One thing I've noticed is that blk_stack_limits() does not use
blk_queue_io_opt() to set new optimal limit. That means that ra_pages won't
be updated for the new queue. E.g. your DRDB change below will result in
ra_pages not being properly updated AFAICT.

Similarly it isn't clear to me how io_pages would get updated after
blk_stack_limits() updates max_hw_sectors...

Otherwise the patch looks good.
