cciss: Ignore stale commands after reboot
When doing an unexpected shutdown like kexec the cciss firmware might still have some commands in flight, which it is trying to complete. The driver is doing it's best on resetting the HBA, but sadly there's a firmware issue causing the firmware _not_ to abort or drop old commands. So the firmware will send us commands which we haven't accounted for, causing the driver to panic. With this patch we're just ignoring these commands as there is nothing we could be doing with them anyway.
