[ 56/79] SCSI: mpt3sas: fix for kernel panic when driver loads with HBA conected to non LUN 0 configured expander

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


From: Sreekanth Reddy <Sreekanth.Reddy@xxxxxxx>

commit b65cfedf4560af65305bd7b3b9f26c02c6fb3660 upstream.

With some enclosures when LUN 0 is not created but LUN 1 or LUN X is created
then SCSI scan procedure calls target_alloc, slave_alloc call back functions
for LUN 0 and slave_destory() for same LUN 0.

In these kind of cases within slave_destroy, pointer to scsi_target in
_sas_device structure is set to NULL, following which when slave_alloc for LUN
1 is called then starget would not be set properly for this LUN. So,
scsi_target pointer pointing to NULL value would lead to a crash later in the
discovery procedure.

To solve this issue set the sas_device's scsi_target pointer to scsi_device's
scsi_target if it is NULL earlier in slave_alloc callback function.
