_ATOMICs in lpfc_disc_timeout, to
231		  before locks so that they can GFP_KERNEL instead. Also cleaned
232		  up code.
233		* Collapsed interrupt handling code into one function.
234		* Removed event posting and handling of solicited and unsolicited
235		  iocbs.
236		* Remove ELS ring handling leftovers from the lpfc_sli_inter().
237		* ELS ring (any slow ring) moved from the lpfc_sli_inter() into a
238		  worker thread.  Link Attention, Mbox Attention, and Error
239		  Attention, as well as slow rings' attention is passed to the
240		  worker thread via worker thread copy of Host Attention
241		  register. Corresponding events are removed from the event queue
242		  handling.
243		* Add entries to hba structure to delegate some functionality from
244		  the lpfc_sli_inter() to a worker thread.
245		* Reduced used of GFP_ATOMIC for memory allocations.
246		* Moved locks deeper in order to change GFP_ATOMIC to GFP_KERNEL.
247		* IOCB initialization fix for Raw IO.
248		* Removed qcmdcnt, iodonecnt, errcnt from lpfc_target and from
249		  driver.
250		* Added call to lpfc_els_abort in lpfc_free_node.  Modified
251		  lpfc_els_abort to reset txq and txcmplq iterator after a
252		  iocb_cmpl call.
253		* Fixed a use after free issue in lpfc_init.c.
254		* Defined default mailbox completion routine and removed code in
255		  the sli layer which checks the mbox_cmpl == 0 to free mail box
256		  resources.
257		* In lpfc_workq_post_event, clean up comment formatting and remove
258		  unneeded cast of kmalloc's return.
259		* Removed loop which calls fc_remote_port_unblock and
260		  fc_remote_port_delete for every target as this same effect is
261		  accomplished by the scsi_remove_host call.
262		* Minor cleanup of header files.  Stop header files including
263		  other header files.  Removed sentinels which hide multiple
264		  inclusions.  Removed unneeded #include directives.
265		* Fixed memory leaks in mailbox error paths.
266		* Moved lock from around of lpfc_work_done to lpfc_work_done
267		  itself.
268		* Removed typedef for LPFC_WORK_EVT_t and left just struct
269		  lpfc_work_evt to comply with linux_scsi review coding style.
270		* Fixed some trailing whitespaces, spaces used for indentation and
271		  ill-formatting multiline comments.
272		* Bug fix for Raw IO errors.  Reuse of IOCBs now mandates setting
273		  of ulpPU and fcpi_parm to avoid incorrect read check of Write IO
274		  and incorrect read length.
275	
276	Changes from 20050110 to 20050124
277	
278		* Changed version number to 8.0.21
279		* Removed unpleasant casting in the definition and use of
280		  lpfc_disc_action function pointer array.
281		* Makefile cleanup.  Use ?= operator for setting default
282		  KERNELVERSION and BASEINCLUDE values.  Use $(PWD) consistently.
283		* Removed call to lpfc_sli_intr from lpfc_config_port_post.  All
284		  Linux systems will service hardware interrupts while bringing up
285		  the driver.
286		* Christoph Hellwig change request: Reorg of contents of
287		  lpfc_hbadisc.c, lpfc_scsi.h, lpfc_init.c, lpfc_sli.c,
288		  lpfc_attr.c, lpfc_scsi.c.
289		* Renamed discovery thread to lpfc_worker thread.  Moved handling
290		  of error attention and link attention and mbox event handler to
291		  lpfc_worker thread.
292		* Removed .proc_info and .proc_name from the driver template and
293		  associated code.
294		* Removed check of FC_UNLOADING flag in lpfc_queuecommand to
295		  determine what result to return.
296		* Move modification of FC_UNLOADING flag under host_lock.
297		* Fix IOERR_RCV_BUFFER_WAITING handling for CT and ELS subsystem.
298		* Workaround firmware bug for IOERR_RCV_BUFFER_WAITING on ELS
299		  ring.
300		* Fixed a couple lpfc_post_buffer problems in lpfc_init.c.
301		* Add missing spaces to the parameter descriptions for
302		  lpfc_cr_delay, lpfc_cr_count and lpfc_discovery_threads.
303		* Lock before calling lpfc_sli_hba_down().
304		* Fix leak of "host" in the error path in the remove_one() path.
305		* Fix comment for lpfc_cr_count.  It defaults to 1.
306		* Fix issue where we are calling lpfc_disc_done() recursively from
307		  lpfc_linkdown(), but list_for_each_entry_safe() is not safe for
308		  such use.
309		* Bump lpfc_discovery_threads (count of outstading ELS commands in
310		  discovery) to 32
311		* If the SCSI midlayer tries to recover from an error on a lun
312		  while the corresponding target is in the NPR state, lpfc driver
313		  will reject all the resets. This will cause the target to be
314		  moved to offline state and block all the I/Os. The fix for this
315		  is to delay the lun reset to a target which is not in MAPPED
316		  state until the target is rediscovered or nodev timeout is
317		  fired.
318	
319	Changes from 20041229 to 20050110
320	
321		* Changed version number to 8.0.20
322		* rport fix: use new fc_remote_port_rolechg() function instead of
323		  direct structure change
324		* rport fix: last null pointer check
325		* Phase II of GFP_ATOMIC effort.  Replaced iocb_mem_pool and
326		  scsibuf_mem_pool with kmalloc and linked list.  Inserted list
327		  operations for mempool_alloc calls.  General code cleanup.  All
328		  abort and reset routines converted.  Handle_ring_event
329		  converted.
330		* If the mbox_cmpl == lpfc_sli_wake_mbox_wait in
331		  lpfc_sli_handle_mb_event, pmb->context1 points to a waitq. Do
332		  not free the structure.
333		* rport fixes: fix for rmmod crash
334		* rport fixes: when receiving PRLI's, set node/rport role values
335		* rport fixes: fix for unload and for fabric port deletes
336		* VPD info bug fix.
337		* lpfc_linkdown() should be able to process all outstanding events
338		  by calling lpfc_disc_done() even if it is called from
339		  lpfc_disc_done() Moving all events from phba->dpc_disc to local
340		  local_dpc_disc prevents those events from being processed.
341		  Removing that queue. From now on we should not see "Illegal
342		  State Transition" messages.
343		* Release host lock and enable interrupts when calling
344		  del_timer_sync()
345		* All related to rports: Clean up issues with rport deletion
346		  Convert to using block/unblock on list remove (was del/add)
347		  Moved rport delete to freenode - so rport tracks node.
348		* rport fixes: for fport, get maxframe and class support
349		  information
350		* Added use of wait_event to work with kthread interface.
351		* Ensure that scsi_transport_fc.h is always pulled in by
352		  lpfc_scsiport.c
353		* In remote port changes: no longer nulling target->pnode when
354		  removing from mapped list. Pnode get nulled when the node is
355		  freed (after nodev tmo). This bug was causing i/o received in
356		  the small window while the device was blocked to be errored w/
357		  did_no_connect. With the fix, it returns host_busy
358		  (per the pre-remote port changes).
359		* Merge in support for fc transport remote port use. This removes
360		  any consistent bindings within the driver. All scanning is now
361		  on a per-target basis driven by the discovery engine.
362	
363	Changes from 20041220 to 20041229
364	
365		* Changed version number to 8.0.19
366		* Fixed bug for handling RSCN type 3.  Terminate RSCN mode
367		  properly after ADISC handling completes.
368		* Add list_remove_head macro.  Macro cleans up memory allocation
369		  list handling.  Also clean up lpfc_reset_bus_handler - routine
370		  does not need to allocate its own scsi_cmnd and scsi_device
371		  structures.
372		* Fixed potential discovery bug, nlp list corrutpion fix potential
373		  memory leak
374		* Part 1 of the memory allocation rework request by linux-scsi.
375		  This effort fixes the number of bdes per scsi_buf to 64, makes
376		  the scatter-gather count a module parameter, builds a linked
377		  list of scsi_bufs, and removes all dependencies on lpfc_mem.h.
378		* Reverted lpfc_do_dpc, probe_one, remove_one to original
379		  implementation.  Too many problems (driver not completing
380		  initial discovery, and IO not starting to disks).  Backs out
381		  kthread patch.
382		* Fix race condition in lpfc_do_dpc.  If wake_up interrupt occurs
383		  while lpfc_do_dpc is running disc_done and the dpc list is
384		  empty, the latest insertion is missed and the schedule_timeout
385		  does not wakeup.  The sleep interval is MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT
386		  defined as ~0UL >> 1, a very large number.  Hacked it to 5*HZ
387		  for now.
388		* Fixed bug introduced when discovery thread implementation was
389		  moved to kthread. kthread_stop() is not able to wake up thread
390		  waiting on a semaphore and "modprobe -r lpfc" is not always
391		  (most of the times) able to complete. Fix is in not using
392		  semaphore for the interruptable sleep.
393		* Small Makefile cleanup - Remove remnants of 2.4 vs. 2.6
394		  determination.
395	
396	Changes from 20041213 to 20041220
397	
398		* Changed version number to 8.0.18
399		* Janitorial cleanup after removal of sliinit and ringinit[] ring
400		  statistic is owned by the ring and SLI stats are in sli
401		  structure.
402		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Kill
403		  compile warnings on 64 bit platforms: %variables for %llx format
404		  specifiers must be caste to long long because %(u)int64_t can
405		  just be long on 64bit platforms.
406		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Removes
407		  dead code.
408		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>: use
409		  kthread interface.
410		* Print LPFC_MODULE_DESC banner in module init routine.
411		* Removed sliinit structure and ringinit[] array.
412		* Changed log message number from 324 to 326 in lpfc_sli.c.
413		* Wait longer for commands to complete in lpfc_reset_bus_handler
414		  and lpfc_reset_bus_handler.  Also use schedule_timeout() instead
415		  of msleep() and add error message in lpfc_abort_handler()
416		* When setting lpfc_nodev_tmo, from dev_loss set routine, make 1
417		  sec minimum value.
418		* Functions which assume lock being held were called without lock
419		  and kernel complained about unlocking lock which is not locked.
420		* Added code in linkdown to unreg if we know login session will be
421		  terminated.
