Revision History
================

Version 10.4.6 April 12, 2007
-----------------------------
    Enhancements:
    ===========
     1.	Improve performance on PCI-express mobile devices when they are 
        interconnected with a certain mobile Intel chipset.

      Cause:
        There is an interoperability issue between the Broadcom
        LAN controllers and the Intel ICH7/8 that may cause the 
        Rx-performance at 100 Mbps to be lower then expected when
        L1 ASPM is enabled along with system CPU C3E, or C4, or C4E 
        or higher state.

      Change:
        Changed the driver to disable L1 ASPM during initialization
        and restore the configuration at the driver shutdown.

Version 10.4.5 March 26, 2007
-----------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : NDIS driver still uses VLAN ID from the preboot software   
       configuration when iSCSI boot fails and system boots to local
       Windows partition. (CQ#28878)

       Change: Changed the UNDI driver so that it invalidate the iSCSI block
       offset in the device's shared memory.

Version 10.4.4 February 13, 2007
--------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : NDIS driver failed initialization on port#0 when SoL and 
       iSCSI are enabled on the port#1 of BCM5704. (CQ#28268)

       Cause: During UNDI driver initialization, UNDI driver needs to halt 
       the RX and TX CPU so that it can load the light-weighted L2 firmware
       to RX CPU's scratchpad.  At this time, bootcode might be loading the
       ASF/IPMI firmware from the NVRAM to the scratchpad. In that scenario,
       the bootcode still owns the arbitration.  NDIS driver will fail 
       to acquire arbitration.

       Change: Changed the UNDI driver so that it will clean up NVRAM access 
       and release NVRAM arbitration#0 if NVRAM arbitration#0 is owned by the 
       bootcode after RX-CPU is halted.

Version 10.4.3 January 25, 2007
------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : Valid range for VLAN ID in MBA configuration menu is 
       too small (0..1023). (CQ#28249)

       Change: Changed MBA configuration code to increase valid VLAN 
       range to (0..4095).

Version 10.4.2 January 15, 2007
------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : PXE boot might fail in the following setup scenario  
         (CQ#27953):
         * DHCP relay agent is used since DHCP server is on
           different subnet with respect to the PXE client.
         * PXE server is on different subnet with respect 
           to the PXE client. 
         * IP address of relay agent and default router are different. 

       Cause: Base Code used IGADDR in the bootp field as default gateway
       IP address.  It should use Router DHCP option for default gateway
       IP address.  This causes TFTP packets routed to the wrong path.

       Change: Updated base code to initialize default gateway IP address  
       from the Router DHCP option if it's present. The changes are in 
       Base Code v1.0.9.

Version 10.4.1 January 8, 2007
------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : MBA configuration menu doesn't save Preboot WoL correctly
       for BCM5906M device. (CQ#28079)

       Cause: Parameter saving routine doesn't set WoL parameters correctly.

       Change: Fixed parameter saving routine for BCM5906M device so that 
       WoL can be saved correctly.

Version 10.4.0 January 4, 2007
------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : RMCP ping will timeout after SUT sits at the PXE menu
       for a long period time (e.g. about 10+ minutes). (CQ#27679)

       Cause: In the PXE menu, base code doesn't respond to ARP requests.

       Change: Modified the base code to respond to ARP requests when it's
       polling for keystrokes in the PXE menu.  The changes are in 
       Base Code v1.0.8.

    Enhancements:
    =============
    1. Updated copyright banner to reflect year Of 2007.
    2. Added support for BCM5756 and BCM5722 family devices.

Version 10.0.8 December 18, 2006
--------------------------------
    Fixes:
    ======      
    1. Problem : 5755M failing IEEE compliance on certain OEM platforms.
       (CQ#27832)

       Cause:
        The PHY trim registers needed to be modified.

       Change:
        Modified the UNDI driver to program the PHY trim registers per
        recommendation from phy engineering team.

Version 10.0.7 December 4, 2006
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : PXE doesn't work on BCM5787-based NICs which has buffered NVRAM.
      (CQ#27730) 

      Cause : There is a bug in the NVRAM initialization routine where it doesn't
      detect buffered NVRAM correctly for BCM5787 devices.  This issue was 
      introduced in PXE v10.0.6 after adding Microchip 24LC0x device support.

      Change : Fixed NVRAM initialization routine.

Version 10.0.6 November 16, 2006
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Saving parameters in MBA configuration menu might generate
      invalid checksum for code patch block of BCM5787 selfboot code if
      a newer version of selfboot firmware and the NVRAM device is Microchip 
      24LC0x.

      Cause : MBA driver didn't have support for Microchip 24LC0x devices
      and it didn't handle the dynamic offset of MBA configuration parameter
      correctly which depends on the number of code patches.

      Change : Added support for Microchip serial EEPROM devices and changed 
      the NVRAM initialization logic to determine dynamic offset of MBA
      configuration word correctly.

   2. Problem : MBA driver doesn't retrieve MBA configuration correctly when
      newer version of BCM5787 selfboot code is used. One of the common 
      symptoms is that MBA driver doesn't boot with configured boot 
      protocol.

      Change : Changed MBA code to determine dynamic offset of MBA configuration 
      word correctly.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Removed support for BCM5756 and BCM5722 family devices.

Version 10.0.5 November 13, 2006
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Netware Client32 driver does not transmit/receive on 
      5722 when PXE is enabled. (CQ#26992)

      Cause : PXE driver has a S/W workaround for BCM5721/51 A0 device 
      where it slows down the core clock before a GRC reset.  This 
      causes some problem with BCM5722 and BCM5756 devices. 

      Change: Removed this workaround since BCM5721/51 A0 is no longer 
      supported.

Version 10.0.4 October 30, 2006
-------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : MBA configuration menu fails to save parameters on the
      BCM5906-based and BCM5787-based (self-boot)platform that has serial 
      EEPROM protect. (CQ#27325)

      Change : Changed the NVRAM saving routine to disable write protect
      for BCM5906 devices and BCM5787-based (self-boot).

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced MBA menu-driven configuration code so that it prompts user
      to save changes if user presses ESC to exit when one or more changes
      were made. (CQ#26965)

Version 10.0.3 October 9, 2006
------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : UNDI driver will display bogus data on the Boot Protocol 
      Entry if it was configured to iSCSI Boot and image was configured 
      so that boot protocol is not configurable.  This problem only occurs
      with UNDI images.

      Change : Fixed the mapping logic so that mapping index is correct
      for UNDI images.

Version 10.0.2 October 6, 2006
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced to display MAC address of the device being configured 
      in the MBA configuration menu. (CQ#27029)

Version 10.0.1 September 28, 2006
---------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced ROM header utility (romhdr.exe) to allow user to configure 
      Boot Protocol option to be not configurable. Version of this utility 
      is v1.0.7.

      For instance,

      To disable MBA boot protocol configuration

               romhdr -v 0x14e4 -d 0x1677 -c 1 -i b57undie.lom -o rom.lom


      To enable MBA boot protocol configuration

               romhdr -v 0x14e4 -d 0x1677 -c 0 -i b57undie.lom -o rom.lom


   2. Updated MBA configuration menu code to lock MBA boot protocol 
      configuration if it's enabled in the image.

Version 10.0.0 September 19, 2006
---------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added support for BCM5906,BCM5756, and BCM5722 family devices.

   2. Enabled AUTO-MDIX mode when the link is in forced speed.  This allows 
      straight-through cable to be used in forced speed configuration.

Version 9.7.10 September 15, 2006
---------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : UNDI driver will hang up if BCM5714S/15S is connected to
      Marvell media conversion module and with no cable attached on the
      copper side. (CQ#26784)

      Cause : Timeout mechanism was not implemented correctly.
      
      Change : Fixed the timeout mechanism.

Version 9.7.9 August 25, 2006
-----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Removed support for BCM5906 and BCM5756 family devices.

   2. Changed MBA configuration menu to use "Ctrl-K" to invoke 
      iSCSI configuration program.

Version 9.7.8 August 14, 2006
-----------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : UNDI driver might not detect link correctly on BCM5714s/
      BCM5715s then the link partner is Marvell media conversion 
      module.

      Cause : This particular Marvell serdes might take up to 3 or more 
      seconds to AUTONEG  after a valid link is present.
      
      Change : Changed the UNDI driver so that the timeout for BCM5714s/
      BCM5715s PHY link detection is increased from 500ms to 8 seconds.

Version 9.7.7 August 10, 2006
-----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced MBA configuration program to invoke iSCSI configuration 
      program for channel#1 only if ISCSI Configuration block for channel#1 
      exists.

