2.6.31-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Kashyap, Desai <kashyap.desai(a)>

commit d7384b28afb2bf2b7be835ddc8c852bdc5e0ce1c upstream.

The driver hangs when doing `rmmod mpt2sas` if there are any
IR volumes present.The hang is due the scsi midlayer trying to access the
IR volumes after the driver releases controller resources. Perhaps when
scsi_remove_host is called,the scsi mid layer is sending some request.
This doesn't occur for bare drives becuase the driver is already reporting
those drives deleted prior to calling mpt2sas_base_detach.
To solve this issue, we need to delete the volumes as well.
