From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

The expressions start_idx - dbg_cnt is evaluated using unsigned int
arthithmetic (since these variables are unsigned ints) and hence can
never be less than zero, so the less than comparison is never true.
Re-write the expression to check for start_idx being less than dbg_cnt.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unsigned compared against 0")
Fixes: 372c187b8a70 ("scsi: lpfc: Add an internal trace log buffer")

Thanks Colin - I was about to send a patch for this. Has this fix and 
one a couple of lines further down. I will post it shortly.
