If the reason you moved scsi_free_queue into scsi_remove_device
is marking the queue dead, how about the following patch?
Do you think it's acceptable?

Jun'ichi Nomura, NEC Corporation


Add blk_kill_queue() for drivers which want to mark the queue dead early.

blk_cleanup_queue() is an interface for LLD to notify block layer
that LLD no longer needs the queue.
Since q->queue_lock may point to a structure in LLD which is freed
after blk_cleanup_queue, blk_cleanup_queue() frees subordinate structures
like elevator, which uses q->queue_lock, to avoid invalid reference.

OTOH, LLD like SCSI wants to just mark the queue dead earlier in tear
down phase.

So this patch factors out the early part of blk_cleanup_queue into
blk_kill_queue for such drivers.
