Hi Misc!

We have some older HP Dl360, Dl380 G4 machines with Smart Array 6i
controllores w/o battery backed cache.

The disk performance in this case is really poor, for examle the
disklabel operation on a 72GB disk lasted for about 5 mins.

I found a commit in a NetBSD ciss driver (which is a port of OpenBSD
driver), that solve the problem i think:

http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/ic/ciss.c?rev=1.23&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup&only_with_tag=MAIN

The problem is, that the NetBSD scsi midlayer is very different from
the OpenBSD, so is it possible to integrate this patch? My C and
OpenBSD internals knowledge is not enough for this task.

PS: Yes i know, my english is terrible.

thx
