I meant make the tcm_qla2xxx implementation of shutdown_session
and close_session closer to tcm_loop, which has:

static int tcm_loop_shutdown_session(struct se_session *se_sess)
        return 0;

static void tcm_loop_close_session(struct se_session *se_sess)

When we remove ACLs in tcm_qla2xxx, we don't actually
kick out any initiators that may be logged into our FC ports,
so it's not clear to me why we try to shut down sessions.

The conditions that are true in qla_tgt_fc_port_added() are
true no matter what ACLs we have so it doesn't seem like
a good idea to make our session database out of sync with
the FW state when removing ACLs.
