For the record, this is not a problem with the upstream commit (not
saying you thought that or not, I just want to be clear).

Looks like commit 4c47efc140fa ("scsi: lpfc: Move SCSI and NVME Stats to
hardware queue structures") "resolved" this by not making it an issue in
the first place. I think the simpler fix is this.

Thanks for pointing it out!
