1887  [DG] Accept half healthy (and half unhealthy) indication from the
1888       SMART RETURN STATUS. This makes allowance for SAT implementations
1889       (e.g. via USB) that truncate the SCSI sense buffer to 18 bytes.
1890       This truncation causes the SMART RETURN STATUS indication to be
1891       half health or unhealthy. If the half indication is used, then
1892       warn if '-r ioctl' is given.

1957
1958  [CF] smartd: Add '-s ([cnr]/../.././..)' directive to run scheduled
1959       selective self-tests. Useful to perform full tests of large disks
1960       not running 24x7.
1961
1962  [CF] Allow to read local drive database entries from optional file
1963       '${sysconfdir}/smart_drivedb.h'.
1964       Add configure options '--enable-drivedb' and '--with-drivedbdir=DIR'.
1965       If specified, drive database is read from '${drivedbdir}/drivedb.h'.
1966       (default '${prefix}/share/smartmontools/drivedb.h'). This file

1978
1979  [CF] Add option '-d sat+TYPE' to use SAT with controllers which
1980       require option '-d TYPE'. Should work with '-d sat+megaraid,N'.
1981       As a side effect, '-d usbcypress+TYPE' is also supported.
1982
1983  [CF] Add parser to read drive database from a file. Add '-B' option
1984       to smartctl and smartd to specify database file name. File syntax
1985       is identical to the C/C++ syntax used to inialize the internal
1986       database array.
1987
1988  [CF] New syntax for drive database: Specify presets by strings
1989       with '-v' and '-F' options. Use empty strings instead of NULL.

2032       allocations, use STL containers and structs with value semantics
2033       instead. Remove old malloc/free based memory management helper
2034       functions unless old interface is still in use.
2035
2036  [CF] Linux: Cleanup device scan, remove name list, create objects directly.
2037
2038  [CF] Linux: Cleanup smart_device::open(), type strings are no longer used.
2039

2117       ALREADY appear in the SMART Self-test log.
2118
2119  [CF] Add missing 'const' and other minor fixes to prevent gcc warnings.
2120

2123
2124  [CF] Add configuration file for Doxygen.
2125
2126  [CF] Add new object oriented interface to access ATA and SCSI devices.
2127       smartctl and smartd are modified to use the new classes in
2128       'dev_interface.{h,cpp}'. The template class in 'dev_tunnelled.h'
2129       is used in 'scsiata.cpp'. The code in 'dev_ata_cmd_set.{h,cpp}'
2130       supports migration from old function 'ata_command_interface()'.
2131       All existing 'os_*.cpp' modules should still work without any changes.
2132       The required adapter classes from 'dev_legacy.cpp' are automatically
2133       added by configure if necessary.
2134
2135  [BA] Updated smartd and smartctl and smartd.conf man-page documentation
2136       to reflect support for Areca SATA RAID controller cards.
2137

2140
2141  [OB] Implemented device locking for Areca controllers in smartctl
2142
2143  [BA] Fixed selective self-test code.  Data structure revision number
2144       may be != 1 if no selective self-test has ever been run.  Host
2145       MUST set this value (at least at the first selective self-test
2146       instance).  Thanks to Curtis Stevens of WDC for clarification.
2147
2148  [MC] usbcypress autodetection
2149
2150  [BA] Starting to commit Areca code.  For now just smartctl.
2151       More changes and documentation coming soon.
2152       Need Areca firmware version 1.45 dated 10 June 2008 or later.
2153       May need changes in opening /dev/sg and file locking.
2154       Many thanks to Hank Wu!
2155
2156  [CF] smartd: Fix too small name buffer for 3ware with >100 devices.

2173
2174  [BA] Add missing CCISS cvs version tags to '-V' printouts.
2175
2176  [TS] Linux: Ensure the 3ware device nodes are created with a correct
2177       SELinux security context.
2178
2179  [AR] Add support for up to 128 devices on 3ware controllers.
2180
2181  [CF] C++: Added new main() with exception handlers, replaced
2182       exit(x) with throw(x), removed global variable 'exitstatus'.
2183       Necessary for future changes, because exit() does not call
2184       any destructors.
2185
2186  [SS] FreeBSD: plug file descriptor leak in smartd (only happens with
2187       CISS devices).  Reported by Vadim Ostranitsyn.
2188
2189  [SS] FreeBSD: allow smartctl to interact with SCSI /dev/pass devices,
2190       thus enabling it to work with RAID controllers that expose disks
2191       via these devices.  From scottl@ via FreeBSD ports.
2192
2193  [MC] Add usbcypress device support for smartctl.
2194
2195  [KS] INSTALL on Solaris: updated description to use C++ compiler.

2201       libraries for getaddrinfo().
2202
2203  [TS] smartd on Linux: remove forgotten return from deviceopen();
2204       SCSI device descriptors had the FD_CLOEXEC flag unset.
2205
2206  [CF] Added 'const' to avoid warning on depreciated string constant
2207       to 'char *' conversion.
2208
2209  [CF] autogen.sh: automake 1.10.1 is OK. Updated message texts.
2210
2211  [BA] removed smartmontools.spec file (now in CVS Attic).  This
2212       was not being used by RH or FC anyhow, and was out of
2213       date and not maintained.
2214
2215  [BA] smartd on Linux: sets FD_CLOEXEC on the opened device file
2216       descriptor.  The descriptor is otherwise leaked to other
2217       applications (mail sender) which may be considered a security
2218       risk and may result in AVC messages on SELinux-enabled systems.
2219       Thanks to: Tom�metana" <tsmetana@redhat.com>.
2220
2221  [BA] smartd: when sending email, to gather information about the
2222       host for the body of the email, eliminate gethostbyname()
2223       in favor of the IPv6-friendly function getaddrinfo() if the
2224       latter is available.  Info may be found here
2225       http://udrepper.livejournal.com/16116.html
2226       and here
2227       http://people.redhat.com/drepper/userapi-ipv6.html
2228       Thanks to: Tom�metana" <tsmetana@redhat.com>.
2229
2230       Smartmontools developers: please check that smartd still LINKS
2231       properly on your systems.
2232
2233  [BA] Fix ugly syntax bug in os_freebsd.cpp.  How did this go
2234       undetected for so long??
2235
2236SMARTMONTOOLS STABLE RELEASE 5.38 2008/03/10
2237
2238  [KS] Solaris/x86: modified configure.in for Sun's compiler.
2239
2240  [BA] smartd.initd.in addition from Erwan Velu <erwan@seanodes.com>
2241
2242  [BA] smartd fixes:
2243
2244       - On Linux, DEVICESCAN now automatically recognizes SATA devices
2245         behind libata, and SATA devices behind the Marvell driver, and
2246         treats them correctly.
2247
2248       - On Linux, a '-d sat' or '-d marvell' is automatically added
2249         if libata or the marvell driver are recognized behind a SCSI
2250         device type
2251
2252  [SS] (Maybe) fix attribute autosave in FreeBSD.
2253
2254  [SS] Major NetBSD-specific bugfixes:
2255       - handle actual SCSI and ATA errors and not only ioctl() errors;
2256       - set up I/O request properly for AUTO_OFFLINE and AUTOSAVE commands (inspired by
2257         similar change in os_freebsd.cpp);
2258       - handle AUTO_OFFLINE and AUTOSAVE like STATUS_CHECK (like os_linux.cpp does).
2259
2260  [GG] add kfreebsd gnu support to configure.in
2261
2262  [BA] Fix auto-offline support in FreeBSD.  Thanks to
2263       Cyrus Rahman <crahman@gmail.com> for the patch, and
2264       Eduard Martinescu for blessing it.
2265
2266  [DG] smartd re-opens "SCSI" devices as ATA devices if a SAT layer is
2267       detected (smartd bug IMO). In Linux this upsets scsi generic
2268       device nodes (e.g. /dev/sg0). Detect the re-open in os_linux.cpp
2269       and set the O_RDWR flag (ATA uses the O_RDONLY flag).
2270
2271  [CF] Drive database: Added Fujitsu MHW2 BH, Maxtor DiamondMax 17, 20, 21,
2272       Hitachi Travelstar 4K40, 5K120, 7K200, Deskstar 7K160, T7K500,
2273       T7K1000, Toshiba 1.8", Seagate Momentus 5400.3, 5400.3 ED, 7200.2,
2274       Barracuda 7200.11 and ES.
2275       Updated Toshiba 2.5", Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 and 7200.10.
2276       Added missing "(Hitachi )?" to Travelstar entries.
2277
2278  [CF] Drive database: Added several Western Digital Caviar and Scorpio
2279       drives, added Caviar RE EIDE family.
2280
2281  [CF] Drive database: Added Samsung P80 series with *-25 firmware.
2282
2283  [CF] Replaced 'head [-n] -1' by 'sed 1...' in autogen.sh to avoid
2284       portability issues.
2285
2286  [BA] Fixed autogen.sh script so that it uses 'grep -n 1' if 'grep -1'
2287       fails.  Needed for Mac OS X 10.4. Uck.
2288 
2289  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_STORAGE_PREDICT_FAILURE. This allows access
2290       to ATA SMART status and data if other calls do not work.
2291       Thanks to Jaroslaw Kowalski for pointing this out.
2292       Added support to use this function without admin rights.
2293
2294  [CF] Added ATA-8 revision 4c message text.
2295
2296  [CF] Added compiler.h to cciss_ioctl.h header check to prevent
2297       configure warning.
2298
2299  [SS] DragonFly support added (using os_freebsd code; untested).
2300
2301  [CF] smartctl: Fixed ATA identify byte swapping issue on big-endian
2302       platforms. This regression was introduced by the change for
2303       '-F swapid'. Thanks to Matthew Butch for bug report and testing.
2304
2305  [DG] SAT/SCSI: Improve SAT error processing code. Aborted commands from
2306       ATA devices (typically because SMART was disabled) were not being
2307       properly detected.
2308
2309  [GG] smartd: wait for the pid file to show up, return an error if it doesn't
2310
2311  [JH] fix bad return code (get STATUS) for QNX Part
2312
2313  [JH] initial porting to QNX Neutrino 6.3.2
2314       need at this time a prerelease devb-eide driver and libcam.so.2
2315       only tested for X86 Target, but devb-eide and lobcam.so.2 available for X86/ARM
2316       the officional driver coming soon with the next QNX release
2317       create two new source files os_qnxnto.[c..h]
2318
2319  [CF] smartd: Added option '-n, --no-fork' so that smartd works
2320       better with modern init methods. Thanks to Enrico Scholz
2321       for the patch from 2005-12-24.
2322
2323  [CF] Windows: Improved ATA/SCSI device type detection and
2324       DEVICESCAN. This also fixes a regression in 3ware DEVICESCAN.
2325
2326  [CF] smartd: Don't start self tests in first pass to avoid
2327       performance problems during boot.
2328       https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=192591
2329
2330  [CF] Fixed regression in SMART STATUS command on Win9x/ME.
2331
2332  [BA] Fixed 3ware issue with new controllers.  Documentation said
2333       that one could address up to 24 disks on a single controller,
2334       but in fact one was limited to 16 disks.  This is now fixed:
2335       up to 32 disks can be addressed.  Thanks to Adam Radford.
2336
2337       NOTE1: I have patched the Linux and FreeBSD code but not
2338       modified the Win32 code (it already supports up to 32 disks).
2339
2340       NOTE2: NOT TESTED ON LINUX.  Do not use this on a production box!
2341       I will remove this NOTE2 as soon as some positive test
2342       reports are recieved.
2343
2344       NOTE3: NOT TESTED ON FREEBSD. Do not use this on a production box!
2345       I will remove this NOTE3 as soon as some positive test
2346       reports are recieved.
2347
2348  [CF] Windows installer: Added explorer drive menu, CMD window,
2349       UBCD4Win plugin, smartd service update and other minor
2350       improvements.
2351
2352  [CF] Windows: Modified drive letter handling for explorer drive
2353       context menu: try SCSI if type is unknown, allow 'X:\.' syntax.
2354
2355  [CF] Windows: Added automatic ATA/SCSI device type detection and
2356       SCSI device scanning. The device names '/dev/sdX' and
2357       '/dev/pd<n>' now work for both ATA and SCSI disks.
2358
2359  [CF] smartctl: Added ability to parse '-r ataioctl,2' output from
2360       stdin ('-') and simulate the ATA commands for testing purposes.
2361
2362  [BA] SMART Attributes: added 187, 189, more accurate name for 190.
2363
2364  [CF] Windows: Added drive letters 'X:' as alternate disk device names.
2365
2366  [CF] smartctl: Added '-F swapid' to fix ATA identify string byte
2367       ordering. Added '-q noserial' to suppress serial number output.
2368
2369  [CF] Windows: Added '/dev/n?st<n>' as alternate device names for SCSI
2370       tapes. These names are also used by Cygwin's /dev emulation layer.
2371       Thanks to Corinna Vinschen (Cygwin project lead) for pointing this
2372       out.
2373
2374  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_SCSI_MINIPORT_*SMART* for commands not handled
2375       properly by SMART_IOCTL in disk class driver. This allows to use
2376       READ_LOG, WRITE_LOG and ABORT_SELFTEST even if the driver does not
2377       support ATA_PASS_THROUGH.
2378
2379  [CF] Added ATA-8 revision 4, fixed WRITE LOG '-r ioctl' output.
2380
2381  [BA] Updated smartctl and smartd so that they can be used with the latest
2382       3ware controllers which have 24 ports.  Also updated docs.
2383       Thanks to Tim Bell at CERN.
2384
2385  [GG] bit 4 in smartctl's return code might be set even when the dist check
2386       didn't return "DISK OK"
2387
2388  [CF] Drive database: added '-F samsung3' for Samsung P80 firmware
2389       BH100-35.
2390
2391  [SS] Applied patch from Dean Bennett to fix scheduled tests on
2392       Highpoint RAID controllers.
2393
2394  [BA] Added patch from Tejun Heo http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ide/13222/focus=13235
2395       to fix broken auto-offline and auto-save via libata.  Very clean fix: does it
2396       "the right way".  Thanks Tejun!
2397
2398  [CF] Added message text for ATA-7 self-test execution status 8
2399       ("... handling damage").
2400
2401  [GG] cciss: support more than 16 disks (patch taken from
2402       http://cciss.sourceforge.net/smartmontools_cciss_more_than_16_drives.patch
2403       and adjusted for smartd)
2404
2405  [DG] Solaris: [SCSI] add USCSI_RQENABLE flag to uscsi pass-through so
2406       sense buffer is made available. Expand reporting at this level.
2407
2408  [GK] Darwin: Improve handling of powered-down drives.
2409
2410  [SS] CCISS physical drive enumeration method changed (incompatibly).
2411
2412  [CF] Fixed smartd crash on missing '-s' directive argument.
2413
2414  [SS] Support CCISS on FreeBSD (kernel source is required until FreeBSD PR 109813
2415       is fixed).
2416
2417  [DG] SCSI/TAPE: some IBM tape drives don't react properly to a LOG
2418       SENSE with an allocation length of 4; work around for that case.
2419
2420  [CF] Applied Guido's patch to fix CCISS LUN array bounds check
2421       (openSUSE bug #239956) and remove trailing spaces in
2422       os_linux.cpp.
2423
2424  [CF] Fixed 64-bit compilation issue in SCT status struct.
2425
2426  [DG] SAT/SCSI: make real SCSI disks visible to DEVICESCAN in

