Subject: [PATCH v2 10/17] ibmvfc: advertise client support for using hardware channels

Previous patches have plumbed the necessary Sub-CRQ interface and
channel negotiation MADs to fully channelized hardware queues.

Advertise client support via NPIV Login capability
IBMVFC_CAN_USE_CHANNELS when the client bits have MQ enabled via
vhost->mq_enabled, or when channels were already in use during a
subsequent NPIV Login. The later is required because channel support is
only renegotiated after a CRQ pair is broken. Simple NPIV Logout/Logins
require the client to continue to advertise the channel capability until
the CRQ pair between the client is broken.
