Why not have the daemon started by a udev rule on successful driver
attach?

Good point.

Mike, sorry for another mail today, is there a reason why there isn't a
udev rule to start brcm_iscsiuio when bnx2i successfully attaches?

Ales

On a second thought: during normal boot brcm_iscsiuio is started along with iscsid and manual load of the drivers (they are not picked automatically for some reason related to how the partial offload work with the network drivers). This way everything's kept in one place and it's simple for the maintainer to change this, without having to touch udev rules that are always a bit of pain.

Anaconda just does (a subset of) what the /etc/init.d/iscsid does.
