Subject[PATCH] scsi: smartpqi_init: Reporting 'logical unit failure'
When this HARDWARE_ERROR/0x3e/0x1 case is triggered, the logical volume is offlined.
When reading the kernel log, the cause why the device got offlined isn't reported to the user.
This situation makes difficult for admins to estimate _why_ the volume got offlined.
Reading this part of the code makes clear this is because driver received a HARDWARE_ERROR/0x3e/0x1 which is a 'logical unit failure'.

This patch is just about reporting that fact to help admins making a relationship between this event and the offlining.
