I'm writing unreleased driver, based on pd.c in HDD part.
(And on ide-scsi.c of mainstream driver in ATAPI part.)
My driver architecture is like MacOS ATA Manager
(single async call for whole ATA transaction, passing struct scatterlist *
to low-level). (If somebody of you wish to run mainstream SCSI drivers
on external ATAPI hardware - I'll point you released Linux ATA Manager
Author of patch in
have just confused max_segments with max_sectors.
In result driver built clustered ATA requests exceeding the maximum of 256
My driver failed on that error, and I fixed this confusing (after reading
(May be pd.c has some features, that prevent it failing on this bug, but I
such confuse should be fixed anyway ;-) )
So I backported my patch to PARIDE pd.c included in RH 7.1 (I have no 2.4.5
and posted it here.
