Description of problem:
We would like to update the lpfc driver in RHEL 4 to revision 126.96.36.199.
Note: At present our driver is at 188.8.131.52. We have identified
several small bugs which will require a 184.108.40.206 rev. The code
freeze for the 220.127.116.11 rev is 2/8.
Below, I have attached the description of the changes between the
current 18.104.22.168 driver and the 22.214.171.124 driver. A full diff
can be provided.
