NAME
ahd -- Adaptec PCI/PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI host adapter driver
SYNOPSIS
For one or more PCI/PCI-X cards: ahd* at pci? dev ? function ? To compile in debugging code: options AHD_DEBUG options AHD_DEBUG_OPTS=<bitmask of options> options AHD_REG_PRETTY_PRINT For SCSI busses: scsibus* at ahd?
DESCRIPTION
This driver provides access to the SCSI bus(ses) connected to Adaptec AIC79xx host adapter chips. Driver features include support for narrow and wide busses, fast, ultra, ultra2, ultra160, and ultra320 synchronous transfers, packetized trans- fers, tagged queueing, and 512 SCBs. The AHD_DEBUG_OPTS option is used to control which diagnostic messages are printed to the console when AHD_DEBUG is enabled. Logically OR the following bits together: Value Function 0x0001 Show miscellaneous information 0x0002 Show sense data 0x0004 Show Serial EEPROM contents 0x0008 Show bus termination settings 0x0010 Show host memory usage 0x0020 Show SCSI protocol messages 0x0040 Show mode pointer of the chip register window 0x0080 Show selection timeouts 0x0100 Show FIFO usage messages 0x0200 Show Queue Full status 0x0400 Show SCB queue status 0x0800 Show inbound packet information 0x1000 Show S/G list information 0x2000 Enable extra diagnostic code in the firmware The AHD_REG_PRETTY_PRINT option compiles in support for human-readable bit definitions for each register that is printed by the debugging code. However, it also bloats the compiled size of the driver by approximately 215KB.
HARDWARE
