Symptoms

 After upgrading the fcode of QLogic-branded FC HBAs, when there are
multiple HBAs in the system, the instance number will change.
This issue will prevent the system from seeing the storage devices at
the cXtYdZ number that is expected.

The root cause of the change of instance number is that the physical device path is changed.
For example:
Orginal path: /pci@13d,700000/scsi@1/..
New path:     /pci@13d,700000/QLGC,qla@1/..

It involve the qla22xx and qla23xx series QLogic-branded , and
was affected with the driver below 4.13 and fcode below 2.00.06.
