SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/5] Re-order scsi_remove_host and sas_remove_host in SAS HBA LLDDs
Thanks Johannes.

@wangyijing, can you test this patchset please (specifically 3/5)? I
know that you have the modified version of libsas which you dabbled with

wangyijing already sent an RFC for fixing this issue (mentioned above),
which was a signifiagnt rewrite of some of libsas.
I am hoping that he would retry, and that community would
support/shepherd this activity, or at least say it will be accepted so
effort is not wasted.
