These SAS proposals are now on http://www.t10.org/new.htm for discussion
in tomorrow's SAS protocol conference call:
02-360r1 SAS spinup
This revision includes standardese, integrates with power conditions
(active/idle/standby modes available to all device types) as well as
start/stop modes (which are block device specific).
Mark Evans (Maxtor) is working on SBC-2/SPC-3 clarifications about
how start/stop functionality intersects with power conditions, e.g.
standby power condition ~ stopped (but slightly different);
active power condition = started,
02-397r0 SAS Protocol-Specific mode page
Makes appropriate DISCOVER and PHY CONTROL functionality available
to targets (e.g. enable/disable phy).
