Note that this can be optimized further by adding a new helper that just
queues up work on kblockd without taking the queue lock, e.g. adding a
new

void blk_run_queue_async(struct request_queue *q)
{
	if (likely(!blk_queue_stopped(q)))
		queue_delayed_work(kblockd_workqueue, &q->delay_work, 0);
}

And replacing all

	__blk_run_queue(q, true);

callers with that, at which point they won't need the queuelock any
more.
