Subject[PATCH BUGFIX IMPROVEMENT 04/14] block, bfq: remove case of redirected bic from insert_request
Before commit 18e5a57d7987 ("block, bfq: postpone rq preparation to
insert or merge"), the destination queue for a request was chosen by a
different hook than the one that then inserted the request. So,
between the execution of the two hooks, the bic of the process
generating the request could happen to be redirected to a different
bfq_queue. As a consequence, the destination bfq_queue stored in the
request could be wrong. Such an event does not need to ba handled any
