[PATCH v3 1/4] qla2xxx: Warn if done() or free() are called on an already freed srb

From: Daniel Wagner
Date: Tue Sep 08 2020 - 04:15:42 EST

Emit a warning when ->done or ->free are called on an already freed
srb. There is a hidden use-after-free bug in the driver which corrupts
the srb memory pool which originates from the cleanup callbacks.

An extensive search didn't bring any lights on the real problem. The
initial fix was to set both pointers to NULL and try to catch invalid
accesses. But instead the memory corruption was gone and the driver
didn't crash. Since not all calling places check for NULL pointer, add
explicitly default handlers. With this we workaround the memory
corruption and add a debug help.
