[Open-FCoE] [PATCH v3 00/10] Adding support to fcoe transport

This is v3 of the series to add fcoe transport as a thin layer to the
existing Open-FCoE framework to allow third-party FCoE HBA drivers to
plug in easily if the default SW HBA fcoe.ko driver is sufficient for
the need. Related previous discussion are in the following threads:
RFC v1:

RFC v2:

Notes on v3:
1. Included 2 of Bhanu's ERESTARTSYS patches as patch 9 and 10.
2. Synced up w/ Open-FCoE's fcoe-next/master, so this series should apply
and build cleanly.
3. Did loop create-> i/o -> destroy test using default transport on
fcoe.ko, with the help from Bhanu on testing this framework using his
fcoe transport driver. 
4. Corresponding changes on fcoe-utils are required to reflect the above
changes, which I expect to follow soon.


Bhanu Gollapudi (2):
      fcoe: Return ERESTARTSYS on rtnl_trylock failure
      libfcoe: Handle ERESTARTSYS for fcoe transport

Yi Zou (8):
      fcoe: convert fcoe.ko to become an fcoe transport provider driver
      fcoe: prepare fcoe for using fcoe transport
      libfcoe: include fcoe_transport.c into kernel libfcoe module
      libfcoe: remove libfcoe.c, use the same fcoe_ctlr.c instead
      libfcoe: rename libfcoe.c to fcoe_cltr.c for the coming fcoe_transport.c
      libfcoe: add implementation to support fcoe transport
      libfcoe: add fcoe_transport structure defines to include/scsi/libfcoe.h
      libfcoe: move logging macros into the local libfcoe.h header file
