Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes:
-Fixed an isolated issue where manually run controller self-diagnostics would trigger Event 13 (Controller cache discarded due to firmware version incompatibility) on the subsequent reboot.

Enhancements:
-Enhanced Background Initialization (BGI) and Consistency Check (CC) progress to reduce performance impact when progress is saved (checkpointed).
Previous behavior:
BGI/CC progress was saved to disk every 5 minutes, this disk access triggered I/O to pause and cache flush, causing a latency increase.
New behavior (as of 25.5.8.0001):
BGI/CC progress was saved to disk every 5 minutes if an operating system/driver is not loaded.
Note: H330 controllers will keep background operations paused while in HII, or until an OS is loaded.
When the firmware detects a driver loading, BGI/CC progress will be saved every 4 hours.
When a graceful shutdown is performed, the firmware will save progress as part of the shutdown procedure.
In the event of ungraceful shutdown/power loss progress will resume from the last saved checkpoint.
Note: Progress Events remain unchanged and will be observed at the same interval.
