Hi Li,

Isn't it possible to get rid of __brcm_iscsiuio__ daemon and move the 
related userspace UIO implementation into vendor provided library and do 
the needed modification into __iscsid__, so that depending upon 
configuration __iscsid__ would utilize the vendor provided hooks inside 
the vendor library to send/recv events. IMHO it would be neat approach.

To provide configurable option to vendor library we could use 
__iface/nic0__ interface.


iface.nic_handler = "";
iface.rx_poll_usec = "10";
iface.nic_dev = "/dev/uio0"
