  Okay, will do.

  Heh.  When you say it's "not stable," do you mean that there's still
a lot of active development happening, or do you mean that the code
may still be somewhat unreliable?  Or both?  :-)

  Hm... so is each version of the userspace tools intended to work
only with the kernel modules included in the same tarball on
open-iscsi.org?  Or is it just that in this particular case, there are
necessary bug fixes in both the new userspace tools and the new kernel
  Sorry if I'm asking basic questions about the relationship between
the userspace tools, the modules in the open-iscsi.org tarballs, and
the modules in the stock kernels.  I'm still a little unclear on how
it all fits together, though.
  In any case, I'll try the new userspace tools with 2.6.25-rc2 over
the weekend and let you know.  If it seems to work out okay (and I
have a ton of time to kill :-), I'll also try the new kernel modules
on the 2.6.18 kernel that I was using previous to this whole endeavor.
