block: fix q->flush_rq NULL pointer crash on dm-mpath flush
Commit 1874198 ("blk-mq: rework flush sequencing logic") switched ->flush_rq from being an embedded member of the request_queue structure to being dynamically allocated in blk_init_queue_node(). Request-based DM multipath doesn't use blk_init_queue_node(), instead it uses blk_alloc_queue_node() + blk_init_allocated_queue(). Because commit 1874198 placed the dynamic allocation of ->flush_rq in blk_init_queue_node() any flush issued to a dm-mpath device would crash with a NULL pointer, e.g.: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null) IP: [<ffffffff8125037e>] blk_rq_init+0x1e/0xb0 PGD bb3c7067 PUD bb01d067 PMD 0 Oops: 0002 [#1] SMP ...
