sg3_utils is a package of command line utilities for sending
SCSI and some ATA commands to devices. This package targets
the linux kernel (lk) 2.6 and lk 2.4 series. Also included are
ports to FreeBSD, Tru64, Solaris, and Windows (cygwin and mingw).

This version adds these utilities: sg_get_lba_status,
sg_read_block_limits and sg_unmap . Various changes made by
www.t10.org since April 2009 are reflected in this version.
A lot more thin provisioning support has been added. There
is a copy of ChangeLog below.
