Whiteboard

Be advised feature freeze for Icehouse is likely to fall on the 18'th of February, so there's not a ton of time to get this work completed.

Understanding this is still pending legal review but that the code is ready. I'm holding off on removing from Icehouse but after FFE I don't think we'll make an exception here.

VNX Direct driver is approved by EMC legal to contribute to Icehouse. Will submit code soon.
