     bt - Buslogic/Mylex MultiMaster SCSI host adapter driver

     device bt
     device scbus

     In /boot/device.hints:"isa""0x330"

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

     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.

     The bt driver supports the following BusLogic MultiMaster ``W'', ``C'',
     ``S'', and ``A'' series and compatible SCSI host adapters:

     +o   BusLogic BT-445S

     AMI FastDisk Host Adapters that are true BusLogic MultiMaster clones are
     also supported by the bt driver.

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

     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.
