Patch ID: VRTSvxfen-7.4.1.2200

* 3986554 (Tracking ID: 3986553)

SYMPTOM:
After the phase 1 of a rolling upgrade completes, a CoordPoint resource goes into the FAULTED state.

DESCRIPTION:
This issue occurs when the CoordPoint agent is upgraded to 7.4.1 from any earlier version using a rolling upgrade. A field was added to the VXFEN driver structure due to which the client, VXFEN_IOC_GET_COORD IOCTL, fails.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix addresses the issue by providing a global field to serve the purpose instead of adding a field to the VXFEN driver structure.
