I think I agree with Junichi's previous point that this should live in
dm-table.c.  You don't need the mapped_device, only the associated
request_queue, so... I know I implemented something like
dm_get_md_queue() before, but obviously it never went in for whatever
reason.

Anyway, I think something like this would be ideal (I renamed to
dm_table_run_md_queue_async).  Please feel free to fold this in and
repost with v4 of your patchset (assuming you'll be fixing up patch 3
after you get Jun'ichi's feedback):
