[PATCH 3.16 115/370] scsi: avoid a permanent stop of the scsi device's request queue

3.16.42-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Wei Fang <fangwei1@xxxxxxxxxx>
commit d2a145252c52792bc59e4767b486b26c430af4bb upstream.
A race between scanning and fc_remote_port_delete() may result in a
permanent stop if the device gets blocked before scsi_sysfs_add_sdev()
and unblocked after. The reason is that blocking a device sets both the
SDEV_BLOCKED state and the QUEUE_FLAG_STOPPED. However,
scsi_sysfs_add_sdev() unconditionally sets SDEV_RUNNING which causes the
device to be ignored by scsi_target_unblock() and thus never have its
QUEUE_FLAG_STOPPED cleared leading to a device which is apparently
running but has a stopped queue.
We actually have two places where SDEV_RUNNING is set: once in
scsi_add_lun() which respects the blocked flag and once in
scsi_sysfs_add_sdev() which doesn't. Since the second set is entirely
spurious, simply remove it to fix the problem.
