OK, that means that the counter manipulation code can be left out.
Skipping the queuecommand() call once device removal started is still
useful though since when not doing that scsi_remove_host() sometimes
takes much longer than expected. A call stack I obtained via echo w
>/proc/sysrq-trigger while scsi_remove_host() took longer than expected
is as follows:
