Subject: target: Fix delayed Task Aborted Status (TAS) handling bug

commit 29f4c090079f442ea2723d292e4e64f0b6ac1f27 upstream.

This patch fixes a bug in delayed Task Aborted Status (TAS) handling,
where transport_send_task_abort() was not returning for the case
when the se_tfo->write_pending() callback indicated that last fabric
specific WRITE PDU had not yet been received.

It also adds an explicit cmd->scsi_status = SAM_STAT_TASK_ABORTED
assignment within transport_check_aborted_status() to avoid the case
where se_tfo->queue_status() is called when the SAM_STAT_TASK_ABORTED
assignment + ->queue_status() in transport_send_task_abort() does not
occur once SCF_SENT_DELAYED_TAS has been set.
