I, and I suppose a lot of other people, would like know how you look at the
HW support on the Fc side? I don´t know what you mean now, when you talk
about HW target support, if you talk iScsi HBA, TOE HBA, NIC, or Fc HBA, or
all of them. Since I´m very much on the Fc side, I´m especially interested
in your developement strategy for Fc. How is your priority list look like?

Yeah it is very unstable at the moment. We are in the middle if adding
HW target support so probably scst or IET alone if you just need iscsi
is better. We have also been trying to figure out a way to reuse some of
the block layer code for things like barriers/MSG_*, tags, requests and
queue limits etc and that is really a experiment at the moment.
