Great to see this finally get prepped to go in!

I would hope that the blk-mq path, even with one queue, is a perf win
over the old interface. So I'm not sure that is correct. But the bigger
win will be with more queues, of course.

Looks good to me. The most common error case is the busy-out not
stopping queues, or not restarting them at completion. But that all
looks fine.

I would, however, rename blk_mq_queue_rq(). It sounds like a core
function. blkif_queue_rq() would be more appropriate.