2430
2431  [CF] Added ATA-8 draft revisions, added SCT status format 3.
2432
2433  [CF] Drive database: added Samsung T166 series.
2434
2435  [CF] ATA: Added ',p' option for '-t scttempint,N' to make
2436       setting persistent.
2437
2438  [CF] ATA: Added '-t scttempint,N' option to set SCT temperature
2439       logging interval.
2440
2441  [CF] ATA: Added '-l scttemp[sts,hist]' options to print disk
2442       temperature information and history table provided by
2443       SMART Command Transport (SCT) Feature Set.
2444
2445  [CF] ATA: Added '-t selective,{redo,next,cont}' commands to
2446       perform tests based on the last ranges still stored on
2447       disk. Added 'N+SIZE' and 'N-max' format for LBA range
2448       specification.
2449
2450  [CF] Added Min/Max Temperature format used in attribute 190 of
2451       recent Maxtor disks (DiamondMax 20).
2452
2453  [CF] Linux: Added check for <linux/cciss_ioctl.h> to allow build
2454       (without CCISS support) also when this file is missing.
2455
2456  [CF] Added -F samsung3 option to correct firmware bug reporting
2457       completed self-tests as still in progress. Thanks to Manfred
2458       Schwarb for the patch.
2459
2460  [CF] Added missing const specifiers (undetected by gcc 3.4 and 4.X)
2461       to fix compilation with gcc 2.X.
2462
2463  [CF] Linux: compile fix for SuSE, config.h must be included first.
2464
2465smartmontools 5.37 Experimental Release
2466
2467  [CF] Windows: Added alternate method for (limited) monitoring of
2468       3ware controllers by parsing the output of CLI or 3DM.
2469       Either "tw_cli" can be run internally ("/dev/tw_cli/cx/py"),
2470       or data can be read from standard input ("/dev/tw_cli/stdin")
2471       or clipboard ("/dev/tw_cli/clip").
2472
2473  [DG] Remove linux specific libata detect code; rely on general SAT
2474       code. smartd should now generate a sensible log message for
2475       ATA devices behind a SAT layer on all architectures.
2476
2477  [BA] Increased max line length MAXLINELEN for /etc/smartd.conf from
2478       128 to 256 characters to handle long strings in
2479       /dev/disk/by-id.  Thanks to Martin Krafft.
2480
2481  [PW] Drive database: added missing drives from Seagate Momentus 5400.2
2482       family
2483
2484  [BA] Finished Christian's fix (next item below) by removing
2485       LINUX_86_64 hack from configure.in.
2486
2487  [CF] Fixed inclusion of PRI?64 macros from inttypes.h.
2488
2489  [CF] Windows: Added WRITE LOG to support selective self tests.
2490
2491  [CF] Fix selective self test log revision number if '-T permissive'
2492       is specified (Tested with Samsung HD401LJ).
2493
2494  [CF] Windows: Fixed int64 printf format for MinGW runtime.
2495
2496  [PW] Drive database: added Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 family, Seagate
2497       Momentus 42 family, Maxtor DiamondMax 60 ATA 66 family, Maxtor

2508       of linux/compiler.h and include in os_linux.h if
2509       present.  Thanks to SB.
2510
2511  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN will now pick up SATA/SAT devices
2512       attached to a SCSI device tree via SAT translation.
2513       Note: this is a bit of a hack.  I will document it once
2514       I know if this needs to be Linux only or can have more
2515       general application.
2516
2517  [BA] Added a couple SATA commands to the tables -- thanks DG!
2518       Phil -- how about going through and systematically adding
2519       these new commands to atacmdnames.cpp?
2520
2521  [BA] Linux s86_64: get rid of some compiler warnings on
2522       x86_64 Linux systems.
2523

2582  [KS] C++ compile fixes for Solaris with a few cleanups.
2583
2584  [BA] C++ compile fixes for Darwin (thanks to CF)
2585
2586  [CF] Removed old *.c files (now in CVS Attic).
2587
2588  [CF] Added changes for C++ to platform independent and Windows
2589       related files.
2590
2591  [BA] Tagged last .c Version with PRE_MOVE_TO_CPP. Copied *.c,v
2592       to *.cpp,v in CVS repository to preserve history of source
2593       files. Removed sm5_Darwin repository.
2594
2595  [CF] smartctl: Added -n option to skip checks when disk is in
2596       low-power mode.
2597
2598  [CF] Windows: Added alternate system call for power state check
2599       because the PASS THROUGH calls may spin up the disk.
2600
2601  [CF] smartd: Modified power state logging to report state changes
2602       instead of standby condition.
2603
2604  [CF] smartd: Ignore -n directive on scheduled self tests.
2605
2606  [DG] [SCSI] Make start stop cycle counter log page decoding
2607       more robust
2608
2609  [DG] Modify smartctl (but not smartd) to detect probable ATA
2610       devices behind a SAT layer. In the absence of an explicit
2611       device type, change to device type 'sat'.
2612
2613  [DG] Add indication that controller (device) type has been
2614       explicitly set. Preparation for automatic detection of
2615       'sat' device type unless user specifies a device type.
2616
2617  [SS] NetBSD: Deliver strings from ata_identify_device properly
2618       on little- and big-endian platforms.
2619
2620  [BA] Added published ANSI ATA-7 spec to list of recognized ATA
2621       versions.
2622
2623  [BA] Code janitor: added missing header strings for '-V' option.
2624
2625  [DG] [SATA] Extend 'sat' device type to allow either 12 or 16 byte
2626       variant of the SAT ATA PASS THROUGH SCSI command. Syntax is
2627       '-d sat,<n>' where <n> can be 0, 12 or 16 . The ',<n>' part
2628       is optional. Currently defaults to 16 byte variant but that
2629       could be made platform or even device dependent.
2630
2631  [DG] [SATA] Add new 'sat' device type for SATA disks behind a
2632       SCSI to ATA Translation (SAT) Layer (SATL). Uses the ATA
2633       PASS THROUGH (16) SCSI command thence the generic SCSI
2634       passthrough for each platform.
2635
2636  [CF] Windows: Added script and make targets to create installer
2637       with NSIS (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/)

2639  [CF] Updated hostname and links for new SourceForge CVS service.
2640
2641  [CF] smartd: Added '-W' directive to track temperature changes
2642       and warn if temperature limits are reached.
2643
2644  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH (Win2003, XP SP2)
2645       for commands unsupported by SMART_IOCTL. Added device
2646       specific options to select subset and ordering of the ATA
2647       IOCTLs actually used. These options are specified as
2648       modifiers of the device name (/dev/hd[a-j]:[saic]+)
2649
2650  [CF] Windows: Added support for drives 4-7 (/dev/hd[e-h]) via
2651       SMARTVSE.VXD on Win9x/ME. Thanks to Dariusz Rzonca for
2652       patch and testing.
2653
2654  [DG] [SCSI/SATA linux] from lk 2.6.17 SATA disk identification in
2655       libata will change. Expand LibAta detection to see old
2656       identifier and new variant (VPD page 0x83).
2657
2658  [BA] Identified Attribute 190 for Western Digital disks.  This
2659       stores temperature in Celsius, just like Attribute 194.
2660       But it has a failure threshold set to correspond to the
2661       maximum design operating temperature of the disk, which
2662       is 55 Celsius on the WD800JD drives that I studied.
2663       So if this Attribute has 'failed
2664       in the past' this means that the maximum disk operating
2665       temperature has been exceeded.
2666
2667  [GK] Darwin: Add support for AHCI drivers found in Intel-based Macs.
2668
2669smartmontools 5.36 Stable Release

2697  [BA] Updated docs and error message to reflect Linux libata
2698       support for smartmontools starting with the 2.6.15 kernel
2699       series. Also init script support for the 'tinysofa' release.
2700
2701  [DG] [SCSI] Mask dpofua bit when changing mode pages. Fix failure
2702       of 'smartctl -l error'.

2708
2709  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Fixed memory leak in function calling
2710       IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH. Thanks to Fred Schmidt for the problem
2711       report.

2713  [CF] Cygwin: added cygrunsrv support and commands "install", "remove"
2714       and "status" to smartd.initd.
2715
2716  [SS] Fix runtime problems on big-engian NetBSD platforms (patch provided
2717       by Martin Husemann)

2729       multiple 3Ware cards, Power Check Support, and FreeBSD 6.x support.
2730       Thanks to Rudolf Cejka, Frank Behrens, and Jung-uk Kim.
2731
2732  [DG] Silence gcc 4.0.1 compile warning concerning the difference in
2733       "signedness" in pointer assignments. Changes to SCSI code
2734       and os_linux.c .
2735
2736  [PW] Additions to knowndrives table: added missing drive from Quantum
2737       Fireball Plus LM series, added QUANTUM BIGFOOT TS10.0A, added
2738       ExcelStor J680 and J880, added Western Digital Caviar RE Serial ATA
2739       series, added missing drives from Western Digital Caviar SE series,
2740       added Seagate Momentus 4200.2 series, added missing drives from

2755       IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH instead.
2756
2757smartmontools 5.34 Stable Release [NOTE: never officially released]
2758
2759  [CF] Cygwin & Windows smartd: Increased SCSI DEVICESCAN range
2760       from ASPI adapter 0-3 to 0-9. Added diagnostic messages.
2761
2762  [CF] Windows smartd: Added ability to run .bat files via '-M exec'
2763       directive.
2764
2765  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Added FreeConsole() after fork() to avoid hang
2766       of terminated shell console window.
2767
2768  [DG] [SCSI] Add code so 'smartctl -A' outputs the number of elements
2769       in the grown defect list. When this number is increasing a
2770       disk has problems. N.B. Similar logic should be added to smartd.
2771
2772  [CF] Windows smartd: Fixed event handling to allow start of another
2773       smartd process when service is already running. Useful for testing
2774       service configuration changes in debug mode.

2784       to knowndrives table.
2785
2786  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLP LM10.2 to knowndrives table.  Thanks to
2787       Mike Fleetwood for submitting the patch.
2788
2789  [KS] Solaris/SPARC: fixed not to disable automatic offline test and
2790       automatic save attributes incorrectly.  Thanks to Roy Badami.
2791
2792  [BA] Linux: smartd init script now recognizes 'trustix' distro.
2793
2794  [DG] [SCSI] Medium and hardware errors were slipping through
2795       unreported. Fix linux SCSI sense reporting via SG_IO ioctl.
2796
2797  [DG] [SCSI] Change lba of first failure in selftest output to
2798       decimal (was hex) to conform with ATA output.
2799
2800  [GK] smartd: Detect most self-test failures even if the hour counter
2801       has wrapped.
2802
2803  [BA] smartctl: list 'marvell' as option if user give invalid
2804       -d argument
2805
2806  [CF] Windows: fixed SCSI timeout handling to allow long timeouts
2807       for selftests.
2808
2809  [CF] Fixed buffer overflow issues in printone() and safe_vsnprintf()
2810       which results in crash on -V option (at least on Windows).
2811
2812  [DG] [SCSI] Add explicit timeouts to INQUIRY and REQUEST SENSE (that
2813       were missed in an earlier patch). Could have impacted freebsd.
2814
2815  [DG] When linux detects a sata_via_libata disk suggest that user try
2816       '-d ata' (rather then '-d libata). Anticipate kernel change.
2817
2818  [YD] Added OS/2 and eComStation platform support.
2819
2820  [PW] Added Seagate U4 family, Fujitsu MHJ and MHK families, Seagate
2821       Barracuda 5400.1, QUANTUM FIREBALLP KX27.3, QUANTUM FIREBALLP KA10.1,
2822       and ExcelStor J340 to knowndrives table.
2823
2824  [DG] [SCSI] After report of Hitachi IC35L073UCDY10 disks locking up
2825       on log page 0x7 (last n error events), check log page (and some
2826       others) is supported (via log page 0x0) before probing.
2827
2828  [CF] Added safe_v?snprintf() for platforms using v?snprintf()
2829       with non standard behaviour on overflow (Windows, old Linux)
2830
2831  [CF] smartd: Added message if check power mode spins up disk.
2832
2833  [CF] Windows: Added support for READ_LOG on WinNT4 using undocumented
2834       pseudo SCSI command via IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH.
2835
2836  [CF] smartd: Added ',q' option for '-n' directive to suppress 'skipping
2837       checks' log message. This prevents a laptop disk from spinning up
2838       due to this message. Thanks to Rob MacLachlan and Manfred Schwarb
2839       for pointing out problem & solution.
2840
2841  [CF] Windows: Added function get_os_version_str() to show OS flavor in
2842       copyright message.
2843
2844  [CF] Windows: Added function ata_identify_is_cached() to check for outdated
2845       SMART enabled bit in identify data.
2846
2847  [CF] Windows: Added fix to prevent linkage of smartd specific win32 modules
2848       to smartctl.
2849
2850  [PW] Added Fujitsu MPG3153AH, Hitachi Endurastar J4K20/N4K20 (formerly
2851       DK23FA-20J), Seagate Momentus family, and Maxtor Fireball 3 family

