ARECA FIRMWARE SPEC
===================

Usage of IOP331 adapter
=======================

(All In/Out is in IOP331's view)

1. Message 0
------------

- InitThread message and return code

2. Doorbell is used for RS-232 emulation
----------------------------------------

inDoorBell
    bit0
	data in ready
	zDRIVER DATA WRITE OK)
    bit1
	data out has been read
	(DRIVER DATA READ OK)

outDooeBell:
    bit0
	data out ready
	(IOP331 DATA WRITE OK)
    bit1
	data in has been read
	(IOP331 DATA READ OK)

3. Index Memory Usage
---------------------

============   ==========================================
offset 0xf00   for RS232 out (request buffer)
offset 0xe00   for RS232 in  (scratch buffer)
offset 0xa00   for inbound message code message_rwbuffer
	       (driver send to IOP331)
offset 0xa00   for outbound message code message_rwbuffer
	       (IOP331 send to driver)
============   ==========================================

4. RS-232 emulation
-------------------

Currently 128 byte buffer is used:

============   =====================
1st uint32_t   Data length (1--124)
Byte 4--127    Max 124 bytes of data
============   =====================

5. PostQ
--------

All SCSI Command must be sent through postQ:

    (inbound queue port)
	Request frame must be 32 bytes aligned:

	    #bit27--bit31
		flag for post ccb
	    #bit0--bit26
		real address (bit27--bit31) of post arcmsr_cdb

		=====   ===================
		bit31   ==  ===============
			0   256 bytes frame
			1   512 bytes frame
			==  ===============
		bit30   ==  ==============
			0   normal request
			1   BIOS request
			==  ==============
		bit29   reserved
		bit28   reserved
		bit27   reserved
		=====   ===================

    (outbount queue port)
	Request reply:

	    #bit27--bit31
		    flag for reply
	    #bit0--bit26
		    real address (bit27--bit31) of reply arcmsr_cdb

		    =====   =======================================================
		    bit31   must be 0 (for this type of reply)
		    bit30   reserved for BIOS handshake
		    bit29   reserved
		    bit28   ==  ===================================================
			    0   no error, ignore AdapStatus/DevStatus/SenseData
			    1   Error, error code in AdapStatus/DevStatus/SenseData
			    ==  ===================================================
		    bit27   reserved
		    =====   =======================================================

6. BIOS request
---------------

All BIOS request is the same with request from PostQ

Except:

Request frame is sent from configuration space:

	============   ==========================
	offset: 0x78   Request Frame (bit30 == 1)
	offset: 0x18   writeonly to generate
		       IRQ to IOP331
	============   ==========================

Completion of request::

	(bit30 == 0, bit28==err flag)

RS-232 Interface for Areca Raid Controller
==========================================

      The low level command interface is exclusive with VT100 terminal

1. Sequence of command execution
--------------------------------

	(A) Header
		3 bytes sequence (0x5E, 0x01, 0x61)

	(B) Command block
		variable length of data including length,
		command code, data and checksum byte

	(C) Return data
		variable length of data

2. Command block
----------------

	(A) 1st byte
		command block length (low byte)

	(B) 2nd byte
		command block length (high byte)

		.. Note:: command block length shouldn't > 2040 bytes,
			  length excludes these two bytes

	(C) 3rd byte
		command code

	(D) 4th and following bytes
		variable length data bytes

	    depends on command code

	(E) last byte
	    checksum byte (sum of 1st byte until last data byte)

3. Command code and associated data
-----------------------------------

The following are command code defined in raid controller Command
code 0x10--0x1? are used for system level management,
no password checking is needed and should be implemented in separate
well controlled utility and not for end user access.
Command code 0x20--0x?? always check the password,
password must be entered to enable these command::