422		* Removed automap config parameter and fixed up use_adisc logic to
423		  include FCP2 devices.
424	
425	Changes from 20041207 to 20041213
426	
427		* Changed version number to 8.0.17
428		* Fix sparse warnings by adding __iomem markers to lpfc_compat.h.
429		* Fix some sparse warnings -- 0 used as NULL pointer.
430		* Make sure there's a space between every if and it's (.
431		* Fix some overly long lines and make sure hard tabs are used for
432		  indentation.
433		* Remove all trailing whitespace.
434		* Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: if
435		  pci_module_init fails we need to release the transport template.
436	 	  (also don't print the driver name at startup, linux drivers can
437		  be loaded without hardware present, and noise in the log for
438		  that case is considered unpolite, better print messages only for
439		  hardware actually found).
440		* Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: Add missing
441		  __iomem annotations, remove broken casts, mark functions static.
442		  Only major changes is chaning of some offsets from word-based to
443		  byte-based so we cans simply do void pointer arithmetics (gcc
444		  extension) instead of casting to uint32_t.
445		* Integrate Christoph Hellwig's patch for 8.0.14: flag is always
446		  LPFC_SLI_ABORT_IMED, aka 0 - remove dead code.
447		* Modified preprocessor #ifdef, #if, #ifndef to reflect upstream
448		  kernel submission.  Clean build with make clean;make and make
449		  clean;make ADVANCED=1 on SMP x86, 2.6.10-rc2 on RHEL 4 Beta
450		  1. IO with a few lips and a long cable pull behaved accordingly.
451		* Implement full VPD support.
452		* Abort handler will try to wait for abort completion before
453		  returning.  Fixes some panics in iocb completion code path.
454	
455	Changes from 20041130 to 20041207
456		
457		* Changed version number to 8.0.16
458		* Hung dt session fix.  When the midlayer calls to abort a scsi
459		  command, make sure the driver does not complete post-abort
460		  handler.  Just NULL the iocb_cmpl callback handler and let SLI
461		  take over.
462		* Add Read check that uses SLI option to validate all READ data
463		  actually received.
464	
465	
466	Changes from 20041123 to 20041130
467	
468		* Changed version number to 8.0.15
469		* Ifdef'd unused "binary" attributes by DFC_DEBUG for clean
470		  compiles
471		* Stop DID_ERROR from showing up along with QUEUE_FULL set by the
472		  Clarion array (SCSI error ret. val.  0x70028) There is no need
473		  for driver to hard fail command which was failed by the target
474		  device.
475		* Fix for Scsi device scan bug reported on SourceForge.  Driver
476		  was returning a DID_ERROR in lpfc_handle_fcp_error causing
477		  midlayer to mark report luns as failing even though it
478		  succeeded.
479		* Don't ignore SCSI status on underrun conditions for inquiries,
480		  test unit ready's, etc.  This was causing us to lose
481		  reservation conflicts, etc
482	
483	Changes from 20041018 to 20041123
484		
485		* Changed version number to 8.0.14
486		* Added new function "iterator" lpfc_sli_next_iocb_slot() which
487		  returns pointer to iocb entry at cmdidx if queue is not full.
488		  It also updates next_cmdidx, and local_getidx (but not cmdidx)
489		* lpfc_sli_submit_iocb() copies next_cmdidx into cmdidx. Now it is
490		  the only place were we are updating cmdidx.
491		* lpfc_sli_update_ring() is split in to two --
492		  lpfc_sli_update_ring() and lpfc_sli_update_full_ring().
493		* lpfc_sli_update_ring() don't to read back correct value of
494		  cmdidx.
495		* Simplified lpfc_sli_resume_iocb() and its use.
496		* New static function lpfc_sli_next_iocb(phba, pring, &piocb) to
497		  iterate through commands in the TX queue and new command (at the
498		  end).
499		* Reduced max_lun to 256 (due to issues reported to some arrays).
500		  Fixed comment, and macro values so def=256, min=1, max=32768.
501		* Fix an obvious typo/bug: kfree was used to free lpfc_scsi_buf
502		  instead of mempool_free in lpfc_scsiport.c.
503		* Suppress nodev_tmo message for FABRIC nodes.
504		* Fixed some usage of plain integer as NULL pointer.
505		* Bug fix for FLOGI cmpl, lpfc_els_chk_latt error path code
506		  cleanup.
507		* Fixup lpfc_els_chk_latt() to have Fabric NPorts go thru
508		  discovery state machine as well.
509		* Fixes to lpfc_els_chk_latt().
510		* Use DID not SCSI target id as a port_id and add some missing
511		  locks in lpfc_fcp.c.
512		* Changed eh_abort_handler to return FAILED if command is not
513		  found in driver.
514		* Fix crash: paging request at virtual address 0000000000100108 -
515		  a result of removing from the txcmpl list item which was already
516		  removed (100100 is a LIST_POISON1 value from the next pointer
517		  and 8 is an offset of the "prev") Driver runs out of iotags and
518		  does not handle that case well. The root of the proble is in the
519		  initialization code in lpfc_sli.c
520		* Changes to work with proposed linux kernel patch to support
521		  hotplug.
522		* Zero out seg_cnt in prep_io failure path to prevent double sg
523		  unmap calls.
524		* Fix setting of upper 32 bits for Host Group Ring Pointers if in
525		  SLIM. Old code was inappropriately masking off low order bits.
526		* Use scsi_[activate|deactivate]_tcq calls provided in scsi_tcq.h.
527		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@lst.de): don't call
528		  pci_dma_sync_* on coherent memory. pci_dma_sync_* is need and
529		  must be used only with streaming dma mappings pci_map_*, not
530		  coherent mappings.  Note: There are more consistent mappings
531		  that are using pci_dma_sync calls. Probably these should be
532		  removed as well.
533		* Modified lpfc_free_scsi_buf to accommodate all three scsi_buf
534		  free types to alleviate miscellaneous panics with cable pull
535		  testing.
536		* Set hotplug to default 0 and lpfc_target_remove to not remove
537		  devices unless hotplug is enabled.
538		* Fixed discovery bug: plogi cmpl uses ndlp after its freed.
539		* Fixed discovery bug: rnid acc cmpl, can potentially use ndlp
540		  after its freed.
541		* Modularize code path in lpfc_target_remove().
542		* Changes to support SCSI hotplug (ifdef'ed out because they need
543		  kernel support USE_SCAN_TARGET requires kernel support to export
544		  the interface to scsi_scan_target and to move the SCAN_WILD_CARD
545		  define to a general scsi header file.  USE_RESCAN_HOST requires
546		  kernel support to export an interface to scan_scsi_host() with
547		  the rescan flag turned on).
548		* Removed redundant variable declaration of lpfc_linkdown_tmo.
549		* Fix for large port count remove test.
550		* Added check to see if BAR1 register is valid before using BAR1
551		  register for programming config_port mail box command.
552		* Added lpfc_scsi_hotplug to enable/disable driver support of SCSI
553		  hotplug.
554		* Changed lpfc_disc_neverdev() to lpfc_disc_illegal() and changed
555		  lpfc_disc_nodev() to lpfc_disc_noop().  Adjusted appropriate
556		  events to use these routines.
557		* Add support for SCSI device hotplug.
558		* Take dummy lpfc_target's into account for lpfc_slave_destroy().
559		* Bug fix to store WWPN / WWNN in NameServer / FDMI lpfc_nodelist
560		  entries.
561		* Added slavecnt in lpfc_target for diagnostic purposes.
562		* Added lpfc_hba load/unload flags to take care of special cases
563		  for add/remove device.
564		* Have target add/remove delay before scanning.
565		* Have rmmod path cleanup blocked devices before scsi_remove_host.
566		* Added a #define for msleep for 2.6.5 kernels.
567		* In reset bus handler if memory allocation fails, return FAILED
568		  and not SUCCESS.
569		* Have lpfc eh handlers, bus_reset and lun_reset, wait for all
570		  associated I/Os to complete before returning.
571		* Fix memset byte count in lpfc_hba_init so that
572		  LP1050 would initialize correctly.
573		* Backround nodev_timeout processing to DPC This enables us to
574		  unblock (stop dev_loss_tmo) when appopriate.
575		* Fix array discovery with multiple luns.  The max_luns was 0 at
576		  the time the host structure was initialized.  lpfc_cfg_params
577		  then set the max_luns to the correct value afterwards.
578		* Remove unused define LPFC_MAX_LUN and set the default value of
579		  lpfc_max_lun parameter to 512.
580		* Reduced stack usage of lpfc_hba_init.
581		* Cleaned up the following warning generated by
582		  scripts/checkincludes.pl lpfc_fcp.c: scsi/scsi_cmnd.h is
583		  included more than once.
584		* Replaced "set_current_state(TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE);
585		  schedule_timeout(timeout)" with "msleep(timeout)".
586		* Fixnode was losing starget when rediscovered. We saw messages
587		  like: lpfc 0000:04:02.0: 0:0263 Cannot block scsi target as a
588		  result.  Moved starget field into struct lpfc_target which is
589		  referenced from the node.
590		* Add additional SLI layer logging in lpfc_sli.c.
591		* Ignore more unexpected completions in lpfc_nportdisc.c.
592		* Can not call lpfc_target_unblock from the soft interrupt
593		  context.  It seems to be not nessasery to unblock target from
594		  nodev timeout.
595		* Introduce and use less lethal event handler for unexpected
596		  events in lpfc_nportdisc.c.
597		* Can not call fc_target_(un)block() functions with interrupts
598		  disabled in lpfc_scsiport.c.
599		* Added new configuration parameter, lpfc_max_luns range 1-32768,
600		  default 32768.
601		* Allow lpfc_fcp.c to call lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name().
602		* Increase nodev timeout from 20 seconds to 30 seconds.
603		* Replace some kfree((void*)ptr) with kfree(ptr).
604		* Make 3 functions static: lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name,
605		  lpfc_intr_prep and lpfc_setup_slim_access.  Move lpfc_intr_prep
606		  and lpfc_setup_slim_access so they're defined before being used.
607		* Remove an unnecessary list_del() in lpfc_hbadisc.c.
