scsi_alloc_target: allocate a new or find an existing target

NAME

scsi_alloc_target - allocate a new or find an existing target

SYNOPSIS

struct scsi_target * scsi_alloc_target(struct device parent, int channel, uint id);

ARGUMENTS

parent

parent of the target (need not be a scsi host)

channel

target channel number (zero if no channels)

id

DESCRIPTION

Return an existing target if one exists, provided it hasn't already gone into STARGET_DEL state, otherwise allocate a new target.

The target is returned with an incremented reference, so the caller is responsible for both reaping and doing a last put
