Changes

Sun Fire[TM] 12K/15K/E20K/E25K: Hpost fails an IO board which "Shares an expander with an unthrottled USIV+ board which is active in another domain"

This new behavior was introduced in Patch ID 124319-01 , which included additional checks for AR3 (Address Repeater version 3).

The behavior is not a bug, but an additional safety check to prevent the possibility of a Dstop due to an AR overflow.
