LSI Logic Windows XP Signed Driver for MegaRAID Controllers

Release date			:       09/02/2004
Windows XP Name			:	MRaid35x.sys
New Version #			:	6.43.2 

Summary of recent changes:
1. Added support for additional controllers in inf files.
2. During heavy I/O in the cluster environment, the driver used to stall the cpu for 3  min in a
   tight loop when it received the reset command from the OS.  Due to this system used to freeze 
   and cluster failover did not happen. This has been fixed.
3. If a logical drive is failed, driver did not expose it to the OS and this results in a mismatch 
   in the logical drive mapping between OS and RAID Management utilities. This driver will expose the 
   failed logical drive to the OS but complete the failed IO request to with proper status information.  
   This will fix the mismatch issue.
4. If the Adapter is set to DEAD, all the IOCTLs send to the driver would be returned with a special 
   signature 0xEE to identify that the adapter is DEAD and not responding.
5. The TimeOut Value in the Registry entry under Disk.sys has been increased to 60 secs from 40 secs 
   to prevent Event ID 9.
