lpfc driver update
With the latest update, LPE31000, LPE32000 HBAs, and all HBA variants of this architecture now detect and enable both Broadcom-ECD certified SFP and QSFP optics.
For firmware rev 126.96.36.199 and later, unqualified optics are disabled, the network link shows `link down` state, and an error message is logged to the log file.
The lpfc driver in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8 displays the following message and the network link does not come up:
3176 Misconfigured Physical Port - Port Name [wwpn] Unknown event status [status]
The users are recommended to use only Broadcom-ECD certified SFP and QSFP optics. If any of the 3176 messages are seen in the logs and the link does not come up, contact Broadcom-ECD technical support.
