Description Andrius Benokraitis 2008-08-26 12:09:57 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #442758 +++

The fibre channel adapters can support multiple request and response queues. These queues can be used to provide QOS, individual queues for virtual ports (NPIV) and VSAN's

This feature is is part of support for end-to-end architecture for larger vendors.

Deferring to RHEL 5.4 (and RHEL 6.0) perQLogic's request.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2008-10-01 13:28:23 EDT
Need some more information here - is this code upstream yet? If not, when is it planned?
Comment 2 Marcus Barrow 2008-10-03 16:47:25 EDT

This code is not yet upstream. It is under test now. We expect it to be submitted upstream for the .28 maybe or the .29 kernel certainly, depending on how long the testing takes.

It will not be submitted for the RHEL 5 series.
Comment 3 Tom Coughlan 2009-09-24 07:33:08 EDT
It this not in 2.6.31, and in Fedora 12, it is late for RHEL 6.
Comment 4 Chris Ward 2009-11-25 05:06:40 EST

We need to confirm that there is third-party commitment to 
test for the resolution of this request during the RHEL 6.0 
Beta Test Phase before we can approve it for acceptance 
into the release.

In order to avoid any unnecessary delays, please post a 
confirmation as soon as possible, including the contact 
information for testing engineers.

Any additional information about alternative testing variations we 
could use to reproduce this issue in-house would be appreciated.

Initial Multi-queue support code was added in 2.6.29:

  commit 73208dfd7ab19f379d73e8a0fbf30f92c203e5e8

   [SCSI] qla2xxx: add support for multi-queue adapter

The code present in 2.6.32 should satisfy this requirement.  No
additional 'fixes' are planned for this area of code.
Comment 7 Andrius Benokraitis 2010-01-11 14:42:50 EST
Thanks Andrew - let's keep this open so that we can confirm with testing.
Comment 10 Chad Dupuis (Cavium) 2010-08-09 10:37:28 EDT
This was verified as fixed by QLogic in snapshot 8.
Comment 11 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-15 09:04:53 EST
