Question QLA2312 Topology Setting

I have 2 HP DL580's with dual QLA2312 cards attached to an HP MSA1000 SAN with 2 built-in Brocade 8-port switches. However, when the driver loads, it is connecting to the switches as an FL_PORT, rather than an F_Port. It is my understanding that a loop configuration is designed for hubs and F_PORT or N_PORT is more for switches.

My question is: How do I tell the qla driver to connect as an F_PORT rather than an FL_PORT? -or- Do I need to configure the switch port to be an F_PORT and then it will be properly detected by the driver? I'm not sure how the driver determines the topology, i.e. is it set or detected...

Here is my dmesg output:

scsi(0) qla2x00_isr MBA_PORT_UPDATE ignored
scsi(1): LIP occurred.
scsi(1): LOOP UP detected.
