    Well, if the hardware implementation would always be straight forward to
    what you know from PCs, it wouldn't be required to apply additional
    patches to the common code, but it would be easy to stay within the
    architecture specifics. Unfortunately it is not always that easy, by
    large related to virtualization issues ... not an excuse, but an
    explanation. Those not intending to use Linux on IBM's mainframes, and
    what's worth in this context its FCP support can safely ignore the SCSI
    related patch. Anybody else will need it - but you're welcome to show
    alternatives, I'm sure the folks having written the code do very much
    appreciate any guidance you can provide 'em getting to a nicer/cleaner
    implementation finding everybody's appreciation :-)