2855       Western Digital Caviar WDxxxAA/WDxxxBA drives to knowndrives table.
2856
2857  [CF] Windows: Added ATA check power mode for smartd -n directive.
2858
2859  [CF] Windows: Fixed use of new service status flag which causes hang
2860       of smartd service on WinNT4.
2861
2862  [CF] Windows: Fixed error checking of IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH (used
2863       for READ_LOG on 2000/XP). Added some diagnostic messages on
2864       -r ataioctl[,2]. Thanks to Manfred Schwarb for bug report and testing.
2865
2866  [BA] Fixed code bug that made it impossible to enable SMART on
2867       disks with failing health status.  This would happen if the
2868       os_*.c author made STATUS and STATUS_CHECK work the same way.
2869       I have corrected this at a higher level; we now handle the
2870       case where STATUS and STATUS_CHECK are identical without
2871       issues.
2872
2873  [LW] Make os_linux.c/marvell_command_interface() always return 0 on STATUS.
2874       Needed for a disk having bad SMART status.
2875
2876  [CF] smartctl: Added drive family printing.
2877
2878  [CF] autogen.sh: Allow automake 1.9, added message if automake
2879       version is unknown.
2880
2881  [BA] smartctl: use locale-specific separators for printing disk
2882       capacity.  Also use AC_CHECK_HEADERS not AC_CHECK_HEADER in
2883       configure.in.
2884
2885  [BA] clean-up of #include structure so that -V options to smartd
2886       and smartctl work correctly.  Please, don't #include header
2887       files into other header files.
2888
2889smartmontools 5.33 Experimental Release
2890
2891  [BA] smartctl: ATA disks, if SMART ATTRIBUTE THRESHOLDS page has ID
2892       errors with some Attributes having NULL IDs, print Attribute
2893       info anyway (but issuing a warning to the user).
2894
2895  [DG] [SCSI] Decode Last n error events log page; decode track following
2896       and positioning errors [Hitachi]
2897
2898  [EM] FreeBSD: another tweak, __packed__ introduced in Version 5.0040
2899
2900  [EM] Cleaner tweak of fixes for FreeBSD 4.x.
2901
2902  [EM] Fix compilation errors under FreeBSD 4.x, as it is still using
2903       and old GCC
2904
2905  [EM] Remove 3ware/FreeBSD specific files and just include pieces we need
2906
2907  [DG] Add logic in smartd to detect 3ware, Marvell controllers and SATA
2908       disks behind an ATA-SCSI simulator (in Linux). If specific device
2909       types are not given and they are picked in a general SCSI device
2910       scan then warn and skip.
2911
2912  [GG] insert correct path to smartd into smartd's init script
2913
2914  [BA] Changed all default paths in documentation to reflect /usr/local as
2915       default path prefix.  This affects on-line man pages, primarily.
2916 
2917  [DS] Added support for OpenBSD
2918
2919  [BA] Added another environment variable SMART_FULLMESSAGE set by
2920       the smartd mailing feature, and modified examplescripts/Example1
2921       to illustrate it.
2922
2923  [BA] Fixed potentially misleading messages of the form:
2924       XXX failed: success
2925
2926  [DG] emit warning if SATA disk detected using libata in Linux; then exit
2927
2928  [PW] Added Seagate U10 family, Hitachi Travelstar 7K60, Fujitsu MHR2020AT,
2929       and QUANTUM FIREBALLP AS20.5 to knowndrives table.
2930
2931  [DG] Detect 3ware and Marvell controllers from SCSI INQUIRY vendor string
2932       and suggest usage of appropriate '-d' argument in smartctl.
2933
2934  [LW] Tested the RELEASE_5_33_WITH_MARVELL_SUPPORT branch on
2935       actual Marvell 88SX5041 hardware, with success.
2936       Merged into HEAD.
2937
2938  [BA] Fixed nasty DEVICESCAN bug
2939
2940  [BA] Checked in RELEASE_5_33_WITH_MARVELL_SUPPORT branch with
2941       some Marvell support.
2942
2943  [BA] Additional modifications of Ed's controller scheme.  Fixed
2944       broken 3ware support under linux, problems with scanning
2945       devices in smartd, and other small problems.
2946
2947  [CF] Added make targets to build formatted man pages (htmlman, txtman),
2948       Windows distribution (dist-win32) and MSVC6 config.h (config-vc6).
2949
2950  [EM] Minor change to FreeBSD inclusion of 'twe' include files.  Add
2951       code to check if they exising in /usr/include/sys to use those
2952       in preference to ones added here
2953
2954  [EM] Very preliminary support attempt for 3Ware controllers under
2955       FreeBSD. Also, switched 'escalade_type/escalade_port' to
2956       'controler_type/controller_port' and moved away from
2957       'tryata/tryscsi' to using new 'controller*' variables to
2958       determine which controller type (ATA/SCSI/3Ware) to use.
2959
2960  [GK] Added initscript support for Darwin.
2961
2962  [CF] Windows smartd: Added ability to run smartd as a windows service,
2963       including new commands "smartd install ..." and "smartd remove"
2964       to install and remove the service registry entry.
2965
2966  [BA] smartd: warn user if -s regexp regular expression contains
2967       characters other than 0123456789.*()|+?[-]{}:=SLCO since such
2968       characters are 'suspicous' and may indicate a poorly formed
2969       regexp.  Extended regular expression gurus: can this list be
2970       reduced somewhat?
2971
2972  [CF] Fixed bug in Windows smartd: Missing close of config file when
2973       configuration is reloaded by smartd daemon.
2974
2975  [CF] Windows smartd: Added mail warning feature using the "Blat"
2976       (http://blat.sourceforge.net/) mailer as a default.
2977
2978  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 5120 Ultra ATA 33 series and TOSHIBA
2979       MK3017GAP to knowndrives table.
2980

2985       updates: ATA/ATAPI-7 T13 1532D revision 4a and ATA/ATAPI-6 published,
2986       ANSI INCITS 361-2002
2987
2988  [PW] Added Hitachi Travelstar 5K80 family and Fujitsu MHTxxxxAH family to
2989       knowndrives table.
2990
2991  [EM] Fix up compilation under FreeBSD < 5.x
2992
2993  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALL EX3.2A and missing Western Digital Caviar SE
2994       drives to knowndrives table.
2995
2996  [BA] Modified Hitachi Travelstar 80GN family regexp in drive database.
2997       Thanks to [GK/CF] for problem & solution.
2998
2999  [GK] Added os_darwin.[ch]
3000
3001  [PW] Added the following drives to the knowndrives table: IBM Travelstar
3002       48GH, 30GN, and 15GN family; IBM Deskstar 37GP and 34GXP family;
3003       Western Digital WDC WD272AA; Maxtor DiamondMax D540X-4D family;
3004       TOSHIBA MK2016GAP, MK2018GAP, MK2018GAS, MK2023GAS; and
3005       QUANTUM FIREBALL ST3.2A
3006
3007  [BA] smartd/smarctl now print build HOST/OS information as part
3008       of startup slogan.  This should make it slightly easier to
3009       read bug reports from users.
3010
3011  [RZ] Fixed the DEVICESCAN to do what it was supposed to do - give
3012       error message unless scanning is in progress. 
3013
3014  [BA] Update documentation to describe 3ware character devices. Better
3015       error detection for missing/malfunctioning devices behind 3ware
3016       controllers. Now pack 3ware ioctl structures explicitly.
3017
3018  [BA] For ATA devices that support LBA mode, print capacity as part
3019       of smartctl --info
3020
3021  [RZ] Made DEVICESCAN quiet about non-existing devices unless debug
3022       is on.
3023
3024  [DG] treat "unit attention" SCSI warning as try again in some contexts
3025       (test unit ready and mode sense)
3026
3027  [BA] on drives that store max/min rather than min/max, get order
3028       correct in printing temp.
3029
3030  [BA] fixed typo in 'smartctl -h' output.  Thanks to Gabor Z. Papp.
3031
3032  [BA] linux: clean-up to 3ware/AMCC support; dynamically create
3033       or fix /dev/tw[ae][0-15] device node entries if they don't
3034       exist or are incorrect. One can now use the character devices
3035       /dev/twe[0-15] OR /dev/sd? for 3ware 6000/7000/8000 series
3036       cards.  One must use /dev/twa[0-15] for 3ware 9000 series cards.
3037       Note that selective self-tests now work via /dev/tw[ae] devices.
3038       Next step: documentation.
3039
3040  [BA] linux: experimental "support" for 3ware/AMCC 9000 series
3041       controllers that use the 3w-9xxx driver.  This will be in a
3042       state of flux for a few days.  Note that this requires the
3043       character interface /dev/twa[0-15].
3044
3045  [DG] linux: extend general SCSI OS interface to use the SG_IO ioctl. If
3046       not available, use the older SCSI_IOCTL_SEND_COMMAND ioctl.
3047
3048  [KS] Solaris/x86: fixed system identification problem in configure
3049       script.  Thanks to Stuart Swales.

3054
3055  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Added missing ASPI manager initialization
3056       with GetASPI32SupportInfo(). Thanks to Nikolai SAOUKH for pointing
3057       this out and providing a patch.
3058
3059  [BA] modified smartd init script to work on whitebox (thanks to
3060       Michael Falzon)
3061
3062  [BA] removed (reverted) additional Attribute definitions from
3063       http://smart.friko.pl/attributes.php.  All (or most?) of these
3064       appear to be return code values for the WD Digital Life Guard Utility.
3065
3066  [PW] Added Seagate Medalist 17242, 13032, 10232, 8422, and 4312 to
3067       knowndrives table.  Added missing Seagate U Series 5 drives.
3068
3069  [PW] Added the following QUANTUM models to knowndrives table:
3070       FIREBALL EX6.4A, FIREBALLP AS10.2, FIREBALLP AS40.0, FIREBALL CR4.3A,
3071       FIREBALLP LM15, FIREBALLP LM30, and FIREBALLlct20 30

