Subject: [PATCH 3.8 115/116] iscsi-target: Fix incorrect np->np_thread NULL assignment

3.8.13.27 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@...ux-iscsi.org>

commit db6077fd0b7dd41dc6ff18329cec979379071f87 upstream.

When shutting down a target there is a race condition between
iscsit_del_np() and __iscsi_target_login_thread().
The latter sets the thread pointer to NULL, and the former
tries to issue kthread_stop() on that pointer without any
synchronization.

This patch moves the np->np_thread NULL assignment into
iscsit_del_np(), after kthread_stop() has completed. It also
removes the signal_pending() + np_state check, and only
exits when kthread_should_stop() is true.
