The code disassembles to

0: 8d 01 lea (%rcx),%eax
2: e8 6c b1 fb ff callq 0xfffffffffffbb173
7: 48 ff 05 8b 32 8d 01 incq 0x18d328b(%rip) # 0x18d3299
e: 48 ff 05 8c 32 8d 01 incq 0x18d328c(%rip) # 0x18d32a1
15: 48 ff 05 95 32 8d 01 incq 0x18d3295(%rip) # 0x18d32b1
1c: e9 e3 03 00 00 jmpq 0x404
21: 48 ff 05 81 32 8d 01 incq 0x18d3281(%rip) # 0x18d32a9
28:* 48 81 3b 40 5f 26 82 cmpq $0xffffffff82265f40,(%rbx) <--

2f: 75 07 jne 0x38
31: 48 ff 05 81 32 8d 01 incq 0x18d3281(%rip) # 0x18d32b9
38: 83 fe 01 cmp $0x1,%esi
and %rbx (and %rdi) contains the poison pattern for free'd memory (0x6b6b6b..).

.. and that's likely not a very commonly tested case.

The target_core_exit_configfs() code looks _very_ broken. It looks
broken for two reasons:

- it's very different from the cleanup code for the "failed to init"
case in target_core_init_configfs, which does a lot less (see the
"out:" code there)

- it seems to do a lot of manual freeing of the
"su_group.default_groups" stuff etc, which is all internal configfs
stuff, and seems to be used by the register/unregister phases.

So somebody show knows configfs better should really check that
cleanup, but it looks like target-core is just totally broken for the
rmmod case.

Added more people to the cc. Nicholas, Joel and James. Guys: please
check the insmod/rmmod case with
(a) spinlock debugging and lockdep enabled
(b) SLUB poisoning enabled.
ie all of these should be on:

CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y
CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING=y
CONFIG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK_SLEEP=y
CONFIG_STACKTRACE=y

and you might also want to add CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC to the mix.
