Windows 2008 64 Bit Driver for PERC H310/H710/H710P/H810 Controllers

Windows 2008 64 Bit Driver for PERC H310/H710/H710P/H810 Controllers

Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes:
1) Improve Sequential Write performance.
2) Interrupt handling asynchronous to submissions, using single DPC only when necessary.
3) Coalescing on a per-LD basic with simpler and faster SGL building.
4) Streamline IO path to avoid unnecessary calls to get physical addresses.
5) Single INF file that handles both x86 and x64 installations.
6) Support SRB_FUNCTION_FLUSH by translating to DCMD flush commands, with registry ("NoSrbFlush") switch to disable.
7) Added timer to adapter restart to avoid polling for firmware to be ready (causes exceptions if debugger is attached).
8) Changed calculation of BusyCount used when pausing input requests to use maximum of 25% of (maxrequests-4), with starting value of 10.
9) Removed unnecessary aborting of the AEN and MAP commands upon shutdown, but transition to ready for crash dump.
10) Fixed OCR to synchronize with MSI interrupts.
11) Wrap MSI message used if not enough queues supported, instead of defaulting to 0.
12) Added "NoBusyWait" registry switch to not call StorPortBusyWait() when submit queue is full (iMR products only), and instead just return IO BUSY with QUEUE_FULL.
13) Initialization timeout increase from 5 to 60 seconds.
14) Fixed shutdown/hibernate defects.
15) Checked NULL pointer before attempting coalescing.
16) Removed setting device queues for physical devices - path 0.
17) Added IOCTL for getting and setting driver parameters from userland.
18) Changed Registry MSIqueue depth to unsigned char.
Enhancements: NA
