    I am requesting SR-IOV support for fibre channel adapters not Ethernet.
    With IBM Power Systems and IBM I, without VIOS.

    Is the request to support SRIOV without using VIOS or SRIOV vNIC without using VIOS? If its the former, SRIOV Logical Ports can be assigned to the partitions without having to create a virtual adapter in VIOS, but LPM won't work in that case. For using LPM with SRIOV, you would need the vNIC model.
