SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC] iw_cxgb3: Support "iwarp-only" interfaces to avoid 4-tuple conflicts with the host stack.

What's wrong with my suggestion of having the iwarp driver create an
"iwX" interface to go with the normal "ethX" interface? It seems
simpler to me, and there's a somewhat similar precedent with how
mac80211 devices create both wlan0 and wmaster0 interfaces.
