You can sync up what the gfp flag used here and for the alloc_skb call 
above. If you have process context, you probably want to use GFP_NOIO, 
because this could be called for reconnect for a disk in use.

If you do not have process context then you would need to use GFP_ATOMIC.

Instead of using broadcast above and in some other places and then doing 
this check, could we just use multicast groups or something else? The 
events from iscsid could be in one group and then events for uip would 
be in another?

Or is it more common to do it like this or will it break compat with 
other tools if we change it?
