Fix a CFQ crash in "for-2.6.33" branch of block tree

I think my previous patch introduced a bug which can lead to CFQ hitting
BUG_ON().

The offending commit in for-2.6.33 branch is.

commit 7667aa0630407bc07dc38dcc79d29cc0a65553c1

I think I have hit following BUG_ON() in cfq_dispatch_request().

BUG_ON(RB_EMPTY_ROOT(&cfqq->sort_list));

Please find attached the patch to fix it. I have done some stress testing
with it and have not seen it happening again.

o We should wait on a queue even after slice expiry only if it is empty. If
  queue is not empty then continue to expire it.

o If we decide to keep the queue then make cfqq=NULL. Otherwise select_queue()
  will return a valid cfqq and cfq_dispatch_request() can hit following
  BUG_ON().

  BUG_ON(RB_EMPTY_ROOT(&cfqq->sort_list))
