Ah. That makes sense. I've changed bio_has_queue() to be
bio_blkg_association_check(). This calls disassociate and should handle
the case a bio transfers from a request_queue device to a bio driven
device. It changes the future patches slightly as we have to remember
the css before doing the check in case we want to reassociate with the
same css.

Thanks,
Dennis
