Subject: [PATCH 1/8] blk-mq: get rid of the synchronize_rcu in __blk_mq_update_nr_hw_queues

In commit 530ca2c (blk-mq: Allow blocking queue tag iter callbacks),
we try to get a non-zero q_usage_counter to avoid access hctxs that
being modified. So the synchronize_rcu is useless and should be
removed.
