> Thanks to everyone who's helped test some alpha builds of xhci, I think
> we have something that's getting pretty close to being a useful initial
> integration of USB 3 and xhci support.
> I'd like to thank Toomas Soome, Dan McDonald, and Adam Števko I have
> images for SmartOS, OmniOS, OI hipster, and OI/Loader for ready testing.
> While there are a few known issues with the current code, if you see
> panics or hangs of any kind, please reach out to me with more
> information and if at all possible, a crash dump. Please note, this is
> all *beta* software. While I don't expect folks to encounter problems,
> you certainly may.
> So far, we've tried to test as many of the major classes of devices as
> possible. Including audio, storage, serial, Ethernet, keyboard, mouse,
> hubs, etc. We've also had a lot of luck so far on the following
> chipsets: VMware Fusion controller, Fresco Logic FL1100EX, Intel 8
> Series/C220 series chipset, Sunrise Point-H USB 3.0 xHCI Controller, and
> Intel Celeron N2000 Series USB xHCI.
> If you do test it, and things are working, it'd help me if you could
> share the output of the following two commands for my notes:
> mdb -ke '::prtusb'
> prtconf -dD | grep -i xhci
> With that, here are links to builds and images:
> Toomas has put together his loader branch with the xhci changes. There
> are OI ISO/USB images here:
> Dan McDonald has put together OmniOS bloody repo available at:
> http://pkg.omniti.com/omnios/USB3/. For more information on how to use
> it, please reach out to OmniOS
> Adam Števko has put together an OI Hipster repository. It's available at
> http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster-xhci. For more information or
> questions on the repo, please reach out to the OI Developer list.
> SmartOS builds:
> SmartOS debug builds:
> Finally, if you're interested in review, we've started the process of
> our public review at Joyent. It's available at
> https://cr.joyent.us/#/c/872/. We will likely land this in
> illumos-joyent and get a little bit more soak time and then RTI it for
> Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who's helped test, given me
> advice, or helped me through while debugging nasty bugs.