Version 9.7.6 August 7, 2006
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Driver doesn't detect link correct when autonegotiation of 
      link partner is disabled for BCM5906 devices.

      Cause : BCM5906 PHY core doesn't report highest common denominator (HCD)
      in PHY register 0x19 when AUTONEG is not enabled at link partner.

      Change : For BCM5906 devices, if HCD is not available (value of zero),
      then driver determines link speed by looking at other status bits that
      are specific to BCM5706 PHY core.

Version 9.7.5 August 1, 2006
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Link timeout might be short and inaccurate for BCM5906 devices.

      Cause : Free running timer in BCM5906 runs at a fixed-rate at 25MHz core
      clock.

      Change : Changed time calabrating routine to use correct scaling factor.

   2. Problem : non-MBA images (b57pxee.lom, b57pxee.nic, etc...) don't display
      iSCSI boot as boot protocol. (CQ#26121)

      Change: Fixed to MBA init code not to overwrite boot protocol as PXE
      in case of non-MBA images.

Version 9.7.4 July 27, 2006
---------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced driver to enable Auto MDIX when link is forced at either
      10Mbps or 100Mbps on BCM5906 devices. (CQ#25849)

Version 9.7.3 July 14, 2006
---------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added support for BCM5756 devices.

Version 9.7.2 July 13, 2006
---------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced UNDI initialization code so that it can be forced to run
      on a particular device with a given PCI bus/device/function number.
      This allows software quality group to test devices designed for 
      LOM application only.

Version 9.7.1 July 13, 2006
---------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added support for BCM5906 devices (LOM only).

Version 9.7.0 June 29, 2006
---------------------------
   Enhancements: 
   ============
     1. Enhanced the bootstrap menu processing logic in the base code to
        poll UNDI interface for Rx packets so that IPMI/ASF traffic is 
        not blocked. The changes are in the Base Code v1.0.7.

Version 9.4.5 May 25, 2006
--------------------------
   Enhancements: 
   ============
     1. Enhanced driver to initialize the PHY DSP parameters to resolve
        an issue where link has problem  acquiring 1000T link when link 
        partner jitter is above IEEE limit on 5755, 5754,and 5787 
        controllers. (CQ#24525)

Version 9.4.4 May 17, 2006
--------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : PXE failed to boot to server if Server IP address (option 54)
      is different in DHCP and BINL phase. (CQ#24848)

      Cause : During BINL (Boot Information Negotiation Layer) phase, base 
      code checks to make sure Server IP address in the BINL response is the 
      same as the Server IP address in DHCP phase.  If it's different, then 
      it doesn't accept the BINL response.  This can be different and valid 
      in some configurations.

      Change : Changed the base code so that it doesn't have to validate the 
      Server IP address in BINL phase.

Version 9.4.3 May 11, 2006
--------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added support for BCM5786 device which is configured for self-boot ROM. 
      (CQ#24528)

Version 9.4.2 April 14, 2006
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added VLAN support.

   2. Enhanced DHCP logic in the base code so that it will only 
      wait for up to 4 seconds to send out DHCP requests after one
      or more DHCP offers are received.

Version 9.4.1 March 21, 2006
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added support for BCM5786 family devices.
   
   2. Enhanced PXE initialization code to display a warning message if 
      the Device ID of the device doesn't match with the Devide ID field
      in the PCI ROM header. (CQ#23958)

Version 9.4.0 March 13, 2006
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Added back support for BCM5755 family devices.

Version 9.0.12 February 27, 2006
--------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Removed support for BCM5755 family devices.

Version 9.0.11 February 9, 2006
-------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Removed iSCSI support from PCI legacy device to keep the memory 
      footprint small for PCI device binary images.

Version 9.0.10 January 26, 2006
-------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Users cannot invoke iSCSI configuration program via "F7"
      on some systems.

      Cause : Some BIOS's don't return "F7" keystroke via INT16h services.

      Change : Changed MBA configuration menu to use "Ctrl-I" to invoke 
      iSCSI configuration program.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced MBA configuration menu so that it will load iSCSI 
      configuration program to 5000:0 if system doesn't support 
      PMM (Post Memory Manager).

Version 9.0.9 January 23, 2006
-------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhanced MBA configuration menu to load iSCSI configuration program 
      if it's available in the NVRAM.

Version 9.0.8 January 11, 2006
-------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Changed PXE driver so that H/W fix for intermittent false link   
      detection is not enabled for BCM5780S devices.  

Version 9.0.7 January 10, 2006
------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Updated Copyright banner to reflect year Of 2006.

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : PXE intermittently doesn't detect link correctly in
      BCM5714/15 Serdes device family.

      Cause : It's a hardware problem where PHY status register 
      doesn't indicate valid link intermittently.

      Change : Changed PXE driver to enable the H/W fix and query
      link status from the MAC status register.

Version 9.0.6 November 14, 2005
-------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Saving of PXE configuration in Ctrl-S menu hangs on 
      BCM5755/BCM5754/BCM5787 devices if the NVRAM type is ST Flash.

      Cause : Nvram WRITE routine sends WREN to the flash which is 
      not neccesary for the flash interface for these device families.

      Change : Changed Nvram WRITE routine not to send WREN to these
      families of devices.

Version 9.0.5 November 1, 2005
------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Saving of PXE configuration in Ctrl-S menu hangs on 
      BCM5714/BCM5715/BCM5780 devices if the NVRAM type is ST Flash.
      (CQ#14536)

      Cause : PXE initialization didn't support ST Flash and didn't 
      reconfigure the Flash Interface for WRITE operation  when ST 
      flash was detected.

      Change : Changed PXE initialization code to support ST Flash
      devices.

Version 9.0.4 October 26, 2005
------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : PXE hangs during PXE loading with 5754 devices.
      (CQ#14464)

      Cause : BCM5754's Flash interface is different from BCM5787's 
      and the same as BCM5755's.

      Change : Changed flash interface routine to use correct interface.

Version 9.0.3 October 19, 2005
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   ============
   1. Remove iSCSI ROM support for PCI devices to keep ROM size smaller.

Version 9.0.2 October 18, 2005
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   ============
   1. Removed PHY BER software workaround for BCM5755/BCM5787/BCM5754 
      family devices.

Version 9.0.1 October 18, 2005
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   ============
   1. Added support for iSCSI as one of the boot protocol.  iSCSI option 
      is only available if ISCSI image is found in the NVRAM.

Version 9.0.0 October 17, 2005
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5755/BCM5787/BCM5714S/BCM5715S/
      BCM5754 family devices.

      Change : Changed PXE init code to support above devices.

Version 8.3.7 October 17, 2005
------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Removed support for BCM5755/BCM5787/BCM5714S/BCM5715S 
      family devices.

      Change : Changed PXE init code to not support above devices.

Version 8.3.6 September 28, 2005
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : System hangs when ASF and PXE are enabled on BCM5755 A0
      devices. (CQ#14192)

      Cause : There is a bug in Firmware Resume Workaround routine which
      doesn't clear out the GRC bus by reading a "zero" register before 
      a Resume Signature is deposited. Current workaround routine reads
      the "zero" register after the resume signature is deposited.

      Change : Changed  Firmware Resume Workaround routine to
      read a "zero" register before a Resume Signature is deposited.

Version 8.3.5 September 26, 2005
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : UNDI takes long time to determine presense of link.

      Cause : Incorrect delay routine is called.  This problem was 
      introduced in v8.3.4.

      Change : Changed UNDI code to use correct/accurate delay routine.

Version 8.3.4 September 22, 2005
--------------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : Link comes up at 10Mbps HD after PXE is loaded and before 
      driver is loaded. (CQ#13704)

      Cause : There is a timing issue in MDIO block where software doesn't 
      read correct data when this block indicates that data is ready. This
      causes driver to write invalid data to PHY register in a Read-Modify-
      Write operation.

      Change : Changed the PHY register reading routine to read MDIO 
      register one more time after MDIO register indicates that data is
      ready.

Version 8.3.3 September 20, 2005
--------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5755 family devices.

      Change : Changed PXE init code to support above devices.

Version 8.3.2 September 06, 2005
--------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5787 family devices.

      Change : Changed PXE init code to support above devices.

Version 8.3.1 August 31, 2005
-----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5903M.

      Change : Changed PXE init code to support above devices.

Version 8.3.0 August 25, 2005
-----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: DOS UNDI might hang in some specific systems/environments
      where it doesn't handle spurious interrupts. (CQ#13762)
      
      Cause: When optimization code path is taken, there is a bug in the
      UNDI driver in which it might not claim it's the source of interrupt. 
      It indicates to upper layer driver (e.g Universal NDIS2 driver) that 
      it's not the source of interrupt.  In some systems, however, the last 
      default handler (BIOS or O/S) of the interrupt handler chain doesn't 
      send EOI (End-Of-Interrupt) to the PIC (Programmable Interrupt 
      Controller).  This prevents the driver not getting any more 
      interrupts even the device still generates interrupt.

