[Open-FCoE] [PATCH 0/5] Series short description

Removed outer port instance in these  series of patches.

Resubmitting these series of patches after resolving conflicts with latest
open-fcoe.org upstream git tree and revised comments.

Currently OpenFC maintains several control structures for each enabled fcoe
interface, such as inner and outer fc_port, fcdev, openfc_softc,
fcs_state (for fc_local_port and fc_virt_fab) etc. Here fc_port should not
be confused with FC protocol's ports related structs, instead this fc_port
provides generic/portable interface to FCS sub module embedded inside openFC
for egress, ingress handlers and sa events lists to OpenFC for each
FCoE interface instance.

I removed outer port instance in these series of patches and instead of that
used existing fcdev structure or directly made function calls between FCS &
OpenFC for existing outer port egress and inegress functions.

Next series of patches will remove inner port and with that, fc_port.[ch]
files will be removed completely.
