This patch provides information for our management API for Fibre Channel devices. This provides
functionality that would formerly have been performed by ioctl's. It creates two more entries in sysfs,
along with our VPD info, SFP info and option rom control. These entries are used to pass thru commands.
Tested at QLogic. I believe it's submitted or queued for upstream. ( person on vacation )
Marcus, please post the patch ASA it's upstream... thanks!