3073  [PW] Added missing Western Digital Protege drives to knowndrives table.
3074
3075  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 40 ATA 66 series and DiamondMax 40 VL Ultra
3076       ATA 100 series to knowndrives table.
3077
3078  [PW] Added the following Hitachi/IBM drives to knowndrives table:
3079       HITACHI_DK14FA-20B, Travelstar 40GNX series, Travelstar 4LP series,
3080       and Travelstar DK23XXB series.  Added the missing Travelstar 80GN
3081       drives.
3082
3083  [PW] Added Fujitsu MPB series and MPG series to knowndrives table.  Added
3084       the missing Fujitsu MHSxxxxAT drives.
3085
3086  [KS] Solaris: added workaround for dynamic change of time-zone.
3087
3088  [KS] Solaris: fixed problem that autogen.sh cannot detect absence of
3089       auto* tools.
3090
3091  [BA] smartd: added time-zone bug information to man page.
3092       Reverted CF code for _WIN32 case.
3093
3094  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Added better error messages on IDE/ATA device
3095       open error.
3096
3097  [BA] added additional Attribute definitions from
3098       http://smart.friko.pl/attributes.php
3099
3100  [BA] smartd: reworked TimeZone bug workaround so it is only invoked
3101       for glibc.  Note: this might not be right -- a similar bug may
3102       exist in other platform's libcs.
3103
3104  [DG] SCSI smartmontools documentation updated [2004/5/6]. See:
3105       http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/smartmontools_scsi.html
3106
3107  [CF] Windows: Fixed reset of TZ=GMT in glibc timezone bug workaround.
3108
3109smartmontools 5.31
3110
3111  [DG] move SCSI device temperature and start-stop log page output
3112       (smartctl) into --attributes section (was in --info section).
3113
3114  [GG] change default installation location to /usr/local
3115
3116  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Fixed crash on access of SCSI devices after fork().
3117
3118  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4018GAS and the following Maxtor drive families
3119       to knowndrives table: DiamondMax D540X-4G, Fireball 541DX,
3120       DiamondMax 3400 Ultra ATA, DiamondMax Plus 6800 Ultra ATA 66.
3121
3122  [PW] Added missing Maxtor DiamondMax 16, DiamondMax D540X-4K, and
3123       DiamondMax Plus 45 Ulta ATA 100 drives to knowndrives table.
3124
3125  [PW] Added ExcelStor J240, Hitachi Travelstar 80GN family, Fujitsu
3126       MHTxxxxAT family, and IBM Deskstar 25GP and 22GXP families to
3127       knowndrives table.
3128
3129  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Added workaround for missing SIGQUIT via keyboard:
3130       To exit smartd in debug mode, type CONTROL-C twice.
3131
3132  [BA] smartctl: printing of the selective self-test log is now
3133       controlled by a new option: -l selective
3134
3135  [BA] Added entries for Samsung firmware versions -25 to -39 based
3136       on latest info about firmware bug fixes.
3137
3138  [PW] Added Seagate U Series X family, Seagate U8 family, and Seagate
3139       Medalist 8641 family to knowndrives table.
3140
3141  [CF] smartd: Added exit values 5/6 for missing/unreadable config file.
3142
3143  [BA] smartd: now monitor the Current Pending Sector count (Attribute 197)
3144       and the Offline Pending Sector Count (Attribute 198).  Log a
3145       warning (and send an email, if so configured) if the raw count
3146       is nonzero.  These are controlled by new Directives: -C and -U.
3147       Currently they are enabled by default.
3148
3149  [CF] Added option -c FILE, --configfile=FILE to smartd to specify
3150       an alternate configuration FILE or '-' for standard input.
3151
3152  [KS] configure.in now searches for -lnsl and -lsocket for Solaris.
3153
3154  [CF] Win32/native smartd: Added thread to combine several syslog output
3155       lines into one single event log entry.
3156
3157  [CF] Win32 smartd: Added DEVICESCAN for SCSI/ASPI devices.
3158
3159  [GG] Use gethostbyname() the get the DNS domain since getdomainname()
3160       returns the NIS domain when sending mails from smartd.
3161
3162  [GG] smartd.init.in: pass smartd_opts to smartd on startup, read distribution
3163       specific configuration files if found
3164
3165  [SS] smartctl: added NetBSD support for Selective Self-tests.
3166
3167  [BA] smartd.conf example configuration file now has all examples
3168       commented out except for 'DEVICESCAN'.
3169
3170  [CF] Win32/native smartd: Added ability to display warning "emails"
3171       as message box by "-m msgbox" directive. With "-m sysmsgbox",
3172       a system modal (always on top) message box is shown.
3173
3174  [BA] smartctl: printing of self-test log for disks that support
3175       Selective self-testing now shows the status of the (optional)
3176       read-scan after the selective self test.  Also, changed format
3177       in printing self-test log to print failing LBA in base 10 not
3178       base 16 (more compatible with kernel error messages).  Also,
3179       in printing SMART error log, print timestamps in format
3180       days+hours+minutes+seconds.
3181
3182  [CF] Win32 smartd: Added ability to log to stdout/stderr
3183       (-l local1/2). Toggling debug console still works
3184       if stdout is redirected.
3185
3186  [BA] smartctl: selective self-test log, print current status
3187       in a  more detailed way.  Allow writing of selective self-test
3188       log provided that no other self-test is underway.
3189
3190  [BA] Linux: eliminated dependency on kernel tree hdreg.h.
3191
3192  [BA] smartctl: -l selftest option now prints Selective self-test
3193       log in addition to the normal self-test log.
3194       Added additional options (-t pending, -t afterselect) to
3195       control remaining Selective Self-test capabilities.  Tested
3196       with several Maxtor disks. Modified error message printing
3197       so that munged option messages print at the end not the
3198       start of output.
3199
3200  [CF] Added daemon support to Win32 native version of smartd.
3201       The daemon can be controlled by commands similar to initd
3202       scripts: "smartd status|stop|reload|restart|sigusr1|sigusr2".
3203
3204  [CF] Added minor support for option "-l local[0-7]" to Win32 native
3205       (not Cygwin) version of smartd. If specified, the log output
3206       is written to file "./smartd[1-7]?.log" instead of event log.
3207
3208  [BA] Added Selective Self-test to smartctl (-t selective,M-N).
3209       Currently only supported under Linux; Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD
3210       and Windows developers must add WRITE LOG functionality to
3211       os_*.c
3212
3213  [BA] Added workaround for an annoying glibc bug: if you change
3214       timezones, (eg, flying with a laptop from USA to Europe)
3215       localtime() does not notice this in a running
3216       executable, so time that appears in the system log (syslog!)
3217       will be incorrect.  See
3218       http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=48184
3219       for additional examples of this bug.
3220
3221  [DG] Set explicit timeouts for SCSI commands (most default to 6 seconds).
3222       Previously a 0 second timeout was meant to be interpreted as a
3223       default timeout but the FreeBSD port had a problem in this area.
3224
3225  [CF] Fixed un-thread-safe exit signal handler for Win32
3226
3227  [BA] Fixed un-thread-safe exit signal handler pointed out
3228       by CF.
3229
3230  [BA] Changed configure script to eliminate warnings under
3231       Solaris from sys/int_type.h conflicts with int64.h
3232       Added header files for umask to smartd.c.
3233
3234  [BA] Man page format change from Werner LEMBERG.  " " changed to \&
3235
3236  [CF] Added os_win32/syslogevt.* event message file tool for Win32
3237       smartd (native+cygwin). May also be useful for other cygwin
3238       programs writing to syslog().
3239
3240  [CF] Added Win32 version of smartd
3241
3242  [CF] Merged RELEASE_5_26_WIN32_BRANCH
3243
3244  [BA] Made some changes to man page markup suggested by
3245       Richard Verhoeven to work around bugs in man2html.
3246       Tested not to break anything under Linux and Solaris.
3247
3248  [CF] Moved PrintOut() from utility.c to smart{ctl,d}.c to avoid
3249       syslog() output of smartctl.
3250
3251  [BA] Grew worried that some time-zone names could be very long (eg,
3252       Mitteleuropaische Zeit) and put date string lengths into a
3253       single macro in utility.c
3254
3255  [EM] Updated os_freebsd.c to handle older versions of FreeBSD in a
3256       more appropriate/obvious fashion.
3257
3258  [EM] Modified autogen.sh as FreeBSD installs automake 1.7 as
3259       'automake17' and NOT 'automake-1.7'
3260
3261smartmontools 5.30
3262
3263  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLlct15 30, QUANTUM FIREBALLlct20 40, and
3264       Maxtor 6Y060P0 (DiamondMax Plus 9 60GB) to knowndrives table.
3265
3266  [PW] Added Maxtor MaXLine II family to knowndrives table (thanks to
3267       Brett Russ for submitting the patch).
3268
3269  [BA] Added remaining read/write commands to detailed list of
3270       error log commands that have text descriptions of problem
3271       printed.  For commands that support it, print number of failed
3272       sectors at problem LBA.
3273
3274  [BA] Made SuSE section of smartd init script more SuSE 9 compatible.
3275       Thanks to Hans-Peter Jansen.
3276
3277  [CF] Windows smartd: Added IDE/ATA device scan
3278       Added windows device names to smartctl.8.in, smartd.8.in
3279   
3280  [BA] smartctl/smartd: user-provided '-F samsung' and '-F samsung2'
3281       command line options/Directives did NOT over-ride preset values
3282       unless user specified '-P ignore'.  Now they will always over-ride
3283       preset values from the database.
3284
3285  [BA] Added error decoding for a few more READ and WRITE commands.
3286
3287  [PW] Added Maxtor MaXLine Plus II, Western Digital Caviar SE (Serial ATA)
3288       series, Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 series, and Ultra ATA 66 models of
3289       the Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40 series to knowndrives table.
3290
3291  [BA] Added Maxtor Diamondmax 250 GB drives to database.  Note that
3292       these model numbers are not listed in Maxtor documentation, but
3293       they exist.
3294
3295  [BA] Removed the 'contact developers' phrase from the Samsung disk
3296       warning messages.
3297
3298  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK2017GAP, IBM Deskstar 14GXP and 16GP series,
3299       Fujitsu MPC series, Seagate Barracuda ATA III family, and missing
3300       Seagate Barracuda U Series drives to knowndrives table
3301
3302  [BA] smartd: wrong loglevel for message: Configuration file
3303       /etc/smartd.conf parsed.  Changed to LOG_INFO from LOG_CRIT.
3304       Thanks to  Emmanuel CHANTREAU for the report.
3305
3306  [CF] Checked in development version of windows code base.
3307
3308smartmontools 5.29 (note: there was NO 5.28 release)
3309
3310  [BA] smartd: configure script did not set correct directory to search for
3311       smartd.conf based on --prefix argument to ./configure.  Thanks to
3312       GG for identifying the problem and fix.
3313
3314  [BA] make clean now removes man pages (generated from *.in) files as well
3315       as object files.
3316
3317  [EM] Correct copying of sense data in FreeBSD SCSI implementation. Thanks
3318       to Sergey Svishchev for noticing the bug.
3319
3320  [BA] On solaris, wrong warning message if no ATA support.  Warning message
3321       concerns 3ware controller, not ATA.
3322
3323  [SS] Added SCSI support for NetBSD.
3324
3325  [BA] on big-endian linux machines, fixed interpretation of HDIO_GET_IDENTITY
3326       to correctly identify ATAPI bit (was byte swapped).  This should
3327       eliminate some SYSLOG noise if user queries a packet device (eg, CD
3328       ROM or DVD reader).
3329
3330  [PW] Removed warning for IBM Deskstar 40GV & 75GXP series drives with
3331       A5AA/A6AA firmware.  Thanks to Gerald Schnabel.
3332
3333  [PW] Added Toshiba TOS MK3019GAXB SUN30G to knowndrives table
3334
3335  [PW] Added Western Digital Caviar AC12500, AC24300, AC25100, AC36400,
3336       and AC38400 to knowndrives table
3337
3338  [BA] When printing ATA error log, print the LBA at which READ
3339       or WRITE commands failed.
3340
3341  [BA] Changed syntax of error message in smartctl
3342
3343  [BA] Added versioning info (-V options to smartd/smartctl) for
3344       Solaris ATA module.
3345
3346smartmontools 5.27
3347
3348  [KS] Added ATA/IDE support for Solaris/SPARC (ATA/IDE not yet for
3349       Solaris/x86).
3350
3351  [BA] 3ware controllers: documented that one can monitor any of the
3352       physical disks from any of the 3ware /dev/sd? logical devices.
3353       Better warnings if querying a disk that does not exist.
3354
3355  [PW] Added Hitachi Travelstar DK23DA series, Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40
3356       series, Western Digital Caviar WDxxxAA, WDxxxBA, and WDxxxAB series
3357       to knowndrives table
3358
3359  [BA] missing 'pragma pack' on ATA IDENTIFY DEVICE structure may have
3360       caused odd or incorrect results on 64-bit machines.
3361
3362  [BA] smartctl/smartd allow inspection of self-test and error logs even
3363       if disk firmware claims that these don't exist.  This is needed
3364       for some Maxtor disks whose firmware does not indicate log support
3365       even though the disk DOES support it.
3366
3367  [BA] Improved porting instructions and documentation in os_generic.c
3368
3369  [PW] Add Western Digital Caviar WD136AA and SAMSUNG SP40A2H (RR100-07
3370       firmware) to knowndrives table.
3371
3372  [EM] FreeBSD: remove extra definition of FreeNonZero
3373
3374  [BA] smartctl: the -q silent option was printing output for some
3375       error conditions.  Fixed.  Will rename relevant variables to help
3376       avoid these errors in the future.
3377
3378  [SS] NetBSD port added.
3379
3380  [BA] more sensible error messages for devfs and devfs-like systems.
3381       Instead of saying that the DIRECTORY does not exist, say that
3382       the DEVICE does not exist.
3383
3384  [BA] smartd: added -n Directive, to prevent disk spin-up depending
3385       upon the power mode (SLEEP, STANDBY, or IDLE).
3386
3387  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 20 VL series, Fujitsu MPF series,
3388       Maxtor DiamondMax 36 series, Maxtor DiamondMax 4320 series, and
3389       Maxtor DiamondMax 536DX series to knowndrives table.
3390
