2 Current Version : 00.00.04.31-rc1
3 Older Version   : 00.00.04.17.1-rc1

1.	Add the Online Controller Reset (OCR) to the Driver.
	OCR is the new feature for megaraid_sas driver which
	will allow the fw to do the chip reset which will not
	affect the OS behavior.

	To add the OCR support, driver need to do:
		a). reset the controller chips -- Xscale and Gen2 which
		will change the function calls and add the reset function
		related to this two chips.

		b). during the reset, driver will store the pending cmds
		which not returned by FW to driver's pending queue.  Driver
		will re-issue those pending cmds again to FW after the OCR
		finished.

		c). In driver's timeout routine, driver will report to
		OS as reset. Also driver's queue routine will block the
		cmds until the OCR finished.

		d). in Driver's ISR routine, if driver get the FW state as
		state change, FW in Failure status and FW support online controller
		reset (OCR), driver will start to do the controller reset.

		e). In driver's IOCTL routine, the application cmds will wait for the
		OCR to finish, then issue the cmds to FW.

		f). Before driver kill adapter, driver will do last chance of
		OCR to see if driver can bring back the FW.

2.	Add the support update flag to the driver to tell LSI megaraid_sas
	application which driver will support the device update.  So application
	will not need to do the device update after application add/del the device
	from the system.
3.	In driver's timeout routine, driver will do three time reset if fw is in
	failed state.  Driver will kill adapter if can't bring back FW after the
	this three times reset.
4.	Add the input parameter max_sectors to 1MB support to our GEN2 controller.
	customer can use the input parameter max_sectors to add 1MB support to GEN2
	controller.

3.	driver fixed the device update issue after get the AEN
	PD delete/ADD, LD add/delete from FW.

3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.20

1. Add shutdown DCMD cmd to the shutdown routine to make FW shutdown proper.
2. Unexpected interrupt occurs in HWR Linux driver, add the dumy readl pci flush will fix this issue.

2 Current Version : 00.00.03.20-RC1
3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.16

1. Rollback the sense info implementation
	Sense buffer ptr data type in the ioctl path is reverted back
	to u32 * as in previous versions of driver.

2. Fixed the driver frame count.
	When Driver sent wrong frame count to firmware.  As this
	particular command is sent to drive, FW is seeing continuous
	chip resets and so the command will timeout.

3. Add the new controller(1078DE) support to the driver
	and Increase the max_wait to 60 from 10 in the controller
	operational status.  With this max_wait increase, driver will
	make sure the FW will 	finish the pending cmd for KDUMP case.

1. Increased MFI_POLL_TIMEOUT_SECS to 60 seconds from 10. FW may take
	a max of 60 seconds to respond to the INIT cmd.

3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.14

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

3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.13

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

3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.11

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

	1. Memory Manager for IOCTL removed for 2.6 kernels.
	   pci_alloc_consistent replaced by dma_alloc_coherent. With this
	   change there is no need of memory manager in the driver code

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

	James <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>

	3. SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE is not supported by FW and thus blocked by driver.
	4. Hibernation support added
	5. Performing diskdump while running IO in RHEL 4 was failing. Fixed.

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

	The driver now waits for 10 seconds to elapse instead of 5 (as in
	previous release) to resume IO.

2 Current Version : 00.00.03.08
3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.07

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

	Fix:	The driver is now throttling IO.
	Checks added in megasas_queue_command to know if FW is able to
	process commands within timeout period. If number of retries
	is 2 or greater,the driver stops sending cmd to FW temporarily. IO is
	resumed if pending cmd count reduces to 16 or 5 seconds has elapsed
	from the time cmds were last sent to FW.

ii.	FW enables WCE bit in Mode Sense cmd for drives that are configured
	as WriteBack. The OS may send "SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE" cmd when Logical
	Disks are exposed with WCE=1. User is advised to enable Write Back
	mode only when the controller has battery backup. At this time
	Synhronize cache is not supported by the FW. Driver will short-cycle
	the cmd and return success without sending down to FW.

2 Current Version : 00.00.03.06
3 Older Version   : 00.00.03.05

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.
2. Added check in megasas_queue_command and dpc/isr routine to see if we have already declared adapter dead
   (hw_crit_error=1). If hw_crit_error==1, now we donot accept any processing of pending cmds/accept any cmd from OS

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

	The template will have definitions that will be initialised to appropriate values for a specific family of controllers. The template definition has four function pointers. 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.
