Adam,

Thanks for the clarification wrt to your latest patches. Do you think
it would make sense to convert the synchronization between the build IO
path and map updates to use the LLD specific instance->hba_lock instead
of host_lock..? This is the method I have been employing thus far w/
with the host_lock-less conversion for megaraid_sas, and from a quick
grok it appears this might be the most sane approach for MSI-X support.

Any thoughts..?

Best Regards,

--nab