      Change: Implement logic so that it always claims its interrupt 
      when optimization path is taken.

   Enhancements:
   =============
    1. Enhanced to provide a way for the BIOS to select Boot protocol
       during PXE ROM initialization. (CQ#13671)

       BIOS sets up the following registers before passing control
       to PXE initialization entry point:

        AX    : Contains PCI bus/device/function number.
        ES:DI : Pointer to System BIOS Plug and Play Installation Check 
                Structure.
        ECX   : 0x50524f54 ("PROT") 
        SI    : bit 2..0 = 000b - PXE 
                           001b - RPL 
                           010b - BOOTP
                           011b - iSCSI

       If the signature in ECX is valid, this parameter overwrites the 
       configuration in the NVRAM.

   2. Request: Added support for BCM5714,BCM5714S,BCM5715, BCM5715S.
      
      Change : Changed PXE init code to support above devices.

Version 8.2.6 July 20, 2005
---------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Removed support for BCM5714,BCM5714S,BCM5715, BCM5715S.
      
      Change : Changed PXE init code to not support above devices.


Version 8.2.5 June 10, 2005
---------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Channel 1 of HTLE device doesn't boot based on configured
      Boot Protocol. It instead boots with configured Boot Protocol of 
      channel 0. (CQ#13114)

      Change: Changed PXE init code to use correct configured Boot Protocol 
      for channel 1.

Version 8.2.4 June 1, 2005
--------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE doesn't detect link with some of the switches 
      (e.g Dell 5224) that only advertise Half Duplex Capability in 
      Fiber mode. This is definitely a bug in the Dell switch.  All
      fiber ports shouldn't advertise Half Duplex capability ONLY.

      Cause: By default, Serdes only advertises Full Duplex.

      Change: Changed UNDI driver to advertise both Full and Half duplex
      capability.  This is purely a S/W workaround for Dell's issue so 
      that link can be accomplished.  Regardless it's established at 
      Half or Full duplex, MAC still runs at Full duplex mode since it 
      doesn't do CSMA at the MAC level when it's in Serdes mode.

Version 8.2.3 May 27, 2005
--------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: ISCSI boot initiator cannot connect ISCSI target when it runs
      over UNDI driver with BCM5704s. (CQ#13008)

      Cause: Serdes autonegotiation is done in the PXE firmware.  When link 
      partner is configured with AUTONEG off, when firmware takes about 1 to 
      1.5 seconds to force the link up via fallback mechanism.  UNDI driver 
      returns back to UNDI API users when it detects the cable is present and
      doesn't wait until firmware to complete autoneg.  UNDI API users might 
      transmit packets when link is not ready yet.  This causes packets to be 
      dropped.

      Change: Changed UNDI driver to wait until firmware to complete autoneg
      before returning back to UNDI API users.

Version 8.2.2 May 19, 2005
--------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Base code doesn't process DHCP Vendor Specific option 
      (option 43) if Class Identifier (DHCP option 60) option is 
      after option 43.

      Change: Changed the DHCP logic in the base code so that it will 
      process Vendor Specific option regardless where Class Identifier 
      in the DHCP packet.

Version 8.2.1 May 18, 2005
--------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhance UNDI driver to terminate a network boot with media failure if 
      cable (energy detect) is not detected on new generation of devices. 

   2. Enhance ROM header utility (romhdr.exe) to display detailed descriptions
      of a given image. Version of this utility is v1.6.
       For instance,

              romhdr -verbose -i b57undie.nic 

      The output is :

         Content of PCI Data Structure in ROM Image
         ===========================================
         Vendor ID          : 0x14e4
         Device ID          : 0x1677
         Code/Data Revision : 0x8201


         Content of Vendor Data Structure in ROM Image
         =============================================
         Flags            : 0x5800 ( NIC PCI-E )
         UNDI Code Size   : 17200
         UNDI Data Size   : 14720
         BC Code Size     : 0
         BC Data Side     : 0
         Version          : v8.2.1
 
       This indicates that this UNDI driver is for PCI-E NIC device. The 
       run-time memory footprint of this UNDI driver is about 31K.

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: With Hamilton/HTLE Serdes, UNDI driver doesn't detect link if 
      link partner has AUTONEG off. 
    
      Cause: Fallback mechanism doesn't work correctly.

      Change: Fixed fallback mechanism so that UNDI driver brings the link up
      if cable is attached and link partner is not sending config word.

Version 8.2.0 May 17, 2005
--------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Add support for Hamilton and HTLE devices.

   2. Request: Reduce driver image size.  See readme.txt for 
      correct usage of PXE driver. (CQ#12531)
      
      Change : Generated specific set of driver for PCI Express devices
      and PCI devices. Size of drivers for PCI express devices and 
      PCI/PCI-X devices are deduced approximately 10Kbytes and 
      2Kbytes, respectively. 

Version 8.1.54 April 28, 2005
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: TFTP download fails if TFTP responses are in multiple
      IP fragments. (CQ#12778)     
    
      Cause: Base code doesn't support TFTP read when TFTP responses are 
      in multiple IP fragments. 

      Change: Added logic to handle IP reassembly when TFTP responses are 
      in multiple IP fragments and set IP reassembly timeout to 1 second.

Version 8.1.53 April 07, 2005
--------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Remove support for Hamilton and HTLE devices.

Version 8.1.52 March 25, 2005
-----------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE driver causes causing policy error in bit 31:28 of 
      register 0x7000.  This problem only occurs with Baxter devices 
      when address lockout feature is enabled.
    
      Cause: When Address Lockout feature is enabled, the NVRAM Access 
      register (0x7024) is not writable. If a write is attempted, a 
      policy error 0x9 will be posted in bit 31:28 of 0x7000.
    
      Change: Changed PXE driver so that it doesn't write to register 0x7024
      if address lockout feature is enabled on Baxter devices.
    
      Impact: This policy error status is originally designed for diagnostic 
      purpose. However, TPM software may use this status and when there is an 
      error, it shuts down the TPM software. This shutdown feature can be 
      disabled via the OTP. When it is disabled, the policy error has no 
      effect on operation of the device other than to make the most significant 
      nibble of 0x7000 non-zero.

Version 8.1.51 March 16, 2005
-----------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Add support for new device IDs, 5780 devices.  The Vendor/
      Device IDs for 5780 and 5780s are 0x14e4/0x166a and 0x14e4/0x166b,
      respectively.

Version 8.1.50 March 15, 2005
-----------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Add back support for Hamilton, HTLE, and Baxter devices.

Version 8.1.8 March 8, 2005
----------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE processes DHCP Vendor Specific option (option 43) when 
      Class Identifier (DHCP option 60) is not present or doesn't contain
      "PXEClient".

      Change: Changed the DHCP logic in the base code so that it only 
      processes Vendor Specific option when Class Identifier is present 
      and contains "PXEClient".

Version 8.1.7 February 28, 2005
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Remove support for Hamilton, HTLE, and Baxter devices.

   2. Request : Change driver so that it doesn't disable ASF/IPMI fix (set bit 
      18 of register 0x2018) for a problem where H/W generates double ACKs for
      a single request.

      Change : Change driver so that it doesn't write to register 0x2018 
      for Shasta, Baxter, and Hamilton devices.  ASF/IPMI firmware can 
      enable/disable this fix anytime by clearing/setting that bit.

   3. Enhance utility romhdr.exe (v1.0.5) to allow users to dump current
      Vendor/ID of given ROM image. 
 
      For instance,
         romhdr -verbose -i b57pxe.bin
   
      The output is shown as follows:

         Content of PCI Data Structure in ROM Image
         ===========================================
         Vendor ID          : 0x14e4
         Device ID          : 0x1645
         Code/Data Revision : 0x8107
         
Version 8.1.6 February 25, 2005
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE hangs after BootIt utility to cycle through BIOS 
      sequence. (CQ# 12247)

      Cause : During the boot sequence, devices on PCI slots get
      reset.  It causes the indirect access setting cleared.
  
      Change: Changed PXE init code to re-enable indirect access
      before reloading run-time code from the NIC.

Version 8.1.5 February 9, 2005
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: MBA doesn't work with Hamilton/HTLE A1 or newer
      devices.

      Cause : ASIC IDs for Hamilton and HTLE A1 or newer have been  
      changed from 5 to 9 and 8, respectively.
  
