This patch contains the following fixes :
1. Adapter is now functional after running offline diagnostics.
2. Added SPI interface code(for Xframe II) to perform EEPROM read/write
3. Modify expected value in register test depending on adapter(Xframe I/II).
4. Correct return values for functions called from offline diag routine.
5. Use correct API to write to RLDRAM registers.

Has this patch gone upstream?  If not, when can I expect to see it there?

The patch is not yet submitted to open source kernel. I plan to do it today
(worst case tomorrow).

Please verify that they behave as expected, and post the results
