Emulex OneConnect OCe 10100 and VMware 4.1iU2

I have checked the HCL, forums, Emulex site and cannot find any information on thw Emulex OneConnect OCe 10100. My dilema is that the customer has many Dell 710 with this card. I cannot find it on the HCL, it causes VM and host lockup in the hardware iSCSI persona, but works with software iSCSI. The upgrade path to vSpere 5 may have issues, and if it is not on the HCL, VMware will not support.

I got a response from Mike Brown referencing http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1027206. Points go to Mike Brown for the first and quickest response.

I also got an explanation from Andreas about the OCe 10100 being a device family rather than a specific card and also referencing this link http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/dt_esxi50_emulex_be2net_413340/dHRAYndld3diZHAlJQ==

I think I will have an answer to this in a few days and will post the results.
