So JFTR, I was able to fix the 1 problem introduced by this patch, it's the
follwoing hunk:
@@ -3726,9 +3729,9 @@ fc_req_to_bsgjob(struct Scsi_Host *shost, struct fc_rport *rport,
        if (i->f->dd_bsg_size)
                job->dd_data = (void *)&job[1];
        spin_lock_init(&job->job_lock);
-       job->request = (struct fc_bsg_request *)req->cmd;
+       bsg_request = (struct fc_bsg_request *)req->cmd;
        job->request_len = req->cmd_len;
-       job->reply = req->sense;
+       bsg_reply = req->sense;
        job->reply_len = SCSI_SENSE_BUFFERSIZE; /* Size of sense buffer
                                                 * allocated */
        if (req->bio) {

But as fc_req_to_bsgjob() get's deleted in Patch 15/16 the problem is
re-introduced. Unfortunately the fix isn't as trivial as for 2/16 so I'm still
trying to nail it down.

Thanks,
	Johannes
