[dm-devel] [PATCH 09/11] block: implement REQ_FLUSH/FUA based interface for FLUSH/FUA requests



Now that the backend conversion is complete, export sequenced
FLUSH/FUA capability through REQ_FLUSH/FUA flags.  REQ_FLUSH means the
device cache should be flushed before executing the request.  REQ_FUA
means that the data in the request should be on non-volatile media on
completion.

Block layer will choose the correct way of implementing the semantics
and execute it.  The request may be passed to the device directly if
the device can handle it; otherwise, it will be sequenced using one or
more proxy requests.  Devices will never see REQ_FLUSH and/or FUA
which it doesn't support.

* QUEUE_ORDERED_* are removed and QUEUE_FSEQ_* are moved into
  blk-flush.c.

* REQ_FLUSH w/o data can also be directly passed to drivers without
  sequencing but some drivers assume that zero length requests don't
  have rq->bio which isn't true for these requests requiring the use
  of proxy requests.
