Subject: firewire: sbp2: fix panic after rmmod with slow targets
From: Chris Boot <>
commit 0278ccd9d53e07c4e699432b2fed9de6c56f506c upstream.
If firewire-sbp2 starts a login to a target that doesn't complete ORBs
in a timely manner (and has to retry the login), and the module is
removed before the operation times out, you end up with a null-pointer
dereference and a kernel panic.
[SR: This happens because sbp2_target_get/put() do not maintain
module references. scsi_device_get/put() do, but at occasions like
Chris describes one, nobody holds a reference to an SBP-2 sdev.]
This patch cancels pending work for each unit in sbp2_remove(), which
hopefully means there are no extra references around that prevent us
from unloading. This fixes my crash.
