LPM error description improvement

LPM validation fails with error:

Adapter fscsi2 txu is 1048576 client needs txu 4194304

=> this is bit misleading ; spent 1,5hours of googling for "fc adapter and txu parameter" Actual root cause was that max_xfer_size was the value that needed to be increased, therefore I suggest that the error message is changed:
Adapter fscsi2 txu is 1048576 client needs txu 4194304

Adapter fscsi2 max_xfer_size is 1048576 client needs max_xfer_size 4194304

then it would be clear right away which parameter needs to be modified.
