How to write a plugin for Pluggable fwflash(1m)

As I alluded to a few months back, I've been working on backporting Pluggable fwflash(1m) to Solaris 10. Part of the process for getting a backport integrated includes writing what we call a "TOI" - Transfer Of Information. Some people might use the term "technical deep dive".... but I'd look sideways at you if you said that's what I'd been delivering :-)

While I was in Beijing with the rest of our group last month, I delivered several TOIs, foremost of which was the one I'd developed on Pluggable fwflash(1m). The others were on Areca SAS/SATA RAID card driver, and on my stmsboot redesign.

I'm very pleased to be able to provide the Open version of the fwflash presentation via this blog.

I hope you'll find it useful - please let me know.
