		     Release Note for B44DIAG Engineering Diagnostics.
		    ==================================================
Version 1.26
    1.  First 40 bytes of the Srom image will be copy to Chip srom shadow area when program srom
    2.  User will no longer need to reboot to pass all tests.
Version 1.25
    1.  Added -H option to enable host loop back test with less ipg.  With -H option, on screen counters will be updated.  Only software counters will.  User can use "qstat" or "nicstat" cmd to read counters.
        In case of using SmartBit as Data Source, 14 usec IPG is reconmanded for random packet size.  
	In case of using 5411 as Data Source,  50 bytes IPG is reconmanded for 250 bytes packets and incremental packet size from 42 to 1502 bytes.  (5411 has 16 bytes overhead).
        
Version 1.24
    1.  Software will return error level 254 instead of 256 when there is no card found.
    2.  Modify to display 64bit counters.
Version 1.23
    1.  After SROM being programmed, either use -f option or seprg cmd, Mac address will remain unchange.

Version 1.22
    1.  Rerelease of V1.21
Version 1.21
    1.  Warning message will be display after SROM being programmed with -f option. User need to power cycle system to for loading new srom configuration.
        Software will disable all the test and exit to DOS.
    2.  Same warning message will be display after srom being programmed with seprg cmd.
Version 1.20
    1.  Hard code PCIBAR0WINDOW to 0x18000000 to avoid problem with unprogramed SROM.
Version 1.19
    1.  Release to DVT only.
    2.  Fixed interrupt capture in blast cmd.
Version 1.18
    1.  "sedump" has been removed.
    2.  Fixed eeprom.bit size to 128 byte instead of 256 byte.

Version 1.17
    1.  TX and RX buffer memory is allocated only once during software initialization.
    2.  TX and RX buffer memory is deallocated only before software exit.
    3.  Fixed bug in all loopback tests and blast -t.  The content of the packet is corrupted.
        Instead of selected pattern being sent out, all zeros pattern is acctrually being sent out.
        This bug is found in V1.15 and V1.16.
    
Version 1.16
    1.  Fixed bug in after sromutil program MAC address then exit, system will give out error message.
    
Version 1.15
    1.  Enhance "blast -h", "blast -t" and "blast -r" cmds.
    2.  Added "blast -t -r" cmds
    3.  Check out com port controls.
    4.  Added "loadd" cmd to set chip to a working state.
    5.  Added "qstat" cmd to dump a subset of counters.
    6.  Added tx packets drop counter.
    7.  Added "-lbm", -lbp, -lph, -lbt command line options to specify number of packets in loopback tests.

Version 1.14
    1.  'blast' cmd will no longer reset the chip, user need to use 'reset' cmd to reset chip.
    2.  'blast' cmd and 'lbtest' support transmitting packets with random data.  It is not the real random packet.  
         What it does is transmit the same packet with random data many times.
    3.   Source code has been cleaned up.
Version 1.13
    1.  Added vender id and device id labels in "sromutil -d".
    2.  Fixed Phy loopback CRC bug.

Version 1.12
    1.  In sromutil cmd, -m option will no longer take device ID as input.  User should not change device ID.
    2.  EEPROM program from bin file.
    3.  User will be able to program the srom and Mac address from the command
	line.
	example:
		>b44diag -e b44kia -c 0 -f eeprom.bin -fmac macaddr.txt -b 3 -T abc

		-e: enter engineering mode.
		-c: card select
		-f: program srom with eeprom.bin. Basic information will be loaded to the srom. Error if file name missing.
		-fmac: program MAC address from Mac address file. Only Mac address will be updated.  Error if file name missing.
		-b: enable 64KB Boot Rom. 0 = disable; 1 = 16KB, 2 = 32KB, 3 = 64KB, 4 = 128KB.  Boot Rom status will remain unchanged if -b option is not entered.
		-T: enable Test Group A, B and C.

Mac address programming option:
In stead of entering -fmac option, Mac address in the srom can also be
programmed by entering either -m and -mac options.
By entering -m option, user will be asked to enter Mac address.  In order to
use -mac option, user need to provide the Mac address after entering -mac
option.
Example: b44diag -e b44kia -c 0 -f eeprom.bin -mac 001018112240 -b 3 -T abc
e.g.
Version 1.11
    1. -b option in sromutil cmd no longer need to be used along wiht -m option.  -b option values had also been changed.  
	Before:
	0=16KB, 1=32KB, 2=64KB, 3=128KB
	After: 	
	0=Disable, 1=16KB, 2=32KB, 3=64KB, 4=128KB
    2. Fixed a bug in blast -t. Mac duplex mode will be set according to Phy duplex mode state.
    3. Fixed a bug in loopback test.  Software counters will be updated before on-chip counters overflow. 
    4. In loopback test, packet counters had been replace to a 32 bit counter.
