fcoet - fibre channel over Ethernet target mode driver

The fcoet driver is a pseudo device driver which encapsulates the raw Fibre Channel frames into FCoE Ethernet frames, or decapsulates FC frames from FCoE Ethernet frames. The supported FC frames contain extended/basic link services, common transport frames and target mode FCP frames.

The fcoet driver interfaces with COMSTAR FC transport driver, fct, and FCoE transport driver, fcoe(7D).
