I agree that your patch should solve the race. With the current BFQ's
has_work() it's a bit of a disaster though. It will essentially put
blk-mq into a busy-wait loop (with a 3 ms delay between each poll)
while BFQ's has_work() says "true" but BFQ doesn't dispatch anything.

...so I guess the question that still needs to be answered: does
has_work() need to be exact? If so then we need the patch you propose
plus one to BFQ. If not, we should continue along the lines of my
patch.
