Subject[PATCH UPDATED] block: In blk_execute_rq_nowait, init rq->end_io before checking for dead queue.
Since the queue->lock case is taken care of in the following patch:

( [PATCH 1/4]
block: Fix race on request_queue.end_io invocations)

Updated the patch with just the end_io assignment before dead queue check.

blk-exec.c: In blk_execute_rq_nowait(), if the queue is dead, call to
done() routine is not made. That will result in blk_execute_rq() stuck
in wait_for_completion(). Avoid this by initializing rq->end_io to
done() routine before we check for dead queue.
