I am trying to get documentation for Adaptec AIC-7899 SCSI chip. All
I found was a 2-page document on Adaptec web-site, and Adaptec support
claim they have nothing else. Obviously a bigger manual must exist.
In particular, I want to see how to move data by DMA from the SCSI
drive raw partitions, using AIC-7899 to system memory. The DMA bursts
should be large and should end on a 256-byte boundary, so you see I
want to have fine control over the transfers.
I don't think this can be directly done with the Linux standard
distribution driver for AIC-7899, so I think I may have to modify the
driver, but I am not sure.
Does anybody know if the standard driver can/should be used for that?
By the way, this is for a wonderful non-for-profit project: the new
Search System for SETI (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence).
