Subject[PATCH 32/91] libsas: remove expander from dev list on error
2.6.27-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

commit 5911e963d3718e306bcac387b83e259aa4228896 upstream.

If expander discovery fails (sas_discover_expander()), remove the
expander from the port device list (sas_ex_discover_expander()),
before freeing it. Else the list is corrupted and, e.g., when we
attempt to send SMP commands to other devices, the kernel oopses.
