Reverting commit 8ccb8cb1892b ("swim3: convert to blk-mq") resolves the

That commit added a struct blk_mq_tag_set to struct floppy_state and
initialized it with a blk_mq_init_sq_queue() call. Unfortunately, there
is a memset() in swim3_add_device() that subsequently clears the
floppy_state struct. That means fs->tag_set->ops is a NULL pointer, and
it gets dereferenced by blk_mq_free_rqs() which gets called in the
request_irq() error path. Move the memset() to fix this bug.

BTW, the request_irq() failure for the left mediabay floppy (fd1) is not
a regression. I don't know why it happens. The right media bay floppy
(fd0) works fine however.
