ledmon and ledctl are userspace tools designed to control storage
enclosure LEDs. The user must have root privileges to use these tools.
These tools use the SGPIO and SES-2 protocols to monitor and control LEDs.
They been verified to work with Intel(R) storage controllers (i.e. the
Intel(R) AHCI controller) and have not been tested with storage controllers of
other vendors (especially SAS/SCSI controllers).
For backplane enclosures attached to ISCI controllers, support is limited to
Intel(R) Intelligent Backplanes.

* New upstream release:
* restart of the ledmon's internal state when an unrecoverable error occurs
(e.g. lack of disk's location)
* logging level for not supported patterns changed from 'warning' to 'debug'
* more detailed information about device change (name changed, missing)
* added extra checks against device presence in sysfs (device may disappear
at anytime: during rescan, initialization, sending command)
* pattern "locate_off" fixed
* SES-2 support for enclosures
* New patterns (SES-2) in ledctl for drives in enclosures
* Improved LED blinking and slot locations for AHCI and SCSI DA
* ledctl and ledmon were converted to the raw bitstream (TX_GP) interface,
so they do not need additional SGPIO support in the kernel now
(by Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>)
* the way ledctl works has been changed: so far turning on some LEDs
did not change the state of all other LEDs of all controllers,
now turning on some LEDs turns off all other LEDs of all controllers
* ledctl's manual was corrected and updated
