[SCSI] FC Pass Thru support
Attached is the ELS/CT pass-thru patch for the FC Transport. The patch creates a generic framework that lays on top of bsg and the SGIO v4 ioctl in order to pass transaction requests to LLDD's. The interface supports the following operations: On an fc_host basis: Request login to the specified N_Port_ID, creating an fc_rport. Request logout of the specified N_Port_ID, deleting an fc_rport Send ELS request to specified N_Port_ID w/o requiring a login, and wait for ELS response. Send CT request to specified N_Port_ID and wait for CT response. Login is required, but LLDD is allowed to manage login and decide whether it stays in place after the request is satisfied. Vendor-Unique request. Allows a LLDD-specific request to be passed to the LLDD, and the passing of a response back to the application. On an fc_rport basis: Send ELS request to nport and wait for ELS response. Send CT request to nport and wait for CT response. The patch also exports several headers from include/scsi such that they can be available to user-space applications: include/scsi/scsi.h include/scsi/scsi_netlink.h include/scsi/scsi_netlink_fc.h include/scsi/scsi_bsg_fc.h For further information, refer to the last RFC: http://marc.info/?l=linux-scsi&m=123436574018579&w=2 Note: Documentation is still spotty and will be added later.
