Last time I asked him (ok, that's a looong time ago) he didn't want to
submit it for 2.4.  His driver is in 2.5 though but is 2.4-compatible.

It would be really nice (TM) to see it in Marcelo's tree.

Well, that someone is qlogic.  But I don's see why it should go into
the ia64 tree.  Once qlogic got the driver in shape it and/or the feral
driver should go into mainline.  This is actually on the 2.6 should-fix
