Some very nice work to make this all go Chris.. 8-)

Thanks again btw for your target_core_mod patches along the way to v3!

So I've merged a squashed version this series from:

https://github.com/bootc/Linux-SBP-2-Target.git patch-v3

into lio-core/master, and have now pushed to k.o upstream

This looks to me like a reasonable candidate for a v3.5 mainline merge,
so we need to go ahead and get this into target-pending.. Also, thanks
for getting Stefan's ACK's here on the drivers/firmware/ specific
changes..

So for new fabric drivers (as discused with Sebastian and usb-gadget
recently) that the target team has been enforcing that new fabric
modules convert to use a single source / header file for readability and
maintainability purposes.

It would be great if you can publish one more branch (no need to re-post
the full diff) that takes your patch-v3 down to a single .c/.h file.
Otherwise, I'm fine to take the 15 minutes to do this conversion ahead
of dropping into target-pending for the sunday night linux-next build.

Thanks again Chris!
