Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-09-07 19:20:20 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion
in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has 
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed 
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update release.

Comment 3 Mike Christie 2011-10-09 07:02:05 UTC
Exception notes:

These patches are not invasive to the iscsi/scsi layer. They are mostly changes to the qla4xxx driver which is the only driver using the interface at this time. 

Without the patches the rhel 6 interface will be out of sync with what is going upstream so we would have to support a forked version.
