Before I ACK any patches to the iSCSI driver to deal with other kernel
versions I want a documentation patch describing the exact sysfs trees
we need to deal with for the particular kernel variants the future code
patch is intended to support. This is the only way we stand a chance of
being able to maintain this long term.
