If a xprt->xpt_flags has XPT_CLOSE & XPT_LISTENER, kernel will accept it 
first,
and svc_xprt_received(xptr) no mater xpo_accept is suceed or failed, 
then svc_delete_xprt(xprt).

I'm not sure what will happened between the svc_xprt_received and 
svc_delete_xprt, there isn't any
lock to protect it.
