Since it seems like Dave is taking his sweet time with doing the revert
I stared at the code a bit more and I think that I finally found the bug
(thanks to your debugging work for giving me the right hint!).

The patch needs to take into the account a new code introduced by the recent
block layer changes (commit 8f6205cd572fece673da0255d74843680f67f879):

 out:

and not zero hwif->rq if the device is blocked. 

Could you try the attached patch and see if it fixes the issue?

[ Dave: while I appreciate fast handling of my patches I had strongly
  suggested giving this particular one some extra testing (because there
  were a lot of changes in between the time that it has been tested
  against other kernel subsystems).  Yet, it seems that its linux-next
  exposure was minimal at best..  :( ]
