		     Release Note for Q57DIAG Engineering Diagnostics.
Due to interrupt sharing problem  on some systems with older BIOS, interrupt test and all loopback test
will fail on some of these rare systems. If so, it is a bios problem and the way to get around this is to assign
the Device Under Test to another IRQ.

version 6.05
    1.  Enable swapXBAR option in SECFG when 5404 B0 is detected.
    2.  Added 5703B0 ASIC Rev ID 
    3.  Fixed the diags DOS command -firm multiple card failure.

version 6.04
    1.  Modified D4 test label.

version 6.03
    1.  Fixed the diags DOS command -firm 5704 NVRAM update failure.
    2.  Inserted test D4 for 1G Tx/Rx lines open/short testing.

version 6.02
    1.  Backed out D3 loopback test checking for opens and shorts.
        The feature is no longer supported by diagnostics.
    2.  Change copyright string from Broadcom to HP.

version 6.01
    1.  Fixed setorture command failure.
        Bug added in code since v5.03 where the firmware bootup handshaking
        is tested for twice, which causes the incorrect failure.
    2.  Bounds checking for udiag command line options added.
    3.  Added Support to 5705 A2/A3, 5901 A2/A3, 5705M A2/A3.
    4.  Added HP NC7761 Gigabit Server Adapter support.
    5.  Replaced "Compaq" with "HP" in labels.
    6.  Modified Phy Interrupt test.  Since the purpose of this test is to check if phy can update our interrupt
        status bit (to generate interrupt) and we do not want to use actually
        interrupt to test this feature we were polling the interrupt status. 
        Since some systems will randomly call our interrupt service routine and clears the
	interrupt status, caused our polling routine to fail to see the interrupt
	status. The workaround was not only polling for interrupt status in the register, 
        but also checks if actually interrupt service routine has cleared the status. 
	If the interrupt service routine clears the status, it will increment a counter to indicate that the status was cleared by
	interrupt service routine.
    7.  Removed "Disable Expansion Rom Test" from Expansion Rom test.
	Once the Expansion ROM is "disabled" on the system, when the diag is accessing to the Expansion ROM, 
	it in fact, is accessing to "non-existing" memory address.   Depending on the system design, the system reaction to the
	"invalid memory access" may be different, and it is very possible to hang the system.

version 6.00
    1.  Customer requested that DOS command line execution of the loopback
        test D3 allow selection of line speed. Line speeds for this test
        can be set via the command line option "-lbspd t/h/g", where
        t/h/g is ten/hundred/giga line speeds.
        To run ten and giga LB "b57diag -t abcd T D3 -lbspd tg"
    2.  A customer requested a DOS command line option to program the firmware
        on a device, only if the did, vid, sdid, & svid of the device matches
        the information in the firmware file.
        Use "b57udiag -firm abc.bin" to program all device on a system where
        the device did, vid, sdid, & svid matches the same information in
        the firmware file "abc.bin".
    3.  5704 support has been added to q57udiag.

version 5.18
    1.  Tx/Rx 32 bit packet counters are extended to 64 bits, to allow
        for longer test runs without a counter rollover.
    2.  -w and -b options take no effect in dmaw cmd in engineering mode.  These had been fixed.
    3.  HP NC7761 Gigabit Server Adapter PCI_ID has been added.
    4.  The 5705 would not catch a open on gigabit Tx/Rx lines during loopback.
        Tap2, mean square error, on the DSP is used to screen for opens.
    5.  Stopping "blast -t -r -n=0" via ESC would stop the Tx/Rx simultaneously.
        If packets are loopedback (LB) some packets would not be RXed due to the LB delay.
        Fixed by first stopping Tx, then waiting, then stopping Rx.

Version 1.14:
    1. Fixed PCI-X eeprom access bug.
    2. Invalidate the default xx-xx-xx-00-00-00 mac address. However, it allow user
       to enter mac address as xx-xx-xx-00-00-00. 

Version 1.13:
    1. Fixed Memory Allocation Problem for Dell 8450.
    2. Added PCI-X support
    3. Programmed MAC (in PCI-X mode) to not allow set the Relaxed Ordering Bit in 
       the Requestor Attributes of transactions it initiates that do not require 
       strong write ordering.

