Oh my, this is as crazy as, fortunately, easy to fix. The problem is
that this is easy to fix in bfq, but increases the doubts I have
expressed in my cover letter: is it ok that, in blk-mq, the functions
of an elevator may get invoked, without control, on requests that do
not belong to that elevator?

Anyway, two requests, Mike, if you haven't had enough already:

1. Could you paste a stack trace for this OOPS, just to understand how we
get there?

2. Could you please turn that BUG_ON into:
if (!(rq->rq_flags & RQF_ELVPRIV))
and see what happens?

Thanks a lot,
