I've been scratching my head on the last three instructions, but at no
avail. If I understand correctly, the
list_del_init(&rq->queue list);
removes rq from the fifo list. But, if so, I don't understand how it
could be possible that rq has not been added to the rb_tree too.

Another interpretation that I tried is that the above three lines
handle correctly the following case where rq has not been inserted at
all into deadline fifo queue and rb tree: when dd_insert_request was
executed for rq, blk_mq_sched_try_insert_merge succeeded. Yet, the
list_del_init(&rq->queue list);
does not seem to make sense.

Could you please shed some light on this for me?

Thanks,
Paolo
