RE: [dm-devel] Custom priority callout



By "faster" I just meant conceptually, fibre->iSCSI HBA->iSCSI software.
I didn't have any intention of actually polling the link somehow. 

And I will absolutely post it back to the list once we get it written, I
already posted the hardware table definition, so that should be working
its way in here.

Nice. I would suggest you develop a library implementation and post it
here. This way it could be integrated in all of the Linux distributions
over time and your customers won't have to download a package.

I am curious how you are going to figure this out on the iSCSI
connection?
Nop-out latency?
