Did you get some drivers and userspace tools from Dell? Were the tools 
open-iscsi based?

bnx2i is not in the upstream kernel so the support in the distro tools 
and tools may not be complete. bnx2i is changing its 
driver and firmware so the tools support is on hold until broadcom is 
done with those changes.
