Fusion MPT device supportEdit

  • Option: FUSION
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • default n
  • Option: FUSION_SPI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
    • select FUSION
      SCSI HOST support for a parallel SCSI host adapters.
      List of supported controllers:
      LSI53C1020 LSI53C1020A LSI53C1030 LSI53C1035
  • Option: FUSION_FC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for FC
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
    • select FUSION
      SCSI HOST support for a Fiber Channel host adapters.
      List of supported controllers:
      LSIFC909 LSIFC919 LSIFC919X LSIFC929 LSIFC929X LSIFC929XL
  • Option: FUSION_SAS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SAS
    • depends on PCI && SCSIselect FUSION
    • select SCSI_SAS_ATTRS
      SCSI HOST support for a SAS host adapters.
      List of supported controllers:
      LSISAS1064 LSISAS1066 LSISAS1068 LSISAS1064E LSISAS1066E LSISAS1068E
  • Option: FUSION_MAX_SGE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Maximum number of scatter gather entries (16 - 128)"


    • depends on FUSION
    • default "128"

16 128


    • This option allows you to specify the maximum number of scatter- gather entries per I/O. The driver default is 128, which matches SCSI_MAX_PHYS_SEGMENTS. However, it may decreased down to 16. Decreasing this parameter will reduce memory requirements on a per controller instance.
  • Option: FUSION_CTL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fusion MPT misc device (ioctl) driver
    • depends on FUSION_SPI || FUSION_FC
      The Fusion MPT misc device driver provides specialized control of MPT adapters via system ioctl calls. Use of ioctl calls to the MPT driver requires that you create and use a misc device node ala: mknod /dev/mptctl c 10 240
      One use of this ioctl interface is to perform an upgrade (reflash) of the MPT adapter firmware. Refer to readme file(s) distributed with the Fusion MPT linux driver for additional details.
      If enabled by saying M to this, a driver named: mptctl will be compiled.
      If unsure whether you really want or need this, say N.
  • Option: FUSION_LAN
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fusion MPT LAN driver
    • depends on FUSION_FC && NET_FC
      This module supports LAN IP traffic over Fibre Channel port(s) on Fusion MPT compatible hardware (LSIFC9xx chips). The physical interface used is defined in RFC 2625. Please refer to that document for details.
      Installing this driver requires the knowledge to configure and activate a new network interface, "fc0", using standard Linux tools.
      If enabled by saying M to this, a driver named: mptlan will be compiled.
      If unsure whether you really want or need this, say N.
