Greg, what's your take on the quality of this new driver? Do you have
some time to do a review of this with drivers/staging/ versus drivers/
glasses on? The Git URI is at:

master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi-rc-fixes-2.6 master

To me, after a very quick skimming of it it's borderline. The driver
looks like proper Linux code at first sight in places, but i can see
_lots_ of (as in thousands of) odd bits - at least odd for a newly
submitted driver:

- 200+ instances of bfa_boolean_t, which is defined via:

enum bfa_boolean {
BFA_FALSE = 0,
BFA_TRUE = 1
};
#define bfa_boolean_t enum bfa_boolean
that should be bool simply.

- the driver is full with misaligned vertical spacing like:

struct bfa_pcidev_s {
int pci_slot;
u8 pci_func;
u16 device_id;
bfa_os_addr_t pci_bar_kva;
};
void
bfa_timer_beat(struct bfa_timer_mod_s *mod)
{
struct list_head *qh = &mod->timer_q;
struct list_head *qe, *qe_next;
struct bfa_timer_s *elem;
struct list_head timedout_q;
which suggests that this driver was treated with a
de-ugly-ifying sed job without a human looking at the result. There's
over a thousand (!) of such instances in the driver.

- various forms of avoidable whitespace damage: for example 873
instances of 'space' character followed by 'tab'.

- bfa_timer.c looks weird - implements a naive timeout mechanism on top
of real timers? Why not use real timers in to begin with?

- Also, the .h files are layed out oddly. Bits of them are in
include/*, bits of them in *.h.
- the 90+ easily avoidable stylistic details attached below in
drivers/scsi/bfa/fcbuild.c.

- accesses to cmnd->host_scribble both seem an ancient method, and
are also somewhat SMP-barrier-unclean. (i'm sure it works and is
correct in practice as there are heavy, serializing functions around
those places, but the casts still look ugly and there are no
barriers.)

- The 290+ instances of bfa_assert() uses should probably be BUG_ON()s
or WARN_ON()s instead of a wrapped panic. Nothing ever defines
BFA_PERF_BUILD so the wrapping seems removable.

havent looked further and these are all easily addressed by just looking
at the code and doing fixes that dont impact the resulting .o - so very
easy to do en masse.

I dont know what's the current mainline inclusion quality threshold for
non-staging Linux drivers - it might be ok. Also, the driver commit has
been rebased a few days ago which makes it hard to see its stability
track record.
