ATA_STD_BIOS_PARAM(9) libata SCSI translation/emulat ATA_STD_BIOS_PARAM(9)NAMEata_std_bios_param - generic bios head/sector/cylinder calculator used
int ata_std_bios_param(struct scsi_device * sdev,
struct block_device * bdev, sector_t capacity,
SCSI device for which BIOS geometry is to be determined
block device associated with sdev
capacity of SCSI device
location to which geometry will be output
Generic bios head/sector/cylinder calculator used by sd. Most BIOSes
nowadays expect a XXX/255/16 (CHS) mapping. Some situations may arise
where the disk is not bootable if this is not used.
Defined by the SCSI layer. We don't really care.
