Any primitive may occur at almost any time but only the ones relevant to
the current state are examined. All others are ignored. The statement about
this for SL is in 7.12.1 as:
'Unless otherwise stated within the state description, all running
disparity errors, illegal characters, and unexpected primitives (i.e., any
primitive not described in the description of the SL state) received within
any SL state shall be ignored and idle dwords shall be transmitted.'
Breaks are not ignored. Anytime any SL state receives a BREAK it will
transition to the SL6:BREAK state. From SAS rev3c
'126.96.36.199 Transition SL3:Connected to SL6:Break
This transition shall occur if a BREAK Received parameter is received and
after this state has sent a Connection Closed (Break Received) confirmation
to the port layer.'

What primiitives are allowed between SOF and EOF? My interpretation is as
I'm not sure about BREAK. It seems this would not be allowed.
Please confirm or correct the above list.
If a primitive not allowed between SOF and EOF does show up, what is the
Discard the frame, NAK the frame, ignore the primitive, process the
