#874: Handling Modbus exception FC
 Reporter:  dina        |       Type:  Task
   Status:  new         |   Priority:  Normal
Milestone:              |  Component:  Bro
  Version:  git/master  |   Keywords:  Modbus analyser, exception , fc
 event modbus_exception is a general exception and the 'fc' that is
 returned here is 'original_request_fc'+128. This means if I send a request
 with Fc=3 and something goes bad,I will get this exception with fc=131. I
 thought it would be useful to immediately subtract this value and show in
 the log exact Fc where the exception was triggered.  A small function for
 this I put before in modbus/utils.bro (on my branch), but its not in the
 topic/robin/modbus-merge branch.
 I suggest to implement this functionality.
