That's only 50% of what I've meant:

static inline struct scsi_cmnd *
_scsih_scsi_lookup_get_clear(struct MPT3SAS_ADAPTER *ioc, u16 smid)
{
	unsigned long flags;
	struct scsi_cmnd *scmnd;

	spin_lock_irqsave(&ioc->scsi_lookup_lock, flags);
-	scmd = ioc->scsi_lookup[smid - 1].scmd;
-	ioc->scsi_lookup[smid - 1].scmd = NULL;
+	scmnd = __scsih_scsi_lookup_get_clear(ioc, smid);
	spin_unlock_irqrestore(&ioc->scsi_lookup_lock, flags);

	return scmnd;
}


[...]

Byte,
	Johannes
