[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.14 25/99] scsi: lpfc: Fix possible ABBA deadlock in nvmet_xri_aborted()

[ Upstream commit 7740b615b6665e47f162e261d805f1bbbac15876 ]

The lpfc_sli4_nvmet_xri_aborted() routine takes out the abts_buf_list_lock
and traverses the buffer contexts to match the xri. Upon match, it then
takes the context lock before potentially removing the context from the
associated buffer list. This violates the lock hierarchy used elsewhere in
the driver of locking context, then the abts_buf_list_lock - thus a
possible deadlock.

Resolve by: after matching, release the abts_buf_list_lock, then take the
context lock, and if to be deleted from the list, retake the
abts_buf_list_lock, maintaining lock hierarchy. This matches same list lock
hierarchy as elsewhere in the driver
