By definition the lifetime of a struct block_device is equal to the
lifetime of its corresponding inode since they both live in struct
bdev_inode. Up until the inode is destroyed it may be the target of
delayed write-back requests. Issuing write-back to a block_device
requires a lookup of the bdev backing_dev_info that is embedded in the
request_queue.

It follows that a struct request_queue must be alive as long as a
corresponding block device inode is the active target of requests.

Match the lifetimes of backing_dev_info and its usage in
inode-write-back by arranging for the bdev to take a reference against
its request_queue when the bdev is instantiated. Release the
request_queue reference when the inode is freed.
