Err, I dropped a hunk in the process... here is the refreshed patch
inlined.  Figured I'd save you the busy-work for when you get V2
together.

Hopefully V2 will address my questions/feedback.

Export a way to delay initializing a request_queue after allocating it. This
is needed by device-mapper devices, as they create the queue on device
creation time, but they decide whether it would use the elevator and requests
only after first successful table load. Only request-based dm-devices use the
elevator and requests. Without this either one needs to initialize and free
the mempool and elevator, if it was a bio-based dm-device or leave it
allocated, as it is currently done.
