The patch looks ok to me, but you've basically selected the least
interesting file possible. No wonder people can't seem to care.

Also, this is just ugly as hell, and doesn't help anything:

+ int (*eh_abort_handler)(struct scsi_cmnd *) =
+ scmd->device->host->hostt->eh_abort_handler;

since the compiler will have optimized that double access away anyway
(no writes in between). So you could have made it about a thousand
times more readable with no downside by doing

struct scsi_host_template *hostt = scmd->device->host->hostt;

if (!hostt->eh_abort_handler)
return FAILED;
return hostt->eh_abort_handler(scmd);
instead. Look ma, no long lines.

Rule of thumb: if you need more than one line for an expression or
variable definition, you're doing something wrong.
