HY(4)		       BSD/vax Kernel Interfaces Manual			 HY(4)

     hy — Network Systems Hyperchannel interface

     device hy0 at uba0 csr 0172410 vector hyint

     The hy interface provides access to a Network Systems Corporation Hyper‐
     channel Adapter.

     The network to which the interface is attached is specified at boot time
     with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2).  The host's address is discovered by read‐
     ing the adapter status register.  The interface will not transmit or
     receive packets until the network number is known.

     hy%d: unit number 0x%x port %d type %x microcode level 0x%x.  Identifies
     the device during autoconfiguration.

     hy%d: can't handle af%d.  The interface was handed a message with
     addresses formatted in an unsuitable address family; the packet was

     hy%d: can't initialize.  The interface was unable to allocate UNIBUS
     resources. This is usually due to having too many network devices on an
     11/750 where there are only 3 buffered data paths.

     hy%d: NEX - Non Existent Memory.  Non existent memory error returned from

     hy%d: BAR overflow.  Bus address register overflow error returned from

     hy%d: Power Off bit set, trying to reset.	Adapter has lost power, driver
     will reset the bit and see if power is still out in the adapter.

     hy%d: Power Off Error, network shutdown.  Power was really off in the
     adapter, network connections are dropped.	Software does not shut down
     the network unless power has been off for a while.

     hy%d: RECVD MP > MPSIZE (%d).  A message proper was received that is too
     big.  Probable a driver bug.  Shouldn't happen.

     hy%d: xmit error - len > hy_olen [%d > %d].  Probable driver error.
     Shouldn't happen.

     hy%d: DRIVER BUG - INVALID STATE %d.  The driver state machine reached a
     non-existent state.  Definite driver bug.

     hy%d: watchdog timer expired.  A command in the adapter has taken too
     long to complete.	Driver will abort and retry the command.

     hy%d: adapter power restored.  Software was able to reset the power off
     bit, indicating that the power has been restored.

     netintro(4), inet(4)

     The hy interface appeared in 4.2BSD.

     If the adapter does not respond to the status command issued during auto‐
     configure, the adapter is assumed down.  A reboot is required to recog‐
     nize it.

     The adapter power fail interrupt seems to occur sporadically when power
     has, in fact, not failed.	The driver will believe that power has failed
     only if it can not reset the power fail latch after a “reasonable” time
     interval.	These seem to appear about 2-4 times a day on some machines.
     There seems to be no correlation with adapter rev level, number of ports
     used etc. and whether a machine will get these “bogus powerfails”.	 They
     don't seem to cause any real problems so they have been ignored.