608		* Set nlp_state before calling lpfc_nlp_list() since this will
609		  potentially call fc_target_unblock which may cause a race in
610		  queuecommand by releasing host_lock.
611		* Since lpfc_nodev_tmo < dev_loss_tmo remove queuecommand
612		  DID_BAD_TARGET return for now.
613		* Fix a problem with rcv logo.
614		* Remove unused portstatistics_t structure.
615		* Remove #if 0 and unnecessary checks in lpfc_fcp.c.
616		* Simplify lpfc_issue_lip: Extra layer of protection removed.
617		* Grab lock before calling lpfc_sli_issue_mbox(phba, pmb,
618		  MBX_NOWAIT) in lpfc_sli_issue_mbox_wait().
619	
620	Changes from 20040920 to 20041018
621	
622		* Changed version number to 8.0.13
623		* Hide some attributes using #ifndef DFC_DEBUG ... #endif.
624		* Modify Makefile to (1) make BUILD_NO_DEBUG=1 will hide some
625		  (binary) attributes (2) make BUILD_FC_TRANS=0 will build driver
626		  for 2.6.5 kernel with block/unblock patch.
627		* Modified #ifdef names.
628		* Added support for proposed FC transport host attributes (which
629		  replaces some of the attributes we had local to the driver).
630		  Removed the binary statistics sysfs attribute.
631		* Added extra ELS verbose logging for ELS responses.
632		* Added recognition for BUILD_FC_TRANS=2 to Makefile to define
633		  FC_TRANS_VER2.
634		* Add a pointer for link stats allocation.
635		* Exported lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name for use by FC_TRANS_VER2
636		  sysfs routines.
637		* Fix discovery problem in lip testing: if device sends an ELS cmd
638		  (i.e. LOGO) before our FLOGI completes it should be LS_RJT'ed.
639		* Moved #defines around to provide target_add/remove for upstream
640		  kernel deliverables only not SLES9.  Provided ifdefs to #include
641		  target_block/unblock only if FC_TRANS_VER1.
642		* Add sanity check in lpfc_nlp_list move setting nlp_Target
643		  outside #ifdef.
644		* Added a blocked member to the lpfc_target structure for
645		  block/unblock.  This member allows the driver to know when to
646		  unblock for pci_remove_one or pci_add_one.  #ifdef'd some more
647		  block/unblock stuff and removed some defensive checks from
648		  target_block/unblock.
649		* Moved + 5 second window to dev_loss_tmo setting and updated
650		  comments.
651		* Removed NULL target check from target_block/unblock and fixed up
652		  a few comments.
653		* Enable sysfs attributes on 2.6.5 kernels and remove extra
654		  compatibility code.
655		* Remove any and all trailing whitespace.
656		* Added message 0718 and return error when dma_map_single fails.
657		* Changed the fcpCntl2 commands to include an FCP_ prefix to get
658		  rid of build warnings on later 2.6.9-rc kernels.  Build
659		  conflicts with scsi/scsi.h.  Remove inclusions of scsi/scsi.h
660		  from hbadisc.c, sli.c, and fcp.c since these modules had no
661		  dependencies on scsi.h.
662		* Fixed a bug with RSCN handling. A RSCN received on one device,
663		  shouldn't affect other devices not referenced by the RSCN.
664		* Moved #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,6) to include
665		  lpfc_jedec_to_ascii to prevent warning in SLES 9.
666		* Update Makefile to account for SLES 9 and scsi-target upstream
667		  kernel.
668		* This checkin provides block/unblock hooks for the upstream scsi
669		  target kernel and 2.6.5 on SLES9 SP1 with the block/unblock
670		  patch.
671		* Discovery changes regarding setting targetp->pnode and
672		  ndlp->nlp_Target Ensure fc_target_* routines are called properly
673		  from discovery.  Remove list_del's from lpfc_cleanup().  Ensure
674		  all the lpfc_consistent_bind_* routines don't set any driver
675		  structure objects.
676		* Fix for timeout of READ_LA or READ_SPARAM mailbox command
677		  causing panic.
678		* Cleanup list_del()'s for Discovery ndlp lists.
679		* Bug fixes for some insmod/rmmod crashes, link down crashes and
680		  device loss crashes.
681		* Removed NLP_SEARCH_DEQUE.
682		* Call lpfc_target_unblock only if the targetp is nonNull and with
683		  the host_lock held.
684		* Added qcmdcnt back along with misc bug fixes to discovery.
685		* Changed tgt_io to outfcpio lpfc_fcp.c.
686		* Fixed errors caused by LIP and cable pulls both with and without
687		  block/unblock patch.
688		* For now we have to call fc_target_unblock and fc_target_block
689		  with interrupts enabled.
690		* Save seg_cnt from dma_map_sg.  Save scatter-gather start address
691		  and pass back to dma_unmap_sg in error with seg_cnt.
692		* Incorporating block/unblock calls into driver with ifdefs.  This
693		  change is supported by scsi-target-2.6 kernel and forward only.
694		* Merged in some discovery bug fixes and added tgt io counters.
695		* Added sysfs attributes/interfaces: read only attribute
696		  "management_version" and write only attribute "issue_lip".
697		* Fix build on big endian machines: while #if was OK with
698		  __BIG_ENDIAN which defined as 4321, __BIG_ENDIAN_BITFIELD has to
699		  be tested with #ifdef because it does not have any value, it is
700		  either defined or not.
701		* Add fabric_name and port_type attributes.
702		* Change mdelay to msleep.  mdelay works, but wastefully uses cpu
703		  resources without a lock held. Revert to msleep.  Tested with
704		  sg_reset for bus and three attached targets.
705		* Added the customary #ifndef...#define...#endif to
706		  lpfc_version.h.
707		* Integrate patches from Christoph Hellwig: two new helpers common
708		  to lpfc_sli_resume_iocb and lpfc_sli_issue_iocb - singificant
709		  cleanup of those two functions - the unused SLI_IOCB_USE_TXQ is
710		  gone - lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait loses its flags argument
711		  totally.
712		* Fix in lpfc_sli.c: we can not store a 5 bit value in a 4-bit
713		  field.
714		* Moved some routines out of lpfc_fcp.c into more appropriate
715		  files.
716		* Whitespace cleanup: remove all trailing whitespace.
717		* Make lpfc_disc_ndlp_show static to lpfc_fcp.c.
718		* Remove leftover printk and replace some with
719		  printk(KERN_WARNING)
720		* Trivial: fix a few long lines and a soft tab.
721		* Remove warnings generated by Sparse against driver (make
722		  C=1). Mostly these are "using integer as pointer warnings"
723		  i.e. use NULL instead of 0.
724		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Quite a lot of changes
725		  here, the most notable is that the phba->slim2p lpfc_dmabuf goes
726		  away in favour of a typede pointer and a dma_addr_t.  Due to the
727		  typed pointer lots of the cast mess can go away, and while at it
728		  I also replaced the messy SLI2_SLIM_t with a simple struct
729		  lpfc2_sli2_slim that only contains the part of the union we care
730		  about while using SLI2_SLIM_SIZE for all size calculations
731		  directly.
732		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: This streamlines the
733		  I/O completion path a little more, especially taking care of
734		  fast-pathing the non-error case.  Also removes tons of dead
735		  members and defines from lpfc_scsi.h - e.g. lpfc_target is down
736		  to nothing more than the lpfc_nodelist pointer.
737		* Added binary sysfs file to issue mbox commands
738		* Replaced #if __BIG_ENDIAN with #if __BIG_ENDIAN_BITFIELD for
739		  compatibility with the user space applications.
740		* Decrease the amount of data in proc_info.
741		* Condense nodelist flag members.
742		* Expand INFO for discovery sysfs shost entries.
743		* Notify user if information exceeds 4k sysfs limit.
744		* Removed a bunch of unused #defines.
745		* Added initial sysfs discovery shost attributes.
746		* Remove unused #defines lpfc_disc.h.
747		* Fixed failMask nodelist settings.
748		* Cleanup some old comments / unused variables.
749		* Add LP101 to list of recognized adapters.
750	
751	Changes from 20040908 to 20040920
752	
753		* Changed version number to 8.0.12
754		* Removed used #defines: DEFAULT_PCI_LATENCY_CLOCKS and
755		  PCI_LATENCY_VALUE from lpfc_hw.h.
756		* Changes to accommodate rnid.
757		* Fix RSCN handling so RSCN NS queries only effect NPorts found in
758		  RSCN data.
759		* If we rcv a plogi on a NPort queued up for discovery, clear the
760		  NLP_NPR_2B_DISC bit since rcv plogi logic will force NPort thru
761		  discovery.
762		* Ensure lpfc_target is also cleaned up in lpfc_cleanup().
763		* Preliminary changes for block/unblock kernel API extensions in
764		  progress with linux-scsi list.  These are name changes and
765		  prototype changes only.
766		* Added send_abts flag to lpfc_els_abort. For rcv LOGO when ADISC
767		  sent, the XRI of the LOGO rcv'ed is the same as the ADISC
768		  sent. Thus we cannot ABTS the ADISC before sending the LOGO ACC.
769		* Weed out some unused fc_flags.  Add FC_DISC_TMO.
770		* board_online sysfs attribute added to support libdfc functions
771		  InitDiagEnv and SetBrdEnv.
772		* Streamline code in lpfc_els_retry fixup abort case in
773		  lpfc_els_timeout_handler().
774		* Flush discovery/ELS events when we bring SLI layer down.
775		* ctlreg and slimem binary attributes added to support libdfc
776		  read/write mem/ctl functions.
777		* Integrated Christoph Hellwig's patch: Cleanup
778		  lpfc_sli_ringpostbuf_get.
779		* Modified lpfc_slave_alloc and lpfc_slave_destroy to allocate and
780		  free a dummy target pointer.  This allows queuecommand to skip
781		  the NULL target pointer check and avoid the console spam when
782		  slave_alloc fails.
783		* Fix cfg_scan_down logic, it was reversed.
784		* Init list head ctrspbuflist.
785		* Change name of lpfc_driver_abort to lpfc_els_abort since it is
786		  only valid for ELS ring.
787		* Remove unused third argument for lpfc_consistent_bind_get().
