This is the first I hear of fnic2. My initial questions are: Why is a new driver necessary? Why can't the existing fnic driver be extended? And if it can't, what can be shared between the two drivers? A good place to have that discussion would be on linux-scsi... -- Martin K. Petersen Oracle Linux Engineering
