[SCSI] libfc: IO errors on link down due to cable unplug
In this case, sync IO fails with EIO(5) errors as:- "Thread:1 System call error:5 - Input/output error (::pwrite() failed)". This is due to IO time out while libfc doing link down processing to block all rports and if timed out IO was at last retry attempt then it fails to user with EIO error followed by these log messages.
