parent[SCSI] fix scsi_wait_scan (diff)
Merge tag 'scsi-misc' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi
Pull final round of SCSI updates from James Bottomley: "This is primarily another round of driver updates (bnx2fc, qla2xxx, qla4xxx) including the target mode driver for qla2xxx. We've also got a couple of regression fixes (async scanning, broken this merge window and a fix to a long standing break in the scsi_wait_scan module)." * tag 'scsi-misc' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi: (45 commits) [SCSI] fix scsi_wait_scan [SCSI] fix async probe regression [SCSI] be2iscsi: fix dma free size mismatch regression [SCSI] qla4xxx: Update driver version to 5.02.00-k17 [SCSI] qla4xxx: Capture minidump for ISP82XX on firmware failure [SCSI] qla4xxx: Add change_queue_depth API support [SCSI] qla4xxx: Fix clear ddb mbx command failure issue. [SCSI] qla4xxx: Fix kernel panic during discovery logout. [SCSI] qla4xxx: Correct early completion of pending mbox.

+Description: 'FCoE FCF' instances on the fcoe bus. A FCF is a Fibre Channel
+ Forwarder, which is a FCoE switch that can accept FCoE
+ (Ethernet) packets, unpack them, and forward the embedded
+ Fibre Channel frames into a FC fabric. It can also take
+ outbound FC frames and pack them in Ethernet packets to
+ be sent to their destination on the Ethernet segment.
+ fabric_name: Identifies the fabric that the FCF services.
+ switch_name: Identifies the FCF.
+ priority: The switch's priority amongst other FCFs on the same
+ fabric.
+ selected: 1 indicates that the switch has been selected for use;
+ 0 indicates that the swich will not be used.
+ fc_map: The Fibre Channel MAP
+ vfid: The Virtual Fabric ID
+ mac: The FCF's MAC address
+ fka_peroid: The FIP Keep-Alive peroid
+ fabric_state: The internal kernel state
+ "Unknown" - Initialization value
+ "Disconnected" - No link to the FCF/fabric
+ "Connected" - Host is connected to the FCF
+ "Deleted" - FCF is being removed from the system
+ dev_loss_tmo: The device loss timeout peroid for this FCF.
+Notes: A device loss infrastructre similar to the FC Transport's
+ is present in fcoe_sysfs. It is nice to have so that a
+ link flapping adapter doesn't continually advance the count
+ used to identify the discovered FCF. FCFs will exist in a
+ "Disconnected" state until either the timer expires and the
+ FCF becomes "Deleted" or the FCF is rediscovered and becomes
+ "Connected."
+Users: The first user of this interface will be the fcoeadm application,
+ which is commonly packaged in the fcoe-utils package.
