Thanks for the quick response.

So Calvin's mpt2sas series has been merged into scsi.git/for-next.

Since this series is AFAICT functionally identical to Calvin's changes,
I assume JEJB will be merging it up for v4.3-rc1 soon too.

Also, we're probably not the only ones hitting this class of OOPsen, so
it will certainly need to be picked up for stable at some point, and any
further regressions will need to be addressed.

Please keep the list posted of your testing progress.

For reference, here are prerequisites need to apply atop v3.14.y:

4dc06fd mpt3sas: delay scsi_add_host call to work with scsi-mq
35b6236 mpt3sas: combine fw_event_work and its event_data
62c4da4 mpt3sas: correct scsi_{target,device} hostdata allocation
