NAME
     bt - Buslogic/Mylex MultiMaster SCSI host adapter driver

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device isa
           device scbus
           device bt

           In /boot/device.hints:
           hint.bt.0.at="isa"
           hint.bt.0.port="0x330"

DESCRIPTION
     This driver provides access to the SCSI bus connected to a Buslogic/Mylex
     MultiMaster or compatible controller:

           BT-542B      ISA     30           SCSI-2 (542B revisions A - G)

     Tagged queueing is supported on 'W' series adapters, 'C' series adapters
     with firmware of rev 4.42 and higher, and 'S' series adapters with
     firmware of rev 3.35 and higher.

     Boards with certain firmware revisions may lock up under heavy load to
     certain devices, especially if tagged queueing is used.  Should you
     encounter a problem with your adapter, contact Mylex technical support
     and ensure you have the latest firmware for your controller.

HISTORY
     The bt driver first appeared in the 386BSD patch kit.

AUTHORS
     Julian Elischer wrote a driver for the Multimaster cards that appeared in
     the 386BSD patch kit.  The driver was rewritten by Justin T. Gibbs to
     take advantage of new board features and work with the CAM SCSI framework
     in FreeBSD 3.0.

     Special thanks to Leonard N. Zubkoff for writing such a complete and well
     documented Mylex/BusLogic MultiMaster driver for Linux.  Support in this
     driver for the wide range of MultiMaster controllers and firmware
     revisions, with their otherwise undocumented quirks, would not have been
     possible without his efforts.
