commit b292cf9ce70d221c3f04ff62db5ab13d9a249ca8 upstream.

There're some warnings of "nfsd: peername failed (err 107)!"
socket error -107 means Transport endpoint is not connected.
This warning message was outputed by svc_tcp_accept() [net/sunrpc/svcsock.c],
when kernel_getpeername returns -107. This means socket might be CLOSED.

And svc_tcp_accept was called by svc_recv() [net/sunrpc/svc_xprt.c]

if (test_bit(XPT_LISTENER, &xprt->xpt_flags)) {
newxpt = xprt->xpt_ops->xpo_accept(xprt);

So this might happen when xprt->xpt_flags has both XPT_LISTENER and XPT_CLOSE.

Let's take a look at commit b0401d72, this commit has moved the close
processing after do recvfrom method, but this commit also introduces this
warnings, if the xpt_flags has both XPT_LISTENER and XPT_CLOSED, we should
close it, not accpet then close.
