block: fix request_queue lifetime handling by making blk_queue_cleanup() properly shutdown
request_queue is refcounted but actually depdends on lifetime management from the queue owner - on blk_cleanup_queue(), block layer expects that there's no request passing through request_queue and no new one will. This is fundamentally broken. The queue owner (e.g. SCSI layer) doesn't have a way to know whether there are other active users before calling blk_cleanup_queue() and other users (e.g. bsg) don't have any guarantee that the queue is and would stay valid while it's holding a reference. With delay added in blk_queue_bio() before queue_lock is grabbed, the following oops can be easily triggered when a device is removed with in-flight IOs. sd 0:0:1:0: [sdb] Stopping disk ata1.01: disabled general protection fault: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP CPU 2 Modules linked in: Pid: 648, comm: test_rawio Not tainted 3.1.0-rc3-work+ #56 Bochs Bochs RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff8137d651>] [<ffffffff8137d651>] elv_rqhash_find+0x61/0x100 ...

Similar problem exists for blk-throtl. On queue cleanup, blk-throtl is shutdown whether it has requests in it or not. Depending on timing, it either oopses or throttled bios are lost putting tasks which are waiting for bio completion into eternal D state. The way it should work is having the usual clear distinction between shutdown and release. Shutdown drains all currently pending requests, marks the queue dead, and performs partial teardown of the now unnecessary part of the queue. Even after shutdown is complete, reference holders are still allowed to issue requests to the queue although they will be immmediately failed. The rest of teardown happens on release. This patch makes the following changes to make blk_queue_cleanup() behave as proper shutdown. * QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD is now set while holding both q->exit_mutex and queue_lock. * Unsynchronized DEAD check in generic_make_request_checks() removed. This couldn't make any meaningful difference as the queue could die after the check. * blk_drain_queue() updated such that it can drain all requests and is now called during cleanup. * blk_throtl updated such that it checks DEAD on grabbing queue_lock, drains all throttled bios during cleanup and free td when queue is released.
