Nice catch. :)

With target_wait_for_sess_cmd() usage pre 00d909a107 doing a list-splice
in target_sess_cmd_list_set_waiting(), this particular usage in
ibmvscsi_tgt has always been list_empty(&sess->sess_wait_list) = true
(eg: no se_cmd I/O is quiesced, because no se_cmd in sess_wait_list)
since commit 712db3eb in 4.9.y code.

That said, ibmvscsi_tgt usage is very similar to vhost/scsi in the
respect individual /sys/kernel/config/target/$FABRIC/$WWN/$TPGT/
endpoints used by VMs do not remove their I_T nexus while the VM is
active.

So AFAICT, ibmvscsi_tgt doesn't strictly need target_sess_wait_for_cmd()
at all if this is true.
