 1The sym53c500_cs driver originated as an add-on to David Hinds' pcmcia-cs
 2package, and was written by Tom Corner (tcorner@via.at).  A rewrite was
 3long overdue, and the current version addresses the following concerns:
 4
 5	(1) extensive kernel changes between 2.4 and 2.6.
 6	(2) deprecated PCMCIA support outside the kernel.

 8All the USE_BIOS code has been ripped out.  It was never used, and could
 9not have worked anyway.  The USE_DMA code is likewise gone.  Many thanks
10to YOKOTA Hiroshi (nsp_cs driver) and David Hinds (qlogic_cs driver) for
11the code fragments I shamelessly adapted for this work.  Thanks also to
12Christoph Hellwig for his patient tutelage while I stumbled about.

14The Symbios Logic 53c500 chip was used in the "newer" (circa 1997) version
15of the New Media Bus Toaster PCMCIA SCSI controller.  Presumably there are
16other products using this chip, but I've never laid eyes (much less hands)
17on one.

19Through the years, there have been a number of downloads of the pcmcia-cs
20version of this driver, and I guess it worked for those users.  It worked
21for Tom Corner, and it works for me.  Your mileage will probably vary.
