More improvements on Sandforce-based disks.

I've seen the Sandforce based disks are improved according to 5.40 change-log. Compiled the latest smartmontools from SVN (2011-03-29) but there are still some Unknowns in some Attribute fields.

Viking Modular has a nice Datasheet which covers these values:
freely available from Producs page. These should be common to all Sandforce-based disks.

All attributes listed in the datasheet should be supported since r3167.

If this does not work for your disk please attach a sample smartctl output. Likely the IDENTIFY strings of many SandForce based devices are still not included (The datasheet does not list the IDENTIFY strings of the Viking devices).

The datasheet is very useful though. It provides detailed comments about the meaning attributes and the calculation of normalized values. Thanks!
