Subject[PATCH 5.4 60/80] scsi: qla2xxx: Ignore NULL pointer in tcm_qla2xxx_free_mcmd
From: Roman Bolshakov <>

commit f2c9ee54a56995a293efef290657d8a1d80e14ab upstream.

If ABTS cannot be completed in target mode, the driver attempts to free
related management command and crashes:

The crash can be triggered by ACL deletion when there's active I/O.

During ACL deletion, qla2xxx performs implicit LOGO that's invisible for
the initiator. Only the driver and firmware are aware of the logout.
Therefore the initiator continues to send SCSI commands and the target
always responds with SAM STATUS BUSY as it can't find the session.

The command times out after a while and initiator invokes ABORT TASK TMF
for the command. The TMF is mapped to ABTS-LS in FCP. The target can't find
session for S_ID originating ABTS-LS so it never allocates mcmd. And since
N_Port handle was deleted after LOGO, it is no longer valid and ABTS
Response IOCB is returned from firmware with status 31. Then free_mcmd is
invoked on NULL pointer and the kernel crashes.
