qla2xxx: qla84xxx: Fix 128Kb limitation in netlink messages;
Description of problem:
The patch under https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=456900
adds support for Netlink Messages to configure QLA84XX. However the linux implementation of Netlink limits the message size to 128Kb. This patch overcomes that limitation.
Also this syncs up the private netlink to the format which is proposed upstream.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Send netlink messages over 128Kb size (example load qla84xx firmware).
Steps to Reproduce:
