[dm-devel] [RFC PATCH 3/2] dm: bio-based device must not register elevator in sysfs



Properly clear io scheduler state from sysfs if transitioning from a
request-based table back to bio-based.  Unregister the elevator from
sysfs (removes 'iosched/') and have the 'scheduler' sysfs attribute
properly report "none" for bio-based DM.

Adjust elv_iosched_show() to return "none" if !blk_queue_stackable.
This allows the block layer to take bio-based DM into consideration.

These changes address the following (albeit obscure) corner-case:
   # dmsetup create --notable bio-based
   # echo "0 100 multipath ..." | dmsetup load bio-based
   # echo "0 100 linear ..."    | dmsetup load bio-based
   # dmsetup resume bio-based
   # ls /sys/block/dm-0/queue/
   ... iosched ...
