Dataplane must check whether a block device is in use before launching
the dataplane thread.  This is necessary since the thread does not
synchronize with the main loop and I/O requests could cause corruption.

One example is when a drive is added and a block job is started before
hotplugging the virtio-blk-pci adapter.  In this case we must not use
dataplane mode.