Version 1.12:
    The new options -n, -m, and -f now requires -e option to be activated

    1. New Option -n 
	With this option, the program will run in manufacturing loop. 
	It supports power on/off of UUT. This will ignore the option -I, 
	the iteration option.
    2. New Option -m
	Prompt user for the MAC address. With this option, user must enter/scan
	the mac address before testing. The program also checks for the file
	"mac_pref.txt" This is a text file should contain six digits of ASCII 
	MAC three-byte-prefix address. Any of the following format is supported:
	    00 04 67
	If this file exists, user has option to enter/scan 7 digit hex number. 
	The first digit will be ignored and the last 6 digits will be used for 
	the lower part of MAC address. Combine with the prefix, it creates 6 
	byte (12 digit) hex number. 
	If this file does not exist, the whole 12 digit number must be entered
	for the MAC address. When entering MAC address, a space character is 
	allow between each byte. For example, any of the following is valid.
	00 04 67 01 02 03
	1010203           (currently, the scanner uses this format)
    3. New Option -f
	Program "eeprom.bin" into EEPROM before testing. The file "eeprom.bin" 
	must be there or the program will not run with this option. 
	The -m and -f combination will create the following behavior:
	a) -f and -m: 
	Program will not validate the eeprom content and go ahead to prompt 
	user for the MAC address. It programs MAC address and EEPROM content 
	and then checks the validity of eeprom content at the end of 

	Loading EEPROM content from eeprom.bin: passed   -- enter MAC address after pass here
	Programming EEPROM from eeprom.bin....: passed              
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	b) -f only
	Program will check the validity of eeprom. If it is not valid, 
	it will act as a), -f -m option. If it is good, it saves the MAC 
	address from eeprom, program new eeprom.bin content into EEPROM 
	and then restores the original MAC address. It checks the validity 
	of eeprom content once more at the end of programming. 

	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	Loading EEPROM content from eeprom.bin: passed
	Programming EEPROM from eeprom.bin....: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: invalid
	Loading EEPROM content from eeprom.bin: passed         -- enter MAC address after pass here
	Programming EEPROM from eeprom.bin....: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	c) -m only 
	Program will check the validity of eeprom. If it is not valid, 
	it will act as a), -f -m option. If it is good, the program will 
	prompt the user for a new MAC address and program the MAC address 
	only. It checks the validity of eeprom content once more at the 
	end of programming. 
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed        -- enter MAC address after pass here
	Programming MAC address...............: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: invalid
	Loading EEPROM content from eeprom.bin: passed         -- enter MAC address after pass here
	Programming EEPROM from eeprom.bin....: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	d) no -m and -f options
	Program will check the validity of eeprom. If it is not valid, 
	it will act as a), -f -m option. If it is good, it proceed to 
	normal diagnostics.
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: invalid
	Loading EEPROM content from eeprom.bin: passed         -- enter MAC address after pass here
	Programming EEPROM from eeprom.bin....: passed
	Checking EEPROM content...............: passed

    4. Fixed -x -w option checksum false error report bug


Version 1.11:
    1. Added features to secfg command to allow users to program VPD-R and 
       VPD-W information.
    2. Removed all debugging information to reduce file size.
    3. Manufacture test includes EEPROM content testing. If manufacture checkusm
       is bad, it prompts user to enter MAC address. If the checksum it good, it 
       will save the mac address before programming eeprom.bin if user choose to
       do so. 
    4. Changed Internal MAC loopback test from 100 to 200 packets. 
       Changed Phy loopback test from 100 to 2000 packets.
       Changed RJ45 loopback test from 100 to 2000 packets.
    5. Removed pattern and altenate pattern test from memory test to increase speed.
    6. Removed VPD test to increase speed. Since both eeprom test and vpd test
       exercise hardware eeprom. There is no needs for extensive test for both.

Version 1.10:
    1. Removed bit 13 register 11 read only bit test for MII test
       The MDI Crossover state bit changes internally when there is no cable
       connected. It is not reliable to be tested as read only bit and it is not
       an error. 

    2. Suppressed the error dialog when run without -p option

Version 1.09:
    1. Moved over bcmediag.exe version 1.24 - 1.30 changes.
      bcmediag.exe Version 1.30:
	a. Added bustest to test out PCI bus in the worst case scenarios.  The goal is
	   to have every data/control lines toggled.
	   Usage : bustest -a=address -n=iteration -l=min_len -h=max_len
		   -i=transaction -s=start_case -e=end_case
		   -a : NIC address to DMA data to.
		   -l : Minimum length (default = 256).
		   -h : Maximum length (default = 1024).
		   -n : iteration (default = 1)
		   -i : Number of transactions per pattern (default = 10)
		   -s : Start of test case (default = 0)
		   -e : End of test case (default = 259)

	  There are total 260 test cases (258 unique tests cases) which 
	  are described as follows:

