Subject[PATCH 3.10 061/123] target: Fix queue full status NULL pointer for SCF_TRANSPORT_TASK_SENSE
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Quinn Tran <>

commit 082f58ac4a48d3f5cb4597232cb2ac6823a96f43 upstream.

During temporary resource starvation at lower transport layer, command
is placed on queue full retry path, which expose this problem. The TCM
queue full handling of SCF_TRANSPORT_TASK_SENSE currently sends the same
cmd twice to lower layer. The 1st time led to cmd normal free path.
The 2nd time cause Null pointer access.

This regression bug was originally introduced v3.1-rc code in the
following commit:

commit e057f53308a5f071556ee80586b99ee755bf07f5
