Yes, that's on my long term TODO list, getting rid of the SKBs used internally
so ibmvfc can be switched over, allow the setting of the NVMe Type code (or
even arbitrary typecodes) yada, yada.  It'll benefit fnic, bnx2fc and qedfc as
well, but I haven't been able to do much in this regard. Hannes and I have
internal patchsets flying around solving the fist little bits for it but
they're far from completion.