788		* Fix up iotag fields in lpfc_prep_els_iocb().
789		* Remove log message on code path triggered by lpfc_els_abort().
790		* Set host->unique_id in lpfc_fcp.c.
791		* Removed deadwood: lpfc_target.pHba not necessary anymore.
792		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: remove dead
793		  SLI_IOCB_POLL handling.
794		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Streamline I/O
795		  submission and completion path a little.
796		* Remove unnecessary lpfc_brd_no.  Ensure brd_no assignment is
797		  unique.
798		* Removed unused MAX_FCP_LUN.
799		* Use mod_timer instead of add_timer for fdmi in lpfc_ct.c.
800		* Fixed misc discovery problems.
801		* Move stopping timers till just before lpfc_mem_free() call.
802		* Fix up NameServer reglogin error path.
803		* Cleanup possible outstanding discovery timers on rmmod.
804		* Fix discovery NPort to NPort pt2pt problem.
805		* Get rid of ip_tmofunc / scsi_tmofunc.
806		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig:
807		  lpfc_disc_done/lpfc_do_dpc cleanup - lpfc_disc_done can return
808		  void - move lpfc_do_dpc and lpfc_disc_done to lpfc_hbadisc.c -
809		  remove checking of list emptiness before calling lpfc_disc_done,
810		  it handles the empty list case just fine and the additional
811		  instructions cost less then the bustlocked spinlock operations.
812		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: This adds a new 64bit
813		  counter instead, brd_no isn't reused anymore.  Also some tiny
814		  whitespace cleanups in surrounding code.
815		* Reorder functions in lpfc_els.c to remove need for prototypes.
816		* Removed unused prototypes from lpfc_crtn.h -
817		  lpfc_ip_timeout_handler, lpfc_read_pci and lpfc_revoke.
818		* Removed some unused prototypes from lpfc_crtn.h -
819		  lpfc_scsi_hba_reset, lpfc_scsi_issue_inqsn,
820		  lpfc_scsi_issue_inqp0, lpfc_scsi_timeout_handler.
821		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: remove TRUE/FALSE
822		  usage.
823		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig: Remove unused function
824		  prototypes lpfc_set_pkt_len and lpfc_get_pkt_data from
825		  lpfc_crtn.h - fixes build warnings.
826		* Removed unused struct lpfc_dmabufip definition from lpfc_mem.h.
827		* Removed pre-2.6.5 MODULE_VERSION macro from lpfc_compat.h.
828		* Fixing missing static and removing dead code.
829		* Adding nodewwn, portwwn and portfcid shost attributes.
830		* Initial support for CT via sysfs. request payloads of size less
831		  than PAGE_SIZE and rsp payloads of size PAGE_SIZE are supported.
832		  Driver maintains a list of rsp's and passes back rsp's
833		  corresponding to the pid of the calling process.
834		* Support for RefreshInformation, GetAdapterAttributes,
835		  GetPortStatistics.
836		* Make nodev-tmo default to 20 seconds.
837		* Fix up some DSM error cases, unreg_login rpi where needed.
838		* Fix up comments for fc_target_block / fc_target_unblock.
839		* Fix up code for scsi_block_requests / scsi_unblock_requests.
840		* Add NLP_FCP_TARGET for nodeinfo support.
841		* Move suspend/resume in lpfc_nlp_list under appropriate case -
842		  Used host_lock for DPC to avoid race (remove dpc_lock)
843		* Fix some corner cases for PLOGI receive - simplify error case
844		  for cmpl_reglogin_reglogin_issue.
845		* Bug fix for ppc64 EEH MMIO panic - always do readl after
846		  writel's of HBA registers to force flush.
847		* Get rid of initial static routine declarations in lpfc_hbadisc.c
848		  and lpfc_els.c.
849		* Updates to discovery processing.
850	
851	Changes from 20040823 to 20040908
852	
853		* Changed version number to 8.0.11
854		* Removed persistent binding code.
855		* Display both ASC and ASCQ info.
856		* Fixed link down->up transitions when linkdown tmo expires. Fix
857		  was in the defensive error checking at the start of
858		  queuecommand.
859		* Removed lpfc_scsi_timeout_handler as this timer is no longer
860		  required.  The midlayer will exhaust retries and then call
861		  lpfc_abort_handler, lpfc_reset_lun_handler, and
862		  lpfc_reset_target_handler.
863		* Minimal support for SCSI flat space addressing/volume set
864		  addressing.  Use 16 bits of LUN address so that flat
865		  addressing/VSA will work.
866		* Changed 2 occurrences of if( 1 != f(x)) to if(f(x) != 1)
867		* Drop include of lpfc_cfgparm.h.
868		* Reduce stack usage of lpfc_fdmi_cmd in lpfc_ct.c.
869		* Add minimum range checking property to /sys write/store
870		  functions.
871		* Fix display of node_name and port_name via fc transport
872		  attr.
873		* Removed biosparam code.
874		* Removed range checking. phba->config[] array elements are now
875		  embedded into the hba struct. lpfc_config_setup() has been
876		  removed.
877		* Collapsed lpfc_scsi_cmd_start into lpfc_queuecommand and cleaned
878		  up combined routines.
879		* Removed unused prototypes myprint and
880		  lpfc_sched_service_high_priority_queue.
881		* Removed unused function lpfc_nodev.
882		* Removed scsi_cmnd->timeout_per_command cancelation. SCSI midlayer
883		  now times out all commands - FW is instructed to not timeout.
884		* Removed polling code from lpfc_scsi_cmd_start. Reorganized
885		  queuecommand and cmd_start some.
886	
887	Changes from 20040810 to 20040823
888	
889		* Changed version number to 8.0.10
890		* Additional timer changes as per Arjan / Christoph's comments.
891		* Used mod_timer() instead of del_timer_sync() where appropriate.
892		* Fixed a use after free case (panic on 2.6.8.1 with
893		  CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB set).
894		* Fix compile warning in lpfc_fcp.c.
895		* Minor fix for log message, that prints unassigned brdno which is
896		  zero.
897		* Move scsi_host_alloc() to the beginning of probe_one(). This
898		  ensures that host_lock is available at later stages and also
899		  avoids tons of unnecessary initializing if host_alloc()
900		  fails.
901		* Removed else clause from lpfc_slave_configure that set
902		  sdev->queue_depth.  The driver informs the midlayer of its
903		  setting in the template and only overrides if queue tagging is
904		  enabled.
905		* Added PCI_DEVICE_ID_ZEPHYR and PCI_DEVICE_ID_ZFLY (Junior
906		  Zephyr) support
907	
908	Changes from 20040730 to 20040810
909		
910		* Changed version number to 8.0.9
911		* Removed per HBA driver lock.  Driver now uses the host->host_lock
912		* Restored support for the 2.6.5 kernel for those linux distributions
913		  shipped with the 2.6.5 kernel.
914		* Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) as follows
915		  "[PATCH] use scsi host private data in ->proc_info.  
916		* Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) as follows
917		  "Re: [Emulex] Ready for next round.  This patch cleans up the memory 
918		  allocation routines a little and fixes a missing mempool_destroy and
919		  some missing error handling."
920		* Changed pointers assignments from 0 to NULL.
921		* Added fixes to the lpfc_reset_lun_handler and lpfc_reset_bus_handler
922		  entry points that caused kernel to Oops or hang.
923		* Added fixes to targetless hosts that caused modprobe and insmod to hang.
924		* Ongoing cleanup to many files
925		  
926	Changes from 20040723 to 20040730
927	
928		* Changed version number to 8.0.8
929		* Removed unused LPFN_DRIVER_VERSION #define.
930		* Folded lpfc_findnode_scsiid into lpfc_find_target, its only
931		  caller.
932		* Removed 2 unneeded arguments to lpfc_find_target (lun and
933		  create_flag).
934		* Make lpfc_sli_reset_on_init = 1
935		* Minor cleanup to quieten sparse.
936		* Removed missing function = 0 in tmo routine in lpfc_els.c.
937		* Moved additional binding parameters into lpfc_defaults.c:
938		  lpfc_automap / lpfc_fcp_bind_method
939		* Use msecs_to_jiffies() where applicable.
940		* Only use queue depth attribute only after SLI HBA setup was
941		  completed.
942		* Put in memory barriers for PPC
943		* Added PCI_DEVICE_ID_HELIOS and PCI_DEVICE_ID_JFLY (Junior
944		  Helios) support
945		* Added 4&10 gigabit choices in user option link_speed
946		* Updated timer logic: Set timer data after init_timer use
947		  timer_pending() instead of expires.
948		* Removed some remnants of IP over FC support from Kconfig and
949		  Makefile.
950		* Remove redundant prototypes for lpfc_handle_eratt,
951		  lpfc_handle_latt and lpfc_read_pci.
952		* Ongoing cleanup of lpfc_init.c.
953		* Changed LPFC_CFG_DFT_HBA_Q_DEPTH -> LPFC_CFG_HBA_Q_DEPTH.
954		* Another cleanup stab at lpfc_ct.c. Remove castings, structure
955		  code sanely, remove redundant code, reorganize code so that
956		  functions are invoked after definition.
957	
958	Changes from 20040716 to 20040723
959	
960		* Changed version number to 8.0.7
961		* Cleanup of lpfc_ct.c. Removed number of casts, removed tons of
962		  dead/redundant code, cleaned up badly and poorly written code,
963		  cleaned up return values.
964		* Fixed Persistent binding implementation
965		* Removed all references to lpfc_scsi_req_tmo
966		* Removed last references to lun_skip config parameter.
967		* Removed LPFC_DEV_RPTLUN node failure bit because we don't issue
968		  REPORT_LUNS from the driver anymore.
969		* Removed LUN-tracking in driver.  Removed lpfc_lun struct and
970		  moved any functionality we still need to lpfc_target.
971		* Added new lpfc_jedec_to_ascii() call and replace two instances
972		  of duplicate code with calls to this function.
973		* Removed Volume Set Addressing handling on LUN IDs.
974		* Applied patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) that
975		  removes dead code belonging to lpfc_build_scsi_cmnd() and its
976		  call path. This is related to the recently removed report_lun
977		  code.
