My plate is full

I've got a few things on my plate at the moment. Firstly and most importantly, we're in the process of getting our backport (for PSARC/2006/703 MPxIO extension for Serial Attached SCSI and PSARC/2007/046 stmsboot(1M) extension for mpt(7D)) approved. All the AIs from the CTeam review have been completed for the feature gate, so we're waiting on CTeam's deliberations.

Secondly, I've got general SAS stuff to address, which includes getting my head around how we get from realmode and grub up to the kernel. So far this bit has been really disgusting and is kinda doing my head in.

Then I've got two OpenSolaris sponsored items: DLG's mfi and JBK's drop-in replacement for a sparc libdisasm (ie, unencumbering it). I've also got my scsi inquiry util to get finalised and fasttracked, and then there's a fix for Silicon Image Sil311x cards which have raid firmware installed.

Finally... I promised Simon that I'd provide links to the OpenSolaris implementations of Sun's opened Hardware wiki.

All in all, a fairly interesting collection of things to be working on, and there's not a spare cycle to be had.
