1 AACRAID Driver for Linux (take two)
3 Introduction
4 -------------------------
5 The aacraid driver adds support for Adaptec (http://www.adaptec.com)
6 RAID controllers. This is a major rewrite from the original
7 Adaptec supplied driver. It has signficantly cleaned up both the code
8 and the running binary size (the module is less than half the size of
9 the original).

34 added new ioctls, changed scsi interface to use new error handler,
35 increased the number of fibs and outstanding commands to a container)
37 (fixed 64bit and 64G memory model, changed confusing naming convention
38 where fibs that go to the hardware are consistently called hw_fibs and
39 not just fibs like the name of the driver tracking structure)
