Changes

The fix for the issue documented in Doc ID 2391817.1 creates the informational alert.  These are alerts and not fault diagnosis.  FMA alert messages can easily be listed with the command 'fmadm list-alert' to differentiate them from faults ('fmadm list-fault').

The removed locations should include these,

FMA Reported FRU                         Corrected FRU Location
/SYS/CMIOUn/IOH/IOS3/RP0      /SYS/CMIOUn/PCIE1
/SYS/CMIOUn/IOH/IOS0/RP0      /SYS/CMIOUn/PCIE2
/SYS/CMIOUn/IOH/IOS1/RP0      /SYS/CMIOUn/PCIE3
