Oh, free as in kfree'd, not blk_mq_free_request. So it's a read-after-
free that you're concerned about, not that anyone explicitly changed a

We at least can't free the flush_queue until the queue is frozen. If the
queue is frozen, we've completed the special fq->flush_rq where its end_io
replaces tags->rqs[tag] back to the fq->orig_rq from the static_rqs,
so nvme's iterator couldn't see the fq->flush_rq address if it's invalid.

The sched_tags concern, though, appears theoretically possible.
