Subject[PATCH v2] scsi: iscsi: Fix multiple iscsi session unbind event sent to userspace
I found an issue that kernel would send ISCSI_KEVENT_UNBIND_SESSION
for multiple times which should be fixed.

This patch introduce target_unbound in iscsi_cls_session to make
sure session would send only one ISCSI_KEVENT_UNBIND_SESSION.

But this would break issue fixed in commit 13e60d3ba287 ("scsi: iscsi:
Report unbind session event when the target has been removed"). The issue
is iscsid died for any reason after it send unbind session to kernel, once
iscsid restart again, it loss kernel's ISCSI_KEVENT_UNBIND_SESSION event.

Now kernel think iscsi_cls_session has already sent an
ISCSI_KEVENT_UNBIND_SESSION event and would not send it any more. Which
would cause userspace unable to logout. Actually the session is in
invalid state(it's target_id is INVALID), iscsid should not sync this
session in it's restart.

So we need to check session's target unbound state during iscsid restart,
if session is in unbound state, do not sync this session and perform
session teardown. It's reasonable because once a session is unbound, we
can not recover it any more(mainly because it's target id is INVALID)

Changes from V1:
- Using target_unbound rather than state to indicate session has been
