Subjectre: scsi: iscsi: Drop suspend calls from ep_disconnect

Static analysis on linux-next with Coverity has found an issue in
drivers/scsi/qedi/qedi_iscsi.c with the following commit:

commit 27e986289e739d08c1a4861cc3d3ec9b3a60845e

scsi: iscsi: Drop suspend calls from ep_disconnect

The analysis is as follows:

1662 void qedi_clear_session_ctx(struct iscsi_cls_session *cls_sess)
1663 {
1664 struct iscsi_session *session = cls_sess->dd_data;
1665 struct iscsi_conn *conn = session->leadconn;

deref_ptr: Directly dereferencing pointer conn.

1666 struct qedi_conn *qedi_conn = conn->dd_data;
1668 if (iscsi_is_session_online(cls_sess)) {
Dereference before null check (REVERSE_INULL)
check_after_deref: Null-checking conn suggests that it may be null,
but it has already been dereferenced on all paths leading to the check.

1669 if (conn)
1670 iscsi_suspend_queue(conn);
1671 qedi_ep_disconnect(qedi_conn->iscsi_ep);
1672 }

Pointer conn is being checked to see if it is null, but earlier it has
been dereferenced on the assignment of qedi_conn. So either conn will
be null at some point and a null ptr dereference occurs when qedi_conn
is assigned, or conn can never be null and the conn null check is
redundant and can be removed.
