This patch causes libvirt to look in both places.
 Important patch as it allows NPIV support to work both in Fedora and
older RHEL kernels.

  Okay that part of the patch looks just fine.

  But diff makes an horrible mess here !

  After looking at the file changes, I get that get_wwn() disapears,
it's inlined in check_fc_host_linux() twice and diff gets lost :-)
I'm not 100% sure why node_device_hal_linux.c needs such a treatment
since the test for both paths actually occurs in src/node_device.c
nodeDeviceVportCreateDelete() but the resulting code is actually smaller,

I had pretty much the same thought. The first part of the patch looks
good relating to the initial subject. The huge diff following that
doesn't seem related to the moving of vport file in sysfs ?

Sorry about that--one of the people who was hitting the problem was reporting that the WWNs were not being detected, so I modified that part of the code to make it easy to look in multiple places for those files as well. Since those files have not moved, at least on my RHEL system, those changes are probably irrelevant to this fix, and I will split this patch into two, a small one for the moved vport ops files and one for the other changes which also remove some duplicated code.
