Hey Andrew,

Please add this patch along with Greg KH's kobject fixes. This module
is dependent on the fixes that Greg KH has in his patches git tree.

This patch (v0.4.5) adds /sysfs/firmware/ibft/[initiator|targetX|ethernetX]
directories along with text properties which export the the iSCSI
Boot Firmware Table (iBFT) structure.

What is iSCSI Boot Firmware Table? It is a mechanism for the iSCSI
tools to extract from the machine NICs the iSCSI connection information
so that they can automagically mount the iSCSI share/target. Currently
the iSCSI information is hard-coded in the initrd.

For full details of the IBFT structure please take a look at:
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/systems/support/system_x_pdf/ibm_iscsi_boot_firmware_table_v1.02.pdf

+What:		/sys/firmware/ibft/initiator
+Date:		November 2007
+Contact:	Konrad Rzeszutek <konradr@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
+Description:	The /sys/firmware/ibft/initiator directory will contain
+		files that expose the iSCSI Boot Firmware Table initiator data.
+		Usually this contains the Initiator name.
+
+What:		/sys/firmware/ibft/targetX
+Date:		November 2007
+Contact:	Konrad Rzeszutek <konradr@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
+Description:	The /sys/firmware/ibft/targetX directory will contain
+		files that expose the iSCSI Boot Firmware Table target data.
+		Usually this contains the target's IP address, boot LUN,
+		target name, and what NIC it is associated with. It can also
+		contain the CHAP name (and password), the reverse CHAP
+		name (and password)
+
+What:		/sys/firmware/ibft/ethernetX
+Date:		November 2007
+Contact:	Konrad Rzeszutek <konradr@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
+Description:	The /sys/firmware/ibft/ethernetX directory will contain
+		files that expose the iSCSI Boot Firmware Table NIC data.
+		This can this can the IP address, MAC, and gateway of the NIC.

When adding new sysfs things (especially things as complex as this) please
fully describe the user-visible interface in the changelog so that we can
review your interface design.

Does this code follow the one-value-per-sysfs-file convention?

Usually we'd make the CONFIG_ISCSI_IBFT_FIND=n version of this function
static inline in a header.  As it stands this code will add a pointless
empty function to the vmlinux image.

checkpatch should have told you that this "= 0" shouldn't be there.  But it
doesn't.

A brief search for the locking which protects these lists was unsuccessful.

I'm seeing an awful lot of sprintf()s in here which look like they should
be snprintf().  By what means is this code bulletproof against overflows?

I'm not sure that two usages really justifies IBFT_VERIFY_HDR_FIELD's
existence.  If you're really attched to it then I'd suggest that it be
undefed immediately after having been read, for readability reasons.

Is this x86-specific?  Are suitable Kconfig dependencies in place?

We'd more usually use #ifdef here.  Whatever.

Often we don't bother putting declarations like this inside the ifdef. 
Upside: cleaner code.  Downside: error-detection happens at link-time
rather tha compile-time.

checkpatch checks for static initializers, not non-static ones.
Should that be changed?

Ok, this line would be correctly picked up if it was being added by this
author, but this line is in the context only.  We do not blame the current
author for those.

Somehow this variant was not covered.  Added to the tests and to the
next version:

This is a bit tricky b/c this goes to the drivers/firmware and also depends on 
the kobject changes in Greg KH tree. But I should have included Mike on the 
CC which I keep on forgetting <sigh>.

Done. This repost:

Fixed. The function now is in include/linux/iscsi_ibft.h

The data structure does not change when the machine has booted up. The iBFT is 
a read-only structure and there are no known mechanism to write to it via the 
iBFT structure (or even BIOS up-calls). You have to use custom-vendor 
applications to flash the BIOS with the new iBFT structure. Hence no need for 
locking at this stage - when the specs becomes more advance I will add them 
if they are required.

There is no reading of data from the user-land. All of it is just outputing to 
the /sysfs entries from reading the data in the iBFT structure which the BIOS 
created.

FIEF, or FEUD. In its origin, a fief was a district of country allotted to 
one of the chiefs who invaded the Roman empire, as a stipend or reward.

Originally I had it to be x86-specific but was told that I should make it all 
platforms since the IBFT is platform independent. Somebody can very well 
insert a NIC with IBFT on a IA64 machine or PPC.

I would beg to differ regarding the powerpc.  On powerpc, the bios is
invisible and ignored.  We have our own "special" way, via the device-tree
in procfs.

iBFT is not platform-independent; it only makes sense on platforms with 
ACPI (and even then, just barely; ACPI is a poor fit for it and it was 
probably "integrated" with ACPI for political reasons.)

The spec just mentions that iBFT table has to be "compatible with an ACPI 
table format" and nothing else. In reality I've only tested this on x86_64 
and i386. We can limit it to be X86 || IA64 but I wouldn't make it dependent 
on ACPI - as this data does not necessarily have to be exported via ACPI.

Well, that's not quite accurate.  It also mentions that OEM IDs for 
vendors come from the ACPI SIG, and they also reserved the "IBFT" 
signature with the ACPI SIG (it's in ACPI 3.0).  It's also pretty clear 
that the "Locating the iBFT" section in the spec used to be a list with 
more than one entry and has been edited down to one.

That being said, I don't think there's any reason to expect the table to 
show up on anything but i386 and x86_64, and maybe ia64.

It is probably better if it goes through Greg or Andrew. It will not 
conflict with any iscsi patches. It looks like it is heavier on kobject 
and sysfs and has some acpi digging magic, and almost no iscsi stuff in 
there.

It does not need to go through me as all of the kobject changes it
depended on are now in Linus's tree.

I've posted a new patch (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/1/30/531) that includes 
that dependency in the Kconfig (i386, x86_64, ia64)
