In fact, the caller of blkcg_deactivate_policy() aready freeze the
queue, either from blk_cleanup_queue() or from elevator_switch().

Grab q_usage_counter in blk_conf_prep() can prevent concurrent with
blkcg_deactivate_policy(), I'm afraid will it be too much since it
will also be synchoronized with all the other freeze/unfreeze queues?

Thanks,
