I'm not really a reviewer of mpt3sas, but since I commented earlier,
I took a quick look at this. Minor comments:
- Remove leading spaces from changelog and reformat to use the whole
No functional changes. This section of code "wait for IOC to be
operational" is used in many places across the driver. Factor
this code out into a new mpt3sas_wait_for_ioc_to_operational().
- "mpt3sas_wait_for_ioc_to_operational" isn't really grammatical in

loop instead of the while. The idea is that each individual patch is
simpler and more obvious because it only contains a single logical
