Ok, I looked into this a bit more, and while I'm still fine with the
patch I think it's only half of what we should do here.  There really
is no point in doing the first non-blocking path in blk_mq_map_request
either as bt_get itself already does the non-blocking pass, and also
runs the queue when scheduling in the later loop as well.  So to get
towards what I had in my tree we also need something like this:

Subject: blk-mq: remove non-blocking pass in blk_mq_map_request

bt_get already does a non-blocking pass as well as running the queue
when scheduling internally, no need to duplicate it.

Good point, I'll apply this one as well.

Looks good too,

Question (while we're on the subject):
Do consumers have a way to restrict blk-mq to block on
lack of tags? I'm thinking in the context of nvme-target
that can do more useful things than waiting for a tag...
