Yeah, we can't abort I/O commands in progress.

The kernel might reuse the same fd but tgtd allocates a new iscsi_connection
strcuture. The fd is binded to the new structure. So commands belonging to the
previous connection don't affect the new conneciton. Do I miss something?

Closing a fd in ep_release() is fine by me but I'm not sure that it fixes
