           In /boot/device.hints:

           BT-542B   ISA      30     SCSI-2 (542B revision H)

           MultiMaster "A" Series Host Adapters:

           Adapter   Bus   Commands  Description

           BT-542B   ISA      30     SCSI-2 (542B revisions A - G)

     Tagged queueing is supported on ’W’ series adapters, ’C’ series adapters
     with firmware of rev 4.42 and higher, and ’S’ series adapters with
     firmware of rev 3.35 and higher.

     Boards with certain firmware revisions may lock up under heavy load to
     certain devices, especially if tagged queueing is used.  Should you
     encounter a problem with your adapter, contact Mylex technical support
     and ensure you have the latest firmware for your controller.

HISTORY

     The bt driver first appeared in the 386BSD patch kit.

AUTHORS

     Julian Elischer wrote a driver for the Multimaster cards that appeared in
     the 386BSD patch kit.  The driver was rewritten by Justin T. Gibbs to
     take advantage of new board features and work with the CAM SCSI framework
     in FreeBSD 3.0.

     Special thanks to Leonard N. Zubkoff for writing such a complete and well
     documented Mylex/BusLogic MultiMaster driver for Linux.  Support in this
     driver for the wide range of MultiMaster controllers and firmware
     revisions, with their otherwise undocumented quirks, would not have been
     possible without his efforts.
