Looks I was wrong, and the store is from queue_attr_store() instead of
elv_attr_store().

I can reproduce the issue and this patch can fix the issue in my test
on scsi_debug,
so:

Tested-by: Ming Lei <ming.lei@redhat.com>

And it is a typical race between removing queue kobj and adding children of
this queue kobj, we can't acquire q->sysfs_lock in blk_unregister_queue()
because of sysfs's limit(may cause deadlock), so one state has to be used
for this purpose, just like what register/unregister hctx kobjs does,
and it should
be fine to use QUEUE_FLAG_REGISTERED here. More changes are required if
we use e->registered, so this patch looks fine:
