From: Lee Duncan <lduncan@suse.com>

iSCSI NOPs are sometimes "lost", mistakenly sent to the
user-land iscsid daemon instead of handled in the kernel,
as they should be, resulting in a message from the daemon like:

> iscsid: Got nop in, but kernel supports nop handling.

This can occur because of the new forward- and back-locks,
and the fact that an iSCSI NOP response can occur before
processing of the NOP send is complete. This can result
in "conn->ping_task" being NULL in iscsi_nop_out_rsp(),
when the pointer is actually in the process of being set.

To work around this, we add a new state to the "ping_task"
pointer. In addition to NULL (not assigned) and a pointer
(assigned), we add the state "being set", which is signaled
with an INVALID pointer (using "-1").
