OK.

Cc'ing Tejun Heo

For the back trace, I think __blk_run_queue() is the ligament.
As from the comment of __blk_run_queue(), it must be called
with the queue lock and interrupts disabled. And the lock
is hold through spin_lock_irqsave(q->queue_lock, flags); at
blk_end_bidi_request().

But in do_ide_request(), it realse the lock through
spin_unlock_irq(q->queue_lock); which make the state
inconsistent.

BTW, do_ide_request() also say it might_sleep(), this warning
also trigger in Daniel's log.

Thanks,
Yong
