Mailbox Loopback Test 

Enable|Disable the mailbox loopback command. This test writes data patterns into the mailboxes and then reads them 

back from the output mailboxes and verifies the data is correct. 

Firmware Revision Check 

Enable|Disable the firmware revision check command. This test extracts the firmware revision from the RISC firmware code and verifies against expected values. 

Firmware Checksum Test 

Enable|Disable the firmware checksum command. 

This command instructs the interface's RISC processor to calculate the checksum on the current microcode and then compare it against the checksum that was loaded in with the microcode. 

Check Module Revisions 

Enable|Disable the firmware checksum command. This command returns the revision level of several sub-modules on the interface card. Although this test is executed when enabled, the module revision levels are only printed out in VERBOSE mode.
