Comment 7 John Jarvis 2009-11-10 17:56:37 UTC
This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
team for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release.   As a 
result of this evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of 
this feature in the next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release.   
While it is a goal to include this enhancement in the next minor release 
of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the enhancement is not yet committed for 
inclusion in the next minor release pending the next phase of actual 
code integration and successful Red Hat and partner testing.

Installed RHEL5.5 beta on disk connected to a Qlogic  ISP2432-based 4Gb Fibre Channel adapter using the qla2xxx driver version

Ran disk I/O stress using the dt tool without error.

I am working on getting the Qlogic CNA PCIe adapter to work with the switch in our lab. I am waiting to get the results for that adapter to mark this feature as verified.
