I think problem might be that we have destroyed policy data (cfqg also)
early and later we access it.

So we call following.

elevator_switch()
blkg_destroy_all()
update_root_blkg();

Here update_root_blkg() will free up the blkg->pd for cfq.

And later we call.

elevator_exit()
cfq_exit_queue()
cfq_put_async_queues()
cfq_put_queue()
blkg_put(cfqg_to_blkg(cfqg)); <------ trying to reach blkg through
already freed policy data.

So we should not free up root group policy data till old elevator has
exited.

Thanks
