Make changes to prevent scsi reserve errors from being logged at reboot

Customer has SVC attached to Power system; if AIX LPAR is rebooted, the reboot completes before the 20 second time needed for SVC to release the rootvg scsi reserve, resulting in scsi reserve error being logged to HMC and LPAR that needs to be investigated. The error is overcome and the LPAR reboots, but customer does not want to have to decide which scsi reserve errors are real and need to be investigated and which ones are OK to ignore.
