ata_scsi_translate — Translate then issue SCSI command to ATA device


int ata_scsi_translate (struct ata_device * dev,
 struct scsi_cmnd * cmd,
 ata_xlat_func_t xlat_func);


struct ata_device * dev

ATA device to which the command is addressed

struct scsi_cmnd * cmd

SCSI command to execute

ata_xlat_func_t xlat_func

Actor which translates cmd to an ATA taskfile


Our ->queuecommand function has decided that the SCSI command issued can be directly translated into an ATA command, rather than handled internally.

This function sets up an ata_queued_cmd structure for the SCSI command, and sends that ata_queued_cmd to the hardware.

The xlat_func argument (actor) returns 0 if ready to execute ATA command, else 1 to finish translation. If 1 is returned then cmd->result (and possibly cmd->sense_buffer) are assumed to be set reflecting an error condition or clean (early) termination.

LOCKING: spin_lock_irqsave(host lock)


0 on success, SCSI_ML_QUEUE_DEVICE_BUSY if the command needs to be deferred.