978	
979	Changes from 20040709 to 20040716
980	
981		* Changed version number to 8.0.6
982		* Removed internal report LUNs usage.  Removed functions:
983		  lpfc_disc_issue_rptlun, lpfc_disc_cmpl_rptlun,
984		  lpfc_disc_retry_rptlun and their use.
985		* Removed usused scheduler prototypes in lpfc_crtn.h
986		* Replace lpfc_geportname() with generic memcmp().
987		* Rearrange code in lpfc_rcv_plogi_plogi_issue() to make it a
988		  little more readable.
989		* Remove redundant port_cmp != 2 check in if
990		  (!port_cmp) { .... if (port_cmp != 2).... }
991		* Clock changes: removed struct clk_data and timerList.
992		* Clock changes: separate nodev_tmo and els_retry_delay into 2
993		  separate timers and convert to 1 argument changed
994		  LPFC_NODE_FARP_PEND_t to struct lpfc_node_farp_pend convert
995		  ipfarp_tmo to 1 argument convert target struct tmofunc and
996		  rtplunfunc to 1 argument * cr_count, cr_delay and
997		  discovery_threads are only needed to be module_params and not
998		  visible via sysfs.
999	
1000	Changes from 20040614 to 20040709
1001	
1002		* Changed version number to 8.0.5
1003		* Make lpfc_info static.
1004		* Make lpfc_get_scsi_buf static.
1005		* Print a warning if pci_set_mwi returns an error.
1006		* Changed SERV_PARM to struct serv_parm.
1007		* Changed LS_RJT to struct ls_rjt.
1008		* Changed CSP to struct csp.
1009		* Changed CLASS_PARMS to struct class_parms.
1010		* Some cosmetic coding style cleanups to lpfc_fcp.c.
1011		* Providing a sysfs interface that dumps the last 32
1012		  LINK_[UP|DOWN] and RSCN events.
1013		* Get rid of delay_iodone timer.
1014		* Remove qfull timers and qfull logic.
1015		* Convert mbox_tmo, nlp_xri_tmo to 1 argment clock handler
1016		* Removed duplicate extern defs of the bind variables.
1017		* Streamline usage of the defines CLASS2 and CLASS3, removing
1018		  un-necessary checks on config[LPFC_CFG_FCP_CLASS].
1019		* Moving the persistent binding variables to new file
1020		  lpfc_defaults.c
1021		* Changed LPFC_SCSI_BUF_t to struct lpfc_scsi_buf.
1022		* Moved config specific code from probe_one() into
1023		  config_setup(). Removing a redundant check on scandown value
1024		  from bind_setup() as this is already done in config_setup().
1025		* Changed LPFC_SLI_t to struct lpfc_sli.
1026		* Changed FCP_CMND to struct fcp_cmnd.
1027		* Changed FCP_RSP to struct fcp_rsp.
1028		* Remove the need for buf_tmo.
1029		* Changed ULP_BDE64 to struct ulp_bde64.
1030		* Changed ULP_BDE to struct ulp_bde.
1031		* Cleanup lpfc_os_return_scsi_cmd() and its call path.
1032		* Removed lpfc_no_device_delay.
1033		* Consolidating lpfc_hba_put_event() into lpfc_put_event().
1034		* Removed following attributes and their functionality:
1035		  lpfc_extra_io_tmo, lpfc_nodev_holdio, lpfc_delay_rsp_err,
1036		  lpfc_tgt_queue_depth and lpfc_check_cond_err.
1037		* Clock changes consolidating timers, just in the struct lpfc_hba,
1038		  to get rid of clkData and pass only one argument to timeout
1039		  routine. Also, removing need for outstanding clock linked list
1040		  to stop these timers at rmmod.
1041		* Move lpfc.conf contents into lpfc_fcp.c. Removing per adapter
1042		  attributes in favor of global attributes.
1043		* Fix a potential null pointer reference of pmbuf in lpfc_ct.c.
1044		* On reset_lun, issue LUN_RESET as opposed to ABORT_TASK_SET.
1045		* Removed SCSI_REQ_TMO related code.
1046		* Introducing two new defines LPFC_ATTR_R and LPFC_ATTR_RW that do
1047		  a module_param, MODULE_PARM_DESC, lpfc_param_show,
1048		  [lpfc_param_store] and CLASS_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTE.
1049		* Properly clean up when allocation of a linked BDE fails in the
1050		  SCSI queuecommand path.
1051		* Fail SCSI command if dma_map_sg call fails.
1052		* Remove unused macros SWAP_ALWAYS and SWAP_ALWAYS16.
1053		* Reset context2 to 0 on exit in
1054		  lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait_high_priority() and
1055		  lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait().
1056		* Arranging lpfc_scsiport.c to follow style of use after
1057		  definition. This removes the need for the cruft of forward
1058		  declarations. Also removing a redundant #define ScsiResult as it
1059		  already available elsewhere.
1060		* Applying "Streamline lpfc error handling" patch from Christoph
1061		  Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) with following modifications: fix
1062		  mem leaks, remove some misplaced code that need not be there,
1063		  print a message on exit (old code prints two (entry/exit)), make
1064		  ret values consistent (either 1/0 or SUCCESS/FAILURE), keep all
1065		  eh routines in a single file (lpfc_scsiport.c).
1066		* Move contents of lpfc_module_param.h into lpfc_fcp.c.
1067		* Changed sysfs attributes to CLASS_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTES (previously
1068		  DEVICE_ATTRIBUTES). They now appear in
1069		  /sys/class/scsi_host/hostx (previously in
1070		  /sys/bus/pci/drivers/lpfc/devx).
1071		* Removed lpfc_syfs.h and lpfc_sysfs.c.
1072		* Cleanup of config params.  Throttle params have been removed.
1073		  max_lun has been removed. max_target is replaced with a #define,
1074		  lun_skip is removed.  Remove ipfc config params and related
1075		  code.
1076		* Changed DMABUF_t usage to struct lpfc_dmabuf.
1077		* Downsizing iCfgParam structure to include a_string, a_low, a_hi
1078		  and a_default values only.
1079		* Free SCSI buf safety memory pool on shutdown to eliminate memory
1080		  leak.
1081		* Change lpfc_printf_log to a #define. Also include phba->brd_no
1082		  and newline in the print string rather than in the #define.
1083		* Remove code that optionally locates Host Group Pointers in host
1084		  memory SLIM since this is no longer needed for PPC64, once
1085		  CONFIG_PORT uses HBA's view of its BAR0.
1086		* Removed the forward declarations of the sli functions and
1087		  rearranging the code in lpfc_sli.c.
1088		* Removed the preamble functionality from logging.
1089		* Make lpfc_sli_hba_setup() return negative error codes on error
1090		  and correct the comment left over in lpfc_fcp.c
1091		* Removed the lpfc_loadtime variable.
1092		* Put a space between all ifs and their open parens '('.
1093		* Change Studly_Caps LPFC_SCSI_BUF_t to struct lpfc_scsi_buf.
1094		* Fixed insmod hang after hardware error.
1095		* Relocated scsi_host alloc to before we enable the interrupt
1096		  handler
1097		* Add .tmp_versions directory to Makefile clean target.  This
1098		  directory is created in the 2.6.5+ build process (with Red Hat
1099		  kernels at least).
1100		* Changing phba->config to kmalloc lpfc_icfgparam and not
1101		  *phba->config. This is manifesting itself as a panic in
1102		  pci_release_region().
1103		* Fix for firmware download / board reset problem.
1104		* Integrated patch from Christoph Hellwig (hch@infradead.org) to
1105		  reorganize and cleanup lpfc_fcp.c
1106		* Don't abort commands immediately when there is an RSCN event to
1107		  give driver time to rediscover targets before the midlayer
1108		  retries the SCSI commands.
1109	
1110	Changes from 20040604 to 20040614
1111	
1112		* Changed version number to 8.0.4
1113		* Removed lpfc_valid_lun function.
1114		* Added scsi_buf safety pool to address scsi_buf failures in
1115		  queuecommand under low memory conditions.  Allocations now come
1116		  from kmalloc initially, but if kmalloc fails, the allocation
1117		  comes from the safety pool.
1118		* Modified lpfc_slave_alloc to only set the scsi_device->hostdata
1119		  pointer if the driver has discovered the target.  This routine
1120		  always returns success now as well since no error ever occurs in
1121		  the alloc routine.
1122		* Mask only info and warning messages.  Print all error messages
1123		  irrespective of mask.
1124		* Removing lpfc_log_chk_msg_disabled()
1125		* Changed lpfc_printf_log to take struct lpfc_hba * directly
1126		  instead of a "board number".
1127		* Convert dma_sync_single to pci_dma_sync_single_for_{device/cpu}.
1128		* Implemented new style log messages. The message strings are now
1129		  embedded in the call to lpfc_printf_log.
1130		* Decreased FLOGI discovery timeout to 20 seconds.
1131		* On error in lpfc_pci_probe_one() return -1 and not 1.
1132		* Allow for board numbers that are not sequential, paving the way
1133		  for hotplug support.
1134		* scsi_add_host() can fail, so wrap it around in an if(). Also
1135		  initiate scsi_scan_host() after attaching the sysfs attributes.
1136		* lpfc_release_version is used only in lpfc_ct.c, so move it there
1137		  and mark it as static.
1138		* Removed lpfc_sleep_ms and replaced with mdelay or schedule calls
1139		  directly
1140		* Removed all (struct list_head *) casts from clkData-related list
1141		  handling in list_add, list_del macros.
1142		* Removed EXPORT_SYMBOLs.
1143		* Removed LPFC_MIN_QFULL and lpfc_qthrottle_up.
1144		* Replace LPFCSCSITARGET_t with struct lpfc_target.
1145		* Replace LPFCSCSILUN_t with struct lpfc_lun.
1146		* Remove unused struct declarations (fcPathId and fcRouteId) from
1147		  lpfc_scsi.h.
1148		* Rewrite use of FC transport attributes.
1149		* Fix crash when link is lost.  This was due to lpfc_delay_iodone
1150		  calling list_del on an object that was never put on a list.
1151		* Remove trailing spaces at the end of all lines.
