Yes, it's not the best solution.

I don't see how races should be prevented. The bug is triggered in
p9_fd_cancel and in this case it's due to the status of the request
being REQ_STATUS_UNSENT but list_del(&req->req_list) is used 4 times in
trans_fd.c:

- p9_read_work()
with the lock but updating the status afterwards (brings to race)
- p9_conn_cancel()
without the lock and updating the status afterwards (brings to race)
- p9_fd_cancelled()
.. ?
-p9_fd_cancel()
with lock, run on conditional status
BOOM

So, maybe we can try to see if it's the problem of syncing the status
between different threads or if it's more but idk.

Right, I thought I had to unlock before p9_client_cb() as here:

https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/net/9p/trans_fd.c#L375

However, also locking the client mutex for the whole loop doesn't seem
to give problems. See patch below
