Subject[PATCH 3.10 10/18] target: Fix alua_access_state attribute OOPs for un-configured devices
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@linux-iscsi.org>

commit f1453773514bb8b0bba0716301e8c8f17f8d39c7 upstream.

This patch fixes a OOPs where an attempt to write to the per-device
alua_access_state configfs attribute at:

/sys/kernel/config/target/core/$HBA/$DEV/alua/$TG_PT_GP/alua_access_state

results in an NULL pointer dereference when the backend device has not
yet been configured.

This patch adds an explicit check for DF_CONFIGURED, and fails with
-ENODEV to avoid this case.
