Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.15 093/124] block, bfq: put async queues for root bfq groups too
From: Paolo Valente <>

[ Upstream commit 52257ffbfcaf58d247b13fb148e27ed17c33e526 ]

For each pair [device for which bfq is selected as I/O scheduler,
group in blkio/io], bfq maintains a corresponding bfq group. Each such
bfq group contains a set of async queues, with each async queue
created on demand, i.e., when some I/O request arrives for it. On
creation, an async queue gets an extra reference, to make sure that
the queue is not freed as long as its bfq group exists. Accordingly,
to allow the queue to be freed after the group exited, this extra
reference must released on group exit.

The above holds also for a bfq root group, i.e., for the bfq group
corresponding to the root blkio/io root for a given device. Yet, by
mistake, the references to the existing async queues of a root group
are not released when the latter exits. This causes a memory leak when
the instance of bfq for a given device exits. In a similar vein,
bfqg_stats_xfer_dead is not executed for a root group.

This commit fixes bfq_pd_offline so that the latter executes the above
missing operations for a root group too.
