SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/9p/trans_fd.c: fix double list_del() and race in access

Please see comment about locking.

As for list_del to list_del_init, it feels a little wrong to me, but I
don't have a better idea so let's go with that.
Do you know what happened to trigger this? one thread running
p9_conn_cancel then the other thread doing p9_fd_cancel ?

Just locking around one item if you're afraid it might change won't be
enough - list_for_each_entry_safe is only "safe" from removing the
current element from the list yourself, not from other threads messing
with it, so you'd need to lock around the whole loop if that's what
you're protecting against.

(Also, since I've taken the other patchs to change spin locks on
client->lock to spin_lock instead of spin_lock_irqsave, please use that
function for new locking of that variable - in general just basing your
patchs off linux-next's master branch is a good idea.)
