We need to hold off on this change. Yes, there are customers of LSI Logic using mptstm.c, as

We are looking into supporting this once its available.

Well, SCST is already available, stable and useful. People use it without considerable problems, except with inconvenient LUNs management, which we are going to fix in the next version. I don't expect it will be considering for the kernel inclusion at least until 2.7. So, you can start supporting it right now :-).

With the current kernel development model, there is no 2.7 planned for the next years.

Linus and Andrew believe 6 was an odd number, so you could submit your code now. [1]

OK, I'll prepare the next version as the kernel patch.
