The scsi_request is a payload item for the block request, it's
located right after the request in memory. These are persistent
allocations, we don't allocate/free them per IO.

blk_mq_ctx are the blk-mq software queues, they are percpu and
allocated when the queue is setup.

blk_mq_hw_ctx is the hardware queue. You probably have just one,
it's allocated when the queue is setup.

struct elevator_queue is allocated when the scheduler is attached
to the queue. This can get freed and allocated if you switch
the scheduler on a queue, otherwise it persists until the queue
is torn down (and the scheduler data is freed).

It should not change unless you switch IO schedulers. If you're
using BFQ and not switching, then it won't change.
