I think we should always wait for the freeze to complete.

Lets add iodepth=128

Q_LIVE will protect against the transport itself from queueing, however
when multipath is not used, the transport will return BLK_STS_RESOURCE
which will immediately trigger re-submission, in an endless loop, and
that can prevent forward progress. It is also consistent with what 
nvme-pci does.
