Specifically with the Brocade 825, other threads are suggesting that a supposed version 3.1 of the driver will support this and is slated for Summer 2012.
Is this still on schedule or is there a confirmed release date?
The release notes for the current version 188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206 still indicates that there is no support for Direct Connect (Arbitrated-Loop).
Any suggestive workarounds?
Required for Direct Connect between an FC-based P6300 EVA and ESXi 5.0 U1 with a 825 HBA (non-Fabric topology).

Even though this is an older thread: the 3.1 driver has been released in July and FC-AL support for direct attach to storage has been added.
