The following dissectors create dissector tables but don't appear to use


It appears *never* to have used the dissector table.

In addition, the field in the dissector with the same name as the dissector table

        1) is a hidden field;

        2) was always being set to 0;

        3) doesn't appear to have been used for anything in the code;

and a quick look through NCITS 481-2011, Fibre Channel Protocol for SCSI, Fourth Version (FCP-4), doesn't indicate 
anything obvious that would be the "type" field in question.

I got rid of the dissector table and the field.
