1. NAME

scsi_normalize_sense - normalize main elements from either fixed or descriptor sense data format into a common format.

int scsi_normalize_sense(const u8 *  sense_buffer , int  sb_len , struct scsi_sense_hdr *  sshdr );

3. ARGUMENTS

sense_buffer
    byte array containing sense data returned by device

sb_len
    number of valid bytes in sense_buffer

sshdr
    pointer to instance of structure that common elements are written to.
