The FIP implementation is upstream, in drivers/scsi/libfcoe.c.
There is a local define in include/scsi/fc/fc_fip.h for ETH_P_FCOE
and I'd rather move it to the propper location.

include/scsi/fc/fc_fip.h:28:#ifndef ETH_P_FIP
include/scsi/fc/fc_fip.h:29:#define ETH_P_FIP	0x8914 /* FIP Ethertype */

One thing to note is that I will later push a patch to linux-scsi
to remove the define in fc_fip.h. It may be preferable to do both
operations in one patch, but I was worried about cross-subsystem
conflicts with other patches to either netdev or fcoe code. I can
refresh this patch to include the fc_fip.h removal and you and James
can decide who takes the patch if that's a better aproach.--
