zfcp: fix fc_host port_type with NPIV

This change “zfcp: fix fc_host port_type with NPIV” in Linux kernel is authored by Steffen Maier <maier [at] linux.vnet.ibm.com> on Wed Aug 10 18:30:44 2016 +0200.

zfcp: fix fc_host port_type with NPIV

For an NPIV-enabled FCP device, zfcp can erroneously show
"NPort (fabric via point-to-point)" instead of "NPIV VPORT"
for the port_type sysfs attribute of the corresponding
s390-tools that can be affected are dbginfo.sh and ziomon.

zfcp_fsf_exchange_config_evaluate() ignores
fsf_qtcb_bottom_config.connection_features indicating NPIV
and only sets fc_host_port_type to FC_PORTTYPE_NPORT if
fsf_qtcb_bottom_config.fc_topology is FSF_TOPO_FABRIC.

Only the independent zfcp_fsf_exchange_port_evaluate()
evaluates connection_features to overwrite fc_host_port_type
to FC_PORTTYPE_NPIV in case of NPIV.
Code was introduced with upstream kernel 2.6.30
commit 0282985da5923fa6365adcc1a1586ae0c13c1617
("[SCSI] zfcp: Report fc_host_port_type as NPIV").

This works during FCP device recovery (such as set online)
because it performs FSF_QTCB_EXCHANGE_CONFIG_DATA followed by

However, the zfcp-specific scsi host sysfs attributes
"requests", "megabytes", or "seconds_active" trigger only
zfcp_fsf_exchange_config_evaluate() resetting fc_host
port_type to FC_PORTTYPE_NPORT despite NPIV.

The zfcp-specific scsi host sysfs attribute "utilization"
triggers only zfcp_fsf_exchange_port_evaluate() correcting
the fc_host port_type again in case of NPIV.

Evaluate fsf_qtcb_bottom_config.connection_features
in zfcp_fsf_exchange_config_evaluate() where it belongs to.
