Hi Bart,
I've tried to figure out how to deal with this crash, but I didn't
find any sensible way to go, for the following two reasons.

First, if I'm not missing anything, then I don't yet have the hardware
required to run the srp-test. So, I cannot easily reproduce this
failure. Actually, BFQ is not yet suitable, and maybe will never be
in its current design, for very high-speed hardware as InfiniBand and
NVMe devices.

Second, a NULL-pointer fault at the line you report is rather weird.
In fact, the sequence of C-code instructions executed up to that line
is:

struct bfq_data *bfqd = q->elevator->elevator_data;
...
spin_lock_irq(&bfqd->lock);
__bfq_insert_request(bfqd, rq);
/* inside the __bfq_insert_request function: */
struct bfq_queue *bfqq = RQ_BFQQ(rq), ...;
assert_spin_locked(&bfqd->lock);

So, how can the last line cause a NULL-pointer-dereference exception
on the same address, &bfqd->lock, on which spin_lock_irq(&bfqd->lock);
was happy to work to get a spin lock?

Any idea on how to proceed? If this strage bug remains hard to spot,
then, if you agree, I will go on in the meanwhile with submitting a
new version of the patch series, which addresses your other issues.

Thanks,
Paolo
