Not sure if the current behaviour is wrong, or worth of a fix.

Bypassing io scheduler for dm-rq is only for sake of performance
because there has been io scheduler for dm device already, and we
just don't want to schedule these requests twice.

Given it can be thought as error handling, there shouldn't be big
difference to put request in scheduler queue or ->dispatch list
when queue is quiesced or stopped. What matters is that all these
requests can be dispatched again after queue switches back.
