Not sure disk is valid, we only hold the disk when opening a bdev, but
the bdev can be closed during polling. Also disk always holds one
reference on request queue, so if disk is valid, no need to grab queue's
refcnt in bio_poll().

Not sure disk is valid, we only hold the disk when opening a bdev, but
the bdev can be closed during polling. Also disk always holds one
reference on request queue, so if disk is valid, no need to grab queue's
refcnt in bio_poll().
