After an SSP initiator device transmitted a CLOSE primitive and the
CLOSE from the target device got corrupted when the attached expander
forwards the CLOSE to the initiator.  From the Initiator's point of
view, the connection still open but from the target device and the
expander point of view, the connection has been closed.  So, when the
expander sends a BROADCAST to the initiator, should the initiator drop
the BROADCAST or accept it? The BROADCAST primitive can be used as an
indirect indication of the connection is closed in the waiting for close
state.