3391  [BA] many warning messages now give the file name AND VERSION
3392
3393  [BA] smartd: when the user provides multiple address recipients
3394       to the '-m' Directive in a comma-delineated list, the commas
3395       are stripped out before passing the list of addresses to the
3396       mailer program. (Thanks to Calin A. Culianu for pointing this out
3397       and providing a patch.)
3398
3399  [BA] smartd: when the '-M exec path' Directive is used, any stdout OR
3400       stderr output from the executable "path" is assumed to indicate a
3401       problem, and is echoed to SYSLOG.
3402
3403  [BA] Added all missing IBM/Hitachi Deskstar 180GXP models to knowndrives
3404       table.
3405
3406  [PW] Added some missing IBM/Hitachi Deskstar 120GXP models to knowndrives
3407       table.
3408
3409  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 14GS to knowndrives table.
3410
3411  [PW] Modified knowndrives table to match entire Hitachi Travelstar
3412       DK23BA and DK23EA series of drives (thanks to Norikatsu Shigemura
3413       for submitting the patch).
3414
3415  [PW] Added some missing Fujitsu MPE series drives to knowndrives table.
3416
3417  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4019GAX, TOSHIBA MK6409MAV, and QUANTUM
3418       FIREBALLlct15 20 to knowndrives table.
3419
3420  [EM] Fixup example command output for FreeBSD
3421
3422  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 80 family to knowndrives table.
3423
3424  [EM] Catch up FreeBSD code to switch PROJECTHOME to PACKAGE_HOMEPAGE
3425       macros.
3426
3427  [BA] smartd: now watches stdout/stderr when trying to run mail, mailx
3428       or mail warning script, and reports any output to SYSLOG.  This
3429       gives a clearer error message if something is wrong.
3430
3431  [BA] smartd: Solaris init script modified to accomodate grep that
3432       lacks '-q' quiet option.  Also check for running process to kill
3433       on stop.
3434
3435  [PW] Added some missing Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 and 7200.7 Plus drives
3436       to knowndrives table.
3437
3438  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 60 family and Seagate U Series 5 20413
3439       to knowndrives table.
3440
3441  [BA] smartd: under Solaris, made default mailer be 'mailx' not
3442       'mail', since Solaris 'mail' does not accept a '-s' argument.
3443       A workaround for Solaris users of earlier versions is to
3444       have '-M exec /bin/mailx' in their smartd.conf config file.
3445
3446  [DG] some SCSI controllers don't like odd length transfers so make
3447       sure LOG SENSE transfers are rounded up to an even number when
3448       and odd length is reported (i.e. there is a double fetch, the
3449       first to find the length, the second gets the data)
3450
3451  [BA] smartd man pages: under Solaris, correct section numbers in the
3452       'See also' section.
3453
3454  [KS/BA] smartd man page: describe how to set Solaris syslog.conf
3455       file to catch all messages.  Give correct Solaris SYSLOG default
3456       path /var/adm/messages in man pages.
3457
3458  [BA] smartd: incorporated Debian startup script submitted by user.
3459
3460  [BA] smartctl: modified printing of self-test log entry number.  Seagate
3461       firmware can leave 'holes' in the self-test log while a test is
3462       actually running.  We now print entry numbers consistently in this
3463       case, not assuming that entries are contiguous.
3464
3465  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALL CX10.2A and Western Digital Caviar AC23200L
3466       to knowndrives table.
3467
3468  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLlct20 20 to knowndrives table.
3469
3470  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus D740X family to knowndrives table.
3471
3472  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 32GH, 30GT, and 20GN family to knowndrives
3473       table.
3474
3475  [BA] Slackware init script modified to search for /etc/slackware-version
3476       rather than /etc/slackware-release.
3477
3478  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA II family and TOSHIBA MK4019GAXB to
3479       knowndrives table.
3480
3481  [GG] explain howto use autoreconf in autogen.sh
3482
3483  [KS] Makefile.am/configure.in: changed manual page sections for
3484       Solaris.
3485
3486  [BA] smartd: reduced number of scheduled self-test messages if
3487       test already run in current hour.
3488
3489  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 family to knowndrives table.
3490
3491  [BA] linux: check for linux/hdreg.h.  If it's there, use it. If
3492       not, provide the necessary definitions ourselves.
3493
3494  [PW] Removed warning for IBM Deskstar 40GV & 75GXP series drives
3495       with TXAOA5AA firmware
3496
3497  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 25GS, 18GT, and 12GN family to knowndrives
3498       table.
3499
3500  [PW] Added IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 60GH & 40GN family to knowndrives
3501       table.
3502
3503  [BA] smartd: made '-s' Directive more efficient.  Now store
3504       compiled regex, and re-use.  If device lacks certain self-test
3505       capabilities, track it and don't try again.
3506
3507  [BA] smartd: made memory allocation for device lists completely
3508       dynamic (eliminating compile-time maximum length constants).
3509
3510  [PW] Removed warning for SAMSUNG SP0802N with TK100-23 firmware
3511
3512  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA IV family to knowndrives table.
3513
3514  [BA] smartd: reduce per-device memory footprint by making
3515       mail-warning info dynamically allocated.  Also remove
3516       potential memory leak if use has -m Directive twice and
3517       keeps reloading the config file (highly unlikely this would
3518       ever be noticed!) 
3519
3520  [DG] smartd: added SCSI scheduled self-tests (Background
3521       short or extended).
3522
3523  [BA] smartd: can now run scheduled offline immediate and
3524       self-tests.  See man page and -s Directive for details.
3525
3526  [GG] don't include manpages in make-dist-tarball.
3527
3528  [BA] smartctl: on-line examples given with -h are now correct
3529       for solaris and linux, but wrong for freebsd.  Ed?
3530
3531  [BA] smartd: man page now explains device scanning for solaris as
3532       well as linux and freebsd.
3533
3534  [BA] smartd/smartctl: man pages now report correct CVS tag release
3535       date, and executables '-V' options reports more build info.
3536
3537smartmontools 5.26
3538
3539  [BA] Improved user messages that appear from 'make install'
3540
3541  [PW] Removed warning for SAMSUNG SP1213N with firmware TL100-23
3542
3543  [BA] incorporated SuSE init script from user.
3544
3545  [DG] if SCSI device is read only, then open it read only.
3546
3547  [BA] when compiled on non-supported system (NOT linux, freebsd or solaris) then
3548       the run-time error messages now clearly say 'your system is not supported'
3549       and give clear directions.
3550
3551  [BA] ./configure script now works correctly on SuSE linux boxes
3552
3553  [BA] minor improvements to man pages
3554
3555  [BA] simplified detection of packet (ATAPI, CD) devices.
3556
3557  [BA] init script (redhat, mandrake, yellowdog) now uses correct
3558       strings for translation and is slightly more standard.
3559
3560  [DG] smartctl: output scsi Seagate vendor pages for disks (not tapes)
3561
3562smartmontools 5.25
3563
3564Note: there was no '5.24' release. From this point on, even numbered
3565releases will be 'stable' ones and odd numbered releases will be
3566unstable/testing/development ones.
3567
3568  [DG] smartd/smartctl: changed scsiClearControlGLTSD() to
3569       scsiSetControlGLTSD() with an 'enabled' argument so '-S on'
3570       and '-S off' work for SCSI devices (if changing GLTSD supported).
3571
3572  [BA] smartd/smartctl: wired in scsiClearControlGLTSD(). Could still
3573       use a corresponding Set function.  Left stubs for this purpose.
3574
3575  [DG] scsicmds: added scsiClearControlGLTSD() [still to be wired in]
3576
3577  [BA] smartctl: make SCSI -T options behave the same way as the
3578       ATA ones.
3579
3580  [DG] smartctl: output scsi transport protocol if available
3581
3582  [DG] scsi: stop device scan in smartd and smartctl if badly formed
3583       mode response [heuristic to filter out USB devices before we
3584       (potentially) lock them up].
3585
3586  [BA] smartd: deviceclose()->CloseDevice(). Got rid of SCSIDEVELOPMENT
3587       macro-enabled code.  Added -W to list of gcc specific options to
3588       always enable. Made code clean for -W warnings.
3589
3590  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax VL 30 family to knowndrives table.
3591
3592  [DG] scsi: add warning (when '-l error' active) if Control mode page
3593       GLTSD bit is set (global disable of saving log counters)
3594
3595  [DG] scsi: remember mode sense cmd length. Output trip temperature
3596       from IE lpage (IBM extension) when unavailable from temp lpage.
3597
3598  [BA] smartd: for both SCSI and ATA now warns user if either
3599       the number of self-test errors OR timestamp of most
3600       recent self-test error have increased.
3601
3602  [DG] smartctl: output Seagate scsi Cache and Factory log pages (if
3603       available) when vendor attributes chosen
3604
3605  [DG] smartd: add scsiCountFailedSelfTests() function.
3606
3607  [DG] Do more sanity checking of scsi log page responses.
3608
3609  [BA] smartd: now warns user if number of self-test errors has
3610       increased for SCSI devices.
3611
3612  [BA] smartd: warn user if number of ATA self-test errors increases
3613       (as before) OR if hour time stamp of most recent self-test
3614       error changes.
3615
3616  [DG] More checks for well formed mode page responses. This has the side
3617       effect of stopping scans on bad SCSI implementations (e.g. some
3618       USB disks) prior to sending commands (typically log sense) that
3619       locks them up.
3620
3621  [PW] Added Western Digital Caviar family and Caviar SE family to
3622       knowndrives table.
3623
3624  [BA] smartd: added -l daemon (which is the default value if -l
3625       is not used).
3626
3627  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA V family to knowndrives table.
3628
3629  [BA] smartd: added additional command line argument -l FACILITY
3630       or --logfacility FACILITY.  This can be used to redirect
3631       messages from smartd to a different file than the one used
3632       by other system daemons.
3633
3634  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, Western Digital Protege WD400EB,
3635       and Western Digital Caviar AC38400 to knowndrives table.
3636
3637  [BA] smartd: scanning should now also work correctly for
3638       devfs WITHOUT traditional links /dev/hd[a-t] or /dev/sd[a-z].
3639 
3640  [PW] Added Maxtor 4W040H3, Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus,
3641       IBM Deskstar 120GXP (40GB), Seagate U Series 20410,
3642       Fujitsu MHM2100AT, MHL2300AT, MHM2150AT, and IBM-DARA-212000
3643       to knowndrives table.
3644
3645  [PW] Added remaining Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 models to knowndrives
3646       table.
3647
3648  [EM] smartd: If no matches found, then return 0, rather than an error
3649       indication, as it just means no devices of the given type exist.
3650       Adjust FreeBSD scan code to mirror Linux version.
3651
3652  [BA] smartd: made device scan code simpler and more robust. If
3653       too many devices detected, warn user but scan as many
3654       as possible.  If error in scanning, warn user but don't
3655       die right away.
3656
3657  [EM] smartd: To keep as consistent as possible, migrate FreeBSD
3658       devicescan code to also use glob(3). Also verified clean
3659       compile on a 4.7 FreeBSD system.
3660
3661  [BA] smartd: Modified device scan code to use glob(3). Previously
3662       it appeared to have trouble when scanning devices on an XFS
3663       file system, and used non-public interface to directory
3664       entries. Problems were also reported when /dev/ was on an
3665       ext2/3 file system, but there was a JFS partition on the same
3666       disk.
3667
3668  [BA] Clearer error messages when device scanning finds no suitable
3669       devices.
3670
3671  [EM] FreeBSD: Fixup code to allow for proper compilation under
3672       -STABLE branch.
3673
3674smartmontools 5.23
3675
3676  [BA] smartd: didn't close file descriptors of ATA packet devices
3677       that are scanned. Fixed.
3678
3679  [BA] Added reload/report targets to the smartmontools init script.
3680       reload: reloads config file
3681       report: send SIGUSR1 to check devices now
3682
3683smartmontools 5.22
3684
3685  [EM] Fix compile issues for FreeBSD < 5-CURRENT.
3686
3687  [PW] Added Fujitsu MHM2200AT to knowndrives table.
3688
3689  [BA] To help catch bugs, clear ATA error structures before all
3690       ioctl calls.  Disable code that attempted to time-out on SCSI
3691       devices when they hung (doesn't work).
3692 
3693  [BA] Documented STATUS/ERROR flags added by [PW] below.
3694
3695  [BA] Improved algorithm to recognize ATA packet devices. Should
3696       no longer generate SYSLOG kernel noise when user tries either
3697       smartd or smartctl on packet device (CD-ROM or DVD).  Clearer
3698       warning messages from smartd when scanning ATA packet device.
3699
3700  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4025GAS to knowndrives table.
3701
3702  [PW] Added a textual interpretation of the status and error registers
3703       in the SMART error log (ATA).  The interpretation is
3704       command-dependent and currently only eight commands are supported
3705       (those which produced errors in the error logs that I happen to
3706       have seen).
3707
3708  [BA] added memory allocation tracking to solaris code.
3709       Fixed solaris signal handling (reset handler to default
3710       after first call to handler) by using sigset. Added
3711       HAVE_SIGSET to configure.in
3712
3713  [CD] solaris port: added SCSI functionality to solaris
3714       stubs.
3715
3716  [BA] smartd: attempt to address bug report about smartd
3717       hanging on USB devices when scanning:
3718       https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=107615
3719       Set a timeout of SCSITIMEOUT (nominally 7 seconds) before
3720       giving up.
3721
3722  [EM] smartd: DEVICESCAN will follow links in a devfs filesystem and
3723       make sure the end point is a disc.  Update documentation, added
