3.5.7u1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust at netapp.com>

commit 4bc1e68ed6a8b59be8a79eb719be515a55c7bc68 upstream.

The call to xprt_disconnect_done() that is triggered by a successful
connection reset will trigger another automatic wakeup of all tasks
on the xprt->pending rpc_wait_queue. In particular it will cause an
early wake up of the task that called xprt_connect().

All we really want to do here is clear all the socket-specific state
flags, so we split that functionality out of xs_sock_mark_closed()
into a helper that can be called by xs_abort_connection()
