Hi Vivek,

I triggered another kernel panic when testing. When moving a task to another
cgroup, the corresponding iog may not be setup properly all the time. "iog"
might be NULL here. io_ioq_move() receives a NULL iog, kernel crash.

Consider the following piece of code:

941 int elv_set_request(struct request_queue *q, struct request *rq, gfp_t gfp_mask)
942 {
943 struct elevator_queue *e = q->elevator;
944
945 elv_fq_set_request_io_group(q, rq);

-->task moving to a new group is happenning here.

946
947 /*
948 * Optimization for noop, deadline and AS which maintain only single
949 * ioq per io group
950 */
951 if (elv_iosched_single_ioq(e))
952 return elv_fq_set_request_ioq(q, rq, gfp_mask);
953
954 if (e->ops->elevator_set_req_fn)
955 return e->ops->elevator_set_req_fn(q, rq, gfp_mask);

cfq_set_request() will finally call io_ioq_move(), but the iog is NULL, beacause the iogs in the
hierarchy are not built yet. So kernel crashes.

956
957 rq->elevator_private = NULL;
958 return 0;
959 }
