block: don't kick empty queue in blk_drain_queue()
Tejun Heo [Thu, 15 Dec 2011 19:03:04 +0000 (20:03 +0100)]
While probing, fd sets up queue, probes hardware and tears down the
queue if probing fails.  In the process, blk_drain_queue() kicks the
queue which failed to finish initialization and fd is unhappy about
that.

Avoid it by making blk_drain_queue() kick queue iff dispatch queue has
something on it.
