Ability to clear HBA port counters from port statistics without reboot

Part of ongoing monitoring, and also as troubleshooting aid after a repair is completed, it would be great to have ability to clear FC HBA port statistics.

Note: Counters referred to are the CRC errors, loss of sync, etc which can only be cleared by a node reboot.

Port statistics can be observed via livedumps, but also on command line via lsportstats command.