      Change: Changed PXE driver to accommodate the ASIC ID changes.

Version 8.1.4 January 11, 2005
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: MBA doesn't work with Hamilton devices.

      Cause : There is an ASIC problem where the device misdetects
      parity errors.  This causes DMA engine to halt after first 
      DMA write transaction.
  
      Change: Added software workaround by disabling device's parity 
      detection logic.

Version 8.1.3 January 5, 2005
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Device still generates interrupts when device is in  
      the CLOSE state when there is incoming traffic. This should only
      occur with firmware-based PXE NICs such as BCM5701/02/03/04.
      
      Cause: In the receiving path, firmware doesn't check for value 
      of mailbox before DMAing status block to the host memory.

      Change: Changed PXE firmware to DMA status block to the host 
      memory only when interrupt mailbox is zero.

   2. Problem: MBA parameters are always retrieved/stored from/to NVRAM
      of channel 0 region of Hamilton devices. (CQ#11806)
      
      Cause: Ctrl-S menu initializing routine doesn't consider Hamilton
      as dual MAC device.    

      Change: Changed Ctrl-S menu initializing routine so that it 
      considers Hamilton as dual MAC device in addition to BCM5704.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Updated Copyright banner to reflect year Of 2005.

Version 8.1.2 December 30, 2004
--------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: UDP_WRITE API service sends out oversized packets during
      IP fragmentation process if the datagram is larger than 1500.
      (CQ#11775)
      
      Cause: UNDI driver incorrectly returns MTU field as 1514 instead of 
      1500 in GET_ADAPTER_INFORMATION API.

      Change: Changed UNDI driver to correcly return correct value for 
      MTU field in GET_ADAPTER_INFORMATION API.

Version 8.1.1 December 16, 2004
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for Baxter family devices (BCM5752,BCM5752M)

      Change : Changed PXE code to support Baxter hardware.

Version 8.1.0 November 11, 2004
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for Hamilton family devices (BCM5714,BCM5714S,
      BCM5715, BCM5715S).
      
      Change : Changed PXE code to support Hamilton hardware.

Version 7.7.2 November 10, 2004
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Minimize usage of UMB memory space.
      
      Change : Changed PXE initialization code to initialize ROM size to 
      512-byte alignment instead of 2K-alignment when discarding unused
      init code.  In addition, NVRAM driver code is reorganized so that 
      programming and initializing code are discarded after ROM 
      initialization is done.  Usage of UMB is reduced from 8K to 5.5K 
      per NIC.

   2. Request: Preserve content of lower 14-bit of Serdes control 
      register which includes parameters of Predriver current, 
      Tx driver current, and pre-emphasis coefficient.
      
      Change : Changed PXE firmware to preserve content of lower 14-bit 
      of Serdes control when TX Serdes overwrite feature is enabled.

Version 7.7.1 November 05, 2004
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added ST M45PExxx/Saifun SA25Fxxx/AT25F512N support for 
      Shasta family devices.

        The following is the supported NVRAM summary:
    
       SO   :   Bit 25, Flash Size,     internal pull-up 
       SI   :   Bit 24, Protected Mode, internal pull-down
       SCLK :   Bit 1,  Buffered Mode,  internal pull-down
       CS   :   Bit 0,  Flash Mode,     internal pull-down

  [SO,SI,SCLK,CS] Device          Description
  --------------- ------------  ----------------------
     1000         AT24C512      SEEPROM, AT24Cxxx, any size              
     0111         SA25F0xx      Saifun SA25F005/010/020 (512KB/1MB/2MB)
     1011         AT45DB011B    Atmel Buffered 1MB Flash
     1101         ST M45PEx0    ST M45PE80/M45PE40/M45PE20/M45PE10
                                8/4/2/1MB Flash
      
      Change : Modified Flash driver to support above devices.  

Version 7.7.0 September 23, 2004
--------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5751 devices in 12x12 packages.
  
      Change : Changed PXE code to recognize devices with PCI vendor ID/device
      ID of 0x14e4/0x16f7,0x14e4/0x16fd,0x14e4/0x16fe, and 0x14e4/0x16dd.

   2k
. Request: Added interface to support ISCSI boot.
  
      Change : Added EXTENDED INITIALIZE API to allow ISCSI boot software 
      to initialize the device with ISCSI parameters.

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem:  IPMI-PT path doesn't work when PXE is initialized first time.

      Cause : There is a synchronization issue between IPMI firmware and PXE in 
      which PXE driver can overwrite the BMC MAC address which is previously
      programmed by the IPMI firmware.

      Change : Changed the PXE code to indicate to IPMI firmware when it's done
      initialization and before polling for link state.

   2. Problem:  PXE doesn't display PFN (PCI Function Number) correctly 
      when PCI bus number contains HEX number. (CQ10831)
  
      Change : Fixed converting routine to handle HEX number correctly.

Version 7.6.3 June 22, 2004
---------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Enhanced PXE driver so that PHY is not always reset
      when ASF is enabled.
  
      Change : Modified PXE code so that driver doesn't always reset 
      PHY when ASF is enabled and restarts autoneg if PHY advertising
      registers were not set to advertise maximum capability by 
      running software entity before PXE.

Version 7.6.2 June 17, 2004
---------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added Capacitive Coupling support for BCM5705 devices.
  
      Change : Changed PXE code to enable capacitive coupling feature on 
      the PHY if this feature is administratively enabled.

Version 7.6.1 June 1, 2004
---------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5789 devices.
  
      Change : Changed PXE code to recognize devices with PCI vendor ID/device
      ID of 0x14e4/0x169d.


Version 7.6.0 May 28, 2004
---------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for BCM5751F devices.
  
      Change : Changed PXE code to recognize devices with PCI vendor ID/device
      ID of 0x14e4/0x167e.

Version 7.5.15 May 13, 2004
----------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : CIOBE parts with multiple split transactions enabled may 
      cause system to hang.

      Cause : CIOBE has an errata related to the multiple split transaction 
      feature.

      Change:
           Changed the UNDI driver to disable multiple split transaction 
      feature in CIOBE parts.

      Impact:
            None.

   2. Problem : PXE cannot returns control to BIOS when the BIOS stack is 
      corrupted on some rare platforms.  This is a software workaround for
      system BIOS issue.
  
      Cause : Some BIOS incorrectly setup processor stack space which is 
      above 0:7c00.  It should setup the stack space below 0:7c00.  
      NBP (Network Boot Program) might corrupt this stack space and then 
      returns back to the PXE's Initial Program Loader.  Since BIOS stack 
      is corrupted, PXE cannot return control back to the BIOS.

      Change:  Changed the PXE's IPL code to detect if the BIOS stack is 
      corrupted or not.  If it's corrupted, then PXE's IPL code returns 
      control back to the system BIOS via INT 18h instead of a far return.

Version 7.5.14 April 21, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem : TFTP download fails if TFTP server doesn't response to 
      the first TFTP ACK. (CQ#9924)

      Cause : This is a bug in the base code. Whenever the TFTP server 
      doesn't response the first TFTP ack, the TFTP open code intends to 
      send TFTP Read Request again with different UDP source port number 
      (incremented by 1).  There is a bug in the code where it doesn't 
      reinitialize the packet as TFTP Read Request packet.  Therefore, it 
      sends out the packet as TFTP ACK packet since the last packet being 
      sent was a TFTP ACK.

      Change : Changed TFTP open routine to reinitialize the packet as TFTP
      Read Request whenever a read request is transmitted. 

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Change Base code banner to have Broadcom copyright and use standard
      version number.

Version 7.5.13 April 19, 2004
-------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enhance UNDI driver to have better a Bit Error Rate (BER) 
      performance for BCM5705 and Shasta family devices.

      Change : Changed UNDI driver to initialize the PHY core in 
      order to adjust the bias current for the ADC but not the 
      hybrid or DPLL.

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: UNDI driver might not detect link if RJ-45 cable
      has broken pairs with Shasta family devices.

      Cause : Ethernet@WireSpeed is not enabled and UNDI doesn't
      wait long enough before declaring no link.

      Change : Changed UNDI driver to enable Ethernet@WireSpeed and
      wait longer before declaring no link.

Version 7.5.12 March 26, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Shasta shared traffic/link LED mode doesn't work.

      Cause : There is a bug in Shasta A0/A1 (MAC block) where shared 
      traffic/link LED mode doesn't work correctly.  

      Change : Changed UNDI driver to program the device to use this feature
      provided by the PHY block.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.11 March 26, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: RIS instalation fails with BCM5751 A1. (CQ#9619)

      Cause : There is a bug in UNDI GET_NIC_TYPE API routine where it always
      returns PCI revision ID with a value of 0.  
 