3724       note about FreeBSD scanning
3725
3726  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN also looks for block devices in
3727       /dev.  Updated documentation.  Now scans for up to
3728       20 ATA devices /dev/hda-t rather than previous 12
3729       /dev/hda-l.
3730
3731  [EM] smartd: mirror the FreeBSD DEVICESCAN logic for Linux,
3732       so that smartd now scans only devices found in /dev/. Also,
3733       make utility memory functions take a line number and file so
3734       that we report errors with the correct location.
3735 
3736  [GG] add a note about Debian bug #208964 to WARNINGS.
3737
3738  [BA] smartctl: -T verypermissive option broken.  Use
3739       -T verpermissive until the next release, please.
3740
3741  [BA] Syntax mods so that code also compiles on Solaris using
3742       Sun Workshop compiler.  Need -xmemalign 1i -xCC flags
3743       for cc.
3744
3745smartmontools 5.21
3746
3747  [DK] Changed configure.in so -Wall is only included if gcc
3748       is used (this is a gcc specific flag) and -fsignedchar
3749       is not used at all (this is a gcc specific compiler
3750       flag).
3751
3752  [BA] Modifications so that code now compiles under solaris. Now
3753       all that's needed (:-) is to fill in os_solaris.[hc].  Added
3754       os_generic.[hc] as guide to future ports.  Fixed -D option
3755       of smartd (no file name).  Modified -h opt of smartd/smartctl
3756       to work properly with solaris getopt().
3757
3758  [EM] Update MAN pages with notes that 3ware drives are NOT supported
3759        under FreeBSD. Cleanup FreeBSD warning message handling.
3760
3761  [EM] FreeBSD only: Fix first user found bug....I guess I was making
3762       the wrong assumption on how to convert ATA devnames to
3763       channel/unit numbers.
3764 
3765  [EM] Allow for option --enable-sample to append '.sample' to installed
3766        smartd.conf and rc script files. Also, let rc script shell setting
3767        be determined by configure
3768
3769  [EM] Minor autoconf update to include -lcam for FreeBSD
3770
3771  [EM] Add conditional logic to allow FreeBSD to compile pre-ATAng.
3772        -- note, not tested
3773        Add some documentation to INSTALL for FreeBSD.
3774
3775  [EM] Implement SCSI CAM support for FreeBSD.  NOTE: I am not an expert
3776        in the use of CAM.  It seems to work for me, but I may be doing
3777        something horribly wrong, so please exercise caution.
3778
3779  [EM] Switch over to using 'atexit' rather than 'on_exit' routine. This also
3780        meant we needed to save the exit status elsewhere so our 'Goodbye'
3781        routine could examine it.
3782
3783  [EM] Move the DEVICESCAN code to os specific files. Also moved some of the
3784        smartd Memory functions to utility.c to make available to smartctl.
3785
3786  [EM] Code janitor work on os_freebsd.c.
3787
3788  [EM] Added os_freebsd.[hc] code.  Additional code janitor
3789       work.
3790
3791  [BA] Code janitor working, moving OS dependent code into
3792       os_linux.[hc].
3793
3794  [GG] conditionally compile os_{freebsd,linux}.o depending on
3795       host architecture
3796
3797  [PW] Print estimated completion time for tests
3798
3799  [BA] Added -F samsung2 flag to correct firmware byte swap.
3800       All samsung drives with *-23 firmware revision string.
3801
3802smartmontools 5.20
3803
3804  [GG] Fixed broken Makefile.am (zero length smartd.conf.5
3805       was being created), fix broken uninstall/distcheck targets
3806
3807  [FM] Improved Slackware init script added to /etc/smartd.initd
3808
3809smartmontools 5.19 [NOTE CHANGE OF RELEASE NUMBERING]
3810
3811  [BA] smartctl: added '-T verypermissive' option which is
3812       equivalent to giving '-T permissive' many times.
3813
3814  [BA] Try harder to identify from IDENTIFY DEVICE structure
3815       if SMART supported/enabled.  smartd now does a more
3816       thorough job of trying to assess this before sending
3817       a SMART status command to find out for sure.
3818
3819  [BA] smartctl: it's now possible to override the program's
3820       guess of the device type (ATA or SCSI) with -d option.
3821
3822  [BA] try hard to avoid sending IDENTIFY DEVICE to packet
3823       devices (CDROMS).  They can't do SMART, and this generates
3824       annoying syslog messages. At the same time, identify type
3825       of Packet device.
3826
3827  [BA] smartctl: Can now use permissive option more
3828       than once, to control how far to go before giving up.
3829
3830  [BA] smartd: if user asked to monitor either error or self-test
3831       logs (-l error or -l selftest) WITHOUT monitoring any of the
3832       Attribute values, code will SEGV.  For 5.1-18 and earlier,
3833       a good workaround is to enable Auto offline (-o on).
3834
3835  [BA] smartctl: If enable auto offline command given, update auto
3836       offline status before printing capabilities.
3837
3838  [GG] Make autotools build the default, remove autotools.diff
3839
3840  [GG] Add auto{conf,make} support, not enabled by default.
3841
3842  [BA] Eliminated #include <linux/hdreg.h> from code. This
3843       should simplify porting to solaris, FreeBSD, etc. The
3844       only linux-specific code is now isolated to three routines,
3845       one for SCSI, one for Escalade, one for ATA.
3846
3847smartmontools 5.1-18
3848
3849  [BA] smartd: fixed serious bug - Attributes not monitored unless
3850       user told smartd to ignore at least one of them!
3851
3852smartmontools 5.1-17
3853
3854  [BA] Default runlevels for smartd changed from 3 and 5 to
3855       2, 3, 4, and 5.
3856
3857  [BA] Removed as much dynamic memory allocation as possible from
3858       configuration file parsing. Reloading config file, even in
3859       presence of syntax errors etc. should not cause memory leaks.
3860
3861  [PW] It is no longer permissible for the integer part (if any) of
3862       arguments to --report and --device to be followed by non-digits.
3863       For example, the "foo" in --report=ioctl,2foo was previously
3864       ignored, but now causes an error.
3865
3866  [BA] smartd: added -q/--quit command line option to specify
3867       under what circumstances smartd should exit.  The old
3868       -c/--checkonce option is now obsoleted by this more
3869       general-purpose option.
3870
3871  [BA] smartd now responds to a HUP signal by re-reading its
3872       configuration file /etc/smartd.conf.  If there are
3873       errors in this file, then the configuration file is
3874       ignored and smartd continues to monitor the devices that
3875       it was monitoring prior to receiving the HUP signal.
3876
3877  [BA] Now correctly get SMART status from disks behind 3ware
3878       controllers, thanks to Adam Radford. Need 3w-xxxx driver
3879       version 1.02.00.037 or later. Previously the smartmontools
3880       SMART status always returned "OK" for 3ware controllers.
3881
3882  [BA] Additional work on dynamic memory allocation/deallocation.
3883       This should have no effect on smartctl, but clears that way
3884       for smartd to dynamically add and remove entries.  It should
3885       also now be easier to modify smartd to re-read its config
3886       file on HUP (which is easy) without leaking memory (which is
3887       harder). The philosophy is that memory for data structures in
3888       smartd is now allocated only on demand, the first time it
3889       is needed.
3890
3891  [BA] smartd: finished cleanup.  Now use create/rm functions for
3892       cfgentries and dynamic memory allocation almost everywhere.
3893       Philosophy: aggresively try and provoke SEGV to help find
3894       bad code.
3895
3896  [BA] Added SAMSUNG SV0412H to knowndrives table.
3897
3898  [BA] smartd: if DEVICESCAN used then knowndrives table might not set
3899       the -v attributes correctly -- may have been the same for all
3900       the drives.  Cleaned up some data structures and memory
3901       allocation to try and ensure segvs if such problems are
3902       introduced again.
3903
3904  [BA] Now allow -S on and -o on for the 3ware device type.  For these
3905       commands to be passed through, the stock 3ware 3w-xxxx driver
3906       must be patched (8 lines).  I'll post a patch on the smartmontools
3907       home page after it's been tested by a few other people and 3ware
3908       have had a chance to look it over.
3909
3910smartmontools-5.1-16
3911
3912  [BA] smartd - can now monitor ATA drives behind 3ware controllers.
3913
3914  [BA] smartd - changed some FATAL out of memory error messages from
3915       syslog level LOG_INFO to LOG_CRIT.
3916
3917  [BA] smartctl - added code to look at ATA drives behind 3ware RAID
3918       controllers using the 3w-xxxx driver.  Note that for technical
3919       reasons related to the 3w-xxxx driver, the "Enable Autosave",
3920       "Enable Automatic Offline" commands are not implemented.
3921       I will add this to smartd shortly.
3922
3923  [BA] smartd - modified sleep loop, so that smartd no longer comes
3924       on the run queue every second.  Instead, unless interrupted,
3925       it sleeps until the next polling time, when it wakes up. Now
3926       smartd also tries to wake up at exactly the right
3927       intervals (nominally 30 min) even if the user has been sending
3928       signals to it.
3929
3930  [GG] add Fujitsu MHN2300AT to vendoropts_9_seconds.
3931
3932  [EB] Fujitsu change in knowndrives ... match the whole MPD and
3933       MPE series for vendoropts_9_seconds.
3934
3935  [BA] smartd bug, might cause segv if a device can not be opened. Was
3936       due to missing comma in char* list.  Consequence is that email
3937       failure messages might have had the wrong Subject: heading for
3938       errorcount, FAILEDhealthcheck, FAILEDreadsmartdata, FAILEDreadsmarterrorlog,
3939       FAILEDreadsmartsefltestlog, FAILEDopendevice were all displaced by
3940       one.  And FAILEDopendevice might have caused a segv if -m was being
3941       used as a smartd Directive.
3942
3943smartmontools-5.1-15
3944
3945  [BA] Cleaned up smartmontools.spec so that upgrading, removing
3946       and other such operations correctly preserve running behavior
3947       and booting behavior of smartd.
3948
3949  [BA] Improved formatting of ATA Error Log printout, and added
3950       listing of names of commands that caused the error. Added
3951       obsolete ATA-4 SMART feature commands to table, along with
3952       obsolete SFF-8035i SMART feature command.
3953
3954  [PW] Added atacmdnames.[hc], which turn command register &
3955       feature register pairs into ATA command names.
3956
3957  [BA] Added conveyance self-test.  Some code added for selective
3958       self-tests, but #ifdefed out.
3959
3960  [BA] Modified smartd exit status and log levels.  If smartd is
3961       "cleanly" terminated, for example with SIGTERM, then its
3962       exit messages are now logged at LOG_INFO not LOG_CRIT
3963
3964  [BA] Added Attribute IDs  (Fujitsu) 0xCA - 0xCE.  This is decimal
3965       202-206. Added -v switches for interpretation of Attributes
3966       192, 198 and 201.
3967
3968  [BA] Made smartmontools work with any endian order machine for:
3969       - SMART selftest log
3970       - SMART ATA error log
3971       - SMART Attributes values
3972       - SMART Attributes thesholds
3973       - IDENTIFY DEVICE information
3974       - LOG DIRECTORY
3975       Smartmontools is now free of endian bias and works correctly
3976       on both little- and big-endian hardware.  This has been tested by
3977       three independent PPC users on a variety of ATA and SCSI hardware.
3978
3979  [DG] Check that certain SCSI command responses are well formed. If
3980       IEC mode page response is not well formed exit smartctl. This
3981       is to protect aacraid. smartd should ignore a aacraid device.
3982
3983smartmontools-5.1-14
3984
3985  [BA] smartctl: added column to -A output to show if Attributes are
3986       updated only during off-line testing or also during normal
3987       operation.
3988
3989smartmontools-5.1-13
3990
3991  [BA] smartd: attempt to enable/disable automatic offline testing even
3992       if the disk appears not to support it.  Now the same logic
3993       as smartctl.
3994
3995  [BA] Added definition of Attribute 201, soft read error rate.
3996
3997  [BA] Added IBM/Hitachi IC35L120AVV207-1 (GXP-180) and corresponding
3998       8MB Cache GXP-120 to drive database.
3999
4000  [BA] smartd: if DEVICESCAN Directive used in smartd.conf, and
4001       -I, -R or -r Directives used in conjunction with this, got
4002       segv errors.  Fixed by correcting memory allocation calls.
4003
4004  [BA] smartd: enable automatic offline testing was broken due
4005       to cut-and-paste error that disabled it instead of
4006       enabling it.  Thanks to Maciej W. Rozycki for pointing
4007       out the problem and solution.
4008
4009  [BA] Fixed "spelling" of some Attribute names to replace spaces
4010       in names by underscores. (Fixed field width easier for awk
4011       style parsing.)
4012
4013  [BA,GF] Added mods submitted by [GF] to support Attribute 193 being
4014       load/unload cycles. Add -v 193,loadunload option, useful for
4015       Hitachi drive DK23EA-30, and add this drive to knowndrive.c
4016       Add meaning of attribute 250 : Read error retry rate
4017
4018smartmontools-5.1-12
4019
4020  [BA] Added another entry for Samsung drives to knowndrive table.
4021
4022  [DG] Refine SCSI log sense command to do a double fetch in most cases
4023       (but not for the TapeAlert log page). Fix TapeAlert and Self Test
4024       log page response truncation.
4025
4026  [PW] Added 'removable' argument to -d Directive for smartd.  This indicates
4027       that smartd should continue (rather than exit) if the device does not
4028       appear to be present.
4029
4030  [BA] Modified smartmontools.spec [Man pages location] and
4031       smartd.initd [Extra space kills chkconfig!] for Redhat 6.x
4032       compatibility (thanks to Gerald Schnabel).
4033
4034smartmontools-5.1-11
4035
4036  [EB] Add another Fujitsu disk to knowndrives.c
4037
4038  [GG] match for scsi/ and ide/ in case of devfs to exclude false postives
4039
4040  [BA] If SCSI device listed in /etc/smartd.conf fails to open or do
4041       SMART stuff correctly, or not enough space
4042       to list all SCSI devices, fail with error unless
4043       -DSCSIDEVELOPMENT set during compile-time.
4044
4045  [BA] Added automatic recognition of /dev/i* (example: /dev/ide/...)
4046       as an ATA device.
4047
4048  [DG] Add "Device type: [disk | tape | medium changer | ...] line to
