I've rebased feature tree to current tip of fcoe-fixes and also made 
this available on web at 
The rebase required me to  resolve few merge conflicts and update  FIP 
DEBUG macros as per recent logging changes (removed FC_DBG and using DBG 
in macro name).

To keep these two trees in sycn the fcoe-feature tree would require 
periodic rebase to fcoe-fixes tree till feature tree specific patches 
(FIP for now)  pushed to linux-scsi. We should be applying major code 
changes/pactches to foce-feature tree and have only bug fixes on 
fcoe-fixes tree, this would help Rob to collect large code changes from 
fcoe-feature tree to push during .30 merge window and would also help 
during rebase in collecting fewer changes from fcoe-fixes.
