This happens occasionally during heavy iscsi login/logout test.
Sometimes we receive a netlink message for a device that has been closed. This upstream patch fixes the problem:

Detailed testing feedback is always welcomed.
Requesting/proposing for RHEL 5.5.z based on severity of the defect, patch size, and user impact.
Update for RH5.6 inbox:
With kernel-2.6.18-232.el5 and iscsi-initiator-utils-220.127.116.112-6 (uIP
0.6.2.2.1), this issue is no longer seen. It was also verified previously with kernel-2.6.18-203.el5 back in June 2000.
Thanks Broadcom. In the future, it would help me out if when informing us of successful test verification, you'd also add 'Broadcom' to the Verified field above. Thanks!
