The Xen usage also looks really weird. Maybe Juergen can explain what
scsiback_add_translation_entry is trying to do? Note that I think both
sbp and xen really should be working on node ACLs. Right now both
of them oly supported autogenerated ACLs, so in practice it doesn't
matter, but keeping the data structure use clean is a goal on it's own.

How does the removal of tis function including it's only caller
in the iscsi code ïit into the picture? The only explanation I could come
up with is that it wasn't even needed before, in which case it should be
dropped in a seaprate, properly documented patch.

Just use kfree_rcu here.