	     If you run bustest command without any parameters, it will perform 
	     DMA testing on all 260 patterns with 10 iterations per pattern and
	     different data length in each iteration.  First eight bytes of data
	     are used to store the following info for debug:

	     byte 0-4 : length
	     byte 5-6 : iteration#
	     byte 6-7 : test case#

	b. Added PCI-X support and work-around for B1 silicon.  This version
	   diagnostics detects if the NIC is in PCI-X slot.  If yes, work-around
	   is implemented.  However, user still can overwrite this by issuing 
	   debug -c=5 to toggle PCI-X work-around before loading driver.

      bcmediag.exe Version 1.28:
	a. Made minor changes to support B1 silicon due to changes in ASIC revision

      bcmediag.exe 1.27:
	a. Added new commands to utilize BCM5500 built-in BERT features. Three 
	   new commands are added:
	    * lbertram: load BERT pattern into BERT TX&RX RAM, and enable BERT.
	    * dbertram: Dump BERT TX& RX RAM.
	    * bertstats: Display BERT statistics.

      bcmediag.exe Version 1.26
	a. Changed initialization of BCM5500.

      bcmediag.exe version 1.25
	a. Added support for Serdes PHY (BCM5500) and TBI interface.
	b. Added code to allow transmit jumbo frames up to 9022 bytes/packet
	   with txpkt command. (Note that you have to delete diagcfg.bin
	   before run bcmediag if you want to transmit jumbo frames over
	c. Added PCI-X support and work-around for B0 silicon.  This version
	   diagnostics detects if the NIC is in PCI-X slot.  If yes, work-around
	   is implemented.  However, user still can overwrite this by issuing 
	   debug -c=5 to toggle PCI-X work-around before loading driver.

      bcmediag.exe version 1.24:
	a. Enhanced txpkt/txcfg command to allow users to:
	   * Transmit random IP headers including IP options.
	   * Transmit random TCP headers including TCP options.
	   * Transmit random data payload.
	b. Added code to check IP/TCP/UDP checksums of incoming packets.

    2. Changed command user interface routines. This changes some of command syntax
    3. Fixed WOL spelling
    4. Change command help output.
    5. Added -p option to print on Error
    6. Display error on Red dialog with option to continue or print

Version 1.08:
    1. Put delay in test C3 to avoid low priority DMA test error
    2. Replaced original nictest with manufacturing tests
    3. Fixed domument error code error, error code number 28 and greater was
       shifted by 1. 
    4. Added error code 39,40,41,42
    5. Changed test B5. External RAM test to detect the existance of external 
       RAM first for testing

Version 1.07:
    1. Changed ESC to CTL-C as break key
    2. Changed -t and -T option to allow multiple group specification in one option
    3. Changed test D3 to be disabled by default
    4. Added "Unit Under Test: NIC" line at error output
    5. Unload all drivers upon exit

Version 1.06:
    Added -I option for iteration

Version 1.05:
    1. Rewrote all tests to comply to OEM's manufacture error message requirement
	2. Added -t to disable tests and -T to enable tests
		 format: -t <gnnn> where g is the group letter can be A,B,C, or D
						 n is the subtest number it should be '1' to '9'

	     example: -t A345 -t C13 -T b12   this will disable test A3,A4,A5,C1,C3 
							  and enable test B1,B2.

Version 1.04:
    1. Added -m option to disable RJ45Loopback Test

Version 1.03:
    1. Fixed multiple card interrupt problem. 
	   Original call had only one variable to save original interrupt
	   vector. If multiple cards use different interrupts, some origianal 
	   interrupt vector get lost. This will cause problem after exiting program.
	   Code is changed to support shared interrupt as well.

    2. Comment out some unreachable code in order to reduce code size.

Version 1.02:
    1. Added changes due to changes in boot code firmware 0.6.  Before issuing
       CHIP reset (or GRC reset), it writes a siginature to SRAM so that 
       firmware wouldn't perform code boot initialization such as PHY
       H/W reset, PXE loading, etc...

    2. Added new command to upgrade boot code firmware without corrupting 
       manufacturing information.  
	   upgfrm -b -p -f=<filename>
	       -b: upgrade boot code. 
	       -p: upgrade PXE.
	       -f: input filename.

    3. Changed command line option -m to -e to run engineering mode

    4. Added command line -i for force_program_device_id option
	   restored option -a for setting base memory address

	5. Added 5701 support

    6. Added multiple card support

	This version change is the same as bcmediag.exe v1.20 changes to v1.23.

Version 1.01:
    1. Fixed and enabled RJ45 loopback test
    The test requires to reset the system each time
    replace the adapter.

Version 1.00:
    1. Fixed Phy Loopback test
	2. Fixed ASIC version number display
	3. Disabled RJ45 loopback test

The program disables PXE and WOL by default.
To enable PXE: type q57diag -x
To enable WOL: type q57diag -w
