As far as I understand the block layer requests that have been queued
but for which scsi_request_fn() has not yet been invoked are on the
request_queue.queue_head list. Requests that have been passed to the
SCSI LLD but for which scsi_done() has not yet been invoked are on the
request_queue.timeout_list list. blk_drain_queue() works on the former
list while blk_abort_queue() processes the latter.
