I don't see you deleting anyting from the list in this loop. Why do you need
to use list_for_each_safe? That won't protect you if someone else is messing
with the list.

Would it be better here to loop through all the sections and ensure they
are in the proper state first before starting to change the state of any
of them? Then you could easily return -EINVAL if one or more is in
the incorrect state and wouldn't need to the code below.

I don't think there is sufficient protection for this list. Don't we
need to be holding a lock of some sort when adding/deleting/iterating
through this list?
