NAMEisp - Qlogic based SPI and FibreChannel SCSI Host Adapters
SYNOPSISTo compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:
device scbus device isp
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:
DESCRIPTIONThis driver provides access to SPI or FibreChannel SCSI devices.
SPI supports initiator mode for Ultra SCSI and wide mode transactions for SCSI Ultra2 LVD (1080, 1280), and Ultra3 LVD (10160, 12160).
Fibre Channel supports initiator and target modes of FCP SCSI profile, utilizing Class 3 and Class 2 (2200 and later) connections. Support is available for Public and Private loops, Point-to-Point and Fabric connections.
FIRMWAREFirmware loading is supported if the ispfw(4) module is loaded. It is strongly recommended that you use the firmware available from ispfw(4) as it is the most likely to have been tested with this driver.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONSTarget mode support for Fibre Channel adapters may be enabled with the
BOOT OPTIONSThe following options are switchable by setting values in /boot/device.hints
- A hint value to disable loading of firmware ispfw(4).
- A hint value to ignore board NVRAM settings for. Otherwise use NVRAM settings.
- A hint value to set full duplex mode.
A hint value to select topology of connection.
Supported values are:
- Prefer loopback and fallback to point to point.
- Prefer point to point and fallback to loopback.
- Loopback only.
- Point to point only.
- This should be the full 64 bit World Wide Port Name you would like to use, overriding the value in NVRAM for the card.
- This should be the full 64 bit World Wide Node Name you would like to use, overriding the value in NVRAM for the card.
- A hint to override or set the Initiator ID or Loop ID. For Fibre Channel cards in Local Loop topologies it is strongly recommended that you set this value to non-zero.
- A hint to define default role for isp instance (0 -- none, 1 -- target, 2 -- initiator, 3 -- both).
- A hint value for a driver debug level (see the file /usr/src/sys/dev/isp/ispvar.h for the values.
- A hint to create specified number of additional virtual ports.
- This value says how long to wait in seconds after loop has gone down before giving up and expiring all of the devices that were visible. The default is 300 seconds (5 minutes). A separate (nonadjustable) timeout is used when booting to not stop booting on lack of FC connectivity.
- This value says how long to wait for devices to reappear if they (temporarily) disappear due to loop or fabric events. While this timeout is running, I/O to those devices will simply be held.
- This is the readonly World Wide Node Name value for this port.
- This is the readonly World Wide Port Name value for this port.

AUTHORSThe sysctl Cm net.inet.tcp.syncookies driver was written by An Matthew Jacob originally for NetBSD at NASA/Ames Research Center. Some later improvement was done by An Alexander Motin Aq Mt mav@FreeBSD.org .
BUGSThe driver currently ignores some NVRAM settings.
Fabric support for 2100 cards has been so problematic, and these cards are so old now that it is just not worth your time to try it.