      Change : Fixed GET_NIC_TYPE API routine so that it returns correct
      revision ID of the device.

      Impact :
               None.

   Enhancements:
   =============

   1. Enhanced so that UNDI driver doesn't program LED mode for Shasta family 
      devices. LED mode is now programmed only by the boot code firmware.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.10 March 1, 2004
-------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============

   1. Added support so that PXE can run concurrently with ASF for 
      BCM575x/BCM572x.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.9 Feburary 23, 2004
-------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Enable H/W fixes for BCM5721/51.

      Change : Changed PXE code to enable Rx FIFO fix.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.8 Feburary 17, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PCI Express link drops after a GRC reset.

      Change : BCM5721/51 A1 or new silicon has fixes so that PCI Express
      link is maintained after a GRC reset.  Changed PXE code to enable this 
      fix so that PCI express link doesn't drop.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.7 January 28, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: If Boot Protocol is configured to other than PXE, then
      network boot will be PXE protocol in the second network boot
      retry. (CQ#9305)

      Cause  : Technically, this is a bug in the bootcode since it doesn't
      put proper boot protocol information into shared memory under PXE
      info after a software reset.  

      Change : Changed PXE code to access NVRAM directly to extract boot
      protocol information, PXE speed, etc...

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.6 January 23, 2004
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: System generates a NMI whenever driver issues software 
      GRC reset.  

      Cause  : There is a bug in the BCM5751/21 A0 silicon where PCI-E
      link drops whenever device GRC reset issued.  This causes device
      not generating Completion TLP associated with the last Configuration
      Write to the chipset. Due to this abnomality, the chipset will 
      generate a NMI as fatal completion timeout error.

      Change : Added a software workaround in PXE driver so that core clock
      is slowed down to 6.25MHz which will give some time for the PCI-E block 
      to send back Completion TLP to the chipset.

      Impact :
               None.

Version 7.5.5 January 14, 2004
-------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: After a GRC reset, link is dropped and therefore retrained 
      with link partner.  Link retrain might take up to 500ms.  If device 
      is accessed before link retrain is complete, system might lock up or 
      encounter fatal errors. This change only applies to BCM5751/21 
      (PCI express family) revision A0 devices..


      Change: Changed chip reset routine to delay 500ms after A GRC reset.

      Impact:
             None.

   2. Request: Update Copyright banner to reflect year Of 2004.

      Change:  Changed Copyright banners.

      Impact:
             None.

   3. Request: Add additional LED modes for BCM575x/2x family.

      Change:  Changed to support new LED modes.

      Impact:
             None.


Version 7.5.4 December 23, 2003
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Blink LED function doesn't work on a certain systems. (CQ#9054)

      Cause  : Keyboard input buffer is flushed first in the blinking LED 
      routine. However, keyboard buffer flushing routine might stuck in a 
      loop if there is a key returned via INT 16h AH=1.

      Change : Fixed the keyboard flushing routine so that INT 16h AH=0 is 
      used to retrieve the key if a key is available via INT 16h AH=1.

      Impact :
               None.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: After a GRC reset, link is retrained with link partner.  Link 
      retrain might take up to 300ms.  If device is accessed before link 
      retrain is complete, system might lock up.

      Change:  Changed chip reset routine to delay 300ms after a GRC reset.

      Impact:
             None.

Version 7.5.3 November 24, 2003
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ====== 
   1. Problem: System locks up when PXE boot is aborted or PXE server is not 
               found.  This problem only occurs with BCM5721/51-based 
               NICs/LOMs and PCI-E system is v1.0. (CQ#8917)

      Cause  : PXE exit code doesn't have the reset workaround for BCM5721/
               51-based NICs/LOMs.

      Change: Add reset workaround in PXE exit code.

      Impact:
               None.


Version 7.5.2 November 19, 2003
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE loader cannot load phase 2 of PXE run-time image.  PXE displays
               "!PXE structure was not found in UNDI driver code segment.".  This
               problem only occurs in BCM575x-based NICs. (CQ#8892)

      Cause  : NVRAM interface access has to enabled in order to read/write to 
               NVRAM.  PXE init code enables access during init time but is turned
               off later by the boot code.

      Change: Enable NVRAM access on every NVRAM lock and disable NVRAM access 
              on every NVRAM unlock.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 7.5.1 November 18, 2003
-------------------------------

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Add full support for BCM5751/21-based NICs/LOMs (PCI Express
               interface).

      Change:  Changed PXE to initialize proper register  setting for PCI express 
               interface.

      Impact:
             None.
   
   2. Request: Add Shared/Link Led option for BCM575x family.

      Change:  Initialize LED register based on NVRAM configuration.

      Impact:
             None.
   

Version 7.5.0 November 4, 2003
-------------------------------

   Fixes:
   =====
   1. Problem: Multicast MAC address is not filtered correctly if the most 
               significant bit (bit 7) of any byte in the multicast MAC address 
               is set. (CQ#8786)

      Cause  : Multicast filtering function in BCM570x uses hashing scheme of 
               CRC-32 value of the multicast MAC address.  There is a problem 
               in the CRC-32 calculating routine when the most significant 
               bit (bit 7) of any byte in byte stream is set.  

      Change: Fixed CRC-32 calculating routine.

      Impact:
               None.


   2. Problem: ASF/IPMI doesn't work if BIOS just calls UNDI interface to query
               MAC address and doesn't call UNDI interface to initialize the 
               interface for a network boot.

      Cause  : When UNDI API UNDI_GET_INFO is called, UNDI code halts CPUs so that
               there is no contention and PXE firmware will be loaded on.  

      Change : Changed UNDI shutdown routine so that CPUs are reset in the above
               scenario.

      Impact :
               None.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request:
             Add support for BCM575x-based NICs/LOMs.

      Change:
             Changed PXE code to recognize and support BCM575x-based 
             NICs/LOMS.

      Impact:
             None.


Version 7.0.2 September 22, 2003
-------------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request:
             Add support for BCM5705F-based NICs/LOMs.

      Change:
             Changed PXE code to recognize and support BCM5705F-based 
             NICs/LOMS.

      Impact:
             None.


Version 7.0.1 August 28, 2003
----------------------------

   Fixes:
   =====
   1. Problem: BCM5701-based NIC/LOM PXE might use zero MAC address 
               when it's used with older version of boot code.  This 
               will cause PXE to fail in network boot.  (CQ#8382)

      Cause  : PXE assumes that MAC address are programmed by the bootcode.
               However, older version of boot code doesn't program MAC
               address correctly in a certain scenario. PXE v6.8.1 should
               have fixed this problem. However, serial EEPROM driver has
               a bug which causes MAC address in the serial EEPROM cannot
               be read correctly.

      Change: Fixed serial EEPROM driver so that MAC address can be read
              correctly.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 7.0.0 August 18, 2003
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request:
             Improve bit error performance of 5703AX and 5704AX when used
             with long cable lengths.
      Change:
             Program the phy's ADC and Gamma registers to more optimum 
             settings.
      Impact:
             None.

   2. Request:
             Improve Serdes drive levels on 5704s.
      Change:
             Programed the serdes config registers so that SerDes' drive 
             transmission level is 1.2V.

      Impact:
             None. 

   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: UNDI initializing doesn't detect presence of base code if BIOS
               doesn't load base code into 2K-boundary of UMB.  This should
               only occur when split image is used.

      Cause  : UNDI initializing code scans for presence of base code in 
               2K-boundary.
  
      Change: UNDI initializing code is changed to scan for presence of
              base code in 512 byte boundary.

      Impact: None.


Version 6.8.3 August 5, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: One of the hardware fixes in BCM5704 B0 causes problem in some 
               of the PCI-X systems.
  
      Change: PXE driver is changed to disable this fix. 

      Impact: None.

Version 6.8.2 July 22, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: BCM5704-based LOM cannot be waken up after shutdown from DOS
               during PXE boot. This problem can only occur on systems that 
               don't issue a PCI reset to the LOM device during DOS shutdown. 
  
      Cause  : In SLIM PXE implementation, PXE firmware is loaded to the 
               RX-CPU to handle RX path traffic and other miscellaneous 
               management functions.  Boot code firmware, that monitors PCI
               main power going away and setup WoL, running on Rx-CPU no 
               longer runs.  

      Change: PXE firmware is changed to monitor presence of main PCI power in
              addition to its main function that handles Rx path traffic.
              If main power is detected going away, PXE firmware issues a 
              device reset so that bootcode can run again in order to setup WoL.

