chSCSI media-changer (juke box) driver

ch? at scsibus?

The ch driver provides support for SCSI juke boxes. It allows many slots of media to be multiplexed between a number of drives.

A SCSI adapter and a logical scsibus must also be separately configured into the system before a SCSI changer can be configured.

As the SCSI adapter is probed during boot, the SCSI bus is scanned for devices. Any devices found which answer as "Changer" type devices will be “attached” to the ch driver. The first device found will be attached as and the next , etc. It is also possible to specify what ch unit a device should come on-line as; refer to scsi(4) for details on kernel configuration.
