$ROOT_2.8/kernel/drv/vxgms

Problem Description:

(1069983) Replaced the ddi interface calls in GAB_API_INIT with a
	  symbolic name lookup to obtain a pointer to the GAB
	  API.  This falls in line with other platform behavior.
	  Added gab as a depends_on[] entry.
(1090530) Fixed an issue in which the VRTSgms 5.0MP1RP1 patch
	  failed to apply for the JumpStart-supported version of
	  the 5.0 release.

(1090530) VRTSgms 5.0MP1RP1 patch failed to apply for Jumpstart
          Supported Version of 5.0 release.

Patch Installation Instructions:
--------------------------------

For Solaris 2.0-2.6 releases, refer to the Install.info file and/or
the README within the patch for instructions on using the generic
''installpatch'' and ''backoutpatch'' scripts provided with each patch.

For Solaris 7-9 releases, refer to the man pages for instructions
on using ''patchadd'' and ''patchrm'' scripts provided with Solaris.
Any other special or non-generic installation instructions should be
described below as special instructions.  The following example
installs a patch to a standalone machine:

       example# patchadd /var/spool/patch/104945-02

The following example removes a patch from a standalone system:

       example# patchrm 104945-02

For additional examples please see the appropriate man pages.

Special instructions:
---------------------
This special instruction is for customers who have one of the
following conditions:

- SFORAC nodes with "forceload vxgms" in /etc/system
- CFS only nodes with "exclude vxgms" in /etc/system

If you have SFORAC installed but have a node or nodes that do not run RAC,
just CFS, then the GMS hang issue can be avoided by not loading the vxgms
module (exclude vxgms). Once the patch is installed this workaround can be
removed by deleting the line in /etc/system.

If you have SFORAC installed any nodes that run Oracle RAC can attempt to
avoid the GMS hang issue by force loading the vxgms module at boot time
(forceload vxgms). Once the patch is installed this workaround can be
removed by deleting the line in /etc/system.
