Subject: [PATCH v3] scsi: smartpqi_init: Reporting 'logical unit failure'

When the HARDWARE_ERROR/0x3e/0x1 case is triggered, the logical volume is offlined.
When reading the kernel log, the reason why the device got offlined isn't reported to the user.
This situation makes difficult for admins to estimate the root cause of the issue they analize.

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 the reason behind the offlining to ease the analyse.
