The meaning of this log info value is "Virtual IO has failed and has
to be retried".

Firmware will provide this log info value with IOC Status
"SCSI_IOC_TERMINATED", whenever a drive (with is a part of a volume)
is pulled and pushed back with some minimal delay. With this log info
value, firmware informs the driver to retry the failed IO command
infinite times, so to provide some time for the firmware to discover
the reinserted drive successfully instated of just retrying failed
command for five times( doesn't giving enough time for firmware to
complete the drive discovery) and failing the IO permanently even
though drive came back successfully.
