Description

(Disclosure: I was originally part of the product team for the product in question.)

The Sun StorEdge T3, and T4 products (code named "Purple") were dual pathed FCAL arrays. The arrays were End-of-Support by Sun back in 2012. They stopped shipping them in the early 2000's. Its incredibly unlikely that anyone still has any of these units, and frankly any of the spinning mechanical drives in these arrays are long past their intended lifetimes.

We should remove the module.

This is mostly just removal of the module, but while here we should also remove some special handling in the sd.c driver. Its a small cleanup, but every bit helps.
