Description Marcus Barrow 2008-02-26 13:48:54 EST
Recent testing of our new HBA's found a problem in the flash programming logic.

The driver fails to wait for the write protect to be set on the flash chip. This can cause
corruption of the contents if accesses occur before this period is complete.

Since the driver will refuse to use a card with corrupted flash, this is a critical
issue. 

This patch is low risk, it adds several lines of code to poll for completion of
the write protect operation. It is tested at QLogic and was submitted upstream in January.