      Impact:
               None.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request:
               Enable hardware fixes in 5704_Bx parts for known 5704 Ax errata.
      Change:
               Added code to driver init routines to enable hardware fixes in
               5704 B0 silicon.  See 5704 errata for more details info about
               the changes/fixes in B0 silicon.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.8.1 July 10, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: PXE might use zero MAC address when it's used with older 
               version of boot code.  This will cause PXE to fail in 
               network boot.  This should only happen on a certain 
               LOM applications where WoL is disabled.
  
      Cause  : PXE assumes that MAC address are programmed by the bootcode.
               However, older version of boot code doesn't program MAC
               address correctly in a certain scenario.

      Change: If MAC registers contain zero MAC address, PXE will retrieve
              MAC address from the NVRAM directly.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.8.0 May 29, 2003
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Request to have RPL support only ROM image. (CQ#7895)

      Change:  Created a set of binary image with RPL support only.  Users 
               cannot configure Boot Protocol in Ctrl-S configuration menu.
               See readme.txt for detailed descriptions of RPL binary 
               images.

      Impact:
               None.


Version 6.2.10 May 12, 2003
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Allow users to turn off autonegotiation for fiber interface.

      Change:  Changed driver and firmware to allow users to configure 
               autonegotiation off.  This can be useful for some backplane
               applications where backplane switching ASIC has fiber
               AUTONEG turned off.

      Impact:
               None.

   2. Request: Reduce DHCP timeout of the last retry to 4s.

      Change:  Changed the base code so that DHCP timeout of the 
               last retry to 4s.  The new timeout is 4s,8s,16s,32s,4s.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.9 May 09, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: APITEST is intermittently slow with BCM5704 Serdes/
               CIOBE Serdes.

      Change:  Changed the firmware so that it will not perform
               autonegotiation when link is up and hardware 
               autonegotiation logic indicates AUTONEG complete.

      Impact:
               None.

   2. Problem: Link detection intermittently fails when ASF is enabled. 
               (CQ7759)

      Change:  Changed to stop Rx/Tx CPU before accessing PHY during
               initialization.  This is due to contention that 
               ASF firmware also polls for PHY registers.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.8 May 1, 2003
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Optimize to improve both Tx and Rx performance.

      Change:  Optimized code in the forwarding path.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.7 April 30, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Fixed a problem where dynamic 10/100 or 10/100/1000 phy auto-neg
               advertising based on GPIO2 state might not work correctly.  
               This issue was introduced in the phy workaround which was
               added in v6.2.6.  This problem only occurs on the platform 
               where GPIO2 state is used for dynamic PHY auto-neg.

      Change:  Changed the PHY lockup workaround code so that it restores 
               AUTONEG configuration.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.6 April 29, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: In some extremely rare situations, 5702/03/04 Copper NICs
               may not link up after a PHY reset.

      Cause: On some 5702/03/04 PHY cores, there is a small probability of
             lock up after a PHY reset.

      Change: Added code to detect PHY lock up after a PHY reset and
              reset again if lock up is detected.

      Impact: The added lock up detection and recovery code affects
              driver reset and link down events where PHY resets are
              performed.

   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added PXE version information in the standard PCI
               structure information.

      Change:  Added PXE revision in the "Revision Level of Code/Data"
               field of PCI data structure (offset 0x12).  This field
               is a 16-bit quantity and is encoded as follows:
                   bit 15..12 : Major version.
                   bit 11..8  : Minor version.
                   bit  7..0  : Build version.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.5 April 25, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: Upper 16-bit of register EAX might be corrupted after a PXE 
               API is called. (CQ #7617)

      Change:  Added logic to save and restore upper 16-bit of register EAX
               in PXE API routine.

      Impact:
               None.

   2. Problem: Under heavy traffic conditions, clients might lose connection
               intermittently during an overnight read/write test.  There is a 
               small timing window where packets are not processed in a timing 
               manner.  (CQ #7437)

      Change:  Added logic in the interrupt service routine so that status 
               block is checked again to see if any event pending before 
               exiting.
      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.4 April 22, 2003
----------------------------
   Enhancements:
   =============
   1. Request: Added support for dynamic 10/100 or 10/100/1000 phy auto-neg
               advertising for certain platforms.

      Change:  Added a check for the state of GPIO2 during link change events 
               and adjust auto-neg capability advertising accordingly.

      Impact:
               None.

Version 6.2.3 April 21, 2003
----------------------------
   Fixes:
   ======
   1. Problem: In some extremely rare situations, 5704 Copper NICs
               may not link up after a PHY reset.

      Cause: On some 5704 PHY cores, there is a small probability of
             lock up after a PHY reset.

      Change: Added code to detect PHY lock up after a PHY reset and
              reset again if lock up is detected.

      Impact: The added lock up detection and recovery code affects
              driver reset and link down events where PHY resets are
              performed.

Version 6.2.2: 
    1. Enhanced for a customer who doesn't want some particular 
       fields configurable in MBA configuration menu. (CQ7515)

Version 6.2.1:
    1. Removed device description banner per customer's request.(CQ7431)
    2. Fixed a problem where PXE client cannot connect to PXE server
       when BCM5704s connects to 3COM SuperStack 4900SX.(CQ7486)
    3. Fixed a problem in the base code where DHCP timeout doesn't 
       adhere to PXE spec.  The original timeouts are 2s,4s,8s,16s.
       The new timeouts are 4s,8s,16s,32s. (CQ7116)

Version 6.2.0:
    1. Added support for BCM5788.

Version 6.1.3:
    1. Fixed a problem where Ctrl-S doesn't work in remote keyboard 
       application.  This application returns keystrokes via BIOS 
       service INT 16h.  But it doesn't put keystrokes in keyboard 
       buffer in the Bios Data Area (BDA).

Version 6.1.2:
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE fails to work on BCM5701. (CQ7123)

Version 6.1.1:
    1. Fixed a problem where configuration doesn't take effect 
       immediately when boot protocol is changed from BOOTP to PXE or
       RPL to BOOTP. (CQ7074)
    2. Enhanced so that device description and device location (bus/
       device/function) are displayed in the banner and MBA configuration
       menu. (CQ7101)
    3. Enhanced so that users can blink LEDs of the device that is being
       configured in the MBA configuration Menu. (CQ4948)
    4. Fixed a problem where GPIO configuration is overwritten.  This 
       can cause a issue where preboot-WOL doesn't work in BCM5701-based 
       application. (CQ6904)
    5. Fixed a problem where system is locked up when parameters are 
       saved via F4 in MBA configuration menu.  This problem only occurs 
       in BCM5700 and BCM5701.
    6. Enhanced so that UNDI_GET_INFORMATION API call doesn't affect
       ASF and other firmware applications.  In some platforms, BIOS 
       loads UNDI and then issues UNDI_GET_INFORMATION API call to 
       retrieve adapter information without booting from the network
       with PXE.
    7. Enhanced romhdr.exe application so that it can handle image 
       size up to 128K.

Version 6.1.0:
    1. Added native BOOTP support. (CQ7005)

Version 6.0.3:
    1. Fixed a problem where Novell login after RPL download might
       cause system stack overflow in a certain systems. (CQ6534)
    2. Added support for family of BCM5705 A3 and newer.

Version 6.0.2:
    1. Fixed a problem where BCM5704 fails on multicast TFTP test when
       it's configured in half-duplex mode. There is a bug a in the base
       code where base code can drop packets.  If two packets are 
       received back-to-back, base-code will drop the second packet. 
       In this scenario, unicast and multicast TFTP packets are received 
       back-to-back.  UNDI indicates both packets to base code receive logic,
       but it drops the MTFTP packet. The fix is now implemented in the 
       base code (build 082f). (CQ6874)
    2. Fixed a problem where link failure is not detected in a timely
       manner if link is not configured to AUTONEG.  It might take up  
       to 30 seconds instead of 8 seconds. (CQ6877)
    3. Enhanced so that packet is always padded with 0's if the packet
       length is less than minimum ethernet packet size.  The padding
       is now padded by hardware ASICs instead of software.
    4. Fixed a problem where a PCI configuration parameter (cache line
       size and maximum latency timer) is not restored if PXE boot 
       is terminated due to user's abort or boot failure.
    5. Fixed a problem where RPL download might fail if other heavy 
       non-IPX traffic on the network. (CQ6844)

Version 6.0.1:
    1. Fixed a problem where system hangs at POST with b57pxe.bin 
       image. (CQ6802)

Version 6.0.0:
    1. Enhanced so that hot-key is configurable.  The choices for hot-keys 
       are Ctrl-S or Ctrl-B (default is Ctrl-S).
    2. Enhanced so that users can configure whether Setup Prompt is displayed
       or not.
    3. Fixed a typo in the copyright banner. (CQ6759)
    4. Added BCM5704 support.

