fp - Sun Fibre Channel port driver


     The fp driver is a  Sun  Fibre  Channel  nexus  driver  that
     enables  Fibre Channel topology discovery, device discovery,
     Fibre Channel adapter port management and other capabilities
     through  well-defined  Fibre  Channel  adapter driver inter-

     The fp driver requires the presence of a fabric name  server
     in fabric and public loop topologies to discover fibre chan-
     nel devices.  In private loop topologies, the driver discov-
     ers  devices  by  performing PLOGI to all valid AL_PAs, pro-
     vided that devices do  not  participate  in  LIRP  and  LILP
     stages of loop initialization.
