The patch:

commit 5923d64b7ab6 ("scsi: libiscsi: Drop taskqueuelock")

added an extra task->state because for

commit 6f8830f5bbab ("scsi: libiscsi: add lock around task lists to fix
list corruption regression")

we didn't know why we ended up with cmds on the list and thought it
might have been a bad target sending a response while we were still
sending the cmd. We were never able to get a target to send us a response
early, because it turns out the bug was just a race in libiscsi/
libiscsi_tcp where

1. iscsi_tcp_r2t_rsp queues a r2t to tcp_task->r2tqueue.
2. iscsi_tcp_task_xmit runs iscsi_tcp_get_curr_r2t and sees we have a r2t.
It dequeues it and iscsi_tcp_task_xmit starts to process it.
3. iscsi_tcp_r2t_rsp runs iscsi_requeue_task and puts the task on the
requeue list.
4. iscsi_tcp_task_xmit sends the data for r2t. This is the final chunk of
data, so the cmd is done.
5. target sends the response.
6. On a different CPU from #3, iscsi_complete_task processes the response.
Since there was no common lock for the list, the lists/tasks pointers are
not fully in sync, so could end up with list corruption.

Since it was just a race on our side, this patch removes the extra check
and fixes up the comments.
