|Subject:||iscsi update for 2.6.27|
|Date:||Wed, 21 May 2008 15:53:55 -0500|
These patches were made over scsi-rc-fixes but are for 2.6.27. There are features and cleanups so this should not go into 2.6.26. I could not make them over scsi-misc because scsi-rc-fixes (and linus's tree) has some bug fixes that went into 2.6.26-rc3 and scsi-misc is based on a older 2.6.26.rc. These patches do a lot of cleanup in prepartion for braodcom, but this batch of patches are good for iscsi_tcp and iser so I sending them now. They include patches to do the following: - fix the dma_mask for iser (bnx2i would have had a similar problem) - modify libiscsi so you do not have to use a workqueue to send IO (offload cards can send from queuecommand context), - merges a lot of duplicated code and structs. This also includes from cleanup patches from Harvey Harrison. It does include the patch from Boaz since I goofed and forgot that we were going to cleanup the iscsi_ecdb_ahdr 260 hardcoding usage and Boaz and James are discussing where to define that. That can go in later when Boaz is ready and those issues are resolved. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-scsi" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
