Description Benjamin Li 2010-05-24 23:06:12 UTC
Description of problem:

Before there was no synchronization between iscsid during login and when the brcm_iscsiuio network stack was ready.  Because of this, if the brcm_iscsiuio stack is slow and may take longer then the iSCSI login timeout or may return a login error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Try to login to a iSCSI target via a Broadcom offload device, one will notice that login will occasionally fail.  This is true especially when the uIP network stack takes a while to initialize (ie. using a DHCP to obtain an IP address)

Comment 5 RHEL Program Management 2010-08-09 18:09:01 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 9 Gris Ge 2011-06-02 08:07:13 UTC
We don't have Broadcom iSCSI TOE in Red Hat.
Can  you help us for testing the patched rpm?

No hardware, Sanity Only.
