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 :-)
