block,scsi: fixup blk_get_request dead queue scenarios
The blk_get_request function may fail in low-memory conditions or during device removal (even if __GFP_WAIT is set). To distinguish between these errors, modify the blk_get_request call stack to return the appropriate ERR_PTR. Verify that all callers check the return status and consider IS_ERR instead of a simple NULL pointer check. For consistency, make a similar change to the blk_mq_alloc_request leg of blk_get_request. It may fail if the queue is dead, or the caller was unwilling to wait.
