block: don't release queue's sysfs lock during switching elevator
cecf5d87ff20 ("block: split .sysfs_lock into two locks") starts to release & acquire sysfs_lock before registering/un-registering elevator queue during switching elevator for avoiding potential deadlock from showing & storing 'queue/iosched' attributes and removing elevator's kobject. Turns out there isn't such deadlock because 'q->sysfs_lock' isn't required in .show & .store of queue/iosched's attributes, and just elevator's sysfs lock is acquired in elv_iosched_store() and elv_iosched_show(). So it is safe to hold queue's sysfs lock when registering/un-registering elevator queue. The biggest issue is that commit cecf5d87ff20 assumes that concurrent write on 'queue/scheduler' can't happen. However, this assumption isn't true, because kernfs_fop_write() only guarantees that concurrent write aren't called on the same open file, but the write could be from different open on the file. So we can't release & re-acquire queue's sysfs lock during switching elevator, otherwise use-after-free on elevator could be triggered. Fixes the issue by not releasing queue's sysfs lock during switching elevator.
