Subject: blkcg: fix "scheduling while atomic" in blk_queue_bypass_start

commit e5072664f8237cf53b0bd68a51aa1a7bc69061c5 upstream.

Since 749fefe677 in v3.7 ("block: lift the initial queue bypass mode
on blk_register_queue() instead of blk_init_allocated_queue()"),
the following warning appears when multipath is used with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y.

This patch moves blk_queue_bypass_start() before radix_tree_preload()
to avoid the sleeping call while preemption is disabled.
