[Open-FCoE] [PATCH 3/5] libfc: add local port hook for provider session lookup

From: Joe Eykholt <jeykholt at cisco.com>

The target provider needs a per-instance lookup table
or other way to lookup sessions quickly without going through
a linear list or serializing too much.

Add a simple void * array indexed by FC-4 type to the fc_lport.
