[Open-FCoE] Setup question

Seems the p2p mode between initiator and sw target is broken for the
re-architecture code, I likely to know how do you guys test the
initiator when you do the re-arch? Does it have to go thru a fcgw or a
real switch fabric? Is there other easy way that I can get this set up
with a connection like before?
Thanks again for your help.

fcconf was our user application before our re-architecture (the process
that converted openfc.ko to libfc.ko). We had to remove fcconf because
it was getting information from the kernel in the wrong way. We've made
a small application fcoeadm that will create/destroy and soon we'll be
adding code to report information like what fcconf did.

git clone git://open-fcoe.org/openfc/open-fcoe.git

You will need to use fcconf for the target because the target is based
on our pre-architecture. 

Unfortunately my guess is that point-to-point mode is broken for the
re-architecture code (the initiator), but I don't know for sure. It's
been untested for some time.
