          smartpqi is a SCSI driver for Microsemi Smart Family con-

        Supported BI]ioctl/() operations
          For compatibility with applications written for the cciss(4)
          and hpsa(4) drivers, many, but not all of the ioctl(2) oper-
          ations supported by the hpsa driver are also supported by
          the smartpqi driver.  The data structures used by these
          operations are described in the Linux kernel source file

               These operations all do exactly the same thing, which
               is to cause the driver to re-scan for new devices.
               This does exactly the same thing as writing to the
               smartpqi-specific host rescan attribute.

               This operation Returns the PCI domain, bus, device and
               function and "board ID" (PCI subsystem ID).

               This operation returns the driver version in four
               bytes, encoded as:

                   (major_version << 28) | (minor_version << 24) |
                           (release << 16) | revision

               Allows BMIC and CISS commands to be passed through to
               the controller.

        Boot options
               Disables support for device ID wildcards.  The default
               value is 0.

               Disables support for the controller's heartbeat check.
               This parameter is used for debugging purposes.  The
               default value is 0, leaving the controller's heartbeat

               This option enables support for exposing logical
               devices to the operating system before physical
               devices.  The default value is 0.

               This option enables disabling exposure of the virtual
               SEP to the host.  This is usually associated with
               direct attached drives.  The default value is 0.

        Device nodes
          Logical drives are accessed via the SCSI disk driver (sd),
          tape drives via the SCSI tape driver (st), and the RAID con-
          troller via the SCSI generic driver (sg), with device nodes
          named /dev/sd*, /dev/st*, and /dev/sg*, respectively.

        SmartPQI-specific host attribute files in BI]/sys
               The host rescan attribute is a write-only attribute.
               Writing to this attribute will cause the driver to scan
               for new, changed, or removed devices (e.g., hot-plugged
               tape drives, or newly configured or deleted logical
               drives) and notify the SCSI mid-layer of any changes
               detected.  Usually this action is triggered automati-
               cally by configuration changes, so the user should not
               normally have to write to this file.  Doing so may be
               useful when hot-plugging devices such as tape drives or
               entire storage boxes containing pre-configured logical

               The host version attribute is a read-only attribute.
               This attribute contains the driver version and the con-
               troller firmware version.

               For example:

     SMARTPQI(4)               (2019-10-10)                SMARTPQI(4)

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/version
                   driver: 1.1.2-126
                   firmware: 1.29-112

               The host lockup_action attribute is a read/write
               attribute.  This attribute will cause the driver to
               perform a specific action in the unlikely event that a
               controller lockup has been detected.  See OPTIONS above
               for an explanation of the lockup_action values.

               The driver_version attribute is read-only.  This
               attribute contains the smartpqi driver version.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/driver_version

               The firmware_version attribute is read-only.  This
               attribute contains the controller firmware version.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/firmware_version

               The model attribute is read-only.  This attribute con-
               tains the product identification string of the con-

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/model

               The serial_number attribute is read-only.  This
               attribute contains the unique identification number of
               the controller.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/serial_number

               The vendor attribute is read-only.  This attribute con-
               tains the vendor identification string of the

        SmartPQI-specific disk attribute files in BI]/sys
          In the file specifications below, c stands for the number of
          the appropriate SCSI controller, b is the bus number, t the
          target number, and l is the logical unit number (LUN).

               The raid_level attribute is read-only.  This attribute
               contains the RAID level of each logical drive.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_disk/4:0:0:0/device/raid_level
                   RAID 0

               The sas_address attribute is read-only.  This attribute
               contains the unique identifier of the disk.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_disk/1:0:3:0/device/sas_address

               The ssd_smart_path_enabled attribute is read-only.
               This attribute is for ioaccel-enabled volumes.  (Ioac-
               cel is an alternative driver submission path that
               allows the driver to send I/O requests directly to
               backend SCSI devices, bypassing the controller
               firmware.  This results in an increase in performance.
               This method is used for HBA disks and for logical vol-
               umes comprised of SSDs.)  Contains 1 if ioaccel is
               enabled for the volume and 0 otherwise.

               For example:

                   $ cat /sys/class/scsi_disk/1:0:3:0/device/ssd_smart_path_enabled

          The smartpqi driver was added in Linux 4.9.
