[Open-FCoE] [PATCH] fcoe-utils: Add SUPPORTED_DRIVERS field to config

Nithin Sujir nsujir at broadcom.com
Wed Jan 26 20:12:08 UTC 2011


SUPPORTED_DRIVERS is a space separated string field added to the config
file. The fcoe service will use this field instead of the previous
hardcoded "fcoe" to modprobe during startup.
