Description Marcus Barrow 2009-06-23 10:09:14 EDT
Treat a global port-unavailable PORT_UPDATE (8014h) AEN as a
loop-down event.  For this case, within the FCoE domain, the
'logical' interface has been terminated, but the driver will
not receive the classic LOOP_DOWN AEN.

This patch corrects the driver's state engine and allows it to
recover and resume I/O.
