Hi,

I found this by source code reading.
It is true that "blk_mq_stop_hw_queue" does not guarantee any dispatch will be blocked,
but I think "blk_mq_stop_hw_queue" and "__blk_mq_delay_run_hw_queue" have a reverse
order in the processing logic of "BLK_MQ_S_STOPPED".
Part of the race problem can be solved only by adjusting the judgment order, so it is still valuable.

Thanks