1152		* Set MAX_FCP_TARGET to 256 from 0xff.  Set MAX_FCP_LUN and
1153		  MAX_FCP_CMDS to their decimal equivalents and updated
1154		  documentation.
1155	
1156	Changes from 20040526 to 20040604
1157	
1158		* Changed version number to 8.0.3
1159		* Completed sysfs FC transport support.
1160		* Removed unused fields in SCSI LUN and SCSI Target structures:
1161		  void *pTargetProto; void *pTargetOSEnv; void *pLunOSEnv;
1162		* Modified list_for_each to list_for_each_entry. Modified
1163		  list_for_each_safe to list_for_each_entry_safe.
1164		* Remove lpfc_dfc.h file.
1165		* Changed pHba->phba, pCommand->pcmd
1166		* Changed plogi_ndlp -> plogindlp, pos_tmp->postmp, pRsp->prsp,
1167		  pCmd->pcmd
1168		* Changed pText -> ptext
1169		* Changed p_tmp_buff -> ptmpbuff
1170		* Changed pBufList -> pbuflist, pRsp -> prsp, pCmd -> pcmd
1171		* Changed *pos_tmp -> *postmp, *p_mbuf -> *pmbuf
1172		* Following changes are made to the SCSI fast path: Added
1173		  DMA_BUF_t member to the lpfc_scsi_buf_t.  This will reduce a
1174		  memory allocation in the scsi fast path.  Added check for
1175		  targetp == NULL in the scsi fast path.  Increased number of
1176		  scatter gather entries in lpfc_scsi_dma_ext to 4 from 3 and
1177		  changed the size of lpfc_scsi_dma_ext to 264
1178		* Fixing some missing static lpfc_nportdisc.c.
1179		* Reordered #include lines so that lpfc.h doesn't have to #include
1180		  other header files.
1181		* Remove lpfc_get_hba_sym_node_name() as a global EXPORT and make
1182		  it static.
1183		* Move struct clk_data definition from lpfc_hw.h to lpfc_sli.h.
1184		* Changed LPFC_IOCBQ_t to struct lpfc_iocbq.
1185		* Changed LPFC_SLI_RING_t to struct lpfc_sli_ring.
1186		* Changed LPFC_NODELIST_t to struct lpfc_nodelist.
1187		* Rearranged lpfc_nportdisc.c by moving state machine array
1188		  (lpfc_disc_action) and the one function that uses it,
1189		  lpfc_disc_state_machine, to the end of the file, removing the
1190		  need for the raft of prototypes at the top.
1191		* Changed LPFC_BINDLIST_t to struct lpfc_bindlist.
1192		* Removed lpfc_issue_ct_rsp(), lpfc_sleep(), lpfc_add_bind(),
1193		  lpfc_del_bind(), lpfc_sli_wake_mbox_wait() and
1194		  lpfc_sli_issue_mbox_wait().
1195		* Fixed a large number of overly-long lines.
1196		* Fixed some discovery problems: Introduced deferred ndlp removal
1197		  when in DSM to avoid panic when in nested DMSs Fix NportId
1198		  fffc01 handling to not relogin after LOGO fixed handling of LOGO
1199		  on PLOGI issue.
1200		* Changed SLI_CT_REQUEST to lpfc_sli_ct_request.
1201		* Changed NAME_TYPE to struct lpfc_name.
1202		* Changed lpfcCfgParam_t to struct lpfc_cfgparam.
1203		* Changed LPFC_STAT_t to struct lpfc_stats.
1204		* Changed HBAEVT_t to struct lpfc_hba_event.
1205		* Changed Studly_Caps lpfcHBA_t to struct lpfc_hba.
1206		* Removed no longer used tasklet_running flag.
1207		* Removing *PSOME_VAR typedefs and using SOME_VAR* directly.
1208		* Changing .use_clustering to ENABLE_CLUSTERING.
1209		* Modify lpfc_queuecommand to return SCSI_MLQUEUE_HOST_BUSY when
1210		  it can't queue a SCSI command.  Also, remove cmnds_in_flight
1211		  member of struct lpfcHBA for 2.6 kernels as it was only needed
1212		  to determine what to return from queuecommand.
1213		* Change return type of lpfc_evt_iocb_free to void as it doesn't
1214		  return anything.
1215		* Remove unused cmnd_retry_list and in_retry members in struct
1216		  lpfcHBA.
1217		* Remove some instances of unneeded casting of kmalloc's return in
1218		  lpfc_scsiport.c
1219		* Remove lpfc_linux_attach() and lpfc_linux_detach(). Integrate
1220		  them into lpfc_probe_one() and lpfc_release_one() respectively.
1221		* Remove lpfc_num_iocbs, lpfc_num_bufs module parameters
1222		* Remove #defines for NUM_NODES, NUM_BUFS and NUM_IOCBS
1223	
1224	Changes from 20040515 to 20040526
1225	
1226		* Changing version number to 8.0.2.
1227		* Including dma-mapping.h as one of the include headers.  Also
1228		  rearrange the #include order.
1229		* Make functions static as appropriate.
1230		* queuecommand() will now return SCSI_MLQUEUE_HOST_BUSY instead of
1231		  1 to backpressure midlayer.
1232		* Removed function prototypes for lpfc_start_timer() and
1233		  lpfc_stop_timer()
1234		* Changed timer support to be inline.  Clk_data is now declared
1235		  right next to the corresponding timer_list entry so we don't
1236		  have to allocate these clk_data dynamically.
1237		* Add readls after writels to PCI space to flush the writes.
1238		* Fix misspelled word "safety" in function names.
1239		* Fix up comments in lpfc.conf for per HBA parameters to reflect
1240		  new implementation.
1241		* Change lpfc_proc_info handler to get the Nodename from
1242		  fc_nodename and not fc_portname.
1243		* Fix up some comments and whitespace in lpfc_fcp.c.
1244		* Formatting changes: get rid of leading spaces in code

1250		  elx_sched_init after READ_CONFIG to get max_xri from the
1251		  firmware.  Reset ELX_CFG_DFT_HBA_Q_DEPTH to max_xri after
1252		  READ_CONFIG
1253		* Fix fc_get_cfg_parm() to be more robust and support embedded hex
1254		  values.  The lpfc_param's are now defined as:
1255		  lpfc_log_verbose="lpfc:0,lpfc0:0x10,lpfc1:4,lpfc100:0xffff" The
1256		  "," delimter does not matter. It can be anything or not exist at
1257		  all. ie param = "lpfc:0lpfc0:0x10.lpfc1:4txtlpfc100:0xffff" will
1258		  also work.  Additionally the string is treated as case
1259		  insensitive.
1260		* Changed all usage of lpfc_find_lun_device() to lpfc_find_lun().
1261		* Removed unnecessary wrappers lpfc_find_lun_device() and
1262		  lpfc_tran_find_lun().
1263		* Switch from using internal bus/id/lun to similar data from
1264		  scsi_device structure.
1265		* Eliminate one-line function lpfc_find_target()
1266		* Added slave_alloc, slave_destory
1267		* lpfc_scsi_cmd_start can now acquire lun pointer from
1268		  scsi_device->hostdata, which is setup in slave_alloc.
1269		* Eliminate unnecessary checking on every cmd just to see if we
1270		  are accessing the device the first time.
1271		* Remove assumption in lpfc_reset_lun_handler that a valid
1272		  lpfc_scsi_buf is hung off of linux's scsi_cmnd->host_scribble
1273		  when our reset is called.
1274	
1275	Changes from 20040507 to 20040515
1276	
1277		* Changed version to 8.0.1

1279		  lpfc_tasklet deadlock.
1280		* Modified lpfc.conf to remove limit on number of support hosts
1281		* Removed HBAAPI 
1282		* Removed duplication of SCSI opcodes from lpfc_fcp.h that are
1283		  available in scsi/scsi.h
1284		* Rework module_param usage
1285		* Added MODULE_PARAM_DESC for various module_params
1286		* Removed #define EXPORT_SYMTAB
1287		* Removed #includes of if_arp.h and rtnetlink.h
1288		* Removed string "Open Source" from MODULE_DESC
1289		* Cleanup duplicated string definitions used by MODULE_DESC
1290		* Renamed lpfc_pci_[detect|release] to lpfc_pci_[probe|remove]_one
1291		* Fix formatting of lpfc_driver
1292		* Remove unnecessary memset to 0 of lpfcDRVR
1293		* Attach driver attributes always unless pci_module_init failed
1294		* Remove all one-line wrappers from lpfc_mem.
1295		* Remove lpfc_sysfs_set_[show|store] as it is no longer needed
1296		* Redo lpfc_sysfs_params_[show|store] to one value per attribute rule
1297		* Breakdown lpfc_sysfs_info_show into smaller one value per attribute
1298		* Use device attributes instead of driver attributes where appropriate
1299		* Remove no longer needed EXPORT_SYMBOLs
1300		* Remove some unused code (1600 msg's related)
1301	
1302	Changes from 20040429 to 20040507
1303	
1304		* Change version to 8.0.0
1305		* Fix the number of cmd / rsp ring entries in lpfc_fcp.c to match
1306		  the divisions setup in lpfc_hw.h.
1307		* Remove phba->iflag reference.
1308		* Several locking improvements.
1309		* Remove functions lpfc_drvr_init_lock, lpfc_drvr_lock,
1310		  lpfc_drvr_unlock and lpfc_hipri_*.
1311		* Remove LPFC_DRVR_LOCK and LPFC_DRVR_UNLOCK macros.
1312		* Make lpfc_info() use lpfc_get_hba_model_desc() instead of
1313		  rewriting almost identical code.
1314		* Fix 1 overly long line in each of lpfc_cfgparm.h, lpfc_ftp.c and
1315		  lpfc_sli.c.
1316		* Fix build for Red Hat 2.6.3 kernel by #defining MODULE_VERSION
1317		  only if it isn't already defined.
1318		* Change elx_sli_issue_mbox_wait to return correct error code to
1319		  the caller.
1320		* In some of the els completion routines, after calling
1321		  lpfc_elx_chk_latt, driver ignores the return code of the
1322		  lpfc_elx_chk_latt. This will prevent the discovery state machine
1323		  restarting correctly when there are link events in the middle of
1324		  discovery state machine running. Fix this by exiting discovery
1325		  state machine if lpfc_els_chk_latt returns a non zero value.
