That was a mistake, fixed.

ataflop_alloc_disk() just calls blk_mq_alloc_disk() for its
allocation, and so blk_cleanup_disk() does that for us. Please
let me know if I missed anything.

Indeed, rebased, thanks for the heads up!

Thanks!

I think just setting disks[drive][type] = NULL after the
blk_cleanup_disk() fixes that issue.

I can't see what would be missing from just setting disks[drive][type] = NULL.
Can you clarify?
