This patch seems to resolve the block/scsi null-ptr de-references in
our libsas/isci environment, we have yet to try James' alternative
[1]. Do we potentially need both?

Commit 86cbfb56 moved scsi_free_queue to __scsi_remove_device() but it
seems only the "sdev->request_queue->queuedata = NULL" needed to be
moved?

The conversation appeared to be awaiting test results...
