The failure to flush causes upper layer to start modifying scsi_cmnd. When the system frees up some memory, the subsequent cable pull trigger another command flush. At this point the driver access a null pointer when attempting to DMA unmap the SGL. Add a check to make sure commands are flush back on session tear down to prevent the null pointer access.
