> Currently, FDIR is turned off when FCoE is enabled under the assumption that
> FCoE is always enabled with DCB being turned on. However, FDIR does not have
> to be turned off all the time when FCoE is enabled since FCoE can be enabled
> without DCB being turned on, e.g., use link pause only. This patch makes sure
> that when DCB is turned on or off, FDIR is turned on or off correspondingly;
> and when FCoE is enabled, it does not disable FDIR, rather, it will have FDIR
> set up properly so FCoE and FDIR can coexist regardless of DCB being on or off.
