A load off my mind

This morning I awoke and saw that the gatekeepers had given me the ok to putback our wad of changes to the Solaris 10 patch and feature gates. The gates opened less than a day ago, US/Pacific time, so I'm very happy that we were amongst the first to get in.

So after a few hours on the phone with the rest of our team, making absolutely darned sure that we had everything correct and doing a last-minute merge+test with the feature gate, I putback. I don't think I've been this nervous since the day I got married!

We expect to see patches for this backport in about a month - a coupla weeks after the close of the patch gate for this build. Not sure what the patch IDs will be, when I find out I'll mention them here.

The PSARC fasttracks we integrated are

PSARC 2006/703 MPxIO extension for Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) on mpt(7D)
PSARC 2007/046 stmsboot(1M) extension for mpt(7D)

And the primary bugids are

6443044 add mpxio support to SAS mpt driver
6502231 stmsboot needs to support SAS devices
6544226 mpt needs mdb module

(bugs.opensolaris.org won't show the updates until tomorrow).

Our little project team is very happy and despite the fact that we're in Beijing, Brisbane and Melbourne I think we might all go off to a pub to celebrate.
