The best thing to do is set up the n5k with npv mode and have brocade running with npiv enabled on the port on the brocade. If I recall correctly, this will be FOS version 4.8 and newer on the brocade.
Its possible to have more links between npv and brocade but if you want to port channel them, please check first with brocade support if they allow F port channel trunking in their code. Not sure if FOS 6.2.2 supports it. From our side (cisco switch running npv) we should be able to do a port channel upto any NPIV switch provided the upstream switch supports it.
