I reverted to patch on top of linux-next (next-20190218, more specifically).
The problem was gone. I then reverted the revert and the probllem was back.

Sorry, I don't understand the question. git bisect, unless I am missing
something, doesn't revert any patches.

Indeed...

The underlying problem is in the error handling code of ace_setup(),
which calls put_disk() followed by blk_cleanup_queue(). put_disk()
calls disk_release(), which calls blk_put_queue(), which in turn
results in a call to blk_mq_hw_sysfs_release().

Added debug code, with your patch reverted, shows:

######### blk_mq_hw_sysfs_release hctx=cee4a800
...
######### blk_mq_run_hw_queue hctx=cee4a800

blk_mq_hw_sysfs_release() calls kfree(htcx), so accessing it later is most
definitely not a good idea.

No idea why this only causes problems with your patch applied.

I'll send a patch to fix the underlying problem.

Thanks,
Guenter