4049       smartctl -i output for SCSI devices.
4050
4051  [PW] Fixed bug in smartd where test email would be sent regularly (for
4052       example, daily if the user had specified -M daily) instead of just
4053       once on startup.
4054
4055  [KM] More TapeAlert work. Added translations for media changer
4056       alerts. TapeAlert support reported according to the log page
4057       presence. ModeSense not attempted for non-ready tapes (all
4058       drives do not support this after all). Get peripheral type from
4059       Inquiry even if drive info is not printed. Add QUIETON()
4060       QUIETOFF() to TapeAlert log check.
4061
4062  [BA] Stupid bug in atacmds.c minor_str[] affected ataVersionInfo().
4063       Two missing commas meant that minor_str[] had two few elements,
4064       leading to output like this:
4065       Device Model:     Maxtor 6Y120L0
4066       Serial Number:    Y40BF74E
4067       Firmware Version: YAR41VW0
4068       Device is:        Not in smartctl database [for details use: -P showall]
4069       ATA Version is:   7
4070       ATA Standard is:  9,minutes
4071                         ^^^^^^^^^
4072       Missing commas inserted.
4073
4074  [BA] Fixed smartd bug.  On device registration, if ATA device did
4075       not support SMART error or self-test logs but user had asked to
4076       monitor them, an attempt would be made to read them anyway,
4077       possibly generating "Drive Seek" errors.  We now check that
4078       the self-test and error logs are supported before trying to
4079       access them the first time.
4080
4081  [GG/BA] Fixed bug where if SMART ATA error log not supported,
4082       command was tried anyway. Changed some error printing to use
4083       print handlers.
4084
4085  [GG] Makefile modifications to ease packaging
4086
4087  [DG] Did work for TapeAlerts (SCSI). Now can detect /dev/nst0 as a
4088       SCSI device. Also open SCSI devices O_NONBLOCK so they don't
4089       hang on open awaiting media. The ATA side should worry about
4090       this also: during a DEVICESCAN a cd/dvd device without media
4091       will hang. Added some TapeAlert code suggested by Kai Makisara.
4092
4093smartmontools-5.1-10
4094
4095  [PW] Extended the -F option/Directive to potentially fix other firmware
4096       bugs in addition to the Samsung byte-order bug.  Long option name is
4097       now --firmwarebug and the option/Directive accepts an argument
4098       indicating the type of firmware bug to fix.
4099
4100  [BA] Fixed a bug that prevented the enable automatic off-line
4101       test feature from enabling.  It also prevented the enable Attribute
4102       autosave from working.  See CVS entry for additional details.
4103
4104  [PW] Modified the -r/--report option (smartctl and smartd) to allow the
4105       user to specify the debug level as a positive integer.
4106
4107  [BA] Added --log directory option to smartctl.  If the disk
4108       supports the general-purpose logging feature set (ATA-6/7)
4109       then this option enables the Log Directory to be printed.
4110       This Log Directory shows which device logs are available, and
4111       their lengths in sectors.
4112
4113  [PW] Added -P/--presets option to smartctl and -P Directive to smartd.
4114
4115  [GG] Introduce different exit codes indicating the type of problem
4116       encountered for smartd.
4117
4118  [DG] Add non-medium error count to '-l error' and extended self test
4119       duration to '-l selftest'. Get scsi IEs and temperature changes
4120       working in smartd. Step over various scsi disk problems rather
4121       than abort smartd startup.
4122
4123  [DG] Support -l error for SCSI disks (and tapes). Output error counter
4124       log pages.
4125
4126  [BA] Added -F/--fixbyteorder option to smartctl.  This allows us to read
4127       SMART data from some disks that have byte-reversed two- and four-
4128       byte quantities in their SMART data structures.
4129
4130  [BA] Fixed serious bug: the -v options in smartd.conf were all put
4131       together and used together, not drive-by-drive.
4132
4133  [PW] Added knowndrives.h and knowndrives.c.  The knowndrives array
4134       supersedes the drivewarnings array.
4135
4136  [GG] add {-p,--pidfile} option to smartd to write a PID file on
4137       startup. Update the manpage accordingly.
4138
4139  [DG] Fix scsi smartd problem detecting SMART support. More cleaning
4140       and fix (and rename) scsiTestUnitReady(). More scsi renaming.
4141
4142  [BA] Fixed smartd so that if a disk that is explictily listed is not
4143       found, then smartd will exit with nonzero status BEFORE forking.
4144       If a disk can't be registered, this will also be detected before
4145       forking, so that init scripts can react correctly.
4146
4147  [BA] Replaced all linux-specific ioctl() calls in atacmds.c with
4148       a generic handler smartcommandhandler().  Now the only routine
4149       that needs to be implemented for a given OS is os_specific_handler().
4150       Also implemented the --report ataioctl. This provides
4151       two levels of reporting.  Using the option once gives a summary
4152       report of device IOCTL transactions.  Using the option twice give
4153       additional info (a printout of ALL device raw 512 byte SMART
4154       data structures).  This is useful for debugging.
4155
4156  [DG] more scsi cleanup. Output scsi device serial number (VPD page
4157       0x80) if available as part of '-i'. Implement '-t offline' as
4158       default self test (only self test older disks support).
4159
4160  [BA] Changed crit to info in loglevel of smartd complaint to syslog
4161       if DEVICESCAN enabled and device not found.
4162
4163  [BA] Added -v 194,10xCelsius option/Directive. Raw Attribute number
4164       194 is ten times the disk temperature in Celsius.
4165
4166  [DG] scsicmds.[hc] + scsiprint.c: clean up indentation, remove tabs.
4167       Introduce new intermediate interface based on "struct scsi_cmnd_io"
4168       to isolate SCSI generic commands + responses from Linux details;
4169       should help port to FreeBSD of SCSI part of smartmontools.
4170       Make SCSI command builders more parametric.
4171
4172smartmontools-5.1-9
4173 
4174  [BA] smartctl: if HDIO_DRIVE_TASK ioctl() is not implemented (no
4175       kernel support, then try to assess drive health by examining
4176       Attribute values/thresholds directly.
4177
4178  [BA] smartd/smartctl: added -v 200,writeerrorcount option/Directive
4179       for Fujitsu disks.
4180
4181  [BA] smartd: Now send email if any of the SMART commands fails,
4182       or if open()ing the device fails.  This is often noted
4183       as a common disk failure mode.
4184
4185  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added -v N,raw8 -v N,raw16 and -v N,raw48
4186       Directives/Options for printing Raw Attributes in different
4187       Formats.
4188
4189  [BA] smartd: Added -r ID and -R ID for reporting/tracking Raw
4190       values of Attributes.
4191
4192  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Changed printing of spin-up-time attribute
4193       raw value to reflect current/average as per IBM standard.
4194
4195  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added -v 9,seconds option for disks which
4196       use Attribute 9 for power-on lifetime in seconds.
4197
4198  [BA] smartctl: Added a warning message so that users of some IBM
4199       disks are warned to update their firmware.  Note: we may want
4200       to add a command-line flag to disable the warning messages.
4201       I have done this in a general way, using regexp, so that we
4202       can add warnings about any type of disk that we wish...
4203
4204smartmontools-5.1-7
4205
4206  [BA] smartd: Created a subdirectory examplescripts/ of source
4207       directory that contains executable scripts for the -M exec PATH
4208       Directive of smartd.
4209
4210smartmontools-5.1-5
4211
4212  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN in /etc/smartd.conf
4213       can now be followed by all the same Directives as a regular
4214       device name like /dev/hda takes.  This allows one to use
4215       (for example):
4216       DEVICESCAN -m root@example.com
4217       in the /etc/smartd.conf file.
4218
4219  [BA] smartd: Added -c (--checkonce) command-line option. This checks
4220       all devices once, then exits.  The exit status can be
4221       used to learn if devices were detected, and if smartd is
4222       functioning correctly. This is primarily for Distribution
4223       scripters.
4224
4225  [BA] smartd: Implemented -M exec Directive for
4226       smartd.conf.  This makes it possible to run an
4227       arbitrary script or mailing program with the
4228       -m option.
4229
4230  [PW] smartd: Modified -M Directive so that it can be given
4231       multiple times.  Added -M exec Directive.
4232
4233smartmontools-5.1-4
4234
4235  [BA] Fixed bug in smartctl pointed out by Pierre Gentile.
4236       -d scsi didn't work because tryata and tryscsi were
4237       reversed -- now works on /devfs SCSI devices.
4238
4239  [BA] Fixed bug in smartctl pointed out by Gregory Goddard
4240       <ggoddard@ufl.edu>.  Manual says that bit 6 of return
4241       value turned on if errors found in smart error log.  But
4242       this wasn't implemented.
4243
4244smartmontools-5.1-3
4245
4246  [BA] Modified printing format for 9,minutes to read
4247       Xh+Ym not X h + Y m, so that fields are fixed width.
4248
4249  [BA] Added Attribute 240 "head flying hours"
4250
4251smartmontools-5.1.1
4252
4253  [BA] As requested, local time/date now printed by smartctl -i
4254
4255  [PW] Added "help" argument to -v for smartctl
4256
4257  [PW] Added -D, --showdirectives option to smartd
4258
4259  [DG] add '-l selftest' capability for SCSI devices (update smartctl.8)
4260
4261  [BA] smartd,smartctl: added additional Attribute modification option
4262       -v 220,temp and -v 9,temp.
4263
4264  [PW] Renamed smartd option -X to -d
4265
4266START OF SMARTMONTOOLS 5.1 series
4267
4268smartmontools-5.0.50
4269
4270  [PW] Changed smartd.conf Directives -- see man page
4271
4272  [BA/DG] Fixed uncommented comment in smartd.conf
4273
4274  [DG] Correct 'Recommended start stop count' for SCSI devices
4275
4276  [PW] Replaced smartd.conf directive -C with smartd option -i
4277
4278  [PW] Changed options for smartctl -- see man page.
4279
4280  [BA] Use strerror() to generate system call error messages.
4281
4282  [BA] smartd: fflush() all open streams before fork().
4283
4284  [BA] smartctl, smartd simplified internal handling of checksums
4285  for simpler porting and less code.
4286
4287smartmontools-5.0.49
4288
4289  [PW] smartd --debugmode changed to --debug
4290
4291  [BA] smartd/smartctl added attribute 230 Head Amplitude from
4292  IBM DPTA-353750.
4293
4294  [PW] Added list of proposed new options for smartctl to README.
4295
4296  [PW] smartd: ParseOpts() now uses getopt_long() if HAVE_GETOPT_LONG is
4297  defined and uses getopt() otherwise.  This is controlled by CPPFLAGS in
4298  the Makefile.
4299
4300  [BA] smartd: Fixed a couple of error messages done with perror()
4301  to redirect them as needed.
4302
4303smartmontools-5.0.48
4304
4305  [BA] smartctl: The -O option to enable an Immediate off-line test
4306  did not print out the correct time that the test would take to
4307  complete.  This is because the test timer is volatile and not
4308  fixed.  This has been fixed, and the smartctl.8 man page has been
4309  updated to explain how to track the Immediate offline test as it
4310  progresses, and to further emphasize the differences between the
4311  off-line immediate test and the self-tests.
4312
4313  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added new attribute (200) Multi_Zone_Error_Rate
4314
4315  [BA] smartctl: modified so that arguments could have either a single -
4316  as in -ea or multiple ones as in -e -a.  Improved warning message for
4317  device not opened, and fixed error in redirection of error output of
4318  HD identity command.
4319
4320  [PW] smartd: added support for long options.  All short options are still
4321  supported; see manpage for available long options.
4322
4323  [BA] smartctl.  When raw Attribute value was 2^31 or larger, did
4324  not print correctly.
4325
4326smartmontools-5.0.46
4327
4328  [BA] smartd: added smartd.conf Directives -T and -s.  The -T Directive
4329  enables/disables Automatic Offline Testing.  The -s Directive
4330  enables/disables Attribute Autosave. Documentation and
4331  example configuration file updated to agree.
4332
4333  [BA] smartd: user can make smartd check the disks at any time
4334  (ie, interrupt sleep) by sending signal SIGUSR1 to smartd.  This
4335  can be done for example with:
4336  kill -USR1 <pid>
4337  where <pid> is the process ID number of smartd.
4338
4339  [EB] scsi: don't trust the data we receive from the drive too
4340  much. It very well might have errors (like zero response length).
4341  Seen on Megaraid logical drive, and verified in the driver source.
4342
4343  [BA] smartd: added Directive -m for sending test email and
4344  for modifying email reminder behavior.  Updated manual, and sample
4345  configuration file to illustrate & explain this.
4346
4347  [BA] smartd: increased size of a continued smartd.conf line to
4348  1023 characters.
4349
4350  [BA] Simplified Directive parsers and improved warning/error
4351  messages.
4352
4353smartmontools-5.0.45
4354
4355  [EB] Fixed bug in smartd where testunitready logic inverted
4356  prevented functioning on scsi devices.
4357  The bug in question only affects smartd users with scsi devices.
4358  To see if your version of smartd has the testunitready() bug, do
4359     smartd -V
4360  If the version of the module smartd.c in a line like:
4361     Module: smartd.c      revision: 1.66   date: 2002/11/17
4362  has a revision greater than or equal to 1.30, and less than or equal to
4363  1.64, then your version of the code has this problem.
4364  This problem affected releases starting with RELEASE_5_0_16 up to and
4365  including RELEASE_5_0_43.
4366
4367  [BA] Added testunitnotready to smartctl for symmetry with smartd.
4368
4369  [SB] added Czech descriptions to .spec file
4370  [SB]  corrected comment in smartd.conf example
4371
4372  [BA] Changed way that entries in the ATA error log are printed,
4373  to make it clearer which is the most recent error and
4374  which is the oldest one.
4375
4376  NOTE: All changes made prior to this point were done by Bruce Allen
4377  [BA] although several of them had been suggested by earlier postings
4378  by Stanislav Brabec [SB].
4379
4380smartmontools-5.0.43

