Portcfgfillword - Mode 3 for 8GB HBA

I just upgraded one of my switch with v7.1.1. I noticed that "Portcfgfillword" command is not supported anymore. I used to run this command before I upgraded to make sure the mode was set to 3 when I used 8GB HBA cards. I could not find any resource and any CLI or manuel reference guide for version 7.1.1. In version 7.0, we still have to run this command. I want to confirm whether this command is not support anymore on v7.1.1 and it is auto set to mode 3 when we attach 8GB HBA. Please let me know. Thanks.

It still mentioned in the FOS cmd ref guide v7.1 http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/product_manuals/B_SAN/FOS_CmdRef_v710.pdf  but does apply only to 8Gbps asics.

Perhaps a portcfgshow will tell you if it's set automatically
