adv -- Advansys ISA/VL/EISA/PCI 8bit SCSI Host adapter driver
For one or more ISA or VL cards:
For one or more EISA cards:
For one or more PCI cards:
For one or more SCSI busses:
This driver provides access to the 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 device.
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.

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 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
