Re: [802.3ae] WIS Path Block Error and Far End Path Block Error


The inclusion of the Path Block Error Count Register (2.59) was done
by (approved) comment #374 against Draft 2.1. This comment has the
correct behavior for the Path Block Error Count Register, i.e.,
increment the register by one for every received B3 octet indicating
a Path Block Error. I do not know when the typo was introduced into
the draft. We clearly missed it in previous reviews.
