The commit 304419d8a7e9 ("mmc: core: Allocate per-request data using the
block layer core") refactored mechanism of queue handling caused
mmc_init_request() can be called just after mmc_cleanup_queue() caused null
pointer dereference.

Another commit bbdc74dc19e0 ("mmc: block: Prevent new req entering queue
after its cleanup") tried to fix the problem. However it actually miss one
corner case.

We could still reproduce the issue mentioned with these steps:
(1) insert a SD card and mount it
(2) hotplug it, so it will leave md->usage still be counted
(3) reboot the system which will sync data and umount the card

So mmc_blk_put wouldn't calling blk_cleanup_queue which actually the
QUEUE_FLAG_DYING and QUEUE_FLAG_BYPASS should stay. Block core expect
blk_queue_bypass_{start, end} internally to bypass/drain the queue before
actually dying the queue, so it didn't expose API to set the queue bypass.
I think we should set QUEUE_FLAG_BYPASS whenever queue is removed, although
the md->usage is still counted, as no dispatch queue could be found then.
