Re: [PATCH] mpt3sas: Remove logging BIOS version in the kernel log

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The only proper way to print UEFI Boot Services Driver version and
legacy x86 OpROM version is to upload those image headers from flash
and retrieve the version, various generation of the controllers have
various type of image headers hence a good amount of code needs to be
added to the driver to display them properly and associated feature
maintenance, so we thought it is better to push that to applications
space, if you think the added code is worth the value it provides, we
can add it in the future, we would prefer to remove the current way of
showing a version in that message.
