I think there is another issue with 00d909a107 and ibmvscsi_tgt.

The problem is that ibmvscsi_tgt never called
target_sess_cmd_list_set_waiting. It only called
target_wait_for_sess_cmds. So before 00d909a107 there was a bug in that
driver and target_wait_for_sess_cmds never did what was intended because
sess_wait_list would always be empty.

With 00d909a107, we no longer need to call
target_sess_cmd_list_set_waiting to wait for outstanding commands, so
for ibmvscsi_tgt will now wait for commands like we wanted. However, the
commit added a WARN_ON that is hit if target_sess_cmd_list_set_waiting
is not called, so we could hit that.

So I think we need to add a target_sess_cmd_list_set_waiting call in
ibmvscsi_tgt to go along with your patch chunk above and make sure we do
not trigger the WARN_ON.
