Subject: [PATCH] floppy: don't call alloc_ordered_workqueue inside the
 alloc_disk loop
X-Extended-Stable: 3.5

commit b54e1f88897bcacc2cd359f48ea3b39eaf55f084 upstream.

Since commit 070ad7e ("floppy: convert to delayed work and single-thread
wq"), we end up calling alloc_ordered_workqueue multiple times inside
the loop, which shouldn't be intended. Besides the leak, other side
effect in the current code is if blk_init_queue fails, we would end up
calling unregister_blkdev even if we didn't call yet register_blkdev.

Just moved the allocation of floppy_wq before the loop, and adjusted the
code accordingly.
