The extra ref from cfq_link_cfqq_cfqg() for oom_cfqq; otherwise, we
need an extra cfq_put() in cfq_exit_queue(). I thought I wrote
comment about that somewhere. Hmmm.... apparently not. The thing is
that oom_cfqq doesn't go through proper cfqq destruction and thus
never puts the extra ref to root cfqg.
