You may not have understood me. You can coexist but only in separately
configured/compiled kernels. That allows for you to select support for
platforms/HBAs that aren't yet supported with the new framework. I just
claim that it is not necessarily desirable to have to two support both
frameworks running in the same kernel at the same time.
