SubjectRe: [PATCH 01/12] libiscsi: Convert to host_lock less w/ interrupts disabled internally

I think this patch is buggy. Before, iscsi_queuecommand_lck is called with
interrupts disabled. Now, it's called with interrupts disabled. Elsewhere,
session->lock is acquired with bh's disabled:

void iscsi_put_task(struct iscsi_task *task)
{
struct iscsi_session *session = task->conn->session;
spin_lock_bh(&session->lock);

So I think you need to convert the
spin_lock(&session->lock);
in iscsi_queuecommand_lck to at least a spin_lock_bh, and possibly
a spin_lock_irq -- it's not clear to me whether it needs to exclude
against interrupt context, or only BH context. In some places, it's
taken with spin_lock_irqsave().

I'd play it safe and use _irq, but someone more confident with this code
might choose to only use _bh.
