As of March 19th, the TCM based target fabric module in lio-core-2.6.git/tcm_fc has been committed into lio-core-2.6.git/master as LIO v3.4.0-rc1..!

100% of logic for v3.x Target_Core_Mod/ConfigFS Persistent_Reservations and ALUA is now running in multi-fabric mode between and across LIO-Target TCM_Loop and OpenFCoE SCSI Ports..!

This would not have been possible without the tremendous contributions of tcm_fc by Joe Eykholt and his ongoing work of making libfc target capable. Thanks Joe!

The tcm_fc fabric module is based on the target code and has been modified to run using a modified upstream Linux libfc module.

This includes a patch series to reenable Point to Point module for libfc (which have been merged upstream), and a set of hooks into libfc to be able to hand off incoming FLOGI requests to FC based target modules.

The tcm_fc fabric module is using the configfs interface in /sys/kernel/config/target/fc. Note that there is NO strict userspace code requirement in order to get up and running.;a=tree;f=drivers/target/tcm_fc;hb=HEAD
