sys-block/tw_cli: special version for >=3.8 kernel
TL;DR: if you run 3ware cards on a 3.8 or newer kernel, you need to upgrade the utility to correctly write card variables, as the old version will sometimes segfault. Tested on hardware models: 9750-4i, 9650SE-8LPML, 9690SA. Per email: > I've noticed recently that sys-block/tw_cli will segfault on modern > systems when setting variables on a card (at least on a 9750-4i). > ... > when you go to run a battery capacity test, it'll complete the capacity > test command, but segfault before it can update the timestamp on the > card to record the last capacity test date. That causes the date to > become "01-Jan-1970", and then dmesg will get flooded with "Battery > capacity test overdue" messages. That's what prompted me to open a case > with Broadcom, and then try to find some kind of workaround. Reported-by: Joshua Kinard <> Signed-off-by: Robin H.
