"only in separately configured/compiled kernels" is wrong.
(as Justin and I said, and as you are understanding) :-)

Yes, it is certainly one of the options which we will select.
But there are other options.

I'm only talking about the possible technical desicions and pros and cons.

But that doesn't support the machines which have both CAM-only HBA and
Julian-only HBA.

It depends.
And if the transition takes very long time, it is perhaps desirable.
Do you understand my point ?
