SubjectATA over ethernet swapping and obfuscated code
Hi!

I wanted to know if it is possible/okay to swap over AOE...

According to
http://www.coraid.com/support/linux/EtherDrive-2.6-HOWTO-5.html#ss5.20
.. it runs OOM even during normal use, so I guess swapping over it is
no-no?

Can I build both client and server for these using free software?

In the process, I looked at the aoe code, and parts of it look like
obfuscated C contest. The use of switch() as an if was particulary
creative; I'm not even sure if I translated it properly... can you
take a look?

(Patch is

but I did not even compile test it)

aoedev_by_sysminor_m() returns with spinlock held in error case; I
guess that's bad.

{
struct aoedev *d;

break;

d = aoedev_newdev(bufcnt);
if (d == NULL) {

printk(KERN_INFO "aoe: aoedev_newdev
failure.\n");
return NULL;

}
d->sysminor = sysminor;
d->aoemajor = AOEMAJOR(sysminor);
d->aoeminor = AOEMINOR(sysminor);
}
spin_unlock_irqrestore(&devlist_lock, flags);
return d;
}
