I think the important point is: is this an actual observed bug or just
a theoretical problem?

The reason for asking is this call is controlled directly by the
ISCSI_UEVENT_DESTROY_CONN event sent by the iscsi daemon.  Obviously if
the daemon goes haywire and doesn't shut down the connection before
sending the destroy event, we may get the crash, but I would be
inclined to say fix the daemon.
