block: Free queue resources at blk_release_queue()
A kernel crash is observed when a mounted ext3/ext4 filesystem is physically removed. The problem is that blk_cleanup_queue() frees up some resources eg by calling elevator_exit(), which are not checked for in normal operation. So we should rather move these calls to the destructor function blk_release_queue() as at that point all remaining references are gone. However, in doing so we have to ensure that any externally supplied queue_lock is disconnected as the driver might free up the lock after the call of blk_cleanup_queue(), Signed-off-by: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
