[PATCH] scsi: storvsc: Fix a race in sub-channel creation that can cause panic

From: Dexuan Cui <decui at microsoft.com>

We can concurrently try to open the same sub-channel from 2 paths:

path #1: vmbus_onoffer() -> vmbus_process_offer() -> handle_sc_creation().
path #2: storvsc_probe() -> storvsc_connect_to_vsp() ->
	 -> storvsc_channel_init() -> handle_multichannel_storage() ->
	 -> vmbus_are_subchannels_present() -> handle_sc_creation().

They conflict with each other, but it was not an issue before the recent
commit ae6935ed7d42 ("vmbus: split ring buffer allocation from open"),
because at the beginning of vmbus_open() we checked newchannel->state so
only one path could succeed, and the other would return with -EINVAL.

After ae6935ed7d42, the failing path frees the channel's ringbuffer by
vmbus_free_ring(), and this causes a panic later.

Commit ae6935ed7d42 itself is good, and it just reveals the longstanding
race. We can resolve the issue by removing path #2, i.e. removing the
second vmbus_are_subchannels_present() in handle_multichannel_storage().

BTW, the comment "Check to see if sub-channels have already been created"
in handle_multichannel_storage() is incorrect: when we unload the driver,
we first close the sub-channel(s) and then close the primary channel, next
the host sends rescind-offer message(s) so primary->sc_list will become
empty. This means the first vmbus_are_subchannels_present() in
handle_multichannel_storage() is never useful.

Fixes: ae6935ed7d42 ("vmbus: split ring buffer allocation from open")
