Hi Paul,

I will make changes to comply with 1.0c for the Q5 release. In addition, I had made some changes to fix INTx and Power Management related issues, which will be included in the release.

Subject: [nvmewin] Q4 release and contributions


I've got a request for the community... thus far Intel has been making most of the contributions since we went open source and I'd like to encourage everyone to push your changes back to the base so we realize the benefits of being open source.  I've got another patch that I'll be submitting (mentioned before) with some bug fixes plus I added support for DB strides.

I'm hoping someone will sign up for the following 2 feature investigations/additions.  One is changes for storport in Win8, many of the items won't be needed right away but I'd like someone to sign up to investigate and implement the things that make sense for the open source driver (setting a good example for optimizations in Win8).

Secondly is support for 1.0c, I've listed the doc deltas and am looking for an owner to further investigate each item and implement the changes.

Alex/Rick/Arpit... anyone who has not contributed?  Can you look at picking these things up?  Timeframe is to have them in and tested before the end of this quarter so we're ready for our Q5 release.
