       or 3ware CLI is used to read SMART data.

73
74
  [CF] Windows: Print warning if admin rights are missing.

  [DG] Accept half healthy (and half unhealthy) indication from the
       SMART RETURN STATUS. This makes allowance for SAT implementations
       (e.g. via USB) that truncate the SCSI sense buffer to 18 bytes.

  [CF] Add new object oriented interface to access ATA and SCSI devices.
       smartctl and smartd are modified to use the new classes in
       'dev_interface.{h,cpp}'. The template class in 'dev_tunnelled.h'
       is used in 'scsiata.cpp'. The code in 'dev_ata_cmd_set.{h,cpp}'
       supports migration from old function 'ata_command_interface()'.
       All existing 'os_*.cpp' modules should still work without any changes.
       The required adapter classes from 'dev_legacy.cpp' are automatically
       added by configure if necessary.

904

  [BA] Updated smartd and smartctl and smartd.conf man-page documentation
       to reflect support for Areca SATA RAID controller cards.

       instance).  Thanks to Curtis Stevens of WDC for clarification.
