I like how this clearly splits out request-based DM queue initialization.

This blk_queue_make_request() is redundant as it was already established
in alloc_dev().  The fact that its behavior is now altered as a result
of the md->saved_make_request_fn assignment doesn't change the fact that
the queue will be using dm_request().  Am I missing something?

Also, I think the code should be cleaned up as follows:
