There is a discrepancy between 7.15, XL state machine, and Annex G, Expander
device handling of connections.
In 7.15.5 and 7.15.6, the XL2 and XL3 states repeatedly send Transmit Idle Dword
messages to the XL transmitter until the first ECR confirmation is received.
However, G.2, G.3, G.5, G.6, G.7, and G.12 show that the Phy[X] transmitter
continuously sends AIP (NORMAL) during this period. Note this also occurs with
Phy[Y] in G.6 and G.7.
Will someone involved in this area please review?
