[JB] KERN_ERR messages need to be logged irrespective of the masks.
I understand, that in some places, mask is unnecessarily passed.
I had made sure to call __beiscsi_log in some places.
Can we please keep it that way? So beiscsi_err calls dev_err directly or
is replaced with dev_err.

It's safe to assume pcidev will be valid for all beiscsi_log calls.
Will test your change on my setup before ack'ing.

Actually, we too wanted to get rid of BC_/BM_... line# way and replace
with
ABCD = error identifier.
A <category>
B <subcategory>
CD <error code>

But that will be substantial change with some testing requirements. For
now, this looks good.
