Ensure that all ongoing dm_mq_queue_rq() and dm_mq_requeue_request()
calls have stopped before setting the "queue stopped" flag. This
allows to remove the "queue stopped" test from dm_mq_queue_rq() and
dm_mq_requeue_request(). This patch fixes a race condition because
dm_mq_queue_rq() is called without holding the queue lock and hence
BLK_MQ_S_STOPPED can be set at any time while dm_mq_queue_rq() is
in progress. This patch prevents that the following hang occurs
sporadically when using dm-mq:

Looks good:

FYI, I wonder how many of the blk_mq_stop_hw_queues do not need
the quiesce call.  In the long run it might be better to have
blk_mq_stop_hw_queues to stop an quiesce, and have a
__blk_mq_stop_hw_queues variant to just stop.
