This looks good - I've tested an equivalent patch doing xfstests runs
for more than 24hours now without seeing leaks.

On the long run I'd prefer not having the knowledge of the payload
freeing inside the core scsi code, but that requires either calling
->done for block pc requests, or treating discards as fs requests all
the way, which will require much larger changes.

So for now:
