Subject: [PATCH 0/8]: blk-mq: use static_rqs to iterate busy tags

Hi Jens

As we know, there is a risk of accesing stale requests when iterate
in-flight requests with tags->rqs[] and this has been talked in following

A typical sence could be
blk_mq_get_request         blk_mq_queue_tag_busy_iter
  -> blk_mq_get_tag
                             -> bt_for_each
                               -> bt_iter
                                 -> rq = taags->rqs[]
                                 -> rq->q
  -> blk_mq_rq_ctx_init
    -> data->hctx->tags->rqs[rq->tag] = rq;

The root cause is that there is a window between set bit on tag sbitmap
and set tags->rqs[].

This patch would fix this issue by iterating requests with tags->static_rqs[]
instead of tags->rqs[] which would be changed dynamically. Moreover,
we will try to get a non-zero q_usage_counter before access hctxs and tags and
thus could avoid the race with updating nr_hw_queues, switching io scheduler
and even queue clean up which are all under a frozen and drained queue.

The 1st patch get rid of the useless of synchronize_rcu in __blk_mq_update_nr_hw_queues

The 2nd patch modify the blk_mq_queue_tag_busy_iter to use tags->static_rqs[]
instead of tags->rqs[] to iterate the busy tags.

The 3rd ~ 7th patch change the blk_mq_tagset_busy_iter to blk_mq_queue_tag_busy_iter
which is safer

The 8th patch get rid of the blk_mq_tagset_busy_iter.
