Before checking inflight, following code stops the blkback thread,
if (ring->xenblkd) {
kthread_stop(ring->xenblkd);
wake_up(&ring->shutdown_wq);
}
This patch allows thread of every queue has the chance to get stopped.
Otherwise, only thread of queue before(including) first busy one get
stopped, threads of remaining queue will still run, and these blkthread
and corresponding loop device will linger forever even after guest is
destroyed.

Thanks
Annie