4383  The term "Centigrade" ceased to exist in 1948.  (c.f
4384  http://www.bartleby.com/64/C004/016.html).

4386smartmontools-5.0.42
4387
4388  Modified SCSI device check to also send warning emails if
4389  requested in directives file.
4390
4391  Added a new smartd configuration file Directive: -M ADDRESS.
4392  This sends a single warning email to ADDRESS for failures or
4393  errors detected with the -c, -L, -l, or -f Directives.
4394
4395smartmontools-5.0.38
4396
4397  Modified perror() statements in atacmds.c so that printout for SMART
4398  commands errors is properly suppressed or queued depending upon users
4399  choices for error reporting modes.
4400
4401  Added Italian descriptions to smartmontools.spec file.
4402
4403  Started impementing send-mail-on-error for smartd; not yet enabled.
4404
4405  Added -P (Permissive) Directive to smartd.conf file to allow SMART
4406  monitoring of pre-ATA-3 Rev 4 disks that have SMART but do not have
4407  a SMART capability bit.
4408 
4409  Removed charset encodings from smartmontools.spec file for non-English
4410  fields.
4411
4412smartmontools-5.0.32
4413
4414  Added manual page smartd.conf.5 for configuration file.
4415
4416  smartctl: Missing ANSI prototype in failuretest(); fixed.
4417
4418  smartctl: Checksum warnings now printed on stdout, or are silent,
4419  depending upon -q and -Q settings.
4420
4421smartmontools-5.0.31
4422
4423  Changed Makefile so that the -V option does not reflect file state
4424  before commit!
4425
4426  smartctl: added new options -W, -U, and -P to control if and how the
4427  smartctl exits if an error is detected in either a SMART data
4428  structure checksum, or a SMART command returns an error.
4429
4430  modified manual page to break options into slightly more logical
4431  categories.
4432
4433  reformatted 'usage' message order to agree with man page ordering
4434
4435  modified .spec file so that locale information now contains
4436  character set definition.   Changed pt_BR to pt since we do not use any
4437  aspect other than language.  See man setlocale.
4438
4439smartmontools-5.0.30
4440  smartctl: added new options -n and -N to force device to be ATA or SCSI
4441  smartctl: no longer dies silently if device path does not start/dev/X
4442  smartctl: now handles arbitrary device paths
4443
4444smartmontools-5.0.29
4445  Modified .spec file and Makefile to make them more compliant with
4446  the "right" way of doing things.
4447
4448smartmontools-5.0.26
4449  Fixed typesetting error in man page smartd.8
4450
4451  Removed redundant variable (harmless) from smartd.c
4452
4453smartmontools-5.0.25
4454
4455  Added a new directive for the configuration file.  If the word
4456  DEVICESCAN appears before any non-commented material in the
4457  configuration file, then the confi file will be ignored and the
4458  devices wil be scanned.
4459
4460smartmontools-5.0.24
4461
4462    Note: it has now been confirmed that the code modifications between
4463    5.0.23 and 5.0.24 have eliminated the GCC 3.2 problems.  Note that
4464    there is a GCC bug howerver, see #8404 at
4465    http://gcc.gnu.org/cgi-bin/gnatsweb.pl?database=gcc&cmd=query
4466    http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8404
4467
4468      Added new Directive for Configuration file:
4469      -C <N> This sets the time in between disk checks to be <N>
4470      seconds apart.  Note that  although  you  can  give
4471       this Directive multiple times on different lines of
4472       the configuration file, only the final  value  that
4473       is  given  has  an  effect,  and applies to all the
4474       disks.  The default value of <N> is 1800  sec,  and
4475       the minimum allowed value is ten seconds.
4476
4477    Problem wasn't the print format. F.L.W. Meunier <0@pervalidus.net>
4478    sent me a gcc 3.2 build and I ran it under a debugger.  The
4479    problem seems to be with passing the very large (2x512+4) byte
4480    data structures as arguments.  I never liked this anyway; it was
4481    inherited from smartsuite.  So I've changed all the heavyweight
4482    functions (ATA ones, anyone) to just passing pointers, not hideous
4483    kB size structures on the stack.  Hopefully this will now build OK
4484    under gcc 3.2 with any sensible compilation options.
4485
4486smartmontools-5.0.23
4487
4488    Because of reported problems with GCC 3.2 compile, I have gone
4489    thorough the code and explicitly changed all print format
4490    parameters to correspond EXACTLY to int unless they have to be
4491    promoted to long longs.  To quote from the glibc bible: [From
4492    GLIBC Manual: Since the prototype doesn't specify types for
4493    optional arguments, in a call to a variadic function the default
4494    argument promotions are performed on the optional argument
4495    values. This means the objects of type char or short int (whether
4496    signed or not) are promoted to either int or unsigned int, as
4497    appropriate.]
4498
4499smartmontools-5.0.22
4500
4501    smartd, smartctl now warn if they find an attribute whose ID
4502    number does not match between Data and Threshold structures.
4503
4504    Fixed nasty bug which led to wrong number of arguments for a
4505    varargs statement, with attendent stack corruption.  Sheesh!
4506    Have added script to CVS attic to help find such nasties in the
4507    future.
4508
4509smartmontools-5.0.21
4510
4511    Eliminated some global variables out of header files and other
4512    minor cleanup of smartd.
4513
4514smartmontools-5.0.20
4515
4516    Did some revision of the man page for smartd and made the usage
4517    messages for Directives 100% consistent.
4518
4519smartmontools-5.0-19
4520
4521    smartd: prints warning message when it gets SIGHUP, saying that it
4522    is NOT re-reading the config file.
4523
4524    smartctl: updated man page to say self-test commands -O,x,X,s,S,A
4525    appear to be supported in the code.  [I can't test these,  can anyone
4526    report?]
4527
4528smartmontools-5.0-18
4529
4530    smartctl: smartctl would previously print the LBA of a self-test
4531    if it completed, and the LBA was not 0 or 0xff...f However
4532    according to the specs this is not correct.  According to the
4533    specs, if the self-test completed without error then LBA is
4534    undefined.  This version fixes that.  LBA value only printed if
4535    self-test encountered an error.
4536
4537smartmontools-5.0-17
4538
4539    smartd has changed significantly. This is the first CVS checkin of
4540    code that extends the options available for smartd.  The following
4541    options can be placed into the /etc/smartd.conf file, and control the
4542    behavior of smartd.
4543    Configuration file Directives (following device name):
4544    -A     Device is an ATA device
4545    -S     Device is a SCSI device
4546    -c     Monitor SMART Health Status
4547    -l     Monitor SMART Error Log for changes
4548    -L     Monitor SMART Self-Test Log for new errors
4549    -f     Monitor for failure of any 'Usage' Attributes
4550    -p     Report changes in 'Prefailure' Attributes
4551    -u     Report changes in 'Usage' Attributes
4552    -t     Equivalent to -p and -u Directives
4553    -a     Equivalent to -c -l -L -f -t Directives
4554    -i ID  Ignore Attribute ID for -f Directive
4555    -I ID  Ignore Attribute ID for -p, -u or -t Directive
4556    #      Comment: text after a hash sign is ignored
4557    \      Line continuation character
4558
4559    cleaned up functions used for printing CVS IDs.  Now use string
4560    library, as it should be.
4561
4562    modified length of device name string in smartd internal structure
4563    to accomodate max length device name strings
4564
4565    removed un-implemented (-e = Email notification) option from
4566    command line arg list.  We'll put it back on when implemeneted.
4567
4568    smartd now logs serious (fatal) conditions in its operation at
4569    loglevel LOG_CRIT rather than LOG_INFO before exiting with error.
4570
4571    smartd used to open a file descriptor for each SMART enabled
4572    device, and then keep it open the entire time smartd was running.
4573    This meant that some commands, like IOREADBLKPART did not work,
4574    since the fd to the device was open.  smartd now opens the device
4575    when it needs to read values, then closes it.  Also, if one time
4576    around it can't open the device, it simply prints a warning
4577    message but does not give up.  Have eliminated the .fd field from
4578    data structures -- no longer gets used.
4579
4580    smartd now opens SCSI devices as well using O_RDONLY rather than
4581    O_RDWR.  If someone can no longer monitor a SCSI device that used
4582    to be readable, this may well be the reason why.
4583
4584    smartd never checked if the number of ata or scsi devices detected
4585    was greater than the max number it could monitor.  Now it does.
4586
4587smartmontools-5.0-16
4588
4589    smartd on startup now looks in the configuration file /etc/smartd.conf for
4590    a list of devices which to include in its monitoring list.  See man page
4591    (man smartd) for syntax.
4592
4593    smartd: close file descriptors of SCSI device if not SMART capable
4594    Closes ALL file descriptors after forking to daemon.
4595
4596    added new temperature attribute (231, temperature)
4597
4598    smartd: now open ATA disks using O_RDONLY
4599
4600smartmontools-5.0-11
4601
4602    smartd now prints the name of a failed or changed attribute
4603    into logfile, not just ID number
4604
4605    Changed name of -p (print version) option to -V
4606
4607    Minor change in philosophy: if a SMART command fails or the device
4608    appears incapable of a SMART command that the user has asked for,
4609    complain by printing an error message, but go ahead and try
4610    anyway.  Since unimplemented SMART commands should just return an
4611    error but not cause disk problems, this should't cause any
4612    difficulty.
4613
4614    Added two new flags: q and Q.  q is quiet mode - only print: For
4615    the -l option, errors recorded in the SMART error log; For the -L
4616    option, errors recorded in the device self-test log; For the -c
4617    SMART "disk failing" status or device attributes (pre-failure or
4618    usage) which failed either now or in the past; For the -v option
4619    device attributes (pre-failure or usage) which failed either now
4620    or in the past.  Q is Very Quiet mode: Print no ouput.  The only
4621    way to learn about what was found is to use the exit status of
4622    smartctl.
4623
4624    smartctl now returns sensible values (bitmask).  See smartctl.h
4625    for the values, and the man page for documentation.
4626
4627    The SMART status check now uses the correct ATA call.  If failure
4628    is detected we search through attributes to list the failed ones.
4629    If the SMART status check shows GOOD, we then look to see if their
4630    are any usage attributes or prefail attributes have failed at any
4631    time.  If so we print them.
4632
4633    Modified function that prints vendor attributes to say if the
4634    attribute has currently failed or has ever failed.
4635
4636    -p option now prints out license info and CVS strings for all
4637    modules in the code, nicely formatted.
4638
4639    Previous versions of this code (and Smartsuite) only generate
4640    SMART failure errors if the value of an attribute is below the
4641    threshold and the prefailure bit is set.  However the ATA Spec
4642    (ATA4 <=Rev 4) says that it is a SMART failure if the value of an
4643    attribute is LESS THAN OR EQUAL to the threshold and the
4644    prefailure bit is set.  This is now fixed in both smartctl and
4645    smartd.  Note that this is a troubled subject -- the original
4646    SFF 8035i specification defining SMART was inconsistent about
4647    this.  One section says that Attribute==Threshold is pass,
4648    and another section says it is fail.  However the ATA specs are
4649    consistent and say Attribute==Threshold is a fail.
4650
4651    smartd did not print the correct value of any failing SMART attribute.  It
4652    printed the index in the attribute table, not the attribute
4653    ID. This is fixed.
4654
4655    when starting self-tests in captive mode ioctl returns EIO because
4656    the drive has been busied out.  Detect this and don't return an eror
4657    in this case.  Check this this is correct (or how to fix it?)
4658 
4659    fixed possible error in how to determine ATA standard support
4660    for devices with no ATA minor revision number.
4661
4662    device opened only in read-only not read-write mode.  Don't need R/W
4663    access to get smart data. Check this with Andre.
4664
4665    smartctl now handles all possible choices of "multiple options"
4666    gracefully.  It goes through the following phases of operation,
4667    in order: INFORMATION, ENABLE/DISABLE, DISPLAY DATA, RUN/ABORT TESTS.
4668    Documentation has bee updated to explain the different phases of
4669    operation.  Control flow through ataPrintMain()
4670    simplified.
4671
4672    If reading device identity information fails, try seeing if the info
4673    can be accessed using a "DEVICE PACKET" command.  This way we can
4674    at least get device info.
4675
4676    Modified Makefile to automatically tag CVS archive on issuance of
4677    a release
4678
4679    Modified drive detection so minor device ID code showing ATA-3 rev
4680    0 (no SMART) is known to not be SMART capable.
4681
4682    Now verify the checksum of the device ID data structure, and of the
4683    attributes threshold structure.  Before neither of these
4684    structures had their checksums verified.
4685
4686    New behavior vis-a-vis checksums.  If they are wrong, we log
4687    warning messages to stdout, stderr, and syslog, but carry on
4688    anyway.  All functions now call a checksumwarning routine if the
4689    checksum doesn't vanish as it should.
4690
4691    Changed Read Hard Disk Identity function to get fresh info from
4692    the disk on each call rather than to use the values that were read
4693    upon boot-up into the BIOS.  This is the biggest change in this
4694    release.  The ioctl(device, HDIO_GET_IDENTITY, buf ) call should
4695    be avoided in such code.  Note that if people get garbled strings
4696    for the model, serial no and firmware versions of their drives,
4697    then blame goes here (the BIOS does the byte swapping for you,
4698    apparently!)
4699   
4700    Function ataSmartSupport now looks at correct bits in drive
4701    identity structure to verify first that these bits are valid,
4702    before using them.
4703   
4704    Function ataIsSmartEnabled() written which uses the Drive ID state
4705    information to tell if SMART is enabled or not.  We'll carry this
4706    along for the moment without using it.
4707
4708    Function ataDoesSmartWork() guaranteed to work if the device
4709    supports SMART.
4710
4711    Replace some numbers by #define MACROS
4712
4713    Wrote Function TestTime to return test time associated with each
4714    different type of test.
4715
4716    Thinking of the future, have added a new function called
4717    ataSmartStatus2().  Eventually when I understand how to use the
4718    TASKFILE API and am sure that this works correctly, it will
4719    replace ataSmartStatus().  This queries the drive directly to
4720    see if the SMART status is OK, rather than comparing thresholds to
4721    attribute values ourselves. But I need to get some drives that fail
4722    their SMART status to check it.
4723

4731
4732    Put project home path into all source files near the top
4733    Corrected typos in the documentation
4734    Modified Makefile so that Mandrake Cooker won't increment version number
4735    (unless they happen to be working on my machine, which I doubt!)
4736

4742    print timestamps for error log to msec precision
4743
4744    added -m option for Hitachi disks that store power on life in
4745    minutes
4746
4747    added -L option for printing self-test error logs
4748
4749    in -l option, now print power on lifetime, so that one can see
4750    when the error took place
4751

4760    vulnerability
4761
4762    expanded and corrected documentation
4763
4764    fixed problem with smartd.  It did not actually call
4765    ataSmartEnable()!  Since the argument was left out, the test
4766    always suceeded because it evaluated to a pointer to the function.
4767
4768    smartd: closed open file descriptors if device does not support
4769    smart. Note: this still needs to be fixed for SCSI devices
