     adv — Advansys ISA/VL/PCI Narrow 8bit SCSI Host adapter driver


     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device scbus
           device adv

           For one or more VL/ISA cards:
           device isa

           In /boot/device.hints:

           For one or more PCI cards:
           device pci


     This driver provides access to the narrow 8bit SCSI bus connected to the Advanced Systems
     Products, Inc.  ASC900, ASC1000, ASC1090, ASC1200, ASC3030, ASC3050, and ASC3150 host
     adapter chips.  The following tables list the AdvanSys products using these chips, their bus
     attachment type, maximum sync rate, and the maximum number of commands that can be handled
     by the adapter concurrently.

           1.   This board has been shipped by HP with the 4020i CD-R drive.  The board has no
                BIOS so it cannot control a boot device, but it can control any secondary SCSI
           2.   This board has been sold by Iomega as a Jaz Jet PCI adapter.
           3.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the i540 SpeedMaster.
           4.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the i542 SpeedMaster.
           5.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the Fast SCSI Pro PCI.

     For ISA or Vesa Local Bus adapters, one kernel hints entry is required for every card to be
     attached by the system.  Specific values for the port address, irq and drq may be specified.
     If unspecified, the driver will query the device for its current settings and use those.  If
     the port address is unspecified, the driver will search for it at one of the possible
     addresses.  Cards configured for ISA PNP addresses are found automatically.  The possible
     port addresses for these card are 0x110, 0x130, 0x150, 0x190, 0x210, 0x230, 0x250, and

     Per target configuration performed in the AdvanceWare menu, which is accessible at boot, is
     honored by this driver.  This includes synchronous/asynchronous transfers, maximum
     synchronous negotiation rate, disconnection, tagged queueing, and the host adapter's SCSI
     ID.  The global setting for the maximum number of tagged transactions allowed per target is
     not honored as the CAM SCSI system will automatically determine the maximum number of tags a
     device can receive as well as guarantee fair resource allocation among devices.

     The adv driver appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.


     The adv driver was ported by Justin T. Gibbs from the Linux driver written by Bob Frey of
     Advanced System Products, Inc.  Many thanks to AdvanSys for providing the original driver
     under a suitable license for use in FreeBSD.
