Huh ??? 2.6.18 ? I remember that was ~5 years ago, cannot imagine even
boot it up
on current hardware. But as long as scsi constant names did not change, the
patch should be compatible, there is nothing kernel-specific.
Btw, I'm still confused, why did the original author exclude so many
scsi commands from passthrough.

Hmm, so why does it work at all, did suse people port it secretly ?
Correct me if I'm wrong,
but actually, I cannot imagine the vscsi drivers have anything special
related to pvops,
its just a simple passthrough layer for scsi commands. Or do you mean a
scsi driver implementation is planned ? The current vscsi works actually
I'm getting native performance, much better than using xvd.
There some are other glitches with the vscsi python xend code in current
scsi devices are not found on "xm create" due to mismatch with lsscsi
some deprecated python stuff. But I don´t have a clean patch, just
maybe I submit another bugreport to suse.

Ok, I'm attaching the changed patch, hope the format is correct now.
I'm also adding the Fujitsu authors to cc: as Jan kindly googled out
somewhere their emails.
