Description Tom Coughlan 2005-11-23 10:51:21 EST
We have a last minute U7 request from Emulex to add new hardware to the lpfc
driver. The proposed patch:

+       * Changed version to 7.3.3
+       * Fix names reported in the system log and in the proc files 
+       * Adding LP11000S and LPE11000S PCI IDs

The patch is low-risk, so I think it is worthwhile to get the hardware support. 

I have built and tested it on x86 with the older LP8000 and LP1050 boards.

The Emulex driver update has just been committed to the RHEL3 U7
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-37.12.EL).