Version 3.1.30:
    1. Enhanced so that users are still able to invoke MBA configuration 
       via Cltrl-S when timeout is set to 0 second. (CQ6598)
    2. Updated copyright banner to reflect year of 2003.

Version 3.1.29:

       to half-duplex mode. (CQ6086)
    2. Fixed a problem where BCM5704 fiber link intermittently loses 
       link on a certain systems. (CQ6465)

Version 3.1.26:
    1. Added support for new PCI devices (0x14e4/0x16c7,0x14e4/0x16c6,
       0x14e4/0x1696).

Version 3.1.25:
    1. Fixed a problem where MBA configuration menu cannot be involked 
       via Ctrl-S on a certain rare systems. (CQ6050)
    2. Fixed a problem where cable presence is not correctly detected
       when cable is broken (EthernetWireSpeed mode) and WOL is 
       enabled. (CQ6147)
    3. Added Broadcom revision to base code banner so that changes made
       by Broadcom can be kept track of.

Version 3.1.24:
    1. Enhanced to provide a way for the BIOS to control MBA configuration
       setup time. (CQ6069)
       BIOS sets up the following registers before passing control
       to PXE initialization entry point:

        AX    : Contains PCI bus/device/function number.
        ES:DI : Pointer to System BIOS Plug and Play Installation Check 
                Structure.
        ECX   : 0x46415354 if register SI is valid.
        SI    : 1 - BIOS requests quiet boot (Not show PXE banner).
                0 - BIOS request to show PXE banner and delay time is in 
                    bit 4..1 of register SI.

Version 3.1.23:
    1. Fixed a problem where Fiber autonegotiation might fail on a  certain
       switches. (CQ5923)
    2. Fixed a problem where boot entry might not show up on a certain
       system that don't support BBS. (CQ6146)
    3. Fixed a problem where PXE doesn't work with BCM5704 A2 Fiber.

Version 3.1.22:
    1. Added support for Netware RPL.  This allows RPL clients connecting
       to Netware server for remote booting/installation.

Version 3.1.21:
    1. Added support for BCM5705MFE.

Version 3.1.20:
    1. Added support CIOBE Serdes.
    2. Fixed a problem where UNDI API test fails on some of the TYAN 
       systems.

Version 3.1.19: 
    1. Fixed a problem where link speed doesn't take effect immediately
       when it's configured in MBA configuration menu. (CQ5878)
    2. Fixed a problem where UNDI might not work properly if UNDI APIs
       are called in a mixed sequence of real mode and protected mode.

Version 3.1.18: 
    1. Fixed a problem where system fails to boot with multicast
       TFTP on a certain system.  This is definitely a base code 
       issue. If two packets are received back-to-back, base-code
       will drop the second packet. In this scenerio, unicast and
       multicast TFTP packets are received back-to-back.  UNDI
       indicates both packets to base code receive logic, but it
       drops the MTFTP packet.  Workaround is put into UNDI to
       minimize impact on other UNDI implementation which might 
       assume this base code behavior. (CQ5617)

Version 3.1.17: 
    1. Fixed a problem where RPL doesn't work in LOM application.
       RPL logic is now in the UNDI code instead of the base code.
    2. Enhanced so that 1000MBps Full/1000Mbps Half option is not
       selectable in MBA configuration menu. (CQ5794)
    3. Fixed a problem where RPL doesn't shutdown gratefully if 
       download is not successful.

Version 3.1.16: 
    1. Added hot-key configuration menu support.  Configuration Menu can
       be invoked with Ctrl-S.

Version 3.1.15: 
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE/RPL client waits for a long time if 
       cable is not attached. (CQ5653 & CQ5588)
    2. Enhanced so that Broadcom PXE PnP description will have 
       version and PCI slot number (CQ 5552).
    3. Enhanced to display unique string for images with RPL support. 
      (CQ5553)

Version 3.1.14: 
    1. Added BCM5704 Fiber support.

Version 3.1.13: 
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE cannot establish link when it's 
       connected to Gigabit-only switch and ASF is enabled. (CQ5530)

Version 3.1.12: 
    1. Fixed a problem where API test intermittently fails
       with BCM5705. (CQ5006).

Version 3.1.11: 
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE doesn't work with RIS.
    2. Fixed a problem where multicast packets are not filtered
       correctly.

Version 3.1.10: 
    1. Fixed a problem in the base code where UDP_READ API routine
       doesn't receive packets correctly if there is other UDP traffic
       on the network. (CQ5403)

Version 3.1.9: 
    1. Fixed a problem in the base code so that GUID/UUID is displayed in
       correct format (GUID in wire format).

Version 3.1.8: 
    1. Added BCM5705 support.
    2. Fixed a problem where PXE hangs up in BCM5704 XBAR mode. (CQ5035)

Version 3.1.7: 
    1. Removed BCM5705 support.
    2. Fixed a problem where link presence is not detected correctly on 
       a certain systems. (CQ 5153)
    3. Added PCI reset workaround for BCM5704 A1.

Version 3.1.6: 
    1. Added support for Mini-PCI NICs.

Version 3.1.5: 
    1. Added BCM5901 support.
    2. Fixed a problem where UNDI code doesn't work with base code build 83
       in DOSUNDI mode.
    3. Fixed a problem where PXE might hang up if NVRAM ARB is not released  
       by other entities (boot code or ROM code).  This happens when NVRAM
       content is corrupted. (CQ4942)

Version 3.1.4: 
    1. Added BCM5705 support.

Version 3.1.3: 
    1. Enhanced to support BCM5703/BCM5703S.

    1. Enhanced so that PXE download is exited immediately if no link 
       is detected. (CQ3773)
    2. Fixed a problem where system hangs if F1 is hitted to retry
       when no flopy disk/harddisk (NIC only). (CQ4793)
    3. Fixed a problem where it fails to detect BBS capability when
       BBS version is newer than BBS v1.01.

Version 3.1.1: 
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE API test is slow on some IBM PCI-X systems.
       (CQ4734)
    2. Fixed a problem where some PCI-X systems reboots when running stress
       testing with BCM5701-based NICs. (CQ4714)

Version 3.1.0: 
    1. Enhanced so that memory footprint for UNDI driver is significantly 
       reduced.  (81K is down to 34K)
    2. Fixed a problem where 10/100 half duplex fails API test. (CQ3371)

Version 3.0.2: 
    1. Fixed a problem where BBS capability is not properly detected 
       if BIOS Information Type 0 is not the first entry of the SMBIOS
       database.

Version 3.0.1:
    1. Added BCM5704 support.
    2. Fixed a problem where PXE doesn't boot on the second port when
       the first port fails on BCM5704. (CQ3952)
    3. Fixed a problem where base code doesn't load correctly when
       BIOS doesn't support PMM (Post Memory Manager).
    4. Fixed a problem where PXE doesn't load correctly when NVRAM 
       is blank.

Version 2.2.8:
    1. Enhanced so that it can run concurrently with ASF.

Version 2.2.7:
    1. Fixed a problem where it fails to boot if on some PCI-X systems.

Version 2.2.6:
    1. Fixed a problem where it fails to operate with a certain model 
       of Cisco switches.  Whenever there is a link change, Cisco  
       switch doesn't forward packets after 5 to 10 seconds even spanning
       tree protocol is disabled.  It drops all packets during this 
       period of time.  Base-code is changed to retry more times.
       However, Cisco switch can be configure to work with previous
       versions of PXE.  The workaround is to configure Cisco port, where 
       PXE client is connected to, to portfast mode.  For instance,
  
             set spantree portfast 4/12 enable 

    2. Enhanced so that wait time for physical link stability is shortened.

Version 2.2.5:
    1. Optimized phase2 loader and minimized serial EEPROM corruption
       (This applies to NIC application ONLY).

Version 2.2.4:
    1. Added support for different LED configurations.

Version 2.2.3:
    1. Fixed a problem Dell PowerEdge7150 (Dual Processor IA-64) hangs up
       during EFI initialization if PXE-enabled NIC is installed.  This 
       problem is caused by a bug in EFI IA-64 core firmware where it 
       passes invalid PCI bus/device/function parameter to UNDI.  
       Workaround around is implemented by using initial parameter
       passed during UNDI init. (CQ3534)
    2. Fixed a problem where HPi2000 (IA-64 system) intermittently doesn't
       boot if PXE-enabled NIC is installed. 

Version 2.2.2:
    1. Fixed a problem where AutoNeg of Fiber NIC might not work on a 
       certain systems. (CQ3462)
    2. Rebooted system if RPL downloading fails. (CQ3606)

Version 2.2.1:
    1. Added software workaround for high bit error rate with 5703S fiber.

