This section describes a device management enhancement in this release.
The ATA Pass Through commands in the Serial ATA (SATA) module are enhanced to send arbitrary ATA commands to the attached SATA devices.
When the physical device is a SATA drive, the SCSI commands must be translated to ATA commands. The ATA Pass Through feature allows an arbitrary ATA command to be sent to the drive by using the SCSI commands. This enhancement allows applications and kernel modules to send arbitrary ATA commands to the attached SATA devices.
For more information, see the sata(7D) and uscsi(7I) man pages.
