|TRAN_START(9E)||Driver Entry Points||TRAN_START(9E)|
#include <sys/scsi/scsi.h> int prefixtran_start(struct scsi_address *ap, struct scsi_pkt *pkt);
tran_start() must perform the necessary operations on the HBA hardware to transport the SCSI command in the pkt structure to the target/logical unit device specified in the ap structure.
If the flag FLAG_NOINTR is set in pkt_flags in pkt, tran_start() should not return until the command has been completed. The command completion callback pkt_comp in pkt must not be called for commands with FLAG_NOINTR set, since the return is made directly to the function invoking scsi_transport(9F).
When the flag FLAG_NOINTR is not set, tran_start() must queue the command for execution on the hardware and return immediately. The member pkt_comp in pkt indicates a callback routine to be called upon command completion.
Refer to scsi_pkt(9S) for other bits in pkt_flags for which the HBA driver may need to adjust how the command is managed.
If the auto_rqsense capability has been set, and the status length allocated in tran_init_pkt(9E) is greater than or equal to sizeof(struct scsi_arq_status), automatic request sense is enabled for this pkt. If the command terminates with a Check Condition, the HBA driver must arrange for a Request Sense command to be transported to that target/logical unit, and the members of the scsi_arq_status structure pointed to by pkt_scbp updated with the results of this Request Sense command before the HBA driver completes the command pointed by pkt.
The member pkt_time in pkt is the maximum number of seconds in which the command should complete. Timeout starts when the command is transmitted on the SCSI bus. A pkt_time of 0 means no timeout should be performed.
For a command which has timed out, the HBA driver must perform some recovery operation to clear the command in the target, typically an Abort message, or a Device or Bus Reset. The pkt_reason member of the timed out pkt should be set to CMD_TIMEOUT, and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_TIMEOUT. If the HBA driver can successfully recover from the timeout, pkt_statistics must also be OR'ed with one of STAT_ABORTED, STAT_BUS_RESET, or STAT_DEV_RESET, as appropriate. This informs the target driver that timeout recovery has already been successfully accomplished for the timed out command. The pkt_comp completion callback, if not NULL, must also be called at the conclusion of the timeout recovery.
If the timeout recovery was accomplished with an Abort Tag message, only the timed out packet is affected, and the packet must be returned with pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_ABORTED and STAT_TIMEOUT.
If the timeout recovery was accomplished with an Abort message, all commands active in that target are affected. All corresponding packets must be returned with pkt_reason, CMD_TIMEOUT, and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_TIMEOUT and STAT_ABORTED.
If the timeout recovery was accomplished with a Device Reset, all packets corresponding to commands active in the target must be returned in the transport layer for this target. Packets corresponding to commands active in the target must be returned returned with pkt_reason set to CMD_TIMEOUT, and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_DEV_RESET and STAT_TIMEOUT. Currently inactive packets queued for the device should be returned with pkt_reason set to CMD_RESET and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_ABORTED.
If the timeout recovery was accomplished with a Bus Reset, all packets corresponding to commands active in the target must be returned in the transport layer. Packets corresponding to commands active in the target must be returned with pkt_reason set to CMD_TIMEOUT and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_TIMEOUT and STAT_BUS_RESET. All queued packets for other targets on this bus must be returned with pkt_reason set to CMD_RESET and pkt_statistics OR'ed with STAT_ABORTED.
Note that after either a Device Reset or a Bus Reset, the HBA driver must enforce a reset delay time of 'scsi-reset-delay' milliseconds, during which time no commands should be sent to that device, or any device on the bus, respectively.
tran_start() should initialize the following members in pkt to 0. Upon command completion, the HBA driver should ensure that the values in these members are updated to accurately reflect the states through which the command transitioned while in the transport layer.
