SubjectOOPS in idescsi_end_request
While burning a CD tonight I ended up taking an oops on my system. I had 
the lkcd patch applied to my 2.4.19 kernel, so I was able to look at the
oops after my system rebooted. After digging into it a little and
looking at the ide-scsi code I think I found the problem but am not
sure. How can idescsi_reset simply return SCSI_RESET_SUCCESS to the scsi
mid layer? I think what is happening is that a command times out,
idescsi_abort is called, which returns SCSI_ABORT_SNOOZE. Later on
idescsi_reset gets called, which returns SCSI_RESET_SUCCESS. At this
point the scsi mid-layer owns the scsi_cmnd and returns the failure back
up the chain. Later on, the command gets run through
idescsi_end_request, which then tries to access the scsi_cmnd structure
which is it no longer owns.

Any help is appreciated. I have a complete lkcd dump of the failure if
anyone would like more information...
