VMware SW-FCOE and Nexus 1000v

One of my customers have bought Dell M series servers with Intel X520 KR 10GE converged adapters. When trying to enable FCOE on these in ESXi 5.0 update 1 OR ESXi 5.1 they get the following error message:

Error: The CDP status of the distributed virtual switch &lt;<i>N1K_Name</i>&gt; is not in listen or both mode

According to a KB at VMware this is a prolem with "SW-FCOE" and N1000v
http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd...

FCOE on these adapters apparently works with Vmware's vDS.....

Anyone know a workaround for this or if Cisco is working on a fix for 1000v to fix this problem?
