sun4v FMA Firmware Faults

At long last! A recent putback finally provides are more meaningful diagnosis on sun4v systems where a bug in firmware is the likely culprit.

6502089 ferg.invalid errors should be diagnosed as a fault
6502086 DBU errors should be diagnosed as HV defect/fault

Prior to these fixes, "ferg.invalid" errors would result in FMA reporting the infamous "nosub" fault (FMD-8000-0W). And a DBU error wasn't reported at all, the user experience being a mysterious system crash/reset.

Now, such errors are now respectively diagnosed to a defect.fw.generic-sparc.erpt-gen (SUN4V-8002-SP) or defect.fw.generic-sparc.addr-oob (SUN4V-8002-RA) fault.

As the cases for these errors are better understood, expect the article text on http://sun.com/msg to have more details.
