aoe: remove vestigial request queue allocation
Before the aoe driver was an I/O request handler, it was a make_request-style block driver. Even so, there was a problem where sysfs expected a request queue to exist, so one was provided in commit 7135a71b19be ("aoe: allocate unused request_queue for sysfs"). During the transition to the request-handler style, a patch was merged that was based on a driver without the noop queue, and the noop queue remained in place after the patch was merged, even though a new functional queue was introduced by the patch, allocated through blk_init_queue. The user impact is a memory leak proportional to the number of AoE targets discovered. This patch removes the memory leak and cleans up vestiges of the old do-nothing queue from the aoeblk_gdalloc function.
