Actually, looking at it again, I'm wavering.
That BFA driver isn't a "driver". It's a huge subsystem of it's own. It's
almost 50 _thousand_ lines of code for just a single "driver", and for
rare hardware at that.
Quite frankly, the "bang per line" is almost zero.
What the ^&@* is wrong with "enterprise SCSI" people? The amount of crazy
So I've pulled it, but I'm still considering just unpulling it. That
driver is _not_ "just a driver". It's something more. Something dank and
smelly, that has grown in dark and forbidding places.
The whole crazy "high end SCSI" industry needs a f*cking exorcism.
Even if I don't unpull, I don't _ever_ want to see a driver like this
outside the merge window. And dammit, James, you should have realized
