Whoops, missed this comment in _scsih_block_io_device() from Sreekanth's
earlier reply.

Here's the updated incremental patch atop target-pending/for-next-merge
to use the protected callers for both cases.

Please review + ACK ASAP.

Thank you,

Subject: [PATCH] mpt3sas: Fix unprotected list lookup in v4.3-rc0 changes

This patch adds the missing mpt3sas_get_sdev_by_addr() protected
lookup usage in mpt3sas_transport_port_add() to avoid a NULL pointer
dereference when &ioc->sas_device_list or &ioc->sas_device_init_list
changes from below without a proper sas_device_get(sas_device)
reference held.

Also, use the protected mpt3sas_get_sdev_by_handle() lookup within
_scsih_block_io_device() as well.
