unsigned char* scsi_bios_ptable ( struct block_device dev)

scsi_bios_ptable - Read PC partition table out of first sector of device. : from this device

Description: Reads the first sector from the device and returns %0x42 bytes starting at offset %0x1be. Returns: partition table in kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL) memory, or NULL on error.

int scsi_partsize ( unsigned char buf,
unsigned long  capacity,
unsigned int cyls,
unsigned int hds,
unsigned int secs 

scsi_partsize - Parse cylinders/heads/sectors from PC partition table : partition table, see scsi_bios_ptable() : size of the disk in sectors : put cylinders here : put heads here : put sectors here

Description: determine the BIOS mapping/geometry used to create the partition table, storing the results in *cyls, *hds, and *secs

Returns: -1 on failure, 0 on success.

int scsicam_bios_param ( struct block_device bdev,
sector_t  capacity,
int ip 

scsicam_bios_param - Determine geometry of a disk in cylinders/heads/sectors. : which device : size of the disk in sectors : return value: ip[0]=heads, ip[1]=sectors, ip[2]=cylinders

Description : determine the BIOS mapping/geometry used for a drive in a SCSI-CAM system, storing the results in ip as required by the HDIO_GETGEO ioctl().

Returns : -1 on failure, 0 on success.
