[PATCH repost] blkcg: fix "scheduling while atomic" in blk_queue_bypass_start

From: Jun'ichi Nomura
Date: Tue Feb 26 2013 - 00:00:58 EST

Hello Jens,

please consider to pick up this patch.
Without this patch, the warning below splats every when a multipath
device is created.
I got acks from Vivek and Tejun when I posted this for v3.7
and this same patch is still applicable to v3.8.

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.
