3w-xxxx: driver for 3ware SATA RAID Controllers updated to version 1.26.03. This applies several upstream changes, most notably: * Fixed a bug that caused data corruption when using a 3ware 7000 or 8000 series card in a system with greater than 2GB of RAM. * Anaconda no longer hangs on 64-bit architectures when using a 3ware 8006 series card in a system with greater than 4GB of RAM. * The irq handler is now freed when __tw_shutdown() is initiated. This prevents a possible null pointer de-reference if an interrupt was shared during shutdown. * RCD bit for caching mode page is now turned on. * ioctl resets and scsi resets are now serialized so they no longer collide.

Description Tomas Henzl 2008-06-18 05:54:54 EDT
Changes in this release:

- Fix bugzilla #435029: Data corruption with the 3w-xxxx driver on a
3ware 7000 or 8000 series card and > 2GB of RAM.

- Fix bugzilla #422391: Anaconda installer hangs while trying to
install Red Hat 5 Server 64bit on systems using a 3WARE SATA RAID
Controller 8006 series (3w_xxxx driver) and 4GB of more of RAM

- Free irq handler in __tw_shutdown().
  (This could have caused null pointer dereference if an interrupt was
shared during shutdown)

- Turn on RCD bit for caching mode page.
  (Correctly advertise as not supporting read caching from cachine mode page)

- Serialize reset code
  (Correctly serialize ioctl resets and scsi resets so they don't collide)

- Use default DMA data direction to prevent data corruption when using
SWIOTLB with 4GB+ on EM64T.
  (This fixes above 2 bugzilla entries:  #435029, #422391)
