No, what you see is what you get in this case...

These are production servers, so I can't really 'mess' around with
compiling source and loading drivers from outside the distribution's
packages (sles).  I might see if I can assimilate some server hardware
and run tests on that.  I have people screaming at me for more space,
some people want 10 to 20 TB of space, and if I can't get open-iscsi
to work for us I'll either have to buy iscsi HBAs, or switch to the
more expensive FC route I-:
