Really not seeing the QUEUE_FLAG I added as "magic", and I think it
useful to have a bit set in the queue that lets us know this variant of
queue registration was used (when debugging in "crash" or something,
avoids needing to mentally know that DM or some other driver uses it).

But if we did do what you're suggesting (see below), we're left with 2
functions that have similar names (leaving block core consumers
wondering which to use).  So I think it best to rename blk_add_disk to
blk_add_disk_no_queue_reg.

I'll run with that and take a look at your other review point (should we
just use test_and_set_bit in del_gendisk).  And then post v4 after
testing.

Thanks,
Mike
