SubjectA bug in scsi_alloc_target of drivers/scsi/scsi_scan.c
When debugging a race condition in scsi_remove_target of 3.12, I ran into this possible bug within scsi_alloc_target.
When an existing "struct scsi_target" is found and used, the starget just got through kzmalloc should be freed, rather than dong a "put_device(dev)".
