Comment 1 John Jarvis 2008-07-15 15:18:12 UTC
IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback

Comment 2 IBM Bug Proxy 2008-08-28 22:10:24 UTC
there were couple of patches accepted upstream on 08/07. The current rhel4
kernel code on is way behind on
upstream patches.

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-09-03 12:58:24 UTC
Updating PM score.

Comment 4 John Jarvis 2008-10-06 19:18:39 UTC
This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux team
for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release.   As a result of this
evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of this feature in the
next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release.   While it is a goal to
include this enhancement in the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux,
the enhancement is not yet committed for inclusion in the next minor release
pending the next phase of actual code integration and successful Red Hat and
partner testing.

Comment 5 Andrius Benokraitis 2009-01-09 18:10:36 UTC
AFAIK, no changes are planned to the qla3xxx driver for 4.8. Correct, QLogic?

Comment 6 Andrius Benokraitis 2009-01-09 18:20:19 UTC
QLogic - please re-open if I'm not correct about Comment #5.
