block: don't call blk_drain_queue() if elevator is not up
Tejun Heo [Thu, 3 Nov 2011 17:52:11 +0000 (18:52 +0100)]
blk_cleanup_queue() may be called before elevator is set up on a
queue which triggers the following oops.

Fix it by making blk_cleanup_queue() check whether q->elevator is set
up before invoking blk_drain_queue.
