Hi everyone,

In case you're still using my modified scsiinfo (my changes hadn't been
merged, last time I checked), there's a new version available (not much
has changed but it may make it easier for some using, esp if SFK 4.x is
installed): (md5)

MD5 Replicated here:
f6468267c8995170a1bfac41b4b7e8b8  scsiinfo-

There are still two major outstanding issues:

1) If you install patch 111095 (San Foundation Kit, verified with 4.3 -and
4.4 which was released a few days ago),
/usr/include/sys/fibre-channel/impl/fctl.h will be changed so the
fc_port_t structure now references an fc_rnid_t structure. Problem is that
fc_rnid_t is nowhere to be defined (Just opened service req 37097738 on
this subject). I have included an ugly workaround at the top of qlc.c
(fake an fc_rnid_t) so that it compiles and works. That is mostly harmless
( I guess ) since the fields I'm using in fc_port_t are located prior to
the use of fc_rnid_t in the memory representation of fc_port_t.

2) Although SUN has aknowledged that the C headers are missing for the
'qus' driver, they are nowhere to be found at this time. I was told of
internal bug reports that made mention of 'missing qus C headers' but
qusvar.h, qusreg.h and qusmail.h still haven't shown up in either a
SUNWhea patch or a SUNWqus patch. As a result of this, I cannot yet remove
the fake qus header files from the distribution until I can point people
to a patch with the real headers.. The consequence is that scsiinfo will
think that 'qus' is supported on platforms lower than Solaris 8 and will
not compile. Sorry about the inconvenience.. :(

Thanks for reading....
