This should have been fixed by commit 36e3cf273977 ("scsi: Avoid that SCSI
queues get stuck"). The first mainline kernel that includes this commit is
kernel v4.11.

Are you aware that the single queue block layer is on its way out and will
be removed sooner or later? Please focus your testing on scsi-mq.

Regarding the above patch: it is wrong because it will cause lockups during
path removal for other block drivers. Please drop this patch.
