Description (partial)

Port-channel member not removed from port-channel frame scheduling when it fails during ISSU.

When this occurs the port is down but output discards are incrementing on the interface.
fc3/1 is down (Error disabled - bit error rate too high)                        <<<<<< Port is down
    Hardware is Fibre Channel, SFP is short wave laser w/o OFC (SN)
    Port WWN is 20:81:00:2a:6a:65:5a:80
    Admin port mode is E, trunk mode is on
    snmp link state traps are enabled
    Port vsan is 1
    Receive data field Size is 2112
    Beacon is turned off
    Belongs to port-channel214

Note: In the reported case, the port that failed during ISSU was in "Error disabled" prior to the ISSU. The ISSU process itself
reinitialized the port and brought it up. However, since there was still an underlying physical link issue the port failed
quickly do to " bit error rate too high". Reference the following bug for more information on an  "Error disabled" port
being reinitialized during ISSU:
