Yup I can tell you why, on 4.11 where I originally did this work
__blk_mq_requeue_request() did this

static void __blk_mq_requeue_request(struct request *rq)
        struct request_queue *q = rq->q;

        trace_block_rq_requeue(q, rq);
        rq_qos_requeue(q, &rq->issue_stat);

        if (test_and_clear_bit(REQ_ATOM_STARTED, &rq->atomic_flags)) {
                if (q->dma_drain_size && blk_rq_bytes(rq))

So it was clearing the started part when it did the requeue.  If that's not what
I'm supposed to be doing anymore then I can send a patch to fix it.  What is
supposed to be done if I did already do blk_mq_start_request, because I can
avoid doing the start until after that chunk of code, but there's a part further
down that needs to have start done before we reach it, so I'll have to do
whatever the special thing is now there.  Thanks,
