PATCH 9 of 12

This patch adds a check for busy_configuring to prevent starting a queue
on a drive that may be in the midst of updating, configuring, deleting, etc.

This had a test for if the queue was stopped or plugged but that seemed
to cause issues.
Please consider this for inclusion.

Thanks,
mikem

This is racy, because you don't start the queue when you unset
->busy_configuring later on. For this to be safe, you need to call
blk_start_queue() when you set ->busy_configuring to 0.

Jens, please see Chase's reply to your concerns:

Ok, no worries then if it's simply a going away flag. I wonder if it's
needed at all, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

hey Jens,
  Just a poke since I haven't seen this change go into your block
tree. Is it still in-plan?
