The Linux SCSI Target Wiki
As of March 19th, the TCM based Open-FCoE.org 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..!
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!
- ) Description
The tcm_fc fabric module is based on the open-fcoe.org 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.
- ) Control interface
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.
