Thanks Mike!, above solution worked and the system booted fine now:-)

# uname -r
4.20.0-rc1+
# cat /proc/cmdline
root=/dev/mapper/fedora_ltc--test--ci2-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora_ltc-test-ci2/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora_ltc-test-ci2/swap scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=Y

CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT kernel was not set in my kernel config, will set in future runs.

Thanks Michael!

Regards,
-Satheesh.
