 Sun Fire[TM] V880 systems with older DPM firmware, 9228 or earlier, may see false obdiag failures when they upgrade to 4.18.x OBP or later.

When running obdiag with diag-level set to MAX you may see the onboard fcal controller "/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@2" fail incorrectly with this mismatch. When the false failure takes place this causes the system to become unbootable as the onboard fcal controller will be ASR'd out of the system. See example below:
