Subject[PATCH 02/10] block: reorder elevator switch sequence
Date
Elevator switch sequence first attached the new elevator, then tried
registering it (sysfs) and if that failed attached back the old
elevator. However, sysfs registration doesn't require the elevator to
be attached, so there is no reason to do the "detach, attach new,
register, maybe re-attach old" sequence. It can just do "register,
detach, attach".

* elevator_init_queue() is updated to set ->elevator_data directly and
return 0 / -errno. This allows elevator_exit() on an unattached
elevator.

* __elv_unregister_queue() which was necessary to unregister
unattached q is removed in favor of __elv_register_queue() which can
register unattached q.

* elevator_attach() becomes a single assignment and obscures more then
it helps. Dropped.

This will help cleaning up io_context handling across elevator switch.

This patch doesn't introduce visible behavior change.
