    I'm responsible for developing OSD driver [on the initiator] for
Solaris and can provide experimental packages if you are interested to
try out.
    I also have an API that generates OSD CDBs and submits them to the
target and a test program to send basic OSD operations.
    The API design document is available in the Documentation section of
the OpenSolaris OSD webpage.
    The binaries on the webpage are a bit outdated and will be updated
    Let me know if you are interested to try them out. It would be great
for us if we could get some interoperability going.
