Subject[PATCH] block: systemace: Fix refcount underflow in error handler
Date
Since commit 29dee3c03abc ("locking/refcounts: Out-of-line everything"),
the following runtime warning is seen if xsysace fails to initialize.
The commit only exposes the problem.

refcount_t: underflow; use-after-free.

Debugging shows that blk_put_queue() is called twice during error
handling, once from disk_release() (called from put_disk) and once
from blk_cleanup_queue(). disk_release() only calls blk_put_queue()
if the queue pointer is initialized, so moving the initialization of
gd->queue avoids the problem.
