Hi Mike,

Herein attached patches for having dhcp provisioning support in cxgb3i. I have added one new iscsi netlink message ISCSI_UEVENT_REQ_IPCONF.

Is the idea to have iscsid/uip send down this msg?

Was it not possible to hook in more like how bnx2i does dhcp?

yep, idea is to have iscsid send down ISCSI_UEVENT_REQ_IPCONF msg. bnx2i approach in our case for at least T3 is not feasible.

I think adding DHCP in the kernel is getting a little crazy :) If we go down this path, I agree with the other person that stated it should at least be generic.
