Well, this is open source ... you don't get to request new features; you
get to implement them, so if you need something that SCSI or the FC
transport doesn't provide, you just add it (rather than coding either a
fix or an enhancement for your driver alone).

However, you're quite lucky. So far, as James Smart said, I haven't
seen you ask for any features that we don't either provide or are in
process of agreeing the implementation of.

James
