With a properly implemented eh_abort_handler the patch below should
avoid that error handler functions get invoked after scsi_remove_host()
finished. This patch needs further testing though - a similar patch has
been reverted in the beginning of 2011 (see also commit
09c9d4c9b6a2b5909ae3c6265e4cd3820b636863). So I'm not entirely sure
whether the patch below is the right approach.
