[SCSI] bnx2i: Fixed kernel panic caused by unprotected task->sc->request deref
During session recovery, the conn_stop call will trigger a flush to all outstanding SCSI cmds in the xmit queue. This will set all outstanding task->sc to NULL prior to the session_teardown call which frees the task memory. In the bnx2i SCSI response processing path, only the task was being checked for NULL under the session lock before the task->sc->request dereferencing. If there are outstanding SCSI cmd responses pending for process, the following kernel panic can be exposed where task->sc was found to be NULL. Call Trace: [ 69.720205] [<ffffffffa040d0d0>] bnx2i_process_new_cqes+0x290/0x3c0 [bnx2i] [ 69.804289] [<ffffffffa040d233>] bnx2i_fastpath_notification+0x33/0xa0 [bnx2 i] [ 69.891490] [<ffffffffa040d37b>] bnx2i_indicate_kcqe+0xdb/0x330 [bnx2i] [ 69.971427] [<ffffffffa03eac5e>] service_kcqes+0x16e/0x1d0 [cnic] [ 70.045132] [<ffffffffa03eacea>] cnic_service_bnx2x_kcq+0x2a/0x50 [cnic] [ 70.126105] [<ffffffffa03ead53>] cnic_service_bnx2x_bh+0x43/0x140 [cnic] [ 70.207081] [<ffffffff81060676>] tasklet_action+0x66/0x110 [ 70.273521] [<ffffffff8106025f>] __do_softirq+0xef/0x220 [ 70.337887] [<ffffffff81447ebc>] call_softirq+0x1c/0x30 This patch adds the !task->sc check and also protects the sc dereferencing under the session lock.
