Anyone thought about porting the sea driver from 2.2.8 to 3.* ?
( sea adapter is for Seagate ST01/ST02, Future Domain TMC-885, TMC-950 SCSI )
I upgraded a system from 2.2.8 to 3.2 only to find support for the controller
had been removed :-( Now wasting time going back to 2.2.8 !
If customers or users of other OS's had been watching, they would have had a
good laugh at FreeBSD; It's hard to convince people:
"FreeBSD is nice, you should try it"
when a valid response is
"No Thanks - Maybe they'll feel free to abandon my hardware too"
I guess SEA was deleted in the move to CAM, but that's not a justification,
just a temporary excuse, & 2.2.8 to 3.2 is beyond temporary !
I'm not up to merging sea + cam, but I'll happily test any code anyone can lash
up, & if no one else has a card, I can even find a spare card ....
PS please CC email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, as I'm not on scsi@ (but can
subscribe if someone wants to send patches to try, hopefully ! )
