[dm-devel] [PATCH 1/3] block: Add blk_queue_copy_limits()

This patch is a preparation for the last patch in this patchset
which changes blk_set_default_limits() to set 0 to max_sectors.

dm uses blk_stack_limits() to merge limits of underlying devices
and copy the end result to the queue.
But if there's no underlying device (like 'zero' target),
max_sectors/max_hw_sectors are left unchanged from the default 0
and just copying it to the queue causes problems.

Provide blk_queue_copy_limits() to get a safe copy with
invalid values fixed-up.