1326		* Removed MAX_LPFC_BRDS from lpfc_diag.h
1327		* Removed unused first_check.
1328		* Remove some unused fields and defines.

1336		* Remove duplicated prototypes from lpfc_crtn.h:
1337		  lpfc_config_port_prep, lpfc_config_port_post,
1338		  lpfc_hba_down_prep.
1339		* Removed some unused export_symbols.
1340		* Install driver files into */drivers/scsi/lpfc instead of
1341		  */drivers/scsi.
1342	
1343	Changes from 20040426 to 20040429
1344	
1345		* Declared export symbol lpfc_page_alloc and lpfc_page_free
1346		* Changed lpfc version number to 6.98.3
1347		* Move the definition of MAX_LPFC_BRDS to the only header file
1348		  that uses it (lpfc_diag.h).
1349		* Change lpfc_sli_wake_iocb_wait to do a regular wake_up since
1350		  lpfc_sli_issue_iocb_wait now sleeps uninterruptible.
1351		* Replace list_for_each() with list_for_each_safe() when a list
1352		  element could be deleted.
1353		* Fix IOCB memory leak

1358		  mbox response as a byte-count
1359		* Add info attribute to sysfs
1360		* Minor formatting (spaces to tabs) cleanup in lpfc_sched.h
1361		* Remove unused log message number 732
1362		* Completing MODULE_PARM -> module_param changes
1363		* Removed unused targetenable module parameter
1364		* Removed locks from lpfc_sli_issue_mbox_wait routine
1365		* Removed code that retry 29,00 check condition
1366		* Removed code that manipulates rspSnsLen.
1367		* Fix use of lun-q-depth config param
1368		* Fix severity inconsistency with log message 249
1369		* Removed lpfc_max_target from lpfc_linux_attach
1370		* Replace references to lpfcDRVR.pHba[] with lpfc_get_phba_by_inst()
1371		* Change lpfc_param to lpfc-param
1372		* Partially removed 32 HBA restriction within driver.  Incorported
1373		  lpfc_instcnt, lpfc_instance[], and pHba[] into lpfcDRVR
1374		  structure Added routines lpfc_get_phba_by_inst()
1375		  lpfc_get_inst_by_phba() lpfc_check_valid_phba()
1376		* Turn on attributes "set" & "params" by default.
1377		* Further formatting/whitespace/line length cleanup on: lpfc_ct.c
1378		  lpfc_els.c lpfc_fcp.c lpfc_hbadisc.c lpfc_init.c lpfc_ipport.c
1379		  lpfc_mbox.c lpfc_nportdisc.c lpfc_sched.c lpfc_sched.h
1380		  lpfc_scsi.h lpfc_scsiport.c lpfc_sli.c and lpfc_sli.h
1381		* Add log message 249 to log any unsupported device addressing
1382		  modes encountered.
1383		* Add support for 256 targets and 256 LUNs
1384		* Fixed panic in lpfc_linkdown.
1385		* Removed (struct list_head*) casting in several calls to list_del
1386		* Free irq reservation and kill running timers when insmod or
1387		  modprobe are killed via ctrl-c
1388		* Remove drivers/scsi from include path
1389		* Wrap use of log message 311 in macro
1390		* Detect failure return from pci_map_sg call in lpfc_os_prep_io
1391		* Fix use-after-free of IOCB in lpfc_sli_process_sol_iocb which
1392		  was causing an Oops on 2.6.5 kernel.
1393		* Cleanup use of several gotos not used for error exit.
1394		* Replace memcpy_toio() and memcpy_toio() with endian-dependent
1395		  lpfc_memcpy_to_slim() and lpfc_memcpy_from_slim() so that for
1396		  big endian hosts like PPC64, the SLIM is accessed 4 bytes at a
1397		  time instead of as a byte-stream.
1398	
1399	Changes from 20040409 to 20040416
1400	
1401		* The scsi_register and scsi_alloc_host OS calls can fail and
1402		  return a zero-valued host pointer.  A ctrl-C on 2.6 kernels
1403		  during driver load will cause this and the driver to panic.
1404		  Fixed this bug.  Also found a bug in the error_x handling with
1405		  lpfc_sli_hba_down - it was in the wrong place and the driver
1406		  lock was not held, but needed to be (in lpfc_linux_attach) Fixed
1407		  both.  Did some minor comment clean up.
1408		* Removed unwanted (void *) castings.
1409		* Replace define of INVALID_PHYS, with kernel 2.6.5's
1410		  dma_mapping_error() and add a inline function for earlier
1411		  kernels.  Remove lpfc_bad_scatterlist().
1412		* Clean up formatting in hbaapi.h, lpfc.h, lpfc_cfgparm.h,
1413		  lpfc_crtn.h, lpfc_ct.c, lpfc_diag.h, lpfc_disc.h, lpfc_els.c,
1414		  lpfc_fcp.c, lpfc_hbadisc.c, lpfc_hw.h, lpfc_init.c,
1415		  lpfc_ipport.c, lpfc_logmsg.c, lpfc_logmsg.h and lpfc_scsiport.c
1416		  - mostly replacing groups of 8 spaces with hard tabs and keeping
1417		  lines to 80 column max..
1418		* Removed LPFC_DRVR_LOCK call from lpfc_unblock_requests for 2.4
1419		  kernels.  The lpfc_scsi_done routine already unlocks the driver
1420		  lock since it expects this lock to be held.
1421		* Removed global lock capabilities from driver lock routines
1422		* Remove SA_INTERRUPT flag from request_irq
1423		* Move dma_addr_t cast inside of getPaddr macro as everywhere
1424		  getPaddr is used, the return is cast to dma_addr_t.
1425		* Clean up formatting in lpfc_sli.c and lpfc_sysfs.c - mostly
1426		   replacing groups of 8 spaces with hard tabs and keeping lines
1427		   to 80 column max.
1428		* Fix build for RHEL 2.1 BOOT kernels by always #including
1429		  interrupt.h in lpfc.h.
1430		* Fix RHEL 3 build by #defining EXPORT_SYMTAB.
1431		* Replace sprintf with snprintf in lpfc_proc_info.
1432		* Fix build warnings on 2.6 kernels - remove no longer used calls
1433		  to  character device initialization.
1434		* Initial support code for discovery in tasklet conversion.
1435		* Removing char interface and ioctl code.
1436		* Change all elx prefixes to lpfc
1437		* Replace lpfc_write_slim() & lpfc_read_slim() with memcpy_toio(),
1438		  memcpy_fromio(), writel() & readl().
1439	
1440	Changes from 20040402 to 20040409
1441	
1442		* Replaced lpfc_read_hbaregs_plus_offset and
1443		  lpfc_write_hbaregs_plus_offset functions with readl and writel.
1444		* Get rid of long mdelay's in insmod path
1445		* Changed the way our pci_device_id structures are initialized
1446		* Replace lpfc_read/write_CA/HA/HC/HS with calls to readl() &
1447		  writel() directly.
1448		* Increase SLI2_SLIM to 16K Increase cmd / rsp IOCBs accordingly
1449		* Removed lpfc_els_chk_latt from the lpfc_config_post function.
1450		  lpfc_els_chk_latt will enable the link event interrupts when
1451		  flogi is pending which causes two discovery state machines
1452		  running parallelly.
1453		* Add pci_disable_device to unload path.
1454		* Move lpfc_sleep_event from lpfc_fcp.c to lpfc_util_ioctl.c
1455		* Call dma_map_single() & pci_map_single() directly instead of via
1456		  macro lpfc_pci_map().  Allow address 0 for PPC64.
1457		* Change sleep to uninterruptible in lpfc_sli_issue_icob_wait
1458		  because this function doesn't handle signals.
1459		* Move lpfc_wakeup_event from lpfc_fcp.c to lpfc_ioctl.c
1460		* Remove unneeded #include <linux/netdevice.h>
1461		* Remove unused clock variables lpfc_clkCnt and lpfc_sec_clk.
1462		* Get rid of capitalization of function names.
1463		* Removed lpfc_addr_sprintf.
1464		* Implemented gotos in lpfc_linux_attach for error cases.
1465		* Replace mlist->dma.list = dmp->dma.list; to mlist = dmp.
1466		* Remove functions lpfc_get_OsNameVersion and elx_wakeup. Change
1467		  elx_wakeup to wake_up_interruptible
1468		* Add function lpfc_get_os_nameversion and change
1469		  lpfc_get_OsNameVersion to lpfc_get_os_nameversion.
1470		* Remove lpfc_get_OsNameVersion
1471		* Change driver name to a consistent lpfc in every visible place.
1472		* Fix build warning: removed unused variable ret in lpfc_fdmi_tmo.
1473		* Remove lpfc_utsname_nodename_check function
1474		* Remove functions lpfc_register_intr and lpfc_unregister_intr
1475		* Fill in owner field in lpfc_ops file_operations struct and
1476		  remove now unnecessary open and close entry points.
1477		* Change function name prefixes from elx_ to lpfc_
1478		* Remove special case check for TUR in elx_os_prep_io()
1479		* Renamed elx_scsi.h to lpfc_scsi.h
1480		* Renamed elx_sched.h to lpfc_sched.h
1481		* Renamed elx_mem.h to lpfc_mem.h
1482		* Renamed elx_sli.h to lpfc_sli.h
1483		* Renamed elx_logmsg.h to lpfc_logmsg.h
1484		* Renamed elx.h to lpfc.h
1485		* Renamed elx_sli.c to lpfc_sli.c
1486		* Renamed elx_sched.c to lpfc_sched.c
1487		* Renamed elx_mem.c to lpfc_mem.c
1488		* Renamed elx_logmsg.c to lpfc_logmsg.c
1489		* Renamed lpfcLINUXfcp.c lpfc_fcp.c
1490		* Renamed elx_clock.c to lpfc_clock.c
1491		* Reduce stack usage in lpfc_info().
1492		* Move lpip_stats structure from lpfc_hba.h to lpfc_ip.h.
