ATA_SCSI_TRANSLATE(9)					  libata SCSI translation/emulat				     ATA_SCSI_TRANSLATE(9)

NAME
ata_scsi_translate - Translate then issue SCSI command to ATA device SYNOPSIS
int ata_scsi_translate(struct ata_device * dev, struct scsi_cmnd * cmd, void (*done) (struct scsi_cmnd *), ata_xlat_func_t xlat_func); ARGUMENTS
dev ATA device to which the command is addressed cmd SCSI command to execute done SCSI command completion function xlat_func Actor which translates cmd to an ATA taskfile DESCRIPTION
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) RETURNS
0 on success, SCSI_ML_QUEUE_DEVICE_BUSY if the command needs to be deferred. AUTHOR
