Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 0/4] Introduce a new helper for parsing ipv[4|6]:port
 to socket address

> Changes from v1:
> - rebased to 4.11-rc1
> - improved changelogs
> Changes from v0:
> - rebased on 4.10
> - splitted inet_pton_with_scope to be a bit saner (from Chrsitoph)
> - converted nvme-rdma host_traddr to use a generic helper
> We have some places in the stack that support ipv4 and ipv6. In
> some cases the user configuration does not reveal which
> address family is given and needs to be parsed from the input string.
> Given that the user-input varies between subsystems, some processing
> is required from the call-site to separate address and port strings.
> As a side-effect, this set adds ipv6 support for nvme over fabrics.

Hi Dave,

This set got review tags from two kernel maintainers but this is your
realm so I wouldn't be comfortable moving forward with this without
your feedback.
