block: make gendisk hold a reference to its queue

commit f992ae801a7dec34a4ed99a6598bbbbfb82af4fb upstream.

The following command sequence triggers an oops.

# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
# echo 1 > /sys/class/scsi_device/0\:0\:1\:0/device/delete
# umount /mnt

This is because bdev holds on to disk but disk doesn't pin the
associated queue.  If a SCSI device is removed while the device is
still open, the sdev puts the base reference to the queue on release.
When the bdev is finally released, the associated queue is already
gone along with the bdi and bdev_inode_switch_bdi() ends up
dereferencing already freed bdi.

Even if it were not for this bug, disk not holding onto the associated
queue is very unusual and error-prone.

Fix it by making add_disk() take an extra reference to its queue and
put it on disk_release() and ensuring that disk and its fops owner are
put in that order after all accesses to the disk and queue are
complete.
