AHCI driver heads-up
I corrected a really stupid programming error yesterday that I had
made in the AHCI driver. Logical block addresses were not being
translated properly for non-NCQ I/O, resulting in disk corruption for
disks larger then 250G. Generally only disks behind a port multiplier
The bug has been fixed. Everyone using the new AHCI driver, and
particularly anyone using it with a port multiplier enclosure, should
The SILI driver had the same bug (also fixed) but since it can run NCQ
commands to targets behind a PM it is unlikely that anyone was affected.
Still, people using the new SILI driver should also update.
The SILI driver passed its 10-TB test. The AHCI driver is undergoing
a 10-TB test now and has passed so far. The test still has 3+ days
of run time to go.
