This blog describes patches for the Linux aoe driver, the in-kernel AoE initiator. The patches change an aoe driver to fix problems or to add features. They are considered "unstable" because they are experimental and not thoroughly tested, but you can try them if you have a test environment. If you do, please leave feedback here by commenting. You can also email ecashin at coraid dot com directly.
A patch can be applied to the aoe driver source code using the "patch" command while working in the aoe source directory, e.g.,
patch -p1 < /tmp/aoe6-69-70pre1.diff
There are two places to find the aoe driver. One is at CORAID's website, and the other is in the Linux kernel distributed at kernel.org or through the various Linux distributions (like Fedora and debian).
Unless otherwise specified, the patches here apply to the aoe driver at the CORAID website. There is ongoing work to bring the kernel.org driver up to the level of development that the CORAID-website driver has reached.
