otherwise locked up. The thread doing the filesystem creation (for
example: mke2fs -j) cannot be killed, even with kill -9.
I received a kernel oops, which is at the bottom with some other
Kernel version: Tested with Fedora's 184.108.40.206-124 (Fedora 13) as well
as linux-next, as well as a modified version of linus' tree.

Could you also do
echo 1 > /sys/module/libiscsi_tcp/parameters/debug_libiscsi_tcp
echo 1 > /sys/module/iscsi_tcp/parameters/debug_iscsi_tcp
