Thanks, this is very helpful. I think the above means that the crash is
triggered by the following code:

sp = qla2xxx_get_qpair_sp(cmd_sp->qpair, cmd_sp->fcport,
GFP_KERNEL);

From the start of qla2xxx_get_qpair_sp():

QLA_QPAIR_MARK_BUSY(qpair, bail);

From qla_def.h:

#define QLA_QPAIR_MARK_BUSY(__qpair, __bail) do { \
atomic_inc(&__qpair->ref_count); \
mb(); \
if (__qpair->delete_in_progress) { \
atomic_dec(&__qpair->ref_count); \
__bail = 1; \
} else { \
__bail = 0; \
} \
} while (0)

One of the changes between kernel version v4.9.210 and v4.19.98 is the
following: "qla2xxx: Add multiple queue pair functionality". I think the
above information means that the cmd_sp->qpair pointer is NULL. I will
let QLogic recommend a solution.

Bart.
