When i installed twas driver on 6.2-STABLE it said
i presumed that it measn that twa is giant-lock free.
Now, after installing 7-CURRENT i see
Aug 15 17:00:02 omni3 kernel: 3ware device driver for 9000 series storage controllers, version: 3.70.03.007
Aug 15 17:00:02 omni3 kernel: twa0: <3ware 9000 series Storage Controller> port 0x3000-0x30ff mem
0x88000000-0x89ffffff,0x8a200000-0x8a200fff irq 16 at devic
Aug 15 17:00:02 omni3 kernel: twa0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
Aug 15 17:00:02 omni3 kernel: twa0: [ITHREAD]
So, it says GIANT-LOCKED and then ITHREAD.
Apparently, i have no real understaning what those words mean.
COuld anyone explain the meaning of
Giant-locked is self explanatory and.. bad.
