mpt-status: get status of LSI 1030 RAID (mptlinux, fusion, mpt, ioc) controller
This driver has many names. As best I understand their use: LSI 1030 The make and model of the controller mptlinux The name of the driver distribution. /proc/mpt/version might say, for example, mptlinux-2.05.11.03. Fusion The trade name for the chipset (?). The driver distribution, though called mptlinux, actually lives in drivers/message/fusion. mpt Message Passing Technology; the prefix used for all things that related to the driver. The /proc device is /proc/mptctl, for example. ioc The name of the controller within Linux. For example the first controller is ioc0.