Version 2.2.0:
    1. Added Remote Program Load (RPL) support.  Since it's implemented
       based on IBM standard, it should interoperate with RPL service
       running on popular O/S such as Windows NT and IBM OS/2.  However,
       It will not work with Novell Netware yet since bootstrap (downloaded
       via RPL) requires ODI driver interface to download the rest of
       image with Netware protocol (Netware Core Protocol - NCP).
       This features should allow users to remote/boot/install DOS/Win95/
       Win98/OS2.
    2. Fixed PXE version banner. (CQ3435).

Version 2.1.8:
    1. Added support for Ethernet WireSpeed feature for BCM5702/
       BCM5703 NICs/LOMs.
    2. Added support for NICs with device ID 0x16a6 and 0x16a7.
    3. Fixed a problem where EFI UNDI core firmware detects
       UNDI16 with zero MAC address (CQ3337).

Version 2.1.7:
    1. Added support for BCM5702/BCM5703 (Rev. A0 silicon).

Version 2.1.6:
    1. Changed so that PXE cannot be loaded if ASF is enabled.
    2. Added scheme to prevent serial EEPROM corruption in BCM5702/BCM5703.

Version 2.1.5:
    1. Fixed a problem where DOSUNDI hangs up with BCM5703 NICs (CQ3113)
    2. Fixed a problem where PXE performance is slow on BCM5702/BCM5703 
       NICs (CQ3125).
    3. Fixed a problem where PXE is slow then BCM5701 NICs is on the 
       Dual AMD Tyan (CQ3165).
    4. Fixed a problem where UNDI performance is slow when it's in 
       some of OEM PCI-X systems. (CQ2800).

Version 2.1.4:
    1. Removed personized banner per OEM's request.
    2. Added features to allow user to configure delay time for banner,
       and boot strap type (BBS,INT18h, INT19h).

Version 2.1.3:
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE might lock up in some systems which implement
       "Fast Boot Initiative".  This only happens on NICs but not LOMs.  
       It's neccessary to have to use latest tools to upgrade PXE and latest 
       boot code firmware.

Version 2.1.2:
    1. Fixed a problem where UNDI speed is very slow when BCM5701 Fiber
       NICs/LOMs on a certain platform.

Version 2.1.0:
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE doesn't work with BCM5702/BCM5703 NICs.

Version 1.06:
    1. Added PCI-X workaround for B2 silicon.

Version 1.05:
    1. Changed to provide a scheme for users to boot via Int 18h, Int 19h, or 
       BBS.
       After the Broadcom banner is displayed, users have 4 seconds to select:
         * Ctrl F8    : Int 18h
         * Ctrl F9    : Int 19h
         * Ctrl F10   : BBS

   2. Changed to allow users to force PXE run at a certain speed.
     
Version 1.04:
    1. Changed due to changes in ASIC version format in B1 silicon.

Version 1.03:
    1. Eliminated unused code to save more memory so that it works fine with 
       IBM 300GL.
    2. Changed to accomodate different LED configurations based on System 
       Vendor ID.

Version 1.0:
    1. Fixed a problem where base-code cannot be unloaded.
    2. Fixed a problem where Linux Universal Driver crashes when it binds to
       UNDI.  UNDI now can run in protected mode.

Version 0.10:
    1. Fixed a problem where some system might lock up if BIOS calls
       UNDI API SHUTDOWN before call UNDI API INITIALIZE.    IBM 300PL
       PC is one of them.  

    2. Changed so that Broadcom copyright banner is displayed during
       ROM initialization.

    This version should fix SAR Prod0000344,and SAR Prod0000283

Version 0.9:
    1. Fixed a problem where PXE is not recognized is some systems where
       BIOS don't support BBS (BIOS Boot Specification).  Logic is 
       added to PXE initialization code to detect if BIOS support BBS or
       not.  If not, then use Interrupt 18h for boot.  This should 
       fix SAR Prod0000225,SAR Prod0000604, SAR Prod0000606.
 
Version 0.8:
    1. Fixed a problem where APITEST failed. (SAR Prod0000426)

    1. Added support for B0 Silicon.
    2. Fixed a problem where 10Mbps doesn't work.

Version 0.4:  
    1. Initial release.


Revision History of Base Code 
=============================
Intel developed base code and distributed it as a part of PXE SDK 
to the NIC hardware vendors who develop UNDI drivers for their 
NIC products.  During testing and development process, Broadcom has 
found various bugs and has provided appropriate fixes.  Details of
various fixes are listed as follows:

v1.0.9: 
       Base Code used IGADDR in the bootp field as default gateway
       IP address.  It should use Router DHCP option for default gateway
       IP address.  This causes TFTP packets routed to the wrong path.
       Updated base code to initialize default gateway IP address  
       from the Router DHCP option if it's present.
v1.0.8: 
      Modified the base code to respond to ARP requests when it's
      polling for keystrokes in the PXE menu.  

v1.0.7: 
      Enhanced the bootstrap menu processing logic in the base code to
      poll UNDI interface for Rx packets so that IPMI/ASF traffic is 
      not blocked. 

v1.0.6: 
      During BINL (Boot Information Negotiation Layer) phase, base code 
      checks to make sure Server IP address in the BINL response is the same as
      the Server IP address in DHCP phase.  If it's different, then it doesn't 
      accept the BINL response.  This can be different and valid in some 
      configurations. Changed the base code so that it doesn't have to validate 
      the Server IP address in BINL phase.

v1.0.5:
      Changed the DHCP logic in the base code so that it will only 
      wait for up to 4 seconds to send out DHCP requests after one
      or more DHCP offers are received.

v1.0.4:
      Changed the DHCP logic in the base code so that it will process
      Vendor Specific option regardless where Class Identifier in the 
      DHCP packet.

v1.0.3: 
      Added logic to handle IP reassembly when TFTP responses are 
      in multiple IP fragments and set IP reassembly timeout to 1 second.

v1.0.2:
      Changed the DHCP logic in the base code so that it only 
      processes Vendor Specific option when Class Identifier is present 
      and contains "PXEClient".

v1.0.1:
      Changed to abort network boot if UNDI driver return status code
      of PXENV_STATUS_UNDI_MEDIATEST_FAILED.

v1.0.0: 
    1. Changed to add Broadcom copyright.
    2. Changed revision number to standard version number format.
    3. Whenever the TFTP server doesn't response the first TFTP ack,
       the TFTP open code intends to send TFTP Read Request again 
       with different UDP source port number (incremented by 1).  
       There is a bug in the code where it doesn't reinitialize the 
       packet as TFTP Read Request packet.  Therefore, it sends out 
       the packet as TFTP ACK packet since the last packet being 
       sent was a TFTP ACK.

Build 082k
    1. TFTP service uses INT15h AH=87h (one of BIOS services) to copy
       a block of memory from conventional memory to extended memory.
       In some systems, this call intermittently fails the first time.  
       Changed the base code to issue second try if this call fails 
       the first time to work around these systems' issue.

Build 082j
    1. Fixed the basecode so that provided length field is used to 
       nullify the filename which is used for TFTP/MTFTP download.
       This causes PXE failing to boot with some PXE servers.
       This PXE server provides filename of the boot image in
       one of the DHCP option fields (OPTION 67) instead of filename 
       field in the BOOTP major section. There is a bug in the base 
       code where it doesn't use the provided length information for
       filename string.

Build 082i
    1. Reduced DHCP timeout of the last retry to 4s.  The new timeout
       is 4s,8s,16s,32s,4s.

Build 082h
    1. Fixed a problem in the base code where DHCP timeout doesn't <
       adhere to PXE spec.  The original timeouts are 2s,4s,8s,16s.
       The new timeouts are 4s,8s,16s,32s,32s.

Build 082g  : 
    1. Modified so that it can support native BOOTP request.  Some 
       BOOTP servers don't send BOOTP reply if it's not native 
       BOOTP request.

Build 082f  : 
    1. Fixed a problem where base code can drop packets if packets
       are received back-to-back.  Specifically, if two packets are 
       received back-to-back, base-code will drop the second packet. 
       In a MTFTP test scenario, unicast and multicast TFTP packets 
       are received back-to-back.  UNDI indicates both packets to base
       code receive logic, but it drops the MTFTP packet. 

Build 082e  : 
    1. Added Broadcom revision to base code so that Broadcom can keep
       track changes in the base code.

Build 082 (shipped via MBA v3.1.10 and newer) :
    1. Fixed a problem in the base code where UDP_READ API routine
       doesn't receive packets correctly if there is other UDP traffic
