Hello colleagues,

There are new NVMEoTCP modules were added recently in upstream Kernel (Host and Target -https://github.com/torvalds/linux/tree/master/drivers/nvme ).

Can you please comment if it is planned to support in UEK5 ?

Thanks

    As a general rule, features which are brand-new in the kernel.org "mainline" kernel do not show up in the currently-shipping UEK generation, because UEK strives to be stable for existing users. I can't comment on whether backporting is planned (nor would I necessarily be aware of it).

    It's much more likely, but not guaranteed, that the driver would show up in UEK6, when a newer kernel.org branch is selected for that.
