  ---Problem Description---
  When FC login times out, cxlflash resets the link. As part of reset, when the link comes back up, cxlflash driver calls scsi_scan_host() and in case previous scan is still running  we get the message and stack dump on console/logs.

  scsi host2: scsi_prep_async_scan called twice
