block: don't kick empty queue in blk_drain_queue()
While probing, fd sets up queue, probes hardware and tears down the queue if probing fails. In the process, blk_drain_queue() kicks the queue which failed to finish initialization and fd is unhappy about that. floppy0: no floppy controllers found ------------[ cut here ]------------ WARNING: at drivers/block/floppy.c:2929 do_fd_request+0xbf/0xd0() Hardware name: To Be Filled By O.E.M.