1493		* Move lpfc_stats and HBAEVT_t structures from lpfc_hba.h to
1494		  lpfc.h
1495		* Remove lpfc_hba.h
1496		* Remove duplicate rc definitions from 
1497		* Removed code which used next pointer to store mbox structure.
1498		* Cleaned up list iterations.
1499		* Removed non list manipulation of the next pointers.
1500		* Change list_del()/INIT_LIST_HEAD sequences to list_del_init()
1501		* In ELX_IOCBQ_t: Moved hipri_trigger field to iocb_flag. Combined
1502		  hipri_wait_queue and rsp_iocb in union
1503		* Replaced casting from list_head with list_entry macro.
1504		* Added ct_ndlp_context field to the ELX_IOCBQ_t.
1505		* Do not use DMABUf_t list to store ndlp context
1506		* Return 0 from lpfc_process_iotcl_util() when ELX_INITBRDS
1507		  succeeds.
1508		* remove elx_os_scsiport.h
1509		* Do not use DMABUf_t list to hold rpi context
1510		* Replace elx_cfg_* names with lpfc_cfg-*
1511		* Moved FCP activity to ring 0.  Moved ELS/CT activity to ring 2.
1512		* Clean up formatting of elx_sli.h (tabs for indents, 80 column
1513		  lines).
1514		* Remove unused elxclock declaration in elx_sli.h.
1515		* Since everywhere IOCB_ENTRY is used, the return value is cast,
1516		  move the cast into the macro.
1517		* Split ioctls out into separate files
1518	
1519	Changes from 20040326 to 20040402
1520	
1521		* Updated ChangeLog for 20040402 SourceForge drop.
1522		* Use safe list iterator for ndlp list
1523		* Added code to return NLP_STE_FREED_NODE from the discovery
1524		  state machine functions if the node is freed from the
1525		  function.
1526		* Fixes to DMABUF_t handling
1527		* Fix for load error in discovery
1528		* Remove loop_cnt variable from lpfc_rcv_plogi_unused_node.

1530	        * Remove support for building 2.4 drivers
1531		* Remove elx_util.h and replace elx_disc.h with lpfc_disc.h
1532		* Implemented the Linux list macros in the discovery code.
1533		  Also moved elx_disc.h contents into lpfc_disc.h
1534		* Unused variable cleanup
1535		* Use Linux list macros for DMABUF_t
1536		* Break up ioctls into 3 sections, dfc, util, hbaapi
1537		  rearranged code so this could be easily separated into a
1538		  differnet module later All 3 are currently turned on by
1539		  defines in lpfc_ioctl.c LPFC_DFC_IOCTL, LPFC_UTIL_IOCTL,

1544		* New list implementation for ELX_MBOXQ_t
1545		* Cleaned up some list_head casting.
1546		* Put IPFC ifdef around two members of struct lpfc_nodelist.
1547		* Cleaned up iocb list using list macros and list_head data
1548		  structure.
1549		* lpfc_online() was missing some timer routines that were
1550		  started by lpfc_linux_attach().  These routines are now also
1551		  started by lpfc_online().  lpfc_offline() only stopped
1552		  els_timeout routine.  It now stops all timeout routines
1553		  associated with that hba.
1554		* Replace separate next and prev pointers in struct
1555		  lpfc_bindlist with list_head type.  In elxHBA_t, replace
1556		  fc_nlpbind_start and _end with fc_nlpbind_list and use
1557		  list_head macros to access it.
1558		* Fix ulpStatus for aborting I/Os overlaps with newer firmware
1559		  ulpStatus values
1560		* Rework params_show/store to be consistent as the other
1561		  routines.  Remove generic'ness and rely on set attribute.
1562		* Remove unused log message.
1563		* Collapse elx_crtn.h and prod_crtn.h into lpfc_crtn.h
1564		* Ifdef Scheduler specific routines

1566		  ELX_READ_MEMSEG ELX_READ_BINFO ELX_READ_EINVAL ELX_READ_LHBA
1567		  ELX_READ_LXHBA ELX_SET ELX_DBG LPFC_TRACE 
1568		* Removed variable fc_dbg_flg
1569		* Fixed a bug where HBA_Q_DEPTH was set incorrectly for
1570		  3-digit HBAs.  Also changed can_queue so midlayer will only
1571		  send (HBA_Q_DEPTH - 10) cmds.
1572		* Clean up code in the error path, check condition.  Remove
1573		  ununsed sense-related fields in lun structure.
1574		* Added code for safety pools for following objects: mbuf/bpl,
1575		  mbox, iocb, ndlp, bind
1576		* Wrapped '#include <elx_sched.h>' in '#ifdef USE_SCHEDULER'.
1577		* Fixed 'make clean' target.
1578	        * Build now ignores elx_sched.o, and includes lpfc_sysfs.o.
1579		* Wrapped lpfndd.o target in BUILD_IPFC ifdef.
1580		* Removed elx_os.h inclusion in implementation files.
1581		* Removed ELX_OS_IO_t data structure and put data direction
1582		  and non scatter/gather physical address into the scsi buffer
1583		  structure directly.  Moved DRVR_LOCK, putPaddr, getPaddr
1584		  macros and some defines into elx.h since they are required
1585		  by the whole driver.
1586		* Migrated following ioctls (debug) ELX_DISPLAY_PCI_ALL
1587		  ELX_DEVP ELX_READ_BPLIST ELX_RESET_QDEPTH ELX_STAT.
1588		* Step 1 of attempt to move all Debug ioctls to sysfs.
1589		  Implemented the following IOCTLs in sysfs: ELX_WRITE_HC
1590		  ELX_WRITE_HS ELX_WRITE_HA ELX_WRITE_CA ELX_READ_HC
1591		  ELX_READ_HS ELX_READ_HA ELX_READ_CA ELX_READ_MB ELX_RESET
1592		  ELX_READ_HBA ELX_INSTANCE ELX_LIP.  Also introduced
1593		  attribute "set" to be used in conjunction with the above
1594		  attributes.
1595		* Removed DLINK, enque and deque declarations now that clock
1596		  doesn't use them anymore
1597		* Separated install rule so that BUILD_IPFC has to be set when
1598		  make is called in order for the install rule to attempt to
1599		  copy the lpfndd.o driver.  This change fixes a bug that
1600		  occurs because the install rule by default attempted to
1601		  install lpfndd.o, whereas the default make rule did not by
1602		  default build lpfndd.o.
1603		* Keep track if hbaapi index numbers need to be refreshed.
1604		* Removed prod_os.h from include list.
1605		* Removed LPFC_LOCK and LPFC_UNLOCK macros.  Added OS calls
1606		  into elx_os_scsiport.c.  This file is now empty.

1608		  into code directly and removed LPFC_LOCK_ and _UNLOCK_
1609		  macros
1610		* Remove references to "elx_clock.h"
1611		* Added utsname.h to include list.  The previous checkin to
1612		  elx_os.h removed its inclusion of utsname.h since there is
1613		  precious little in the file.  However, lpfcLINUXfcp.c needs
1614		  it and now has it.
1615		* Removed some commented-out code
1616		* Removed elx_lck_t data structure, stray elxDRVR_t type, and
1617		  include from file.  No longer used.
1618		* Removed two PCI Sync defines.  Removed includes - not
1619		  needed.  Cleaned up macro lines.

1621		  were IPFC specific.
1622		* Removed hipri lock abstractions and added OS call into code.
1623		  Removed elx_lck_t and added spinlock_t directly. Moved two
1624		  IPFC functions into lpfc_ipport.c
1625		* Moved IP specific structures to lpfc_ip.h file.
1626		* lpfc_ipfarp_timeout() uses system timer.  Remove all usages
1627		  of old internal clock support.
1628		* Made changes to compile without IPFC support for the default
1629		  build.  Added ifdef IPFC for all lpfc_ip.h includes.
1630		* Patched elx_free_scsi_buf
1631	  	* Removed elx_sched.o from 2.6 dependencies
1632		* Reworked lpfc_pcimap.
1633		* Use Linux swap macros to replace ELX swapping macros
1634		  (SWAP_SHORT, SWAP_LONG, SWAP_DATA, SWAP_DATA16,
1635		  PCIMEM_SHORT, PCIMEM_LONG, PCIMEM_DATA).
1636		* move in_interrupt() check inside of elx_sleep_ms()
1637		* Moved location of pci.h include.
1638		* Restored elx_lck_t types in elxHBA_t.
1639		* Removed elx_pci_dma_sync call.  Also removed some PCI
1640		  defines from elx_hw.h and removed the spinlock_t locks that
1641		  are no longer used in elx.h
1642		* elx_iodone() now uses system timer.
1643	  	* elx_qfull_retry() now uses system timer.
1644		* lpfc_put_buf(), lpfc_ip_xri_timeout() and
1645		  lpfc_ip_timeout_handler() now use system timer.
1646		* lpfc_fdmi_tmo() and lpfc_qthrottle_up() now use system
1647	          timer.
1648		* Removed num_bufs and num_iocbs configuration parameters.
1649		* Fixed a memory corruption bug. This was caused by a memory
1650		  write to ndlp structure from lpfc_cmpl_els_acc function.
1651		  This ndlp structure was freed from lpfc_els_unsol_event.
1652		* lpfc_disc_timeout() and lpfc_establish_link_tmo() now use
1653		  system timer.  Also update lpfc_els_retry_delay() to do a
1654		  single lock release at the end.
1655		* Remove use of PAN (pseudo adapter number).
1656		* Reintroduced usage of the cross compiler for building on
1657		  ppc64 to remove build errors that were cropping up when
1658		  using the standard gcc compiler.
1659		* Fix no-unlock-before return in lpfc_els_retry_delay which was
1660		  causing  a deadlock on insmod in some environments.
1661		* Minor format changes fix up comments
1662		* Create utility clock function elx_start_timer() and
1663		  elx_stop_timer().  All timeout routines now use these common
1664		  routines.

1674		  not generated if CONFIG_NET_LPFC is not set. Also refer to
1675		  BASEINCLUDE only in out of kernel source module builds as it
1676		  will not exist otherwise.
1677		* Removed unused malloc counters from lpfcLINUXfcp.c.
1678		* Remove some unnecessary #includes in lpfcLINUXfcp.c
