FCoE is not in any of the release yet. You'll see, it is only in the
experimental archive. The reason being, I wasn't able to get access to
the FCoE hardware for Debian, as I had hoped.
If you can help test with FCoE stack for Debian, I can work with you.
Let me know.
For Squeeze, I don't think much can be done. This stack is not in
Squeeze, so I'm not sure if the policy allows to push it to its
backports. We can definitely do it for Wheezy.
