It's a 53c895/KZPCA, the one that ships with the XP1000.
I can't easily get the dmesg output from the siop driver. It doesn't
work well enough for me to get that far. It doesn't find any disks
so I end up with this:
siop0: scsi bus reset
WARNING: can't figure what device matches "SCSI 0 12 0 1 100 0 0"
use one of: ti0 fxp0 fxp1 fxp2 fxp3 fd0[a-h] tlp0 fpa0 tlp1 halt
root device: halt
syncing disks... done
Here is what the ncr driver says:
ncr0 at pci0 dev 12 function 0: ncr 53c895 fast40 wide scsi
ncr0: interrupting at dec 6600 irq 36
ncr0: minsync=25, maxsync=254, maxoffs=31, 128 dwords burst, large dma fifo
ncr0: single-ended, open drain IRQ driver, using on-chip SRAM
ncr0: restart (scsi reset).
The siop info in my previous message was the top of a dmesg printout
after going through a halt/reboot cycle. Where does that info get
saved? I assume it's a buffer in memory someplace. Who owns/allocates
that buffer? Can I easily make it bigger? (so I can get more info
from the previous attempt)
I'll see if I can hookup a RS232 cable and grab the printout that
