It looks like we have that pairing way back in blk_register_queue()
which takes a gendisk. Is there any reason we don't hold onto the
gendisk there? Eyeballing add_disk() and unlink_gendisk() seems to
confirm that gendisk lifetime spans request_queue.

Nauman and I were also wondering why blkio_group and blkio_policy_node
store a dev_t, rather than a direct pointer to gendisk. dev_t seems
more like a userspace<->kernel interface than an inside-the-kernel
