If the previous connection's uses iscsi_event_modify to change the
waiting epoll events of the fd,
is this possible that the second connection go into an unexpected state?
in conn_close() might uses mgmt_end_notify() to do this.

I am not sure if the epoll implementation treats two fd with the same
number as identical one...
