I've tested with your suggestion (reverting the move of scsi_free_queue)
and it works like a charm. I did not get any oops after that. I tested
with a multipath setup on top of two iscsi targets. Using dd after
logging out of some of one of the iscsi targets would trigger the oops.
With this patch, it could not be triggered anymore.

Best regards,
Cascardo.
