Subject[GIT PULL] Two fixups for the block IO merge
Hi Linus,

An embarassing bug made the block IO merge a bit less enjoyable for some
people than it should have.

- The oops problem (with CFQ), or potential corruption (with noop) due
to a bad insertion type for some requests.

- A warning spew on virt_io using blk_stop_queue() inside it's callback.

Please pull these two fixes, so hopefully we can put this behind us.
Thanks a lot to the people involved with fixing the first issue.
