It was a point that I really would like to ask by RFC whether we can
have backpointer to the gendisk from the request_queue.  And I'd like to
have it to simplify this routine and for future usages also.

I will restrict this one by checking GENHD_FL_UP flag from the gendisk
for the next patch.

As this patch rejects I/O from the block layer partition code, can we
have this flag in gendisk rather than request_queue ?

Thanks,
