Subject[ANNOUNCE] TCM/LIO v4.0.0-rc6 for 2.6.37-rc6
Greetings all,

It is my pleasure to announce TCM/LIO v4.0.0-rc6 for v2.6.37-rc6 has
been tagged and pushed into lio-core-2.6.git/lio-4.0 and master
branches. It has been almost two months since the last -rc5 for .36-rc8
was released, and since that time a number of refactoring and cleanup
patch series from Christoph Hellwig have been merged to reduced the
target core logic and backend drivers by nearly ~4200 LOC!

A big thanks to Christoph for jumping on a number of areas that have
needed attention in target_core_transport.c for some time, and for being
the very first 'third party' kernel developer to pull ahead in the
TCM/LIO patch ranking for a single TCM/LIO release. It was a good
race, and hch did very much earn his victory for this round (41 vs. 36)
in the final rankings attached below.

Also, I am proud to announce this is the first release of Target Core
code running with a publically available HW target fabric module. The
tcm_qla2xxx and qla2xxx LLD code is now available from the
lio-core-2.6.git/tcm_qla2xxx branch, and more information about the
recent Alpha -> BETA release and the ongoing developers are available

And the initial RFC patches here:

There have also been a number of important bugfixes that have gone into
this release, so for folks running on earlier v4.0 code please consider
upgrading now.. Here is a brief list of the critical fixes from below:

*) tcm/iblock: Fix bio-set leak during bio exception handling (nab)

*) tcm/pscsi: Fix incorrect usage of head_of_queue with
blk_execute_rq_nowait() (boaz)

*) tcm/pscsi: Fix failure case for __pscsi_map_task_SG() (nab)

*) tcm: Fix OOPs w/ task->task_sg_bidi[] for non BIDI operation (kiran)

*) target: Fix tfo->write_pending() fabric callback ordering (nab,
kiran, and others)

There has also been work in a number of branches where work is ongoing,
and not mentioned in the final stats below. This includes Tomo-san's
work with the ibmvscsis module for IBM POWER VSCSI in branch
tcm_ibmvstgt, and Kiran Patil for his recent work in the
tcm_fc_ddp_offload branch for adding offload support for 10 Gb/sec Intel
NICs with TCM_FC/OpenFCOE target code that will be merged into TCM/LIO
upstream in a future release.

Kiran also found and fixed his first bug in upstream Target code, and
helped squash another long standing (since v2.x day) issue wrt to
interrupt context usage required for HW target mode within the
transport_generic_write_pending() callback. He will be continuing to
test and improve the TCM_FC/OpenFCoE code on Intel 10 Gb/sec hardware,
and maintaining the DDP offload pieces for FCoE within
lio-core-2.6.git/tcm_fc_ddp_offload branch on Thank you and
great work Kiran!

At this point v4.0 development will be slowing down, as I will only be
accepting critical fixes at this point for v4.0.0-rc7 as we move into
the testing and validation phase for .38 mainline code. So please
folks, if anyone has immediate issues for v4.0 that need to be
considered, please make myself and other core target devels aware and we
will do our best to get them addressed.

Best Regards,
