They're in the Release notes you can get from 3ware's download page.  Note 
that they have a firmware version that is *not* bundled in the 
'fw' version of the driver, and the release notes say that you need that 
version of the firmware (or newer) to fix the multiple unit cache problem 
(the performance killer).
