But say we originally call blk_mq_init_allocated_queue() with
set->nr_hw_queues = 1 and later we call blk_mq_update_nr_hw_queues()
with nr_hw_queues = nr_cpu_ids (say, 4). Then we update (line numbers
from v4.8-rc7):

   2406         set->nr_hw_queues = nr_hw_queues;

So, when we call blk_mq_realloc_hw_ctxs(), we do:

   1998         for (i = 0; i < set->nr_hw_queues; i++) {
   1999                 int node;
   2000
   2001                 if (hctxs[i])
   2002                         continue;
   2003
   2004                 node = blk_mq_hw_queue_to_node(q->mq_map, i);
   2005                 hctxs[i] = kzalloc_node(sizeof(struct blk_mq_hw_ctx),
   2006                                         GFP_KERNEL, node);

Now set->nr_hw_queues = 4 but we only allocated 1 hardware queue, so
we'll scribble off the end of the array.

Similar problem in blk_mq_map_swqueue():

   1850         queue_for_each_hw_ctx(q, hctx, i) {
   1851                 struct blk_mq_ctxmap *map = &hctx->ctx_map;
   1852
   1853                 /*
   1854                  * If no software queues are mapped to this hardware 
queue,
   1855                  * disable it and free the request entries.
   1856                  */
   1857                 if (!hctx->nr_ctx) {
   1858                         if (set->tags[i]) {
   1859                                 blk_mq_free_rq_map(set, set->tags[i], 
i);
   1860                                 set->tags[i] = NULL;
   1861                         }
   1862                         hctx->tags = NULL;
   1863                         continue;
   1864                 }
   1865
   1866                 /* unmapped hw queue can be remapped after CPU topo 
changed */
   1867                 if (!set->tags[i])
   1868                         set->tags[i] = blk_mq_init_rq_map(set, i);

q->nr_hw_queues would now be 4, but we only allocated one element for
set->tags.

Allocating nr_cpu_ids upfront is the easiest way to handle adding
hardware queues up to nr_cpu_ids as needed. Both of these are just
arrays of pointers, so it's not like it's a huge waste of memory.
