129	   3. DEC2115X PCI-PCI bridge with multiple controller chips on secondary bus
130	   4. All three SCSI connectors may be used simultaneously without

132	
133	2. Version History
134	   7.0	  (4th August, 2005)
135		- Updated driver to use SCSI transport class infrastructure
136		- Upported sequencer and core fixes from last adaptec released
137		  version of the driver.
138	   6.2.36 (June 3rd, 2003)
139	        - Correct code that disables PCI parity error checking.
140	        - Correct and simplify handling of the ignore wide residue
141	          message.  The previous code would fail to report a residual
142	          if the transaction data length was even and we received
143	          an IWR message.
144	        - Add support for the 2.5.X EISA framework.
145	        - Update for change in 2.5.X SCSI proc FS interface.
146	        - Correct Domain Validation command-line option parsing.
147	        - When negotiation async via an 8bit WDTR message, send
148	          an SDTR with an offset of 0 to be sure the target
149	          knows we are async.  This works around a firmware defect
150	          in the Quantum Atlas 10K.
151	        - Clear PCI error state during driver attach so that we
152	          don't disable memory mapped I/O due to a stray write
153	          by some other driver probe that occurred before we
154	          claimed the controller.
155	
156	   6.2.35 (May 14th, 2003)
157	        - Fix a few GCC 3.3 compiler warnings.
158	        - Correct operation on EISA Twin Channel controller.
159	        - Add support for 2.5.X's scsi_report_device_reset().
160	
161	   6.2.34 (May 5th, 2003)
162	        - Fix locking regression introduced in 6.2.29 that
163	          could cause a lock order reversal between the io_request_lock
164	          and our per-softc lock.  This was only possible on RH9,
165	          SuSE, and kernel.org 2.4.X kernels.
166	
167	   6.2.33 (April 30th, 2003)
168	        - Dynamically disable PCI parity error reporting after
169	          10 errors are reported to the user.  These errors are
170	          the result of some other device issuing PCI transactions
171	          with bad parity.  Once the user has been informed of the
172	          problem, continuing to report the errors just degrades
173	          our performance.
174	
175	   6.2.32 (March 28th, 2003)
176	        - Dynamically sized S/G lists to avoid SCSI malloc
177	          pool fragmentation and SCSI mid-layer deadlock.
178	
179	   6.2.28 (January 20th, 2003)
180	        - Domain Validation Fixes
181	        - Add ability to disable PCI parity error checking.
182	        - Enhanced Memory Mapped I/O probe
183	
184	   6.2.20 (November 7th, 2002)
185	        - Added Domain Validation.

189	        WARNING: ALTERING OR ADDING THESE DRIVER PARAMETERS
190	                 INCORRECTLY CAN RENDER YOUR SYSTEM INOPERABLE.

210	          Definition: Do not probe for EISA/VLB controllers.
211	                      This is a toggle.  If the driver is compiled
212	                      to not probe EISA/VLB controllers by default,
213	                      specifying "no_probe" will enable this probing.
214	                      If the driver is compiled to probe EISA/VLB
215	                      controllers by default, specifying "no_probe"
216	                      will disable this probing.
217	     Possible Values: This option is a toggle
218	       Default Value: EISA/VLB probing is disabled by default.
219	   -----------------------------------------------------------------
220	              Option: pci_parity
221	          Definition: Toggles the detection of PCI parity errors.
222	                      On many motherboards with VIA chipsets,
223	                      PCI parity is not generated correctly on the
224	                      PCI bus.  It is impossible for the hardware to
225	                      differentiate between these "spurious" parity
226	                      errors and real parity errors.  The symptom of
227	                      this problem is a stream of the message:
228	    "scsi0: Data Parity Error Detected during address or write data phase"
229	                      output by the driver.
230	     Possible Values: This option is a toggle
231	       Default Value: PCI Parity Error reporting is disabled
232	   -----------------------------------------------------------------
233	              Option: no_reset

245	          Definition: Send an ordered tag periodically to prevent
246	                      tag starvation.  Needed for some older devices
247	     Possible Values: This option is a flag

258	                      This option sets the default tag depth which
259	                      may be selectively overridden vi the tag_info
260	                      option.

264	              Option: tag_info:{{value[,value...]}[,{value[,value...]}...]}
265	          Definition: Set the per-target tagged queue depth on a
266	                      per controller basis.  Both controllers and targets
267	                      may be omitted indicating that they should retain
268	                      the default tag depth.
269	            Examples: tag_info:{{16,32,32,64,8,8,,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32}

275	                          specifies a tag depth of 32 for targets 1,2,7-15
276	                        All other targets retain the default depth.
277	
278	                      tag_info:{{},{32,,32}}
279	                        On Controller 1
280	                          specifies a tag depth of 32 for targets 0 and 2
281	                        All other targets retain the default depth.
282

286	              Option: seltime:[value]
287	          Definition: Specifies the selection timeout value

291	              Option: dv: {value[,value...]} 
292	          Definition: Set Domain Validation Policy on a per-controller basis.
293	                      Controllers may be omitted indicating that
294	                      they should retain the default read streaming setting.
295	             Example: dv:{-1,0,,1,1,0}
296	                        On Controller 0 leave DV at its default setting.
297	                        On Controller 1 disable DV.
298	                        Skip configuration on Controller 2.

308	                      U160 speeds and off for all other controller types.
309	   -----------------------------------------------------------------
310	
311	   Example:
312	   'options aic7xxx aic7xxx=verbose,no_probe,tag_info:{{},{,,10}},seltime:1'
313	        enables verbose logging, Disable EISA/VLB probing,
314	        and set tag depth on Controller 1/Target 2 to 10 tags.
