182	2 Current Version : 00.00.04.31-rc1
183	3 Older Version   : 00.00.04.17.1-rc1
184	
185	1.	Add the Online Controller Reset (OCR) to the Driver.
186		OCR is the new feature for megaraid_sas driver which
187		will allow the fw to do the chip reset which will not
188		affact the OS behavious.
189	
190		To add the OCR support, driver need to do:
191			a). reset the controller chips -- Xscale and Gen2 which
192			will change the function calls and add the reset function
193			related to this two chips.
194	
195			b). during the reset, driver will store the pending cmds
196			which not returned by FW to driver's pending queue.  Driver
197			will re-issue those pending cmds again to FW after the OCR
198			finished.
199	
200			c). In driver's timeout routine, driver will report to
201			OS as reset. Also driver's queue routine will block the
202			cmds until the OCR finished.
203	
204			d). in Driver's ISR routine, if driver get the FW state as
205			state change, FW in Failure status and FW support online controller
206			reset (OCR), driver will start to do the controller reset.
207	
208			e). In driver's IOCTL routine, the application cmds will wait for the
209			OCR to finish, then issue the cmds to FW.
210	
211			f). Before driver kill adapter, driver will do last chance of
212			OCR to see if driver can bring back the FW.
213	
214	2.	Add the support update flag to the driver to tell LSI megaraid_sas
215		application which driver will support the device update.  So application
216		will not need to do the device update after application add/del the device
217		from the system.
218	3.	In driver's timeout routine, driver will do three time reset if fw is in
219		failed state.  Driver will kill adapter if can't bring back FW after the
220		this three times reset.
221	4.	Add the input parameter max_sectors to 1MB support to our GEN2 controller.
222		customer can use the input paramenter max_sectors to add 1MB support to GEN2
223		controller.

231	
232	1.	Add the pad_0 in mfi frame structure to 0 to fix the
233		context value larger than 32bit value issue.
234	
235	2.	Add the logic drive list to the driver.  Driver will
236		keep the logic drive list internal after driver load.
237	
238	3.	driver fixed the device update issue after get the AEN
239		PD delete/ADD, LD add/delete from FW.

334	1. Rollback the sense info implementation
335		Sense buffer ptr data type in the ioctl path is reverted back
336		to u32 * as in previous versions of driver.
337	
338	2. Fixed the driver frame count.
339		When Driver sent wrong frame count to firmware.  As this
340		particular command is sent to drive, FW is seeing continuous
341		chip resets and so the command will timeout.
342	
343	3. Add the new controller(1078DE) support to the driver
344		and Increase the max_wait to 60 from 10 in the controller
345		operational status.  With this max_wait increase, driver will
346		make sure the FW will 	finish the pending cmd for KDUMP case.

366	
367	1. Added module parameter "poll_mode_io" to support for "polling"
368		(reduced interrupt operation).  In this mode, IO completion
369		interrupts are delayed. At the end of initiating IOs, the
370		driver schedules for cmd completion if there are pending cmds
371		to be completed.  A timer-based interrupt has also been added
372		to prevent IO completion processing from being delayed
373		indefinitely in the case that no new IOs are initiated.

382	
383	1. Setting the max_sectors_per_req based on max SGL supported by the
384		FW. Prior versions calculated this value from controller info
385		(max_sectors_1, max_sectors_2). For certain controllers/FW,
386		this was resulting in a value greater than max SGL supported
387		by the FW. Issue was first reported by users running LUKS+XFS
388		with megaraid_sas.  Thanks to RB for providing the logs and
389		duplication steps that helped to get to the root cause of the
390		issue.  2. Increased MFI_POLL_TIMEOUT_SECS to 60 seconds from
391		10. FW may take a max of 60 seconds to respond to the INIT
392		cmd.

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

434		   pci_alloc_consistent replaced by dma_alloc_coherent. With this

445	
446		It does, but the DMA API was expanded to cope with this exact case, so
447		use dma_alloc_coherent() directly in the megaraid code instead.  The dev
448		is just &pci_dev->dev.

450		James <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>
451	
452		3. SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE is not supported by FW and thus blocked by driver.
453		4. Hibernation support added
454		5. Performing diskdump while running IO in RHEL 4 was failing. Fixed.

463	
464	i.	Under heavy IO mid-layer prints "DRIVER_TIMEOUT" errors

475	
476	i.	Under heavy IO mid-layer prints "DRIVER_TIMEOUT" errors
477	
478		Fix:	The driver is now throttling IO.
479		Checks added in megasas_queue_command to know if FW is able to
480		process commands within timeout period. If number of retries
481		is 2 or greater,the driver stops sending cmd to FW temporarily. IO is
482		resumed if pending cmd count reduces to 16 or 5 seconds has elapsed
483		from the time cmds were last sent to FW.
484	
485	ii.	FW enables WCE bit in Mode Sense cmd for drives that are configured
486		as WriteBack. The OS may send "SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE" cmd when Logical
487		Disks are exposed with WCE=1. User is advised to enable Write Back
488		mode only when the controller has battery backup. At this time
489		Synhronize cache is not supported by the FW. Driver will short-cycle
490		the cmd and return success without sending down to FW.

503	
504	1. Added new memory management module to support the IOCTL memory allocation. For IOCTL we try to allocate from the memory pool created during driver initialization. If mem pool is empty then we allocate at run time.
505	2. Added check in megasas_queue_command and dpc/isr routine to see if we have already declared adapter dead
506	   (hw_crit_error=1). If hw_crit_error==1, now we donot accept any processing of pending cmds/accept any cmd from OS

520	v.	Removing in megasas_exit the sysfs entry created for megasas_dbg_lvl
521	vi.	In megasas_teardown_frame_pool(), cmd->frame was passed instead of
522		cmd->sense to pci_pool_free. Fixed. Bug was pointed out by

540	iii.	Frame count optimization. Main frame can contain 2 SGE for 64 bit SGLs and
541		3 SGE for 32 bit SGL
542	iv.	Tasklet added for cmd completion
543	v.	If FW in operational state before firing INIT, now we send RESET Flag to FW instead of just READY. This is used to do soft reset.
544	vi.	megasas_ctrl_prop structure updated (based on FW struct)
545	vii.	Added print : FW now in Ready State during initialization

562	
563			Interrupt is enabled after required initialization is over.
564			This is done to ensure that driver is ready to handle interrupts when
565			it is generated by the controller.

During driver initialisation the function pointers will be set based on the controller family type. This change is done to support new controllers that has different processors and thus different register set.
