Subject: [PATCH 0/5] bfa: Brocade BFA FC SCSI driver (overview)
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Saturday 14th March 2009 19:52:40 UTC (over 7 years ago)
From: Jing Huang 

This is the an interim submission of Brocade BFA FC SCSI Driver for code
review.
We moved FC protocol/port state machine part of the driver to the firmware
to
make the driver simpler. We also implemented the code review comments
received
from last submission which includes: 1) replaced bfa specific list
management
routines by standard linux list implemetation. 2) Other minor fixes such as

namming, kconfig etc.

Please note that this driver is still not fully functioning. We expect to
do
anoher submssion next week after we complete all the changes. 

It contains a serial of 5 patches generated using 2.6.29-rc8 kernel. Here
is
a brief description of each patch:

[PATCH 1/5]: Linux driver specific code, things such as module load/unload,
PCI probe/release, interrupt handler, and sysfs interface etc. All the
files
start with "bfad_" prefix.

[PATCH 2/5]: Hardware/FW access code. All files start with "bfa_" prefix.

[PATCH 3/5]: Common header files shared by linux driver specific and
hardware/FW access code.

[PATCH 4/5]: Updated Kconfig and Makefile for driver/scsi, and Makefile
for bfa driver 

[PATCH 5/5]: Updated MAINTAINER file.
