[ Upstream commit 7b08e89f98cee9907895fabb64cf437bc505ce9a ]

The driver is unable to successfully login with remote device. During pt2pt
login, the driver completes its FLOGI request with the remote device having
WWN precedence. The remote device issues its own (delayed) FLOGI after
accepting the driver's and, upon transmitting the FLOGI, immediately
recognizes it has already processed the driver's FLOGI thus it transitions
to sending a PLOGI before waiting for an ACC to its FLOGI.

In the driver, the FLOGI is received and an ACC sent, followed by the PLOGI
being received and an ACC sent. The issue is that the PLOGI reception
occurs before the response from the adapter from the FLOGI ACC is
received. Processing of the PLOGI sets state flags to perform the REG_RPI
mailbox command and proceed with the rest of discovery on the port. The
same completion routine used by both FLOGI and PLOGI is generic in
nature. One of the things it does is clear flags, and those flags happen to
drive the rest of discovery. So what happened was the PLOGI processing set
the flags, the FLOGI ACC completion cleared them, thus when the PLOGI ACC
completes it doesn't see the flags and stops.

Fix by modifying the generic completion routine to not clear the rest of
discovery flag (NLP_ACC_REGLOGIN) unless the completion is also associated
with performing a mailbox command as part of its handling. For things such
as FLOGI ACC, there isn't a subsequent action to perform with the adapter,
thus there is no mailbox cmd ptr. PLOGI ACC though will perform REG_RPI
upon completion, thus there is a mailbox cmd ptr.
