A typical scene is blk_mq_in_flight,

blk_mq_get_request blk_mq_in_flight
-> blk_mq_get_tag -> blk_mq_queue_tag_busy_iter
-> bt_for_each
-> bt_iter
-> rq = taags->rqs[]
-> rq->q //---> get a stale request
-> blk_mq_rq_ctx_init
-> data->hctx->tags->rqs[rq->tag] = rq

This stale request maybe something that has been freed due to io scheduler
is detached or a q using a shared tagset is gone.

And also the blk_mq_timeout_work could use it to pick up the expired request.
The driver would also use it to requeue the in-flight requests when the device is dead.

Compared with adding more synchronization, using static_rqs[] directly maybe simpler :)

Thanks
Jianchao
