The following series implements a few improvements to some of the user space tools.

Patches 1-7: Rework logging macros. I wanted uniform output, and I achieved that, but I'm
	     also moving some macros out of fcoemon_utils.h and into fcoemon.h. I'd like
	     to see fcoemon_utils.[ch] become more of an overall utility library. The
	     new VLAN discovery tool could make use of it eventually and possibly fcoeadm.

Patches 8-13: Have initd/fcoe read /etc/fcoe/config and pass "--syslog" forward if
	      USE_SYSLOG="yes". So, these patches add a '--syslog" option to fcoemon
	      and fcoeplumb. Also, when syslog is used don't print to stderr as well.

Patch 14: fcoemon was leaving defunct (zombie) processes for each fcoeplumb call. fcoemon
      	  needed to 'wait()' for the child processes to complete to re-claim them.

TODO: Update fcoemon man page.


Robert Love (14):
      fcoe-utils: wait() for child processes to complete
      fcoe-utils: Don't log to stderr when use_syslog is set
      fcoe-utils: Add "--syslog" flag to fcoemon
      fcoe-utils: Use fcoe_config not fcm_use_syslog and fcm_debug
      fcoe-utils: Add "--syslog" flag to fcoeplumb
      fcoe-utils: Correct fcoeplumb.in case statement indentation
      fcoe-utils: Have a fcoemon_utils.[ch] use_syslog flag
      fcoe-utils: Remove function name from print statements
      fcoe-utils: Convert all SA_LOG* functions to FCM_LOG*
      fcoe-utils: Add new macros to print interface name with statements
      fcoe-utils: remove SA_LOG_ERR_EXIT
      fcoe-utils: remove unused SA_LOG_EXIT macro
      fcoe-utils: rm sa_log_output_exit() wrapper for exit()
      fcoe-utils: Change sa_select_loop to have a return value
